New Year Projects

A while back, my plan to write at least one post a week got away from me. It would be easy to say that this was because I got engaged to my longtime girlfriend (she and I write together), and because of the holidays, so I'll just stick with that. It certainly had nothing to do with my tendency to procrastinate about almost everything. Not a chance. I occasionally worry that procrastinating is holding me back from my full potential. I imagine myself being much more successful than I currently am, if only I could get myself together. As a matter of fact, it seems to run in the family. My sister, who writes the excellent blog Mind, Body & Scroll has written few posts about it. This actually is a bit of a relief for me. I'd say my sister is a rather successful person, even if she loves to procrastinate as much as I do. This gives me hope.

However, just hoping won't help me accomplish anything, so in the spirit of the New Year, and even though I despise New Year's resolutions, I'm getting back on the horse and making this the first week back posting every week. We'll just say the lapse until now was a sabbatical.

Because I haven't accomplished much recently (aside from confirming that I'm quite addicted to Super Meat Boy), I'm going to list projects that I have half finished, as well as projects I'd like work on, along with a bit of a description. I'm sort of hoping that publicly listing them will help shame me into finishing them. Here goes: Phew, ok, so there are a couple of things I'd like to work on. I didn't realize quite how many there were on the list until I finished writing it. Now I really should never be without something to do, and if I manage to keep myself busy, something to write about. Let's see what I can accomplish.
