Review from last year:

  • I did complete a puzzle (never got around to collecting and sharing pictures)
  • I did scratch the “make a small app” itch
  • No small book, but … there are some collage-ish scribbles I’ll pick up some other time
  • No 10K, but … I did run 15 minutes (nearly) every Sunday morning

Tentative Resolutions:

  • (this is a bit pointless, unless revised during the year, but still …)
  • Sustain what little exercise routine I have!
  • Try (or keep trying) to get a good sleep routine
  • Complete one more puzzle
  • In general, create and share more
