We're officially two days into the new year, and I'm finally getting around to updating. It's been a while, huh. There's been a good reason for that - I've been ill for almost the entire month of December, and it's still going on. All the ugly details are on my plurk, but it's basically been my stomach disagreeing with me on a good number of counts. It's kind of amazing how many episodes of Phineas and Ferb you can get through when you're taking it easy on the couch for days on end. As it is, there are good days and bad days, so here's hoping things are on the up-and-up.

I know this is the time when we're supposed to look back at the past year and Reflect On Things, but I've never been the biggest fan of that, partially because my memory is ridiculously short and terrible and partially because I have a habit of basking in the good things as they happen but remembering the negative things well afterwards. There's been a pretty negative spin on my December for multiple reasons, and I don't want to go back and reminisce about the year through that lens, because while 2011 wasn't the nicest year, it didn't unequivocally suck either, and I'd rather not remember the entire year as though it did.

There was an image on plurk asking if we wanted to see the new year as a baby - easily influenced, helpless, and bossed around - or as a young warrior, eager to go forth, kick ass, and have awesome adventures. 2012 is a warrior year, guys. Let's make it one.

I actually did make resolutions for this year, though! They are as follows:

1. Finish my NaNo story, even if that doesn't happen until NaNo this year;
2. Go to at least one out of state convention (so not in CA);
3. Be more fiscally responsible (I don't have issues or anything, but I could stand to keep track of things a bit better).

So, [livejournal.com profile] iki_teru, [livejournal.com profile] synchroshatter, I plan on running spell check and trying (and likely failing...) to do a once-over of my NaNo story soon. Are you still up for beta duties?

And finally, given recent happenings that have happened at LiveJournal, I am now officially posting from Dreamwidth. I'll still cross-post entries to my LJ and I will still check my LJ flist, but I've officially made the jump. Friend me over here if you'd like. :Db (Though I do need a new mood theme for DW - anybody have any good ones?)
FOR REALS:
1) Keep a list of all the books I read this year. I ganked the idea from [profile] ghettopeach, and frankly, it's a good one. :D
2) Get the stuff on my ToDo list done in a timely manner. Like, give myself a due date and stick to it.
3) While we're on that subject, finish all that stuff that's still on last week's/month's/year's ToDo list. (This includes finishing the Organization coat for the con this month (AAAAAAAARGH), finishing my Paixao application, and...I don't even remember. Gah.)
4) Write something. Or finish writing something. Something that's not a drabble or two or eighty.
5) Lose weight. Evidently my system works like my dad's, where I have to eat frequently and small meals to lose weight. (Yeah, bass-ackwards, I know. It works.) It was only the Freshman Ten this time around, but it needs to go away now.

And five is a nice number (archetypal of man, haha), so I stop there.

FOR LAWLS:
In 2007, yamikonumber7 resolves to...

Spend less time on music.

Become a better saiyuki.
