How I fared with my resolutions in May. Yes, I know it's late but I didn't get home until 11pm on the 31st and I was too tired to do it for the next couple of days. I hadn't forgotten.

Read more
Yep. Still not as much as I'd like but... yes, an improvement on last year.

Hike more
I haven't hiked in May, unless you count my strolls around Norway from dawn to dusk every day.

Have my hair cut
No date limit on this. Just don't forget. <- What I said last month <- And again. <- And again.

Use my left hand more
Yes. I don't know if I'm ever going to be able to write but it feels just as comfortable holding a mouse as my right one does now. And I'm really learning how right-handed the world is!

Go snowboarding at least twice a month.

Make some plans for New Zealand 2012
First decision: what time of year am I going? Because if I'm not going until late next year, there's very little point making any more detailed plans just yet.

Finish Draft Zero of the Sequel at some point
I'm half-heartedly doing it from time to time.

Draft One of the original by 31/12/11
I don't think this is likely to happen.

Be ok 2/3 of the time
Huh. Bad first few days of May. I can't remember how exactly but even if we say the full first week, that is seven days, that's still under my 1/3 limit.

Brush my teeth morning and night
I started off so well with this one in January and February...

Wear earrings more regularly

Don't try to contact friends
Every month I have an attack of optimism and break this one. Every month I get a door slammed in my face and remember why I made it in the first place. Of course I've tried.

Cup a day of juice at work
Not only every day at work but also every day while I was in Norway. I'm good with my juice.

I'm intrigued! Why are you trying to use your left hand more when you're right-handed? (I could guess, but I'd rather just come out and ask :-)

I'm completely right-dominated, my left hand is fairly useless. I'm not going crazy, I'm not saying "I'm going to learn to become left-handed" or "I'm going to learn to write perfectly with my left hand" but I'd like to develop some sort of coordination in it so I'm doing it gently. Over the years, I've frequently had the sudden urge to become left-handed, which obviously has never and will never work out, so I thought I'd be rational and reasonable with my goals. (I have also frequently - usually in about November - had the sudden urge to not wear glasses anymore. That lasts about three weeks before I get fed up with not being able to see anything. Point being that I occasionally have ridiculous urges and generally they shouldn't be taken seriously.)

Also, I'm a little resentful of these people who say left-handed people are inherently more creative than right-handed. I am not creative but I dislike the possibility just being dismissed in that way. I think there are plenty of creative right-handed people and I think there are plenty of practical left-handed people.
