Holy shit, I suck at New Year’s resolutions. Anyway, here’s my 2013 list.

  • Lose 20 lbs by July/SDCC
  • Go to SDCC
  • Exercise at least 4 times a week, 3 during the week and once on the weekend
  • Take Mimi for walks at least 4 times a week
  • Get back into bentos, make at least 3 times a week
  • Work on YouTube channel for AIB
  • Get EnderWiggin.net to at least 10,000 fans by June
  • Bake all my bread myself unless it’s for demo work
  • Floss every day, wear night guard every night
  • Read at least 40 books
  • Build up Review Addicts to at least 1,000 fans
  • Write at least 100 reviews for Review Addicts
  • Write at least 5 blog posts a week

  • Take better care of myself
  • Start button-making shop/store

A lot of these goals are to help me get around to eventually being able to make a living off blogging. On an individual resolution basis though, hopefully this year I’m a bit more successful. =
