Being a fan of continuous, small changes, I don’t do New Years’ resolutions; besides, the dead of winter is a terrible time to try switching behaviours (Fall is the best time for that, when you have a change in the weather at your back). But in order to keep the goal hunter at bay, here are some things I will achieve this year, God willing.

  • Get involved with a local ministry, with a focus on meeting people’s practical needs
  • Firearm safety class
  • Letterpress I (registered this morning!)
  • Get health insurance somehow
  • Take a crack at revising my novel for a serious effort at publication
  • Finish the process of buying the house across the street, tear it down, and start building a new one
  • Make new friends
  • Keep the old
  • Play more hockey
