It’s that time of year again! Some people think it’s silly to make new year’s resolutions because “you can just change any time you want why wait for the start of the year”, but those people need to add be less cynical to their own resolutions. Yes, you can change at any time, but there’s something nice about the idea of starting fresh at the beginning of the year.
Finish my novel! – This will probably be on my list forever until I actually finish and publish a novel. Or maybe it’ll still be on my resolutions list after that as “finish my next novel”.
Sew things – I did some sewing this year and I loved getting to see my skills improve. This year I want to sew even more costumes and attend some cons to wear them!
Earn my teacher’s license – I just have my student teaching this semester and then passing the PRAXIS left. Then I’ll be a ~real~ teacher.
Travel! – I did a lot of traveling in 2016 and loved it. I want to keep it up in 2017! I especially want to make it to Disneyworld and Disneyland this year, it’s been too long since I’ve been to Disney and I miss it. I also want to try to make it to another new country.
Stay in touch with friends – I am not good at keeping in contact with my friends who live far away. This year I will do better, starting with visiting friends who I have been promising to visit and haven’t (hi Meredyth, Brennen, Casey).
Fight the orange menace – Support efforts to protect human rights and protest the man with tiny hands.
Try new things – I don’t know what those new things will be, but I want to do them!
Be more – patient, kind, forgiving, generous, brave, adventurous.
What about you? What are your new year’s resolutions?
