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.
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!
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.
