Other plans/resolutions for the coming year: Spend two hours a week on project work for my (our, really; Julie's and my) part of the house, the upstairs, particularly the office. I have several boxes of underground comics to sell, and probably lots of books I could part with.
I want to track my personal finances and the household expenses better.
And read more. I look longingly at all the books double stacked and laid atop each other and even on the floor in front of my to-be-read bookcase (it's a small bookcase, at least). And sometimes I think about all the books I just shelved in with the rest without actually having read. Or the books on topics I'm no longer interested in (paper marbling is the exemplar of that; I never did any actual marbling, but I sure was fascinated in books on the subject. Hah! But can I part with the books? No.)
Actually, in that case, it's more like, I have this set of specialized books that possibly someone might be happy to have. The same applies to all the books I have on polyamory and postmodern sexuality. Or the origins of Christianity. Or physical theatre and circus. Maybe someday I'll be interested in these subjects again.
Anyway, I should at least go through the books and make individual decisions.
This is becoming quite a list, and is why I'm leary of new year's resolutions:
- two hours/week household project with Jane
- two hours/week office and upstairs projects (includes selling comics and sorting through books)
- read more
- track personal money better
- track household expenses better
Note there's no fun stuff there, like "love Julie more every day" or "play with the rats more" or "spend more time with Riley". I think I don't want those to become goals that then become nags or obligations. (Although I do want to do the latter two, and I do the first as a matter of course. ;>)
For photography, I have a lot of process goals, I guess you could call them:
- domain name and gallery website
- cell phone and business license
- portraiture (drag kings and pregnant punks particularly appeal to me, for some reason)
- more walkabouts in areas I wouldn't normally go to.
Making lists makes me impatient to get going on them. hah!
