too many words by laura lemay

2005 new year's resolutions


  • Draw more. I’ve always been a word-person rather than a pictures-person. But I’ve done some scribbling in the past and I want to do more. It uses dusty cobwebby parts of my head that don’t otherwise get used. I don’t particularly have a great desire to create great art, but being able to be a not-horrible cartoonist might be nice.
  • I’ve had this online technical tutorial e-book idea floating around in my head for ages. I should do the darn thing, or just shut the hell up and keep doing tech writing contracts until I die.
  • Lose those last seven pounds. It wouldn’t be new year’s resolutions without some body-image related resolution, would it.
  • Do a new site design. Integrate this blog with my main site and my work site. Integrate my bookmarks and flickr photos and my amazon wishlist (which is really my reading to-do list). More RSS. More Web services. More geekery. Fix the @#*&#(@*& CSS.
  • Take more pictures to populate flickr with.
  • More water, less coffee, less alcohol, less chocolate, sob.
  • Ruminate less, blog more.
  • Continue being, for the most part, happy.
