New Year's Resolutions

So, usually, I don't make New Year's Resolutions. This is usually due to the fact that I feel somewhat shallow and cliched about stating that I want to lose weight or some such nonsense as that. But this year, I'm going to make some... and post them publicly for accountability.

1. Find myself
This isn't absolute. I don't have to have my whole life figured out. But I need to find a core. I need to dig myself out of this fluctuating sadness. I need to make changes. Make myself into a person that I can admire. Quit being so self-destructive.

2. Learn to play the guitar
Much less weighty and still yet something I have always wanted to do. I'm gonna be sexy as shit.

Lesser (but still important) resolutions:

1. 365 project
I have already started. I will take at least one photo a day to be compiled into some sort of visual depiction of my year. I'm pretty excited and I hope I don't forget to take a shot every day.

2. Nesting
I want to work on my house. I've been living with hand-me-down furniture for many, many years and I need things around me that illustrate my personal sense of style. I think this means I may create my own wall art. I have been seeing some fun/easy DIY art projects on Pinterest that I considering.

So for the moment I am excited about my projects. Some are, understandably, going to be much harder than others. But I'm all over it. Happy New Year.
