Day 25: New Years Resolutions
So many months after I started this project I feel the need to finish it - it’s been very busy these past few months with work, events, the holidays… With the new year I feel inspired to build some cool stuff and learn some new skills.
I want to get through these last posts both for closure and for a new beginning - This has been a great goal for the last part of 2014, and although I haven’t been able to keep up with the 30 day limit I originally made, I will have made 30 posts that I would not have written in the first place. I pushed myself in the fall to do as much as possible, and I feel much more comfortable, confident in my skills, and energized to keep learning in my free time (although recently I haven’t had much of it!)
So, I wanted to write my few New Years resolutions that I have come up with so far. I’ll probably make more as the year goes on but it’s a start:
Read more books
- So far this year, I’ve been doing this well! i’m currently reading the Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith (JK Rowling’s Pseudonym) which I really like, although in hardcover it’s hard to carry around. On the train I’ve been reading Beautiful Ruins, which reminds me of Italy and sparks my itch to travel more.
Work on new projects
- Knitting, crocheting, more hardware, coding projects. I feel inspired to really find my passions (I have so many already) so I want to experiment more. I would like this year to try a glass blowing class, and possibly a silver smithing class.
Be more up to date on current events
Eat better and become better at cooking
Write down my dreams
- I’ve started this already as well, and it has been very interesting. Most times I can only remember a few parts of my dreams but even writing those down has been eye opening.
Get my GitHub streak up!
- Perhaps this year I’ll start another personal challenge for myself - I think that this 30 day challenge has really helped me understand how I work, and how I would change something like it if I did it again.
