I thought I'd look back at those pesky old resolutions I had for 2011 and see how well I did with them. Should be interesting.
#1 Be healthier. My goal was to lose 40# by my 40th birthday. FAIL!
#2 Write, write, write. Finish HUNTED LYON. WIN! Start on LYON'S ROAR. FAIL!
#3 Spend more time with my little girl. WIN! Never mind that some of that more time was 'round the clock care when she colicked, but it still counts. And I *did* take exactly two riding lessons to learn how to cue better.
#4 Continue my Master's program. FAIL!
#5 Be a better person. DRAW. There were times when I had a handle on it, and there were times when I failed spectacularly. Like when I told my big boss that he was screwing our students over by taking away a classroom for our free GED program. What I said: "I think our tuition-paying students are getting screwed by losing that classroom." What I should have said: "I'm concerned about how our tuition-paying students will react to the loss of a classroom, and subsequently, the decrease in the number of classes we can offer each mod." However, that was the biggest foot-meet-mouth moment I had with my boss this year, so maybe I should call it a win.
I don't feel too badly about my 2011 resolutions. Maybe when I look back at my 2012 "goals", I'll feel even better.
How's everyone else feel about their 2011 resolutions? Did you meet them or not? Was it a draw year, like mine?
