Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, you loverly people. It's that time of year again! Time to make resolutions and to see how we did on the old ones. Here are the resolutions from last year (only 5 people made them):

Read more Philosophy
Do some volunteer work
Try to learn Spanish
Complete at least one art project
Go on a road trip

Sell one good photograph
Work out more
Learn how to make fire
Memorize history of photography
Read opinionated literature

Also try to learn Spanish with the boys.
Procrastinate less.
Get outside every day.
Keep with the free medical clinic.
Comb my hair every day.
Go on adventures.

Pick 24 books from lists of best books (that I collected from several sources) and read them. I better get them picked so I can post them.

Downhill ski once this winter.
Go to a Cubs game.
Do a big bike ride over a weekend.
Lose 5 more pounds.

Well, considering my track record with previous years, I should hold these resolutions with an open hand, but here goes.
Remember my google password so that I can post here.
Learn Spanish (Madie and Gwen- looks like we need to do something about this!
Go outside everyday- more than just to the car.
Go on that big bike ride with Dad
Mess around in a canoe "because there is nothing half so fine as..."

Well, I definitely did some volunteer work. I did not go on a road trip, but I did go camping. My Spanish is not a lot better than last year, but I have been working on it all year, and I did read some philosophy, but not continually. I don't know about an art project. I drew some pictures? Nothing big, though.

This year my resolutions are:
- Take a shower every day
- Exercise every day, with at least 5 days including cardio
- Keep my hair short and neat
- Learn more about feminism (I've started off by buying Simone De Beauvoir's "The Second Sex")
- Learn Spanish
- Stop eating processed sugar
