As all of you already know, I am not the most productive person. I am so unproductive that one of my goals is to watch more TV. Yes, I am so unproductive that I have to make Watching TV a goal in order for me to actually do it.
I usually skip making New Year’s resolutions because I know I’m not going to complete them, or even attempt to do them, so what’s the point? Well, in an effort to be slightly more Asian, last year, I decided to set some. . Well, not surprisingly, it didn’t go so well.
Despite having little success, I decided to have the same exact goals. Partly, because I still have an interest in completing them. Partly, because I wanted to see if there’s any chance of me actually doing them. Well, it’s almost the middle of the year, and I wanted to give a brief update. Spoilers: There was very little crying.
Read at least 30 books
Believe it or not, I have read 12 books, and it’s only June. Usually at this point of the year, I would stop reading, unintentionally, of course. Well, not this year.
I have since reduced the goal from 30 to 24 because I feel that would be more feasible and realistic for me. But honestly, I’m just happy I read more than I did last year. I am a man of very low expectations, I know.
I’ve also been updating my GoodReads account. Yes, I have a GoodReads account.
The good thing is I am no longer crying in front of piles and piles unfinished books. I’m just crying over everything else.
Be consistently watching at least one TV show or movie at a time.
I still find it difficult to watch something for a long period of time, but I’ve been making progress with a few shows and movies. Very slow progress, but it’s progress. The good thing is I have a number of shows and movies that I want to watch, which was a problem before. Actually finding something to watch. That’s not an issues anymore. The problem now is to actually watch them, heh.
Write at least one short story
I’ve been trying to get started, but my motivation and inspiration to write is pretty low right now. I know I will eventually write but at this point, it may be on my deathbed, heh.
Complete the outline of my novel
Now, I have done a little work on the outline this year, but again motivation and inspiration is low. There is hope for something resembling ovel outline at the end of the year though.
Spend more time on other hobbies
I’ve done a lot of reorganization of my bookshelf and my other display areas. I’ve also been working on my action figure collection. I haven’t done much else, but obviously I have been wanting to do something crafty, especially because I have so many craft supplies. I’m not trying to start an art supply collection. Ugh.
