My goals for 2017, in no particular order:

- Be more positive and grateful for what I have in my life, even when I'm sad for some reason (or no reason).
- Go to the gym (or do commensurate physical activity like hike, etc.) 3 times a week.
- Write at least 750 words a day.
- Write on original work 4 days a week. (3 days are allowed to be fanfic. Or more if I also write at least 750 words on one of the original works.)
- Hit my freelance income goal for the year (it's low, but it's my first full year full-time).
- Post to my blog at least once a month.
- Spend less time looking at social media (Tumblr, Twitter, FB) and more time doing useful things like practicing guitar, working on my calligraphy, drawing, writing, etc.
- Practice the guitar at least 5 days a week.
- Write down all the books I read in the year.

That last one is important to me because I get almost all my books out of the library, now, especially fiction... and I already have a tendency to forget most of what I read a few weeks after I've finished it. I think this is a tendency honed as an English major in college--it was only beneficial for me to remember the millions of books that I read for English, history, anthropology, classics, and assorted other similar classes for 10 weeks at the absolute most, and I read so damned many that it benefited me if my brain just dumped the info after being tested on them. ...Or it could just be that I'm a quick but not a very deep reader. Pick your poison. I can read a lot of books... but if you ask me the last ten books I read I'll probably get through three or four tops before going "Uhh.... and a bunch of other stuff?"

Then again, if you ask me what the last three movies I saw were I'll probably only get to two before kind of blanking, so maybe I just have the memory of a goldfish. Who knows. I'm not especially concerned either way. It is what it is, and it means I can reread books (and rewatch movies) quite happily if I like them.
