This is a bit of a Chips Resolutions thread in disguise.

Things I did manage to do in 2011:
Buy a cat
Buy a house (and decorate said property without making it explode or dissolve)
Improve my (art) painting skills
Finish my first year of teaching

Things I didn't manage to do:
Edit my novel
Get around to selling any paintings

So, I guess those are on the list for things to do next year. What are your plans?

Izzy, you're not allowed to be an adult. That would mean I've grown up too, and that's not possible, surely? (Maaan, I'm 24 this year o.o)
Things I did this year
Broke up with boyfriend, got two concurrent partners, happyfaced and poly
Had my mental health do loop the loops and got diagnosed with cylothymia
Got pregnant, had a very swift termination. Dealt with feelings and gained Feminist EXP
Started cycling EVERYWHERE! Got all these previously known muscles bulging out of my legs.
Lost weight without meaning to
Got a diagnosis, finally, for the recurring abdominal pains: endometriosis
(Got three new scars from the diagnostic surgery)
Got "Pinky" and "The Brain" tattooed in Times New Roman under my right and left scars, respectively
Got an IUS fitted and found out I have a crooked uterus (kinky, ho ho ho >_>)
Re-sat a half year of uni, only to have more problems and worse attendance than the first time round
Had Parsnip, my black cat, find herself a new home a few houses up the street
Got driven into by a car at traffic lights. Had my first taste of terror at how big and dangerous cars are.
Met an incredible group of people this year and made so many new friends. Set up a local feminist group with some of them
Fell in love with Tuneyards

Things I didn't do this year
Write my thesis: instead I re-sat half the year
Re-take half the year and improve on last year's attempt
Have any money
Send Christmas cards

Things I hope to do
Graduate in the winter
Win compensation from the police
Go to Stockholm via train
Get CBT and start being a bit more stable in my mood

We are unraveling our navels so that we may ingest the sun.

If you have any postponing methods, I'm all ears. tongue.gif

Growing up isn't always a bad thing...

Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldnít be here if stars hadnít exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life - werenít created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget God. The stars died so that you could be here today. ~Lawrence Krauss
