Resolutions 2023

Is this accurate? 2023? It still feels like 2020, the year that never ended. I’m not even sure what I should plan for this year considering how insane life has been. Pandemics and white supremacist insurrections and a spoiled manbaby wrecking a social network because people are mean to him on there (seriously, did you hear about the person who couldn’t delete their twitter so they turned it into a M*sk parody account and it got insta-banned???). It’s all kind of surreal. Whoever is writing this thing needs to get off the drugs. Because they are on, like, all of them.
I guess I should make some resolutions or whatever.
1. Keep looking for ways to promote my web serial (I am so, so bad at this).
2. Write the second part of that web serial.
3. Finish the new web serial project I’ve been working on (less seriously, I don’t have much of a plan for this one).
4. Write something else. Not sure what. I’m just assuming this will happen at some point.
5. Find a new social media to be active on since twitter is being slowly murdered. So far, Mastodon seems too complicated and Hive too shaky. There’s Tumblr, of course, but it’s, well, Tumblr. If you want to communicate entirely in Supernatural memes, it’s the place for you.
6. Work on losing some weight. Probably not going to happen, but I can try.
7. Start reading some new books. For the past few years, the only new things I’ve read have been graphic novels/comics, so I’d like to get back to reading some word novels again.
I also need to keep better track of my resolutions this year. I totally forgot to do a mid-year check in during 2022. Whoops!
What are you hoping for this year?


  1. I've read a lot of graphic novels lately as well. Hope you get the second part of the serial done.
    War in Ukraine, record border crossings, record inflation and gas prices - it has been a nutty year.

  2. I haven't been on Twitter in years, and have no interest in returning.

  3. Nothing wrong with graphic novels. I encourage reluctant readers to read them, as it's a gateway into reading. I see people have gotten into this thing called News.Post, but I haven't tried it. I was looking at Hive, but it sounds like it's not worth it. Sigh. I have dipped my toe back into Pinterest. Unfortunately, that gives me loads and loads of crochet projects that I want to try.

    As for what I want to do this year, first I'd like a negative Covid test. I'm not planning anything beyond that as of yet.

  4. It does still feel like 2020, doesn't it?

    I've been reading mostly graphic novels these days. It just feels more doable for me right now.


Please validate me.
