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


Ride a bike.
I haven't actually set eyes on the bicycle in over a month. I should really go out back and make sure it is, in fact, still in our backyard.  Wouldn't it be awful if it was stolen and I never rode it once?

Put hair in a bun that stays all day.

Get published.
No progress to report.

Be able to hold a ten minute conversation in Spanish.
No progress to report. This really hasn't been a good year for language, has it?

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.

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

Get a job!
The bookstore is going well, but it's a part-time job with low pay and it's not in my field so...

Get a museum job!

Take some f*cking Chemistry.
Work in progress.

Sew a dress.
No progress to report.

Eliminate the backlog of “to be posted” blog entries.
Up from 192 to 215.
Aw man, I'm up over two hundred?  I think this is an all-time high.

Eliminate my backlog of books for review.
Up from 29 to 35.
The combination of school beginning up again and working at the bookstore is less time for blogging.  Ugh.

Do something new.
Ceramics.

Do something else new.
