New Year's Resolutions

OK, sure... it might be a little late in the game to be making these, but better late than never, right?
  • Try to write (at least) one blog entry a week.  Might help if I would let my perfectionism go a little and realize not everything has to be supermegagreat, and just do something!
  • Exercise (at least) twice a week.
  • Read (at least) one book a month.
  • Write (at least) once every two weeks over at NARPFS, and add (at least) one demo a month.  This way I might actually contribute to the development community and give something back.  (Again, let go of perfect!  Just do anything!)
  • Try doing the Project 365 thing, there's no rule saying you have to start on Jan 1st.  :-)  Thank you Omar for the inspiration.
  • Relearn enough Spanish to (at least) get by on the Peru trip.  Would probably help if I'd actually do any of the BBC Weekly Lessons I signed up for, huh?
  • Stay in touch with friends and family better.  Maybe even call them every now and then.  :-P
  • Actually cook something for myself, in my apartment (at least) once a month.
  • On a similar note, keep my apartment "clean" or at least cleaner :-)
  • Don't be such a workaholic!
See a common theme here?  Nothing like setting the bar low, right?  But maybe it's not so much that, as just giving myself achievable goals.  That way for each bit I go over (if I somehow read 2 books in a month, or whatever it may be), I get to feel that much better.  And, don't they say that you're more likely to work towards a goal if it is achievable?

Really, I just want to get back some of my creativity, and to reconnect and rebuild relationships that aren't as strong as they were.  Force myself to get out of the comfort zone, but get back the  things I've lost.  These are the people and things that are important to me, and I need to remember that.  So, here goes nothing.  Let's all keep our fingers crossed and see what I can accomplish!

UPDATE: For those who want to follow my Project 365 set.
