I' ve made a little board with my personal resolutions for 2011.
I'm usually not a Girlish girl that makes resolutions and i don't read the horoscope (except when i'm inlove with someone, i know, i0m weird), but since now i live with Moreno, i think we need to write down a few goals to keep in mind, so that we can be a bit more organised and more focused on what we want.
I' ve written the board in japanese, because i want to enforce the concept i should think of everything in japanese, so it's easier to learn it well and practice.
I know Moreno is the typical rude boy that doesn't give a shit about resolutions or horoscopes, so i know he won't mind not being able to read the board.
Anyways, my new year's resolutions are:
1)STUDY EVERY DAY
(don't laugh, please. I know it sounds ridiculous,and maybe it is, but i want at least try! The thing is not to really study a lot every single day, but to study more than i've done until now.
2)DO MORE MOVEMENT
I mean, more than zero, which is the amount of movement I'm doing now. Running when the weather permits it, otherwise yoga and exercising at home. [a proposito], I'm going to take a dance mat and other fun games of ps2 and eyetoy. Who said that exercise has to be boring?
3)MONEY: EARN AT LEAST 300€ PER MONTH
again, it's more than what I've done in 2010! Earning more with a saltuary, part-time job would be unrealistic...
4)BOOKS: READ MORE
and also, finish the translation of The Book. I want to go back to the days i used to read a lot, and people gave me books as presents when they didn't know what to buy me. Now they buy me.. purses. And cups. Yeah.
5)PERSONAL GOALS: VOLUNTEER
with the red cross, or animal protection, apply for the civil service, donate blood, etc.
6)MY PASSIONS: be artsy again
maybe i'll take a watercolour course with my friend, or maybe i'll just start painting home by myself, and i'll start also working for the blog. Anyways, i'm planning to be back to painting!
Another creative thing i',ll do will be knitting, hopefully with the help of moreno's mom!
7)GREEN THUMB: gardening, and eat our own veggies. Or at least this year i don't want to kill my plants anymore!
8)HOME: BUY SOME FUCKING FURNITURE AND A FUCKING BED
I mean, a REAL one, super-size bed. And make room for my books and create a place to study in peace! No kittens nor humans allowed.
9)PERSONAL GOALS: STOP WASTING TIME
that is toi say: reduce the online time, and the lazy time doing nothing or daydreaming.
Transform that time in gstudyh time, gmeh time, gcreativeh time, doing healthy activities that make me happy. Be it alone, or with company.
10)BOYCOTT: STOP BUYING USELESS TOXIC COSMETICS TESTED ON ANIMALSand buy more natural, sustainable stuff!
11)BE LESS SHY!
Have the courage of my feelings, express what i really think, especially with the people i like. It's the most difficult, that's why it's the last one. And also, be able to take care of my partners, and nurture our relationships with all the love and care i'm capable of, without restraining myself and never let my fears push me away from them.
Please notice that i haven't added "blog more regularly" or "more frequently"h among them, because right now i really don't have the time to blog regularly, i don't have enough partners nor enough experience in poly relationships to be a [punto di riferimento] to anyone and i sometimes just want to take my time from the internet and be alone. In fact, this year should be the ginternet detoxh year, so don't expect too much from me. I alredy consider the amount of time i'll spend working for blog illustrations as a bonus time i'm spending on the blog, and with Tom writing we can [dividerci il lavoro].
Consider that this is a blog i write for my own [piacere], since there's no form of advertising on it, and i don't gain any money from it. When you have a [passatempo], you can still like it and do it well only if it's not a job, with no regular schedules and not being forced to update your work every single day/week.
So to be able to continue liking this blog, i must not take it too seriously!
It's a thing i do for me and for the few that reads, not for a living.
Whenever something relevant happens in my life, i'll find the time and the right words to write about it, and that's it. That's the only guarantee you can have.
Hope it's enought for making this blog worth reading and I hope it's enough to make it useful for someone.
