    That's the best resolution I've heard in years.

    I don't think I posted my resolutions, so here's my thing:

    Mantra: "Make it count"
    -Pay more attention to my body's needs to achieve a healthy weight and sleep schedule.
    -Quit being such a shitty deadbeat aunt to the kids in my life.
    -Fill my heart with good things; art, dates and travel so as to not be a crotchety old drunk lady.
    -Turn my financial situation around. Preferably not wanting to shoot myself when I think about debt and repo.
    -Fix my bike and drive less.

    Since Jan. 1:
    I don't rush things, I think about it, and I'm much more careful with my words and actions, to make my connections count. Seems to be working.
    -Cut out salt, and I'm trying, with not much success to sleep better. I have a new alarm clock, and a new goal to at least be in bed an hour before I plan to sleep, and at least get out of the bed and sleep somewhere else if I must, after the first snooze. Also lost somewhere around 6 lbs since Sundance and keeping it off.
    -I bought valentines cards yesterday to send to the little shits, and had a lengthy text conversation with my 11 year old niece about Justin Timberlake.
    -I am taking myself to an art date this Friday, and planning a girls night in next Friday. Debating Sasquatch in addition to Coachella, since Spain is nothing but a pipe dream.
    -I had an appointment with the school's financial advisor. How does one refinance a car?
    -I found my bike.

    My resolutions are all in progress. They're not things that were meant to be done in a month though. I'm working hard at bettering myself and I'm happy with the progress so far. At the very least, I am embracing challenges instead of shying away from them.

    Some mid year resolutions:

    1. Finish reading Ulysses, Gravity's Rainbow, and Wind-Up Bird Chroncile
    2. Finish listening to the entire Bob Dylan and Neil Young catalogs
    3. Start playing music again
    4. Become a decent cook

    I have taken better care of myself, lost 7 pounds by eating less and cutting back on alcohol, sugar and other fattening stuff.
    I have really enjoyed putting my own needs first for a change. I'm learning how to say no when I don't really want to do something. That one is tough but I'm getting better.
    I cut off contact with someone that I was in a toxic friendship with, that I still feel sad about, but I had to do it.
    My new Spanish teacher is much more relaxed than my first but I need to keep working on my conversational skills. That's my weakest area.
    I feel really happy these days and I am grateful.

    Guess I'm doing OK at the half-year mark.

    I purposely chose not to make any resolutions this year, so I'm doing pretty damn good thus far.

    I decided I was going to work on my confidence and standing up for myself, it's been going very well. I have had some difficult conversations with people I care about that really helped the relationships, I have negotiated a better salary with another raise to come shortly, I have even returned food that was prepared wrong. I wish I had done this years ago.

    I have pretty much nailed this.

    - Trying new recipes left and right and have improved my over knowledge and confidence in the kitchen
    - On 2 soccer teams, beat my turkey trot 5k time from last year by 1:30, could be working out more but opt to drink beer instead - still a total improvement and I've dropped 6-8 pounds from last year at this time
    - Seattle: Decibel, Austin: Austin Psych Fest
    - I think I've hit 68 concerts but adding festivals on top of that suffices. Also I won a lot of concert tickets this year, which was rad.
    - I might have only read 9 or 10 actual books but there's still time. I read a lot of great longform pieces and articles this year as well.

    How has everyone else fared?

    Failed miserably; I ended up reading 5,000 pages of Robert Caro biographies, a 900 page book about American politics from 1973-1976, and a shit ton of New Yorker articles, long form journalism, music and film criticism, and way too much writing about American whiskey. Didn't even pick up a novel.

    Yeah, didn't do so well there myself. Got two full ones under the belt, The Amazing Adventures Of Kavalier & Clay and Madam Bovary, and am a bit over half way through Anna Karenina right now, which I've been reading on and off since late August. Mostly off. Next year I'm lowing my goal to 12 for one a month and gonna try to include some less heavy literature.

    I am for sure more relaxed but my health is just ok, I still exercise several times a week but have gained some weight, interestingly I don't worry about it as much because I'm in a way better place mentally. That said, it has been a pretty tough year. Recently I have been putting my own needs on hold a bit for family reasons but sometimes you have to I guess. But I am very happy with my relationships right now. And I have some basic Spanish conversation skills now too. As for being grateful, I know I am, but should take more time to acknowledge it. I don't think I'm going to make new resolutions this year though. Cheers to next year everyone, all the best in 2015!!

    Aww I didn't make any. I was hoping maybe I had resolved to become employed because I did actually achieve that, albeit not a great job. I will try to work on some resolutions when the new thread comes out. This year was a struggle for me.
