"Resolution #1: In 2011, I intend to read at least one book in each of the ten main classes of the Dewey Decimal Classification system."
I had pretty much kept this goal by the end of June--except for reading anything in the 400s. The part of me that was a linguistics major in college seems to be rebelling at the thought of reading anything language-related (it's too much like woooooork!), which is silly since I was a ling major because I enjoyed learning about language to begin with. But there we are: I still haven't read anything in the 400s class, and right now I'm very much in fiction mode and not sure when I'll get back to nonfic. We'll see.
"Resolution #2: Take advantage of the fact that I live near The Land of the Free Museums and go to museums at least four times in 2011."
It's nearly October and I haven't been to any museums yet this year. Silly me. Assuming Metro rates don't go up again and I don't have more energy-sapping health issues than usual, I should be able to wander round four museums in the next three months, right?
"Resolution #3: Play with computer graphics more than I did in 2010."
This was an easy resolution to keep, though I haven't produced anything worth showing to anyone else yet.
I'm thinking that if I make any resolutions for 2012, one should have something to do with reading fiction; maybe reading four SF novels by different authors, four mystery novels, and four works of "literary" fiction--something like that. Twelve novels in a year isn't exactly difficult--I've read more than that this year even though my focus was on nonfiction.
In the meantime, I'm hoping to post more to LJ/Dw today. It's clearly time for more caffeine.
