January Resolutions

It's time to get the new year started off right by making a few resolutions for this month.  I know that it'll take me some time to get back into the swing of things after having so much leisure time last month, so I'm not going to make any goals that are too difficult this month.  I hope.  

Write At Least 2,013 Words

This needs to be a priority this month.  I did a little last month, but I have yet to write an ending, so that will be my focus.  I was going to make it an even 2,000, but I figured it might be cuter and easier to remember this way.  Considering that I almost wrote 2,000 words every day during NaNoWriMo, this should be simple, right?  ...Right? 

Learn At Least Two New Songs

I'm currently not taking piano lessons, but I still enjoy teaching myself new songs.  I think that I should take some time this month to learn some new songs and not drive my family crazy with the same ones all the time.  It would also be good to challenge my technique, as I've let my fingers get a bit lazy lately.  Holding down the W key does not count as a finger exercise.  

Read At Least 5 Books

This should be a snap this month... at least I hope so.  The Scarlet Pimpernel is definitely the next book I want to read after I finish Cinder.  I'd also like to re-read The Count of Monte Cristo sometime soon, as I got it in a leather version for Christmas, but we'll see how I do. 

I'm not challenging myself too much this month, but hopefully just enough to get me motivated.  What about you?  Any resolutions for the year or for this month?
