That’s the update.
Half the year done, and I haven’t done JACK.
Let’s go over the list, shall we?
Work on being a better photographer. I’ve barely taken any pictures, those I have taken have been on my cell phone, and I haven’t charged my digital camera in months.
Strive to write every day. I wasn’t doing well with this one previously, but in the last three or four weeks I’ve been doing better. I have been writing every day. And I feel much better.
Delightfully Happy blog – now defunct. I really wanted to succeed with this one, but I just couldn’t keep it up. Not because I couldn’t find something to be happy about every day, but because I had so much going on I didn’t have time to post. I kept a list in MS Word for a while, hoping to post as I had time, but I got so far behind I finally gave up.
Do not keep Netflix movies longer than 2 weeks. Miserable fail. I’ve had one for at least two months, I swear. But now, with Netflix’s new pricing, I soon won’t have any DVDs from Netflix to keep, so…Win?
Use new veggies. Um, yeah. I did Baby Eggplant. And I think I did another veggie. But yet another massive fail.
Watch more hockey. Fail.
Visit 5 places in the 1000 Places to See Before You Die list. Nada. Yet. I plan on going to Charleston in a couple of months. I looked into the Spoleto Festival, and it wasn’t quite what I expected (or was interested in, to be honest).
Watch movies from the AFI list. Count: 0
Read 12 books from the BBC 100 List. Now, I did try, I swear. I read Wuthering Heights, and hated every second of it. Then I tried reading Love in the time of Cholera, and I wanted to dig my eyeballs out so I couldn’t read it anymore. I didn’t finish. And that’s when I gave up. (Although, I have started reading Pride and Prejudice, and am so far enjoying it.)
Overall, as you can tell, massive fail. But I did so well last year – do I get credit for that?
How are you doing on your 2001 resolutions and goals?
