2012: the resolutions

You say you want a revolution resolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the our world....

For some reason, whenever I think of new years resolutions, I always think of this song. I guess its not altogether off topic; after all, new years resolutions are supposed to be personal revolution, right?

I started writing this post yesterday, but due to the last-minute insanity preparing for our new years party (which went amazingly well, by the way), I was unable to devote the time to finishing it. After a sleeping marathon today, I'm feeling clear headed & ready to face the year, as well as this post.

In previous years, I've made highly detailed resolutions that I was unable to stick to. I know that "they" say to make detailed resolutions so that you have less wiggle room in interpretation later, but this year I don't want to do super specific resolutions. I'm turning 30 this year. I'm a real adult, or so "they" say. And like everything else in life, I'm putting my foot down. I'm doing this my way, "they" be damned!

On that note, here's a list of the things I want to do in 2012:
  1. Shoot at least 5 weddings & continue to grow my photography business. Learn to market myself.
  2. Run more & swim more (I'm thinking of starting w/ once per week of each). 
  3. Continue to be 90% + vegan, & look to become more so. 
  4. Really start to take care of myself on a more consistent basis. 
  5. Take photos every day. Work work work hard, and play hard, with the camera. No laziness!
  6. No excuses.
  7. Be true to my heart. Finish what I start. Plan ahead & don't deviate. 
  8. Follow my to-do list & calendar more, and accomplish more in 2012 than in 2011.
  9. Don't panic, because everything will be alright, and panic only decreases productivity.
  10. Figure out what I'm going to do with/at my job.
  11. Learn to sew. 
  12. Read at least 10 books. 
  13. Grow the readership of this blog & improve content. 
  14. Figure out what the "next steps" are in my life (easier said than done, but necessary).
Happy new year, everyone! What are some of your resolutions?
