Happy New Year All! Been meaning to make a post for a week now but somehow time slips away so I'm writing this earlier in the day. (ETA: And now posting late into the night. LOL.)
The Holidays were one big blur once again. When December started I thought I would be more productive but I always seem to forget how time consuming the holiday season is. Throw in the fact that I got a new PC for Christmas and the transition back from Mac to Windows pushed me into January before I knew it.
I have not regularly been a resolution person when it comes to the new year but it does give me an excuse to rededicate myself and steer my life in the direction I'd like it to be heading in so I am pushing myself to follow 3 big resolutions.
Get Fit - The older I get the harder it is to stay in shape when the average day does not lend itself to a lot of opportunities for activity. So far this week my effort to put aside a set amount of time to get some exercise has worked but other things (like late night writing) has suffered from it. It will take awhile to find time for everything.
Write, Write, Write - I almost think there are too many outlets for one's words and I feel I may have stretched myself too far (as I tend to do/very ambitious I can be) and as a result almost all of my for fun writing suffered the last few months as my workload intensified. Even my most reliable outlet Twitter can go in dry spells but I do think that direction is what will work here too. Short, fast, thoughts as they come posts will be my target here, but you know how I tend to ramble (like now). We'll see. More importantly will be my prose work, where I should be focusing my time and energy. Again I have some fic I'd like to continue and I hope to this year.
Be Social - I think I really need to work on my time management (which is LOL because I do try to schedule my day to fit everything in) but as what feels like a broken record, I just tend to lose track of many relationships because of lack of time/energy and I really want that to be different. Will it be different, I don't know but nothing will change if you don't try. I'd rather annoy you with constant reminders that I want to interact with you than giving off the idea that I don't care. Because I do.
P.S. Today was the birthday of the one and only sandoz_iscariot, a dear friend and fellow fanatic of ALL THE THINGS. Technically I tweeted you already but you can take credit for being the reason I finally posted on here again so I can wish you merriment on here as well. :)
P.P.S. I know I need to update all my icons here. Also need to find Photoshop since I'm back on windows. And it's like changing curtains, need to spruce things up here. Done with doing layouts, too damn time consuming. (And now I'm rambling ...)
