NYR Update #2

So, yeah I do this a lot but I think it’s always best to look back and see how far along in your goals you’ve gotten.

So this is my second update on my NYRs.  The first update was a month after I made them, and my second update is now a third of the way into the year.  My third look back should be at the 2/3 mark, so roundabout the end of August.

My First Dance!

So, the boyfriend got some money for his birthday recently and with it, he went out and bought a brand new webcam.  He did this for a couple of reasons.

1) His no longer had working video and Skype-ing was harder without that.

2) He wanted to be able to do vlogs (video blogs) and other sorts of YouTube-postable things in his free time.

3) He wanted me to finally be able to do videos of all the dance covers I’ve been learning.

NYR Update

I appear to be doing well on my NYRs.

I’ve finished 5 books already this year and am halfway through the 6th.  I have 3 more books in the series I’m reading to be as caught up with that as I want to be.  Then I’m starting on all single-read books (no series.)

I’ve definitely been writing more.  While I’ve also been posting blurbs up here, I have at least 3 rants in my folder that I have to finish and post, and then work on some more reviews.  I’m keeping up well with NEW correspondence but the backed-up stuff is still backed-up and I’ll get to it soon I hope (Sorry Rae, but the research paper that is my response to you is taking forever to get right.  I want this to be structured, sound and well-researched, so I’m not repeating myself and I can get the argument to be the way I want.  So much more than just typing as I read.)

I’m also doing a good job with the backed up bills (the gas bill is down and the rent is almost done being payed off as well.)  I’m hoping to get a decent chunk of money to myself for groceries and stuff soon, which ties into the “I wanna eat better” resolution.  I’ve started doing a bit more grocery shopping again, instead of just eating what I bring home from Subway and what the boys have in the house.  I’m making things again, though not necessarily cooking but I hope that’s changing soon as well.

New Year Resolutions

It’s official.  I hate Blogger.  WordPress does the whole custom layout thing so much better.  And now that I figured out how to have more than one blog (oops…)

So I’m moving my life-condensing blog over here, where I enjoy the…everything more.

And since I am on the cusp of a new year, I’d like to start off by posting my New Years Resolutions (NYRs.)

NYRs are something everybody does.  We all say at the beginning of the year that we’re finally going to lose that 15 pounds or we’re going to work out more or we’re going to go out more or whatever.  And yet…that never seems to happen.

First, I’d like to give you all a view of what my NYRs are going to be (LiveJounal asked us this as a “Writer’s Block” question, which is what got me thinking of it.)
