Resolutions and Geekolutions
Quick, quick, I need to make some resolutions before the end of January. Yup, I’m procrastinating on making resolutions which I will eventually also find excuses to avoid. Nonono, this year will be different, because…because…because Captain Picard said “Make it so!”
Okay so I don’t really have any resolutions for this year, mainly because I already have lots of things I want to work on but haven’t quite found enough time or motivation. Thus I’m turning my resolution list into my ‘to do’ wish list for 2014.
It is my hope that sharing this list of ‘wishful intentions’ will help me stay motivated, which will hopefully lead to productivity. Its the ‘I already talked about it so I must do it’ self guilt trip that I am hoping will compensate for my high skill at procrastination. (I win at procrastination! Wee!)
Okay starting with the website:
-Finish reviewing all the games on my list . (Eeek!)
-Site redesign and update, hopefully with integrated tumblr.
-Make a video, try anyway. =P
-Podcast some fiction. This one is a long shot.
-Update a bit more. Vague, should be easy to follow.
-Try not to get burned out.
Stopping there, before I completely freak myself out. =)
Oh, but must add a few more personal ones:
-Read 100 books, or 30,000 pages, or both.
-Watch more anime. I have a whole list to get through.
Though I try to start each year with new goals, I found a little extra inspiration from Geek and Sundry this year. They came out with a video last month talking about all of their ‘Geekolutions’, which is just what you would expect it to be, geeky resolutions.
While most of my resolutions are pretty geeky already, one interesting suggestion popped up, the 10×10 challenge on boardgamegeek.com. The idea is to pick ten board games and play each of them ten times. That is a huge commitment, but one I am sorely tempted to try. Mostly because I have this huge problem with buying new boardgames, despite having an overwhelming amount of games to play. Attempting this challenge might just help curb my spending on boardgames affliction. But then which boardgames do I pick, and who would play the same ten boardgames with me over and over again? Am going to have to think about this one for a while, maybe a whole year. =P
Happy New Year Everyone. (Look I procrastinated so long that I managed to post in between Gregorian New Year and Chinese New Year. Covering all my bases.)
