mdlbear: the positively imaginary half of a cubic mandelbrot set (Default)
[personal profile] mdlbear

So... a year and a day ago I posted a list of a dozen lo res resolutions.

  • Eat less. Not so much.
  • Exercise more. This was a total miss -- I probably exercised less than any year since middle school.
  • Make more music. Well... maybe. Surely a fan guest concert at Baycon counts for something.
  • Make less sense. Probably mostly a miss, too.
  • Get closer to as much sleep as I need. A little. I think I went to bed before midnight more often than not, so ok.
  • Need less sleep. Total miss -- I seem to need more. Not happy about that, but it's out of my control, really.
  • Spend more time with my family... A little more. More time in the living room with Colleen, certainly.
  • Including my family of choice. Did pretty well on this one, I think. Less time than I wanted, but the limits were imposed by budget and schedule, not lack of interest.
  • Get more done at work. Definitely hit this one, thanks to a change of work environment and goals. No planning on my part.
  • Make some new friends. Again, thanks to a change of work environment, I'd say I hit this one. Not, again, by planning.
  • Get closer to the friends I have. Not much success on this one, though my friendship with [livejournal.com profile] pocketnaomi certainly deepened. Anyone else who thinks we've gotten closer -- or farther apart, for that matter -- is welcome to chime in.
  • Get to know myself better. Some, certainly.

So... a mixed bag. I'm just going to let this list roll over to next year -- it's a good set of goals.

better acquaintances than we were certainly, given the distance between us - and we'll be coming out to Baycon this year, looks like.

Yay! It's always difficult for me to self-assess that one.

I'm not positive he's going to Baycon. [livejournal.com profile] mdlbear, remember you said you'd come with us to Conduit if we get a concert? I've heard from them; they can't promise absolutely because the programmer can't get authorization yet for the room use, but they'd really like us to, and will try to tell me ASAP.

Cool! Yes, I remember, and was going to mention it if you hadn't beaten me to it.

I like that. I think I'm going to adopt it tentatively.

I like your modified list. Good luck to both of us!
