I'm watching you. Yes, you.

I’m Not

I was just sitting at lunch today, thinking about things, and it came across my mind that I’m not very good at most things I try to do. Most hobbies, or things I like to do, when you become very good at them, become titles. I guess that’s why they’re still hobbies, and not careers.

I’m not a Novelist, but I can write, edit, and I’m a pretty decent blogger. I’m not an Artist, but I can draw a fairly nice anime figure, if you don’t stare too hard, and I liked one of my doodles so much I’m planning on turning into a tattoo. I’m no Photographer, but I enjoy taking pictures, and I know how to make myself and other looks pretty decent in photographs. I’m not a Podcaster, but I used to be, and I’m a fairly decent voice actress. I’m no Videographer, but I like recording short videos and I have no qualms about livestreaming myself eating ramen with chopsticks at my computer. I’m not a Therapist, but I will let you tell me your problems ’till you’re blue in the face, and I will help you try and find solutions if you want me to.

I’m not the best at what I do, but I think I do just fine.


2010 Resolutions

Normally, I don’t do resolutions. Why? Few reasons. I understand that most resolutions are too broad to be worthwhile to even mutter. I forget that I made the blasted things two months afterward. I’ve never really felt accountable if I didn’t achieve my resolution. I’ve never felt it was necessary.

This year I don’t have any resolutions, either. I have goals. But everyone should have goals. Mine are small, relatively easily attainable goals. My first goal is to get through a yoga class & an exercise class (called Body Shape) without coming out of a pose prematurely or skipping reps. Once I can do those two things successfully, I’m going to step it up a bit more, possibly by adding a new class or an additional day of the same class(es). Starting in the spring, I’m hoping to buy a bike and possibly ride to classes, or just around the neighborhood.

Small goals, not resolutions. Baby steps.
