2014 New Year’s Resolutions: September Update

2014 New Year’s Resolutions: September Update
Or: Chronicling My Lack of Ambition and Achievement in 2014

Ride a bike.
No progress to report.  Seanie keeps insisting that something is broken with my bike, so he can't teach me how to ride it.

Put hair in a bun that stays all day.
No progress to report, and that's sad, because I'm pretty sure an afternoon with some Youtube videos is all I would need to knock this goal off my list.

Get published.
No progress to report.

Be able to hold a ten minute conversation in Spanish.
No progress to report.  I should really blow the dust off of my Spanish textbook and get cracking on this, many other things to not do!

Complete 12 paintings.
No progress to report.

Travel somewhere new.
Crater Lake National Park in Oregon.
I'm marking this one done because I don't think I'll be heading anywhere else new this year, not when I've just renewed my Disneyland Annual Passport.

Exercise 60 minutes a week; by the end of year expand this to 210 minutes a week.
No progress to report.

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

Get a job!
I'm working at the bookstore and it looks like they'll keep me around, so I technically fulfilled this one.  But when I made this resolution, what I really meant was

Get a museum job!
So no progress to report on that front.

Take some f*cking Chemistry.
Registered for another chemistry class this fall.  It starts on the 22nd at friggin' 7:30 in the morning.
I decided to take the class that early so that I'd still have the rest of my day to work/paint/whatevs, but man, that early start is gonna SUCK.

Sew a dress.
No progress to report.

Eliminate the backlog of “to be posted” blog entries.
Up from 183 to 192.
This is such a lost cause...

Eliminate my backlog of books for review.
Down from 32 to 29.
Progress continues, slowly but surely.

Do something new.

Do something else new.
No progress to report.
