Some Goals For The New Year

I'm not one for making new year resolutions, but there are some things that I have to do.

Getting healthy is always on people's list. I'm not going on a diet and exercise binge, it never seems to work. Going with small goals. Eating more fruits and vegetables instead of just meat seems like a good start. Drinking more water might be a good idea. Exercise, meh, that it is going to have to built up to.

Taking care of projects on the home front all by myself unless I'm in over my head. I've always counted too much on other people to help me with that stuff and it's time for a change. We have a ninety year old house, there is a lot of work to be done and it'd make for a great hobby.

Doing more stuff as a family. Going to more conventions, hitting up water parks, go camping or (and I like this one) pack the family into the car on a Friday, pick a direction and just drive and not come home until Sunday night. Take more pictures and record more videos of the family, not just of the kids.

Blog at least once a week. Doesn't have to be about comics, games or whatever geek thing has me hyped up. Just write once a week and get it posted. This one counts.

Learn how to use Audacity, get the equipment and start a podcast. Been holding back on this one big time. I'm intimidated by software like Audacity and even when I started a twitch channel for live streaming I felt uncomfortable and out of my element. I also hate the sound of my voice. I really want to see this one through.

Less World of Warcraft. Gasp. Yes. I made the mistake of doing the /played. I look at all of that played and can't help but think how much of that is wasted time. There is a good portion that wasn't wasted time. WoW has become something more than just a game. It's how work stuff out in my head. Nothing helps clearing the mind and working stuff out like killing Horde scum and I do have good friends that I'm thankful for. However, I'm contemplating concentrating one one character and once character only from here on out.

I think that's it for now. There are some other things I'd like to do but they can wait. The stuff above has to come first.
