Be able to hold a ten minute conversation in Spanish.

Complete 12 paintings.
I'm working on an oil painting that I started last year.  It's a small canvas, originally meant to be a study but now it will be elevated to a full painting just so that I can make my goal for the year.

Travel somewhere new.
No progress to report.

Exercise 60 minutes a week; by the end of year expand this to 210 minutes a week.
Minor update: I made a mini-goal of trying to hit 10,000 steps a day, which almost promises I'll manage to exercise at least ten-twenty minutes each day.  Of course, that won't get me to the half hour a day I'm reaching for, and it won't make me break a great sweat, but at least I'm moving around a little more.

Get a job!
Hired by the SFMOMA.
But that position was temporary.

At least the numbers are moving in the right direction again...

Eliminate my backlog of books for review.
Up from 32 to 38.
Just once I'd like to get these stinkin' blogs to work together and reduce the backlog on both in the same month.

Do something new.

Do something else new.
Nothing to report.

I'm really unmotivated and lazy this year.  I don't know why.  I felt like I was doing a decent job of knocking my resolutions out in 2013!  It's like I just can't focus anymore.
