Resolutions in the New Year

Weight and Health:

  • Lose 36 lbs over [48/36] weeks.  Fit comfortably in [my smallest jeans/a size 6]. 
  • Be active a little every day, a good amount (1/2 hour+ once a week, a lot (2+ hours, a hike) once a month)
  • Get rid of encroaching flab under arms; have a stomach I don’t mind being seen in a swimsuit.
  • Eat more vegetables: at least half the plate at least 3x/week
  • Be able to handle the stairs at any of the given local parts without panting. 


  • Have Rin/Girey finished and ready to Kickstart by April at latest (this allows for working on it in JaNoWriMo and MaNoWriMo)
  • Submit at least one story a month for publication
  • Addergoole:
    • Get Addergoole E-books available
    • Work on B-sides and have at least 10 5 available before the end of the Addergoole Year


  • Go to at least three social events this year
  • Make at least one friend I feel comfortable hanging out with for, say, coffee once in a while


  • Set boundaries. Tell people when they’re making me uncomfortable.
  • Language: learn how to speak in un-ambiguous language and ask for clarification when I think someone else is being ambiguous


  • Find an marginalization organization plan that works and stick with it. (so far ToDoist seems to be working very nicely.


How about you?

  1. So far I’ve only got a small list of resolutions for projects: Crafts – Make a “line” of something small and inexpensive in polymer clay. Practise, practise, practise, practise. – Find out what I could make beyond bottles and the above, then work on that too. – Begin to draw again. Writing – Finish up (and edit) the drafts for the five “less short than short story length” wip’s and the ? “less than drabble length” wip’s that are in my folder. – Write a lot more. – Non-fiction: Finish the ToS for premade ebook covers (short term goal).

      • I’m not entirely sure yet, I got a few ideas. The photos of said ideas are abysmal and will be taken again in the morning. 1. I got these simplified brush earrings and I could probably do a few more artist’s tools. The brush handle was a colour I mixed for something else and I don’t have more of it, so I’d need to find a different one. 2. I made a “stone” with random carvings and when it’s baked I’ll paint into those with blue glow-in-the-dark varnish. I could make and sell a few together. 3. I could make small critters/monsters. I made this one test subject out of mixed left-over fimo. Obviously it’s very crude and not smoothed, but here’s a side view and a view from the back. What would you like to see in polymer clay? EDIT: Our weather didn’t allow pictures that were any better, so I’ll reply back to this comment when I got something 🙁

        • Ooh, the brushes are cute. 🙂 (they’re all cute, the brushes just caught my attention) First answer that came to mind was Kitty! 3 guesses why -) The small critters seem very intriguing.

          • Heh, we do have an excellent way of never surprising each other, don’t we? I’ll try and see if I can’t come up with something related to cats. Thank you for your comments 🙂
