Writer's Block: Happy New Year!

What is your New Year’s Resolution?

My New Year’s Resolution is not to make any New Year’s Resolutions because when I have in the past, I have always "failed" and I find that counter-productive and depressing. Instead I have jotted down (on my iPad, naturally) a small list of things I would like to try to do; more goals or things to aim for than resolutions.

  1. DayLogging food, meds, sleep, symptoms, etc. Maybe better journaling of what I do each day as well. iPad journaling app?

  2. Wear my non-short-work glasses more, e.g. Walking around the house. Will need a way to carry my glasses case at all times. Handbag or similar or is that too complex for in the house?

  3. Finish Neil's sweater and my other UFOs.

So far for #1 I have a spreadsheet in Numbers on the iPad (that I learned today how to transfer to and from Excel/Numbers on the iMac) and so far I have been keeping it updated. I have also started adding actual times to my @natdaylog tweets because I can make those from the bed and using my phone whereas I do not have Numbers and a central/cloud spreadsheet but I can update the spreadsheet later based on @natdaylog. This is all working quite well so far. I did toy with making LJ posts using the template that I used in my 750words posts for Daylogging Metadata but that might be too much spam for you all to read. Agreed it would be a central repository. I would rather not have to post this data in too many places, though, otherwise it will all get out of sync. I do need to work out how to save my Numbers spreadsheet to my Dropbox because that would be a great way to synchronise it.

The question I answered here, in case they change it (which they have done before), was, "What is your New Year’s Resolution?"
