new year, new goals

I’ve never really been one for New Year’s resolutions, but did want to bang out some things I’m hoping to accomplish this year. I want the goals to be concrete and measurable (not “be a better person,” etc.) so I can see how I’ve done by the time January 2013 arrives.

  1. read (at least) 1 book a month (12 in 2012)
  2. organize my iTunes library
  3. travel somewhere NEW
  4. do a major closet (this includes shoes, bags) purge and consign/sell/donate
  5. meticulously keep track of every new thing I buy (I tried to start this last year and fizzled out) and evaluate month by month
  6. learn more about finances/investing
  7. no more buying cosmetics, skin care until I use up what I have – try to use up 2 products/month, throw out what needs to be thrown out
  8. finally finish making abandoned photo books (Paris 2009, Paris/Stockholm 2010)
  9. learn how to use my camera
  10. start on decorating the place – framed photos, prints, paint, etc.
  11. be healthier – drink more water, eat healthier (meatless Mondays?), exercise more often (try to do the c25k program, walk at least 3x/week)
  12. try to cook more Korean food – try 1 new recipe a month?
  13. be a better person…
