My last blog post apparently cursed my new relationship, so here’s hoping that the curse of 2011 will hold out for a few more hours, and as I write this post, hopefully Murphy’s Law won’t decide to fuck me over in the next 10 hours or so.

In 2012, I resolve to work even harder than I did in 2011. To prove myself in my career. To get everything I can out of this amazing opportunity that I’ve been afforded. To grow as a person and as a professional in my career.

I resolve to use my spare time for the things I love: writing, reading, finding new music, sitting in coffee shops, cooking good meals. Less TV, more intelligent conversations. I will finish up and edit my book. I will start writing a new one. I will keep a journal.

I will do another mini triathlon, and I will train for it this time. Maybe I’ll even run a 5k. Either way, I will drag my ass to the gym that I pay for, on a semi-regular basis, and kick my own ass on the treadmill.

I resolve to see more of my neighbourhood. To actually take time to explore the beautiful area I live in. This will probably have to wait until the spring.

And keep taking chances. Sometimes it doesn’t work out, but when it does, it’s worth it.

Here’s to 2012.

    I will gladly come and train with you, because my ass needs some serious kicking too!! <3 :)

    Here’s to 2012, indeed. I will be right there alongside you (metaphorically), with each of these promises to yourself. After this year, it can only go up. Knock on wood.

    I love you.

    I’m sorry the relationship didn’t work out, but I’m glad to hear about the new apartment. Anyway, it’s a new year–plenty of time to find someone new.

    My boyfriend randomly messaged me last week when I was still at my parents’, asking if I was interested in training for the Honolulu marathon! I told him I’d like to run more–always a good New Year’s resolution–but NOT a marathon. Maybe, with lots and lots of training, I’d consider doing a half marathon. I don’t know how “mini” a mini triathlon is, but it sounds like a good goal :)

    Best wishes for the new year!
