2017 Goals!

So, what are my SMART goals for 2017? Besides “resist fascism,” here’s what I hope to accomplish this year:

  • Finish Threadbare and ship to backers by end of May
  • Get PMP Certification by July 31
  • Get CSP certification by December 31
  • Finish Naomi and the Dragon and ship to backers by December 1
  • Keep improving at bass (needs a measurable goal)
  • Spend at least 72 hours (roughly 90 minutes/week) in aerobic exercise (dancing, running, gym, etc. Walking and sex don’t count)

January 2017 Books

#1: The Lion’s Courtship, A. Wendeberg. I think this is a prequel to Wendeberg’s other novels about Anna Kronberg, late-19th century medical sleuth. It looks like an interesting series, tying into Sherlock Holmes, but the reviews are a little harsh about the books having cliffhanger endings.

#2: Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Truman Capote. A classic which I’d never read before. Listened to the audiobook, which is read by Michael C. Hall (of Dexter and Six Feet Under).

#3: Heal Your Headache, David Buchholz. Non-fiction book about controlling migraines. I had about a week of migraines at the end of 2016 and start of 2017, and decided I should finally give this a shot. I will post a more thorough review of the diet and progress after I’ve followed it for more than 4 days. I will say this: giving up caffeine is not my favorite thing.

#4: Beast, Brie Spangler. YA novel about a huge teenager who meets his manic pixie dream girl. She’s trans. Transphobia ensues.
