New Year Resolutions

It's that time of the year. Time to set goals for 2012. I am not going overly ambitious this year, but hoping to do more reading in the year to come than I did in 2011. So, in short my goals are:

1. Read 42 books.
2. Discover 15 new authors.
3. Read at least one book published before 1900.

These should not be incredibly difficult to meet, except that I better get cracking on that reading. Perhaps to meet my reading goals I ought to set so goals like, watch at most 6 TV series at a time. But since I love discovering new TV series (and I am re-watching Firefly for the 7th time), that's not going to happen. So instead I decided to set myself some fitness goals this year, which I am recording here so that I cannot back-out of them:

1. Do a clean climb of a 5.11b
2. Do 20 pull-ups in a row

I have high hopes for 2012. I hope it will be the best year yet with more reading, climbing, working, gaming, and friends. Now I am off to make some tea and continue reading Leviathan Wakes.


  1. One book from before 1900 is brilliant; I'm amazed I didn't get that done last year. I also like the 20 pull up effort. I'm on board for both.

    Where did the number 42 come from?

  2. Good to have company :D
    42 is my tribute to Douglas Adams, the meaning of life and all that :)
