Happy 2010!

Isn’t this terrible? I haven’t blogged in like…forever. And the year/decade is almost ending. *cries* (At least I did change the layout and the header accordingly! I say accordingly because I had to adjust the header a little to make it fit, so it got slightly moved, enlarged here and there with the text, et cetera.)

I’m still working on the upcoming movie review, and my posting schedule is looking *something* like this:

  • Up (2009, film)
  • Howl’s Moving Castle (1986, book)
  • Play On (2009, album)
  • Enna Burning (2004, book)
  • A possible movie review (I’m thinking 2004’s North and South)
  • Love on the Inside (2008, album)
  • Prada and Prejudice (2009, book)
  • Another possible movie review (Inkheart from 2008, maybe?)

(Oh, and in case you haven’t noticed, I’ve totally gotten addicted to putting asterisks even when I could easily bold a word like *this*. Heh. It creates a different emphasis than actually bolding.)

After Prada and Prejudice, I’m not quite sure what to review next. I’ll leave that up to you guys with another poll. 🙂

I love doing this every year and go completely insane about it because as much fun as it is to compile this list, it’s totally guilty-inducing when I break them (and you guys know I do). So my first resolution is….

  • To keep following my resolutions

Good, right? Carrying on…

  • Write at least two reviews every week (maybe first start off with one, what with school and all)
  • Comment more on other blogs
  • Be more prompt (aka snappy 😉 ) with e-mails (sorry, guys!)
  • Read FASTER
  • Finish Draft One (and maybe Draft Two) of my current “super secret” novel
  • Actually accomplish the 50K goal of NaNoWriMo
  • Start a blog challenge and enter a few (and actually accomplish them)
  • Write more songs and poems (and for the former, enter FAWM)
  • Actually WRITE something for Script Frenzy (heh)
  • NOT PROCRASTINATING. MORE DOING WORK FASTER AND LESS GETTING DISTRACTED BY THE COMPUTER/MY STORIES/MY IPOD/WHAT-NOT. (Sorry to yell at you guys. Trying to get this through my head.)

Good goals, eh, you guys? What are YOUR resolutions? 😀

And, of course, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀

P.S. I forgot to add that a new feature coming up on NftN is cover reviews! I review covers of books (not necessarily books that I’ve read), so I’m taking any suggestions and then, when the time comes for me to write the review, I will use Random.org to choose which title! You can suggest on in the comments, or shoot me an e-mail. But don’t be shy! You will also be recognized as the “suggester” (heh) of the title. Ask your bookish friends, too! Horrible AND fantabulous covers are both being accepted (but please no self-published covers). Thanks! 😀

    Happy New Year to you too! I’m looking forward to all those posts.

    My two main resolutions are to eat less junk food (I finished a whole batch of brownies by myself last week) and write in my journal more. 🙂

    Happy New Year to you too!

    I’m not making any resolutions. Or, well, I kind of did, but it was something I decided in November, so I don’t think it counts. Haha.

    Anyway, good luck with all of your resolutions!

    Happy New Year!

    My resolutions are the usual- eat well, exercise more, be nicer and be happy! I’m also trying to stop annoying my boyfriend about his yucky junkfood (not a veggie in sight)/alcopop addicted eating habits too =P
