2009 Resolutions

I’m aware that it’s January 9th. I just wanted to take my time to ensure I actually put some real thought into my resolutions. Why post them on these interwebs? Well, I think it might be a bit more likely that I’ll follow through with these if they are available to the public. So enough mindless banter (in no particular order):
In 2009 I want to…

  1. be sitting in my new apartment, in NYC (hopefully Brooklyn), with Tessa, celebrating our 1 year anniversary on (or before) March 14th.
  2. make a little money. Not a lot, but enough to not worry about it on a day to day basis like I currently need to.
  3. find a way to either make my current job more interesting/fun or to find a different job that fits those qualifications.
  4. make sure that whatever job I end up with actually has good benefits (to quote Homer: “mmmmmmm [health insurance and 401k]…”)
  5. start to pay back a chunk of my debts.
  6. pay off my credit card, and then do the “freeze it in a block of ice” idea. No, really.
  7. take dance lessons with Tessa.
  8. read (and enjoy) a few of those books on my reading list.
  9. actually take some kind of vacation, no matter how brief.
  10. finally kill this blog (and domain) after 5+ years. It doesn’t make a lot of sense any more.
  11. get down to Atlanta to see my brother at least once, but hopefully more than that.
  12. investigate the feasibility of grad school (informatics? information systems? pottery?).
  13. continue to be informed about the news and politics.
  14. scuba dive at least once (preferably some place with warm water).
  15. go camping in the Thousand Islands.
  16. make a point to take more pictures. Good pictures. Bad pictures. Just take pictures.
