New Year, Same Me

I’m not super big on New Year’s resolutions, because I’m of the opinion that any time is a good time to make changes, but since we’re here, I thought I’d start with a few ten resolutions I am planning for the new year.

In no particular order:

  1. Post more on Patreon.  I’m writing a lot, but nobody else sees it, so I’m going to start remedying that.
  2. Write more for myself.  That means if I want to write that Tabloidshipping fic, or that Jason/Cass twin story, I’m gonna do it, because it’s what I’m feeling.  What I write is not beholden to others.
  3. Progress, not perfection.  This is a big theme for this coming year.  Getting things done, getting things forward, that’s my goal.  It doesn’t need to be perfect to happen.
  4. Cleaning up my room.  This is one I’ve been meaning to do for years, but if I just work on it a bit at a time, I know it’ll get done.
  5. Stop giving a fuck.  I still worry about what people think of me, of hurting people I don’t care about, and that’s gonna be done.  It may not happen right off, but that’s a big goal.
  6. Get my shit together.  An overarching theme for the year, just trying to put myself into a schedule and place I want to be.
  7. Do me for me.  Be more authentically me without stifling myself.  That means being more queer, more masc, and more honest.
  8. Read what I own.  I’m planning on cutting down the books I buy and check out from the library, because I’m into the thousands of book ownership and the vast majority are unread, so I need to get on that.  I missed so many amazing books last year, and I want to get to those.
  9. Get out of debt.  Making a budget and a set limit of what I can spend and where I can spend it, even if that means cutting back on some amazing boxes, well, so be it.
  10. Get my license.  It’s been to long since I’ve been practicing and this has got to be the year I finally grid my lions and do it.

That’s the lot for me.  I’m not focusing on my health so much this year, because this past year I got it mostly under control.  Yes, I still have bad days both physically and mentally, but these goals are going to help with some of the worst mental health problems.

I’ll also be reviewing more of what I read this year, so wait to see that coming up.

Happy New Year, y’all.  Let’s make this one the best we can.
