Tis the season for New Year's Resolutions. I'm sure the blogosphere will have plenty of posts about people's resolutions, but mine actually relates to the blog, hence this post.
I try to keep resolutions easy and attainable, and with the exception of 2009, I keep them. I never make weight loss a goal, because a) I know I probably won't keep it and b) I believe lifestyle changes are more important than quick fix, temporary diets.
My goal for 2010 has two parts. First, I will update my blog once a week. Given the amount of time I spend on facebook, I think I can find time weekly to update! Secondly, I will either date one new guy or go to one singles event every month. Honestly, these really are just continuations of things I started in 2009 anyway, but again, I like to make my goals attainable. Of course, if I catch a boyfriend by the end of the year, goal 2 will become null and void. I didn't make that my resolution because that's a bit too lofty for me, I think. It'll make my dating escapades less fun and add more pressure to every date, i.e. "I must make him fall madly in love with me in this one hour date! I only have 10 months to find love!"
After a bit of a dry spell in December, I started talking to a guy on okcupid. We'll see how that goes. Perhaps he'll be my January date. If not, I recently joined some Singles meetup groups, so we'll see if any of those groups plan something for the coming month. I must stay active and keep meeting new people. I mustn't get discouraged! Even if I don't find a man by 2011, this'll all improve my conversational skills and bring me wisdom about dating.
