2012 New Year's Resolutions  
Last year, I made a list of New Year's resolutions and then tried, every month, to update my journal with progress on each goal. Actively tracking and following up on the goals forced me to think about them instead of forgetting them within a few days of writing them down, as usually happens. In the end, I managed to meet four of the six goals. This year, I shall attempt to continue with the updates.

2012 New Year's Resolutions

1. Get married.
Seanie and I have tentatively set a date for May 30th, but we have an awful lot of planning to do if we're going to make that deadline so we'd better get on that.

2. Move out from my parents' house.
This was a goal last year that I just didn't make; it better happen this year because it will be rather awkward to have a husband but still live with my mom and dad.

3. Get a 4.0.
I managed to do this last year, but of course a new year means I have to start again at ground zero.

4. Graduate from SJSU.
I am currently on track to graduate at the end of the Fall 2012 semester with a BA in Art History and a minor in anthropology. Let's do everything possible to ensure this will happen.

5. Complete at least one internship, preferably two.
I've got my internship at the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum up and running, but this won't be enough. I mean, it'll be nice to have the experience of a small, provincial museum but I'm also going to need to see what the environment of a world-renowned institution, like the De Young Museum or Legion of Honor in San Francisco, is like. I hope that if I complete the Egyptian Museum internship by summer, I can sign on with another museum in the second half of the year.

6. Create an awesome work of art.
Yeah. Self-explanatory.

7. Set up – and stick with – a fitness routine.
Totally didn't do this last year, but my stomach's getting bigger and squishier so it absolutely must happen this year.

8. Eliminate the backlog of “to be posted” blog entries.
So I have a day planner. Every day I scribble out what I did or topics I want to write about. At some point during the day, I try to get on the computer so that I can write it up as a daily blog entry. Unfortunately, I often get busy and don't get around to writing up that particular day's topic. I've now developed quite a backlog of entries I intend to write, and this year I want to get around to doing it. I know that no one is going to read the backlogged entries, but I think it's important to do just for my own memories' sake.

9. Eliminate my backlog of books for review.
I've got quite a tall pile of books to review for fashion_piranha; about half are from publishers and half are from Amazon Vine. This year, I want to get all caught up so that I'm consistently reviewing books within a month of their release date.

10. Do one thing completely new.
What it says. Again, self-explanatory.
