As mentioned in my New Year’s Resolutions post, I plan on having NO ZERO WEEKENDS this year. Essentially, try something special, fun, or productive every weekend.
This is a log of my progress on the resolution.
Out of my 7 (!) resolutions from last year, #2 (date more), #3 (dev job), #5 (decorate home), #6 (fail), and #7 (trips) were most successful. #2 only mildly so, but I did date more than I have my entire life, so that works. Really wish I had taken care of my mental/physical health (#1) more.
I have just one resolution this year.
It’s funny that I thought the Wild Card predictions would be easy. In the end I got 3/4 calls correct, but it should have been 1/4, given the Vikings and Bengals both gifted their respective games away. And now we face the divisional round predictions, which look much more difficult.
Last year’s resolutions:
Fail. Fail. Much fail. I hastily concocted those resolutions and really didn’t put my heart into them. The resolutions that came true were: 1) go storm chasing; 2) social life (surprisingly); 3) career clarity. The exercise, blogging, and financial planning resolutions crashed and burned.
This year I have put a much more effort into thinking about these resolutions.
It was the best of years, it was the worst of years…
If I could use a one word to describe the year: transformative. If I could use two words: a failure. I failed in 2015 more than I have ever failed in my life. But I learned a great deal too, and I dare say I am a different person now than I was when 2015 dawned. For one, I started off the year worrying about running out of brain plasticity to learn cool things. I ended the year worrying about how I am ever going to be as emotionally intelligence and socially adept as everyone else around me.
Highlights, in no particular order (though #1 is definitely #1):
Once again, I was 2-2 in my Divisional Round predictions. Who thought Denver would just lay an egg like that? Or that Dez’s catch was not a catch?
