I guess it's time for New Year's resolutions (even though in past years I resolved to not make any more resolutions!), and I really only have one, though it's kind of broad. This year I want to experience more creativity, which basically means I want to get out of the house more! I've had periods in my life where my schedule was always full of music events, plays, museum exhibits, and all kinds of other things, but last year I really only made it to the opera. So, this year I'm going to change that - I'm going to go to the symphony again, I'm going to see more movies in the theater (rather than waiting for the DVD!), I'm going to try more restaurants, I'm going to start reading poetry again (along with my manga, of course), and get out for more local music, too. Being more creative myself is also part of the deal, so I want to try to make some short video projects this year, for purely expressive reasons.
I guess there are a few other things I want to accomplish, though they really aren't resolutions. I definitely have to stop being lazy about furniture shopping, since I'm tired of getting a sore butt in my old rocking chair, and if I don't get more shelves soon, I will suffocate in books and Disney knick-knacks. Of course, I also want to seriously concentrate on my Japanese studies - I think I need some structure, so it's probably time to use my old class textbook as a guide. And I definitely want to stay healthy and in the same weight range. I'm always excited at the beginning of the year - I hope I can look back on this post in 2007 and say "I did it!"
