Somehow when one decides to do something, one does everything but
Perhaps it’s just me
I haven’t read much anything the last 2 years! I haven’t read anything from the lists, I think.
I don’t keep a reading journal
I haven’t been in the library for months, and I haven’t hidden one surprise in a library book. (Nor have I sent a message with a balloon or in a bottle either, or dropped any toys.)
I have a couple more fairytale books than in 2009, but I know no new fairytales.
I have been writing more than usually. Considering that I want to support myself with my writing, I have been successfully procrastinating and have managed to find at least a couple of obstacles in my head.
I did not write a book 2009 and I doubt I’ll write one 2010 either. I doubt I’ll finish NaNoWriMo this year either… Need to get practicing.
I haven’t translated one book.
I don’t have a writing journal, nor an art journal, nor a dream journal, nor a health journal.
I have a laptop
I have not been doing much art… I have finished three pictures though, and I am working on one as my OWOH giveaway… it SHOULD have been finished and posted already half a year ago. *blush* Well… I’m in pain, and everything is on hold, nevertheless… I’m not good with commitments.
I have managed to frame three (3) pieces of art since January 2009. I haven’t bought any new art.
I have been acceptably good with clicking for free.
I am still a horrible blog pal and blogger.
The website is “fixed”, as Yahoo! ended Geocities.
The mailbox is not empty.
I have not met an internet friend.
I have not written any letters to anyone.
I haven’t been celebrating holidays much, sending cards, making holiday decorations or decorated the house for holidays.
I have cleaned the apartment acceptably, but it’s back in black again. I have no energy or condition to do the dishes every day, and the laundry gets done every now and then – perhaps once a month.
I haven’t decluttered anything, haven’t given away things, haven’t thrown away much. I have managed to sell some bits and bobs.
I haven’t managed to decorate the house any more than how it was the last time.
I have been on one picnic and one tea party.
I did not celebrate my 40th “properly”. I celebrated it though.
I haven’t kept the economical plan.
I have given up the idea of ever learning to play LRP of any kind, D&D included, so no game nights.
I haven’t replace the plants.
I haven’t finished the 100 species challenge nor planted trees.
I don’t know how to make preserves, but I know how to bake Danish rye bread and how to make cheese, curd, yogurt and quark. I have Danish pastries to make, the daring bakers’ challenges to take and fruit carving to learn.
I don’t know how to trim the dog well, and I don’t have a trimming machine nor good scissors for the job. I just cut him as if he was a sheep, twice a year.
The dog hasn’t learned basic obedience nor tricks either.
I haven’t been chewing down my to-do craft list, but now I have a working sewing machine. I got me a new one, haven’t fixed the old one.
I haven’t finished SOS, 52 pairs nor Socktober. Socktober is in 1 1/2 months, so perhaps that…
I haven’t made handkerchiefs nor reusable pads.
I haven’t made me a corset either.
I haven’t designed my wardrobe, not for summer nor winter, autumn or spring.
I haven’t made a kite.
I haven’t learned any card tricks nor practiced my card reading. I haven’t done any readings to strangers.
I haven’t learned to do my make-up, nor do I have a tattoo.
I am getting suspicious about the world around trip… I am not sure I want to…
I haven’t fixed passports, and even out ID cards are expired…
I have been studying languages, even sign language.
I haven’t been practicing my short hand nor speed reading, nor memory techniques.
I didn’t go to the entrance tests for law school, but I hope we get my qualifications fixed so that I can apply to a law school here in Sweden.
I don’t think we’ll move from here anytime soon…
Haven’t taken photo booth photos, visited any exhibitions, galleries or museums… perhaps a couple. I haven’t been at a game nor a theater.
I haven’t practiced guitar nor accordion. I found an alto accordion
I haven’t been pampering myself.
I haven’t traced my family back 6 generations.
I haven’t taken a first aid/CPR course. I haven’t donated blood, nor have I lost any weight. I don’t exercise more, sleep well, I haven’t done anything to deal with the panic anxiety, social phobia, stress, overachieving, expectations, perfectionism nor codependency.
I am not living, just existing.
I have made a dorodango, though. It is easier than it looks, but demands more patience and discipline. I will make this again next year.
I am also able to use high-heel shoes. I haven’t tried running with them, though… I haven’t taken my shoes to a cobbler.
I have sang karaoke in public! (I haven’t given a speech in public though)
