My New Year's Non-Resolution Resolutions

I've never been one to make New Year's resolutions. Not that I don't believe in them, they're just not really for me. But over the past week I've realized there are some things I'd like to do this year, so I've come up with a list.  In no particular order...

  • take a digital photography course (I learn much better being shown something than reading a manual)
  • write more poetry and stories, and complete unfinished pieces
  • strengthen relationships and build new ones
  • be more curious about people (if that's even possible)
  • be more free with asking or answering the bolder questions
  • expand my knowledge and experiences in all areas of my life; socially, culturally, intellectually, sexually, philosophically, spiritually
  • work out more regularly
  • get back to building models (I've been doing this as a hobby since I was nine)
  • get more exposure to people of different cultures and lifestyles
  • push myself to finish my book and give the printer a call
  • post more often
  • comment more often on other blogs, make an attempt to respond to all comments on mine (I feel really guilty when I don't!!)
  • write more erotica and humour
  • write posts which are more revealing, personal and easier to relate to
  • make this blog more interactive, involve my readers more
  • write more hand-written letters
  • keep up with personal studies of Psychology, Human Sexuality and Sociology

From day one I've written this blog with my readers in mind, it's as much about you as it is me. If there's anything you'd like me to write about, regardless of subject matter please let me know. I may not take every suggestion but I'll consider them all.


  1. A beautiful list of resolutions. Some of them I wish I had made....who knows maybe I'll end up fulfilling some from your list.

    Happy New Year.

  2. Hi there! Thanks for dropping my blog! You have great blogs and I just can't resist the urge to follow them!
    Nice resolutions! I hope you can accomplish all or at least most of them ;)

  3. Sounds like 2011 will be a great year of growth and self exploration for you! Those are the best kind :)

  4. Those are some great resolutions - I should make some too, but only if I can promise myself to maintain them. I just know you will make all of them a reality, unlike me. I think a lot of your resolutions would be useful for me as well, so I just might steal some ;)

  5. I'd love to take acting lessons...! Of course now that I have zero time for anything I feel like trying new things ;-/

  6. i wish to learn spanish guitar and take lessons in photography.these 2 wishes have been hanging there since 3 years now.
    i dont have any specific suggestions regarding your writing here.
    all i can say keep the passion in all your writings, whatever the subject is.this is what really matters.and afterall when i read your comments, it is not the subject rathern than the writer i am following.
    so, just keep on being that warm person :)

  7. Great set of resolutions.Give the printer a call.Go on!ring ring!
