It's 2010...Oh Boy

Author: Anastasia V. Pergakis // Category:


The start of a new year. I should be excited - but alas I'm not. This time of year is supposed to be about new beginnings and making improvements to your life. So - I should be ecstatic! I have my new blogs up and running - with my wonderful invisible followers!

In an attempt to lift my mood, I am going to make a list of my "goals" for 2010. Yes, I said "goals" not "resolutions" - hopefully that will actually get me to get off my butt and DO some of the things on my list here. I made myself have at least 10, the last few were the hardest to think up!

1. Quit Smoking

2. Gain a substantial income from writing.

3. Let my husband live

4. Get my teeth fixed

5. Learn to write legibly with my left hand. (I'm ambidextrous but if writing with my left hand, it looks like a 5 year old)

6. Finish my 3 part novel "The Faery's Tale" (Read about my journey to do this here: http://thelabotomyofawriter.blogspot.com/)

7. Learn to wake up before my son does. (This means waking up at like 6 or 7 in the morning by the way.)

8. Start my own business. (Doubt it'll really be this year, but I put it here to make myself get the ball rolling at least.)

9. Find some really cool layouts for this blog!

10. Write an Epic Poem. (For those that don't now, epic poems are ones like Beowulf - a huge epic thing that tells a story. Always wanted to write one of those.)

So there it is. My list of goals for 2010.

On another note, hubby built me a small little office in the dining room. Seriously - it's like my own little cubical inside our small apartment. It's the coolest thing ever! This way I can work and write without my son crawling all over me. Granted, that will only matter on days when hubby is at home and I can be at the computer all day. Otherwise, I'll only be in here during my sons nap time and after he's in bed. But still - it's the coolest thing ever! It is seriously a cubicle, so the walls are only like 4 feet high and it comes with a door! I have my own space to let my imagination run wild. Amazingly, hubby did not KILL himself building it either! He didn't get frustrated and there was no cursing! I'm so proud!

After it was built, I went on a furniture rearranging frenzy as the cubicle is now in the dining room. See, our apartment has one big room that L shapes into the dining room. So we had the "office", the living room, and our sons play area all in one room. Then in the L part, was the dining room that attached to the kitchen. So, we just moved things around for something new.

I am off to do some writing and maybe some reading. I'm sure my invisible followers will miss me!
