Happy new year!

Thank you to all my wonderful friends for sharing 2011 with me. I have a feeling 2012 will be an excellent year.

I don’t really have any resolutions for this year. I have training goals, and writing plans, but no set improvements that I wish to make upon my life. But I know that 2012 will be exciting. You see, I have exciting news. On Tuesday Jan 3rd I’ll become a Text Coordinator, proofreading and editing text for computer games, and coordinating the collaboration between the localizations team and the writers of games to make sure everything is running smoothly. I couldn’t be more excited (unless someone wanted to publish my latest novel, of course. Oh gods of the publishing world, hear me). Anyways, that means 2012 will be a different year no matter what I do. I’ll be a full-time employee in a writing community and doing writingesque stuff. Life couldn’t be much better.

Other plans for the new year include a fresh training program, and a second go at the 30 day Paleo challenge after I read this inspiring blog post by Sarah Fragoso. The only person holding me back is myself. So this year I’m going to kick-start my new job with a fresh start at healthy, natural living and exciting changes to my training. Stay tuned for more info on that.

I have a good feeling about this year people.

How about you? Any resolutions? Any goals? Any premonitions about 2012?



  1. Grats on your new job. It sounds really exciting! 🙂
    My goal for 2012 is to be mindful of the Work / LIfe balance.

    • Thanks! I’m super excited. 🙂

      A worthwhile goal. Does that mean you want to work less or more?

  2. Happy new year! My goal at this point is to edit my next book. Ideally, I’d do that well before the end of the year, but at this rate? Not so likely. An ongoing resolution is to try to be more “in” each moment: be online when I’m on, and offline when I’m off. The less bleed between the two, the better for my mental health. 🙂

    • Oh, that’s a good resolution. I might just steal both of them, but definitely the one about being in the moment. I have a tendency to do too many things at once, and not doing any of them fully. 😦

    • Takk! 🙂

      Jeg skal kjøre på med post om programmet og prøve å tracke fremgang litt tettere denne runden.

      Hvordan gikk det med treningsprogrammet ditt? Kom du inn i det? Store resultater?

  7. Gratulerer med ny jobb! Veldig spennende å høre at du skal begynne med Paleo også. Matias og jeg har begge holdt oss til Paleo i et par måneder og er fornøyd med det. 2012 blir et bra år!

    • Hurra! Kjipt at dere flytter akkurat idet jeg kunne spist paleolunch med dere da. Men bra å vite at det er flere av oss. 🙂
