I have three, I think.
1) Be able to run a 5k in 18 minutes. I’ve seen that time on a couple of running sites. It’s a really good time, but it’s attainable too. At the moment, I can run 5k in about 30 minutes, so it will take some work. But that’s what the entire year is for.
2) Cosplay. Every year, I say that I want to dress up and go to Supanova (our Aussie version of Comic Con) and every year, I don’t. I actually didn’t even go to it last year, so that’s my excuse. I would LOVE to cosplay as Cersei Lannister from Game of Thrones, but considering that would involve making my own costume, I think we’ll work up to her.
I just really feel like I could pull off that facial expression.
3) I’ve seen this floating around the internet for the last few years and this year, Imma gonna do it. You take a jar, and every time something good happens, you write it down and put it in the jar. Then at the end of the year, you have a record of a GOOD year. I have even prepped my jar.
I taped a Neil Gaiman quote to the outside. “May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself”
And I apply that quote to all of you too. If there’s anyone left that still pops by from time to time.
NB: I am just casually not saying anything about the fact that I didn’t blog for like three months. But… if you do still read this blog, maybe you could fill me in on what you’ve been up to?
