New Year’s Resolutions

Jan

2013

I’m stating this now: 2013 is going to be a great year for me! I’m going to try not think that I’m setting myself up for failure by actually making a list of resolutions this year, since my procrastination seems to get the better of me at times.

Resolution #1: Get Out of Debt
Discounts on merchandise aren’t worth it if they’re paid with a credit card with a high interest rate that’s not paid in full at the end of every month. This year I’m actually promising myself to take advice from Gail Vaz Oxlade and budget properly in order to climb my way out of consumer debt. It’s going to be a challenge, but living on cash may just be the kick I need to stop my pesky shopping habit.

Resolution #2: Make Some Art
I have a large¬†repository¬†of art and craft supplies: canvas, paint, fabric, glue, yarn, paper, charcoal, you-name-it. Problem is they’ve been sitting in storage containers for as long as I can remember. Heck, I promised to knit my friend a scarf for her birthday four years ago and it’s still on the needle half done! Damn this procrastination.

Resolution #3: Blog More Often
I’m not going to be specific and say I’m going to write a post on my blog at least three times a week (because I’ve already broke that resolution if you take into consideration the date of this post), but I will blog more frequently that I have been. After all, I didn’t design this site for nothing!
