Hello 2012: Some New Year (sorta) Resolutions

I’m not big on New Year resolutions, but here are a few things I’d like to work on this year.

This year I want to spend more time outside. I’m going to leave early so I can walk more places instead of taking the bus. I want to sit outside on sunny days. I’m going to have more beach days on the weekends. I want to walk home across the harbour bridge from work.

This year I want to practice more creativity. I miss crafting. I used to enjoy hobbies like making my own jewelry, sketching, ceramics and scrapbooking. Being creative doesn’t mean I have to buy a new scrapbook, but I want to go back to crafting and creating. It makes me really happy.

This year I want to read more. This is something else that used to make me really happy that I rarely do anymore. I want to read more books, and avoid TV all together. I want to read to learn, but mostly I want to read for fun again. I think I’ll start with Tina Fey’s Bossypants. I heard it was a good read.

This year I want consume less and save money. I want to stop buying things I don’t need and collecting “stuff.” I find it shocking how much stuff I seem to collect. I want to get rid of the clutter in my room, and free up some space in my life so I can free up some space in my soul… dude (seriously though).

What are your goals for this year?
