2015 Resolutions: Something Old, Something New

I took stock of 2014's resolutions and came away with a solid C.

That means the 2015 resolutions will include some unfinished business from 2014 as well as some new entries.

So, here then is what's on tap for the new year:

  • Read 52 Books
  • Paint 52 Paintings
  • Watch 52 TED Talks
  • Exercise Every Day
  • Eat More Fruits and Vegetables
  • Write at Least Eight Art Reviews for Columbus Underground
  • Keep Up With My Social Medias
  • Record With Jim Diamond in Detroit (2014 carryover)
  • Take a Class in Painting or Drawing (2014 carryover)
  • Attend either OAL's Sunday Life Drawing Sessions or Wild Goose Creative's Wednesday Life Drawing Sessions.
  • Restore My 1977 Rally 200 Scooter (This will actually be outsourced to Jim at ScooterSource Inc, still I'd like to get it done.)
  • Rake Leaves (2014 Carryover. Seriously, I haven't raked leaves in two years. Hmm, maybe I don't need too...).
  • Paint the Living Room Dining Room, Stairwell and Hallway (2014 carryover)
  • Remodel the Kitchen (!!!!!)
  • Enroll in a Krav Maga Self-Defense Class (2014 carryover)
  • Listen to More (New) Music
  • Buy More Local Music
  • Take My Lovely Wife Out More
  • Take Some Sort of Vacation and Travel Somewhere! (Maybe not Europe (see Kitchen Remodel and Scooter Restoration above), but somewhere!)
  • Develop and Grow Professionally (Library-wise and Art-wise)
  • Submit Entries to at least Five Art Exhibitions
  • Arrange at least one Solo Show for 2015-2016
  • Acknowledge Birthdays and Anniversaries as Appropriate (You know, like adults do).
  • Send out Christmas Cards (You know, like adults do).
  • Listen More
  • Be More Patient
  • Be More Understanding
  • Ask More Questions
  • Ask Better Questions
  • Leave Things Better Than I Found Them
 Wish me luck!
