New Years' Resolutions Answered

Well, with my New Years' resolutions plastered on the Makeblog it looks like I'll have to work twice as hard to make sure I keep them. Here they are:

Create more order. I find that once you have order, maintaining it isn't that hard. Apply this in practice to my garage.

Learn a new language. Probably will be Ruby; Spanish will come next if I can reach a comfortable level with Ruby.

Respond to or otherwise deal with every piece of email sent to me within 1 week or as soon as possible. Maintain an inbox that fits comfortably on one screen without scrolling.

Say "good morning" with a smile, and mean it -- start each of my personal interactions out on a positive note every day.

Try to have either a lower mass or lower volume of possessions by the end of the year. Get rid of things I don't use and probably will never use; don't buy anything that might fit this description.

my new years resolution is the same as it has been every year for the past however many there were "Do everything in moderation"...by the nature of the statement...that means i even have to moderate my moderation...so every once and a while i get to go balls out crazy

I guess I'll post mine then :P


Learn how to use a sewing machine properly... with emphasis on properly... For instance - I learned what a stitch plate is today. I did so by breaking a needle because the wrong one was in there (oops).

Other than that... continue to teach myself Swedish. I think, if I don't stop, I can become partially fluent at the very least.
