The Mayan Apocalypse came and went with nary a firebomb. Nothing cool EVER happens here. Here being Earth.
Anyway, last year I summed up my goals for 2012 in this post, and I was surprised to find that I wasn’t all that ambitious, and I was not very specific either.
Here’s my 2012 resolutions and how they fared:
I also made a goal of reading 100 books last year, but I because of life factors outside of my control, coupled with discovering the show Supernatural and mainlining every season via Netflix, I missed that goal pretty hard. I read 69 books in 2012, according to the smug little Goodreads icon.
So 2013 is upon us, and I have far fewer goals this year.
- Read 100 books. Yeah, I’m trying that again.
- 100 Days of Real Foods. I found this blog and my husband and I thought about doing their 10 day challenge, but we are feeling ambitious so we are recreating their experiment with our own 100 day pledge. So far, so good. In fact, I made some amazing whole wheat tortillas last night that I could probably subsist on for the entire 100 days, if necessary.
- Attend a writing conference. Trying that again, too. But this time, I know that there are several around Seattle that I can shoot for without having to worry about paying airfare or hotel costs.
That’s it! I haven’t made any writing-related goals, really. I’m probably not going to write every single day, as this year promises to be hectic, but hopefully I will still make progress.
But this year I will be positive and I will count even the vaguest of successes as a win.
What are your plans for the new year? How’d your 2012 goals end up?
