Happy New Year. Started this year with a bang. Leave me alone til next year.

Looking back, I realized how amazing 2010 was for me. I ended it celebrating it to two people I met that year that have grown close to me. I reconnected with my old friends, and finally got to hang out with them very often as I always wanted during high school. I made lots of new friends. Too much I think. And I also learned a lot more about myself and who I need to be in order to get the things I want. Which comes my next topic: Resolutions

Every year, people tend to typically make somewhat unrealistic resolutions that last for like maybe a month (Gym prices will be pretty jacked up for a while, be careful!), and by the end of the year we make that same resolutions. I succeeded at the one I made for last year (get back old friends), so now it’s time for some new ones.

1. Be more extroverted this year than last. So in order words say a word or two in a public setting.

2. Learn CS5. Prefferably have someone teach me the ropes of most of it, because video tutorials and books are a bit nerve wracking. PLEASE SOMEONE FOR THE LOVE OF CTHULU TEACH ME THIS!

3. Finish one of my comic ideas. As well as find an illustrator to draw it, we will save “Getting published” for next year maybe.

4. Get this blog up and running. When I say that I mean, write more posts, get more readers, find new things to talk about. Make this blog look sharp, for lack of a better word. I’m out of school, I feel this is like my only way of not being a slave to the machine of working.

5. Go to a state I’ve never been to/ Road trip. I’m trying to aim for making taking a train to Chicago one day and getting a hotel for the weekend to see Best Church of God as well as some other troupes. Yes, I am that determined to see their shows.

Do you guys have any specific ones?
