#365maxthedogselfie

When you’re a part of the blogging world, there are a lot of social media/ writing goals that get made around January 1st.

This year, a lot of my friends are doing the #365feministselfie challenge. This is fine and awesome, but I’m not doing it. I don’t have the patience to find the time to take pictures of myself.

Now my dog on the other hand… He’s a diva.

Max loves selfies. He tends to set timers on cameras so he can look perfect and posed. When I told him I wasn’t doing the feminist selfie thing, he asked if he could. He also asked for a beggin strip, but that’s another story. So, we started a hashtag ( #365maxthedogselfie ) and he took his first selfie of 2014. He’s having a hard time dealing with the fact that he’ll be turning 10 this year. So please follow his hashtag on twitter and Instagram, and show him some love. Every dog deserves his day, and every diva needs his stage. Let him have both.

New year, new goals

I’m not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions. “Resolution” sounds like a solution to something that needs to be fixed, like a crumbling marriage or a recipe that doesn’t have enough kick to it.

Last year, my life needed fixing. For the first time in quite a few years, I made a resolution. I resolved to not go on any more terrible first dates from Internet dating sites. It worked out because I had one last internet first date last NYE, and I’ve been inseparable from V ever since.

This year, I’m happier than I can put into words. Everything seems to have fallen into place, and I couldn’t think of a single thing to change even if I tried.

So, for this year, in lieu of making a resolution and fixing something that’s not broken (if it ain’t broke don’t fix it!), I’m making 3 simple goals. If I achieve them, great. If I don’t, oh well. Sometimes goals are achieved, and sometimes goals change. That’s the beauty of human nature.

1. Blog everyday.

My friend Casey blogged everyday last year, and, in her words, it ruled. I was inspired by the VQChat the other day, and I think I will at least attempt to blog everyday of 2014.

2. Save money for our wedding.

It’s 2014 which means HOLY CRAP WE GET MARRIED NEXT YEAR. We’ve officially set a date, picked a venue, and found an officiant so it’s time to get cooking! (And not just for the bucket of fried chicken I owe Nina either.)

3. Write a book.

With my new latte maker, I’m hoping to find the motivation– and caffeination level– required to actually bring the book idea I’ve had for a while to life. The idea has been met with excitement with some of the fabulous connections I’ve head the pleasure of meeting this past year or so, and I really hope I can finally make it happen.

Do you have any goals for 2014? Or even resolutions?
