oh, new years.

so, all over the web i’ve seen people reflecting on the previous year & expressing their hopes for the next. i thought it was actually a very good idea.

2009 wasn’t a fantastic year for me. there were some very good things, but the bad things far outweighed it. i had the grandest of ideas & plans, but ended up spending most of the year running in the same place, not really achieving anything. & of course i wasn’t in school or anything before september, which was a whole world of bad. i did learn a lot in the last year though, mostly things i shouldn’t do. that’s how i know 2010 will be amazing.


get back in shape &, more importantly, stay that way
get my own domain & website (as much as i love wordpress, it is pretty limited)
make 70+ new things to sell
have at least one (semi-)professional photoshoot for my clothing
invest more in my little clothing business & turn it into a real, registered one
write 364000+ words of fiction
write 52+ blog posts, excluding things i’ve made, tilt & ff
read 78+ books
get back into art & make 20+ drawings/paintings/mixed media things
learn a new craft
completely master photoshop
get a driver’s license
learn to save & put 600 euros i earned myself in my savings account
find another way to earn money
learn to speed-read

those aren’t all of my goals for next year, just all i feel comfortable posting on the internet. & i will probably add more/tweak some throughout the rest of the year. have you noticed how very measurable all of them are? yes, even the first; when my old pants comfortably fit me again & i can run up our stairs without gasping for air & nearly dropping dead on a neighbor’s doorstep (i live on the third floor), i’ve reached that goal. goals are a lot more real & reachable if they’re measurable.

aside from those goals i would also like to get rid of old, bad habits, like procrastinating & avoiding things, & develop new habits, like generally being organized & doing promotion work daily.

ooooooooh, i’m so excited for the new year! & for this one to end. now the only way to go is up.
a very happy new year to all of you! thank you so much for still reading my blog! i love you! good luck with your own goals! & if/when you get thwarted in the reaching of those goals, stick to them anyway. i’ll do the same.

  1. Wow, now that is some SERIOUS ambition! Amazing!

    Happy New Year Maraluce, and may 2010 bring you ALL of these goals and many more! 🙂
