So, if you remember this, Here’s the status on that:
I failed #1. Failed in a couple of months. Greasy Chinese food was the likely culprit. 🙁
As for #2, I’m still in the same position over at the university. That being said, I did get a raise, so it makes up for it a bit. (No one else on campus got raises-eek.) Don’t get me wrong; I enjoy my work and I enjoy who I work with. I’m not complaining about that. I just want something that more fulfilling and exciting, before I get the old man syndrome and get tethered to a particular lifestyle. Luckily, I live in the Midwest. Each Winter day reminds me why I want to leave. I figure, I’ve lived about 20 (approaching 21) years in the Midwest. I’m due for a change. I should be able to enjoy a climate controlled area for once. None of this 100% humidity summer, below freezing winter nonsense!
In addition, I had a 3rd resolution that I didn’t mention. I wanted to lose some weight. I had a lot of things on my mind towards the end of 2009, and the stress kept piling on. And boy, the stress hit my metabolism hard. I racked on a considerable amount of weight. In the last few of months of 2009, I gained over 15 pounds, most of which was BEFORE Thanksgiving and Winter Break. Generally I’m a happy person, and apparently (for me,) being happy = burning more calories. I peaked at about 183 pounds, and I felt heavy.
And so, in 2010, after willing myself to be happier and more content, and with the aid of the local gym, I’ve dropped down to 174 pounds. I’ve lost fat, and gained a few pounds of awesomeness. No, I’m not buff. But I won’t be embarrassed at the beach either. (Well, maybe a little bit.)
For 2011, I want to continue that trend. Therefore, here are my resolutions for 2011:
Lose some more weight, gain more sexiness.
Find a better job, somewhere warm!
Read more awesome books.
Draw more comics.
And about them comics… sorry. I’ve been distracted. Blame Bioware! Finished Mass Effect 2 recently. Very enjoyable. Looking forward to the 3rd game. And minecraft. It kindles the designer blood in me. bleh.
2007 AND 2008 Total Comics: 55
2009 Total: 75
2010 Total: 63
Bleh. My rate went down.
AND SO, I’LL SAY IT NOW: I will draw NO LESS than 100 comics this year. Yes, you read right. One Hundred. That is one every 3.65 days.
The game is ON!!!!
