I was talking to T today about New Year’s resolutions and I decided that I need something a little different from my usual “I won’t procrastinate” motto that I try to stick to and then put in the closet to do later. So, after reading the latest issue of A List Apart, I’ve decided that my New Year’s resolutions are going to be more along the lines of technology-related. Here’s a list I’ve come up with:
- Move Amadaun.net to a new host that is WordPress-friendly.
- Move my Coyote Dreams blog from Dan’s site to the new A.net.
- Redesign and recode A.net/blog with Web Standards being the first thing of mind.
- Revamp and add content to A.net that brings in a variety of different readers.
- Have readers: This means actually writing content in the blog worth reading about!
Other resolutions that are slowly filtering into my mindset are anywhere from the lines of hit lvl 60 on both my warlock gnome and my tauren druid before the year is out, start drawing more – not just painting, writing stories for both my Atlantis series and my new Stories from the Paradise People series, getting something published even if it’s just in a magazine, working out more (yeah, right), and get an Outdoor Education internship as well as an English internship. I’m also trying to tell myself not to be so literal, stubborn, hypocritical, and hard to deal with, if not for my sake, but for T’s. She does it now (though I still don’t know how), but she puts up with me. I want to try to work on it though since the ringing in of 2007 means that this is the year I’ll be moving in with her (not for another 6 months but oh well).
This year, I think the biggest resolution I’m setting for myself is to be harder on myself, goal-wise. I need to motivate myself and stay with it (which I suppose will go hand in hand with not procrastinating so much).
Of course, I’m also going to try not to be so sick and catch every bacteria and virus in the line of touch. But I’ve already seemed to lost that battle being sick and still running a fever and throwing up. Wonderful isn’t it?
Come on 2007! Bring it on! I’ll sneeze on you and bring you down with me. This is going to be a good year.
Now, if you’ll excuse me. I’m going to go pass out since I’m still feeling really groggy and ill.
