This year I decided to have goals and not resolutions. I frequently make goals throughout the year, but for 2012 I have some specific ones.
Through blogging, I have found my biggest passion is photography. I love it. It seems I mostly photograph people and I am going to work on creative photography of inanimate objects in 2012. To help me with my goal I joined Kim Klassens’s Beyond Layers class that will start in January 16th and last for 52 weeks.
That should keep the creative juices flowing for 2012. It’s only a dollar a week and knowing Kim it will be well worth it.
I also joined Rock the Shot Photography forum. I don’t know much about it, but it never seems like a bad idea to surround yourself with people who love what you love.
My 3 Boybarians has a photo challenge that should kick my creative goal to the next level by participating in a photo themed linky party once a week.
Finally in the photo department I am going to try to feel confident enough to start charging people for my time and overhead. I invest a lot of money in photoshop actions and lightroom presets to enhance photos.
Not to mention photography equipment and time. I am still spinning the idea and details in my head.
For my home I need to paint my trim in my family room. I kept telling myself in 2011 I would get it done and now I have a whole year to talk about it and procrastinate about it in 2012.
I need to get my 3rd bar stool painted while I am at it. I don’t know how some of you whip out one paint project after another.
Speaking of painting. My 13 year old is ready to change his room. That will be a big undertaking. The hardest part will be trying to make it like he wants it and not how I want it. Anyone else have this problem?
This spring I hope to figure out a solution to my grass that dies year after year in my backyard. I have to get my husband on board for this one. I am thinking of laying stone where the grass always dies. Something like this inspiration photo I found on a google search months ago.
I know I have other things I need to do to my home, but these are just things that have been on my mind.
Lastly I have a running goal. I exercise regularly, but I did slack when I first started blogging and I was not happy with myself. To keep myself motivated I decide on a challenge. Years ago it was to run a 5k. I can now do that easily. This year I want to try and run an organized 5k in 25 minutes.
