I do realize that I have overlooked this blog for way too long and I am also a bit late to set goals for 2014. To be honest, New Year Resolutions and I are never friends because I often experience the frustration of not being able to attain the lofty goals I set at the beginning of the year. Instead of giving in to my forgetfulness and frustration, I often designate small projects as goals and cross them off as I attempt them. In addition, this “resolution” can be renew every month as I find different challenges I would like to attempt.
Inspired by Timbuk2’s “Real Resolutions“, here is my humble list:
- Learn how to make some of my commonly used items from scratch, if possible. So far, I was able to make a hazelnut chocolate spread similar to Nutella and coconut shampoo.
- Finish some of the half-done knitting projects, no matter how repetitive the patterns are.
- Start writing simple knitting patterns. They do not need to look elaborated.
- Try at least one new baking/cooking recipe per month. Life is too short to taste bland food!
