The Promise of a Better Tomorrow



Sylvia and I rang in the new year by wearing these silly hats and playing two games of Settlers of Catan (Cities & Knights expansion). Both games were very close, and we won one each. Sylvia sure is competitive...

Things I'd like to do this year:

1) Finish "Journey to the Edge of Nowhere."
2) Visit friends in Vancouver and Victoria.
3) Write and sell something with my name on it.
4) Buy a recliner and/or sectional.
5) Relax on said furniture and read the Harry Potter books. (No spoilers, please!)
6) Watch the new Star Trek film in IMAX on opening night.
7) Host some board game/wine and cheese/bad movie nights at our place.
8) Work out. Seriously. It's getting ridiculous.
9) Build my bookshelves.
10) Post at least 100 times to this blog - hopefully with content worth reading rather than the usual filler.
11) Take a photography course.
12) Take a graphic design course.

I'll post when I accomplish each of these mighty quests! Not a bad project for 2009.

A fine list of resolutions! Thank you for sharing them, I hope you succeed.

I've already wrecked my New Year's Resolutions:

1) Set reasonable goals for myself.
2) Don't **** up.

I am told that #2 is an unattainable goal as it is too vague, and anyway it ****s up #1. Oh, well, stay the course. The rest of 2009 is an open book.

Your resolutions are great! I actually had #1 in mind when I was writing mine. Hopefully I haven't overreached.

#2 may be unattainable, but it makes for a pretty good ethos. May as well shoot for the impossible - in the attempt, you might come close to greatness.
