It's Twenty-Ten!

I tell people all the time how terrible of a blogger I am. I've never denied it. I was determined to write this post yesterday and took to Twitter and asked people to punch me in the face repeatedly if I did not write it. Did I write it? Well of course I forgot. Apparently even the threat of getting my face punched off doesn't make me want to blog. I feel like my life is so... boring and average! I do the same things every day, and they usually aren't fun to write about and I often don't want to revisit my day, you know?

Now on to the meat of this blog post... my New Year's resolutions! I put much thought into them. I usually don't do resolutions, because of course I never keep them (does anybody??), but I made one last year. My resolution was to read 100 books. I didn't quite make it, but got dang close. Final count was at 93 I believe. I'm still proud because that's more than I probably would have normally read in the year without the resolution hanging over my head. I do have to say it also hindered me. I wasn't able to write nearly as much as I wanted to because I knew I needed to read more. I can't help but think of what else I would have gotten accomplished had I not made that resolution. I don't regret it because I loved and enjoyed every book in its own special way, it just bums me a little. So this year, I'm making no hard resolutions. I don't want to limit myself. Now that I've made you read two paragraphs, I shall tell you my resolutions. They are as follows:

1. Blog more
2. Write more
3. Try to see the positive side of life again and not be so openly negative

Notice I never said anything like, "blog three times a week" or, "finish my WIP this year." I do not want to hinder myself again. I think all three of these goals are attainable, save maybe the third. :p I kid, I kid. But seriously, even if I make like five blog posts this year, that will be blogging more, and if I write 10,000ish words, I will be writing more than I did last year. I'm going to try not to look at it like that, because I'm a pretty lazy person and don't want to start off on a negative note. See? I'm being positive! Or trying to anyway. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
