Now with that out of the way, I feel I should talk about my year thus far, and how it's been and all that. This is quite unlike what I normally do, since I normally dislike doing crap like this. This time however, I feel that I really should, as it's about time I took action to get rid of certain things in my life that's always been bugging me. Anyway, I guess 2006 has been an overall so-so year for me.
I have successfully survived in Boston for a year, done well in school (more or less anyway), finally finished a few tiny things such as my site and all that. Too bad I can't say the same for my holiday this year, being sick for most of it and feeling generally shitty all around.
But I think I need a resolution for 2007, which is again, something I normally never do but feel that I really oughta this time.
For 2007 I want to strive to:
1) Be less angry
This has always been an issue I've had for years, but it got real bad in 2006 in the fall. I let my stress get to me, and together with various things I've been bottling up in me, I have said a lot of pretty bad things to many people whom I've considered my friends for years. While I can't say I'm sorry for all the things I've said, it's also made me realise that I want to be less angry. It's been eating away at me long enough, it's time to get rid of it.
This means both doing more of the things that make me happy (i.e. drawing and writing more), but also means doing less of the things that do make me angry. Unfortunately, this means that I have decided to no longer do certain things that I've been doing for years that I used to enjoy. I won't get into any specifics right now, but it's a choice that's been difficult for me. I used to enjoy doing this particular activity, but it no longer brings me the joy that it used to and thus, it must stop.
2) Draw more
This is obvious. I want to finish MSG Man by 2007, as it's definitely picking up at last and it's nearing its climax. I want to give it a decent send off, so I can also get to real work on my next project. If you're one of the few that talks to me a lot about this stuff, then you already know what it is. If not, well, wait and see...
3) Improve lifestyle
This means actually getting a bit more exercise and various other things. I've been able to keep a bare minimum schedule of going to the gym once a week, but I think I definitely wanna step it up and maybe even put on a bit more muscle. I need some change, and some physical change would be nice.
And I think that's about it. Crappy holiday aside, 2006 has been okay I guess. Had lots of problems, but it's rarely anything I can't handle...yet. C'est la vie, and adieu 2006.
