Here is a list of things I have resolved to do better in 2015. Wish me luck.
Invest in better pens
I like to write things on paper. Paper smells good, I like the way my hand feels moving across the page, I like how my handwriting unfurls while I think. And I particularly like to write with a uni-ball® Vision Needle™ Rollerball Pen. Anyway, this is not a crazy expensive pen. Why do I own anything else? I hereby refuse to purchase any other pen. Up yours, inferior pens.
Carry less crap.
They make enormous purses now, which is convenient if you need to transport a giant canned ham or a human head. But do I need a mirrorless camera, a book, a notepad, and three kinds of lip balm to grab a cup of coffee? I need to cut back on the stuff I am carrying and stop being a pack horse for Mark and Oliver (who are old enough to carry their own crap around).
Of course that may mean I will need to upgrade to a new MEC shoulder bag.
Light more candles.
I’m writing this by candle light. You feel sexier just reading that. Candles in 2015.
Listen to More Music
I love music, but in the past I rarely made time for it. I can’t get much done if there’s music playing, because I stop what I’m doing to listen. So lately, I’ve just been listening to music and failing to get stuff done. Worth it. Here is to getting less done in 2015.
We were going to do this in 2013 but with Jordon quitting his job at The Lighthouse and trying to figure out what we wanted to do when we grew up, it got cancelled. In 2014 I wasn’t feeling that great so here we are, 2015 the year that Mark, Jordon, and I walk the back country trails to Grey Owl’s Cabin. It’s not quite the same as Wild but it will be fun.
I have some great friends that I do a horrible job of reaching out to. It’s been a long term failing of mine and it sucks but I am going to be a better friend in 2015 than I have before.
So what are you resolved to do better in 2015?
