Well, it's 2009. 2008 was one of the roughest years for me, honestly... and just so that people know (cos there really is no point in keeping it a secret...) Tim and I are no longer together. We each have our own stuff to go through and deal with, and we are working things out in an amicable way, so no worries. No need for sympathies or anything. We are moving on.
So, time for some more changes, and hopefully in this new year they will all be for the best. I actually have some New Year's Resolutions this year, that I am going to try my darnedest to stick to.
1.) Start paying off my debt!
2.) Gain 10 pounds - I want to actually hit 100lbs this year! So this all involves a better eating and exercise program. Need to take more vitamins, need to drink more milk and juice, need to actually plan proper meals. I've considered maybe going to the gym, because Blue was thinking about it... but I'm not sure how much I am going to get out of going to the gym for only two months, and once Blue goes back home in February, I'll have no one to work out with anyway...
3.) Finish my outstanding commissions!!! I am seriously posting my list up here, and finishing them off, one by one, by the end of this year. AND I am going to do more personal art, dammit.
4.) Figure out my limits, and when enough is enough... I have to watch that I'm not crossing boundaries, without knowing it. I'm very self-conscious about this, so... I guess this would just be training in being more aware of my actions, and being more aware of other people's feelings.
5.) Work hard and play hard.
6.) Love as much, and as openly as I possibly can. Not get trapped in being as limited and scared as I have been in the past. Try to live life and love it to the fullest capacity that I can, and try to learn from past mistakes.
7.) Get up no later than 7am on the weekdays, and not be 5 minutes late for work anymore!!! This means I actually have to be getting to bed at a decent time. So like, now.
I'm printing this out and sticking it on the fridge, to remind me. O___o I need all the help I can get these days.
Happy New Year, everyone! ^__^ *wags*
