Happy New Year!
I am so glad that 2014 is behind me. It was such a rollercoaster and if it had a face then I would have basically mauled it. Needless to say I want 2015 to be much better. I don’t do resolutions for my personal life, or nothing that truly impacts the way I feel about myself. I find that having goals for myself tends to put a damper on how I feel, especially when I can’t complete them. So i keep it simple.
- Learn Something New – I’ve done this two years in a row and it’s a lot of fun. It’s also open enough that as long as it falls into a “skill” category it works. In 2013 I learned how to knit. In 2014 I learned how to skateboard and make crafts from old books. So this year I’m pretty excited to see what else I pick up.
- Be Social – This one is purposefully vague as well. I have social anxiety so this is a tough one, but one that as long as I try I will succeed at. I want to make new friends and be able to enjoy having conversations with people.
- Get Back into Blogging – Blogging has been sort of a chore lately…which most people can probably tell because if my posts go up they are not as frequent or later in the day. So I’m hoping to get back to the point of having things scheduled well ahead of time.
- Read more LGBT books
- Read more Indie Books – I read a lot of these already, but I want to read more! Most of the books I own are indies, so I need to make more time for them.
Challenges for the New Year
2015 LGBT Challenge
I’m going to try and read 3 to 10 LGBT books in any genre this year.
If anyone knows of a challenge for UtopYA goers let me know! I want to read a lot of books from authors going to the 2015 UtopYA convention, and would love to have a group to chat with.
