2016 New Year's Resolutions: Final Update

Seanie and I had originally planned to attend a New Year's Eve party tonight, but the hostess got sick and the party has been canceled. I don't mind. A quiet evening in sounds just fine to me. I can sit here at my desk and contemplate all the ways I failed to hit the resolutions made last January.

2016 New Year's Resolutions

Eliminate blogging backlog
k00kaburra : up from 421 in January to 612 entries today
fashion_piranha : up to 205 entries

I've suspended my book blog because, funny enough, when you work in a bookstore you just don't have time to write book reviews anymore.  Who knew?  I haven't yet decided what to do with it.  I might restart in March, after I've had some time to rest up and think about the mission and purpose of the book blog.  I might put it aside because I have another review project in the works that will take up what little free time I hav,e and I'd prefer to focus my energy there.  We'll see.

Get my weight to match my driver's license.
My hypothesis that assigning myself a target weight instead of target exercise time was a huge flop.  It turns out that when I'm busy, I don't think about any of this stuff.  Next year I'll have to make a strong effort to build time for exercise into my daily routine, because if it's not there and forced I just don't think about it.

Roam and ramble the world a bit.
January: Denver
April: Tokyo
May: Chicago
June: Orlando

While travel certainly slowed down in the second half of 2016 - other than a quick road trip down to Los Angeles in early October I don't think I even left the Bay Area - I did suceed in visiting several new cities, including one international one.  That makes this a good travel year!

Get creative!
Nope.  Not even a little.

Back in January I noted that this was a "second tier" goal, and thought that I might stash money away for a ceramic studio membership while I slaved away at work.  The small silver lining in my uncreative year is that I did, in fact, manage to put a little bit of money aside so in 2017 I can go ahead and pay studio fees.  Now I just need to find a studio with hours compatible with my work schedule, and that will be a good start for next year.
