Resolution 2015

I don't think I've ever carried out a new year's resolution to fruition. Not that I really cared or really tried, but I guess it's just something that we as a society decide to do each year. So I figured I do it again, but maybe this time, I blog about it so I am held semi-publicly accountable to my resolutions.

When I first started this blog back in high school, I used to really enjoy posting. Therefore, my first new year's resolution will be to recapture that enjoyment of blogging.

When I publicly launched my newly redesigned website and blog, I felt a sense of pride and accomplishment. Something I created with my own two hands and plastered on a slice of the internet for anybody to critique or admire! Therefore, my second new year's resolution will be to create something on the internet.

I don't think blog posts count as "something on the internet" because words are just words. I can type trivial nonsense about my daily life as a blog post, but I don't think that'll help either of my two goals. While I don't really know what it is that I want to create, I know that through repeated efforts, I will be able to hone in on that one special something that will be my passion.
  1. Recapture the joy I used to feel when blogging.
  2. Create something on the internet.

On a side note, I really admire the blogs where a developer posts about his experiences daily as he is working on his project. The latest one I've stumbled across is Twelve Minutes. I aspire to have the same level of motivation and discipline that this developer has.
