“Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing.” -Abraham Lincoln
I didn’t do so hot with my 2010 New Year’s Resolutions.
2010 resolution: I wanted to use Bedpost regularly.
2010 result: I did okay with this, some months I was better than others.
2010 resolution: I wanted to learn how to roll a joint.
2010 result: I have not.
2010 resolution: Make a perfect red velvet cake.
2010 result: I got closer but not perfection.
2010 resolution: Watch more documentaries.
2010 result: I managed to watch a few, but not nearly as many as I wanted.
2010 resolution: Run a 10k.
2010 result: Not even close.
So let’s see, what’s on tap for 2011?
- I still want to use Bedpost and use it more regularly.
- I still want to learn to roll a joint, which may actually happen in this country.
- Use Bedpost every single time. Look, if you’re going to sleep with me, just know that I’m probably heading for my laptop to record the details as soon as I can stand. For some, that may be awhile.
Other than that, my priorities have changed a bit this year.
I want to learn to speak Dutch. I know I probably won’t be totally fluent by the end of 2011 but I’d like to be significantly more fluent than I am today.
And that’s pretty much my only new 2011 goal. Maybe I have PTSD from all the changes in 2010.
