Currently Obsessed With: The Looking Back At 2014 Resolutions Edition

I know I can’t be the only one who is completely horrible at following through on New Years Resolutions, and given it’s the end of the year, I thought I’d take a look back and see how many of them I followed through on (and how well I followed through). Yesterday’s Top Ten Tuesday post made me want to revisit the ones I made back in January, so I went back to the Top Ten Tuesday post I did earlier in the year for the 2014 resolutions I made.

  1. Re-read more.  I don’t keep track of what I re-read, but I know I did some.  Maybe I need to keep track of what I re-read and when I re-read it so I have a better idea of how much I’m re-reading and what I’m re-reading.  Still, I did it to some unknown degree, so that’s good.
  2. Read what I have.  I actually did pretty good with it.  I bought quite a few books and read those, of course, but I did make more of an effort to read what I have.
  3. Listen to more audio books.  I read less audio books than I did last year.  I have so many that I need to listen to.  I really need to listen to more books.
  4. Feel less self-conscious about book-related things.  I’m pretty I’m more self-conscious about some of my reading habits.
  5. Stay on top of behind-the-scenes book blogging stuff.  I succeeded in varying degrees.  It comes and goes, but I’m also okay with not putting pressure on myself to stay on top of things at all times.
  6. Write reviews as soon as possible after finishing the book.  I stuck to this for the most part, but it was pretty hard when I was going through that reading slump.
  7. Comment more on blogs.  I started off fairly well with this, but then…I just kind of stopped.
  8. Adding in more personal posts.  I have my monthly recap posts, and sometimes I do a movie review or some other bookish but not book review post.  I actually did pretty well with it.  Well, better than I expected.
  9. I totally suck at exercising.  I had periods where I kept up with it, but what I really need to do is keep track of it, because that’s when I actually seem to do better with it.
  10. Trying new things with crochet.  I started a blanket that I still need to finish, but at least I started a big project.  I’m really proud of the Princess Anna hat I made for Halloween, and I also made fingerless gloves which is also something I don’t normally make.  And I made a capelet!  I also learned how to do foundation single crochet and the ripple/chevron stitch, and I really want to learn how to do more things, and make different things, because there are so many awesome things to make.

Of course, I did better with some things than with others, but I did accomplish some of what I wanted to do this year. Hopefully, next year, I’ll have better luck.

Happy new year!
