2014 New Year’s Resolutions: DecemberUpdate  
2014 New Year’s Resolutions: December Update
Or: Chronicling My Lack of Ambition and Achievement in 2014
Seriously, why do I even bother?  At this point I'm chronicling this just to illustrate my own lack of direction, not because I've seriously considered or worked toward completing any of these resolutions for months.



Ride a bike.
As I look over the list, I think this is the most likely candidate for getting solved in the last month of the year.  After I wrap up classes at DeAnza, I hope to find a free afternoon so Seanie and I can at least sort the basics out.

Put hair in a bun that stays all day.
Youtube.  Gotta find a tutorial and just work with it.

Get published.
Not happening.

Be able to hold a ten minute conversation in Spanish.
Not happening.

Complete 12 paintings.
Not happening.

Complete 1 painting.
Possible.  Not probable, but could theoretically happen.

Travel somewhere new.
Crater Lake National Park in Oregon.

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!
Hired by the bookstore, but that's only part-time and not in my field so...

Get a museum job!
No progress to report.

Take some f*cking Chemistry.
Work in progress.

Sew a dress.
Not happening.

Eliminate the backlog of “to be posted” blog entries.
Down from 207 to 196.
Progress?

Eliminate my backlog of books for review.
Up from 39 to 41.
Ugh.

Do something new.
Ceramics.

Do something else new.
No progress to report.
