Back in January I posted some resolutions. Here’s how things stand so far.
Read at least 100 books
I’m five books ahead of schedule!
Re-read the 41 official Discworld novels
I’m a little under halfway there.
Finish the TBR stack threatening to overtake the TV end table
Done, but that was only one of many TBR piles around the house.
Keep a good mix of fiction, nonfiction, and biography
I think I’m doing OK on this.
Write down or otherwise mark quotes as I find them
Make better use of the Library, including the hold system & inter-library loan
Check! However, I’m a bit distraught that I may not get to read At the Existentialist Cafe until August [I’m third in the queue].
Incur no library fines
So far so good, as long as I return my books today as they’re (a) due and (b) can’t be renewed again.
Keep a consistent blogging schedule
Post-a-Day so far!
Write more fun-for-me posts, including poetry and short fiction
Take time to read and comment on others’ blogs
Does the thought count?
Well, I’m trying.
Write a short review to be posted on Amazon & Goodreads for each book I read
Goodreads – yes
Amazon – no
Physically write something of importance or significance with pen and ink (or pencil . . . you get the idea).
It’s better than last year 🙂
FINISH THE BOOK
I mean, not yet.
Life in General
Strive to be a better, happier person – the kind of person people want to be around and not just tolerate
I’ve been told this is, indeed, true more than 50% of the time.
Be more understanding that not everyone will understand my introversion and the things that make me tick, and that that’s OK
This one isn’t going so hot.
Compliment more than Complain
Well, I’m not complaining as much, but I haven’t exactly replaced it with complimenting
Declutter [even – gasp – if it means letting a few books find new homes]
Quite the opposite, in fact.
How are you doing on your resolutions (if you made them)?
