Taking stock : 2017
Hey ya folks! We’re into mid-2017.
I had updated my Facebook profile for a life event ‘Made peace with time.’ in mid-May, because I wasn’t freaking out about the time that has passed or is passing and things that are pending. I am glad the life event seems to be a permanent change in my temperament, because I still ain’t freaking out while I go through my resolution list made in Jan 2017.
Here we go:
Here are the resolutions :
- Win a medal.
Well, I made it to the Nationals by qualifying in the Pre-Nationals held in Mumbai, this June. The margin was appreciable. I needed 352/400 to qualify. I shot a 358/400 in a pressure situation. I am now training at Level 6 in GFG, which happens to be the highest level of training that they presently offer. So yeah, winning is on cards, the season is progressing well.
- Earn money blogging.
Why do I do this to me?!
- Code using SWIFT and also develop an end-to-end iOS app with cloud hosting and web services.
Have not started. Am not sure.
- Write a tech blog.
Same as above.
- Write a shooting blog.
This is possible. Need to start.
- Write actively on thedamsel.in.
I am not sure about the blog. I have been posting on Instagram, but it is very directionless.
- Read 100 books.
Like last year, I have subscribed to Kindle Unlimited. I am even more disappointed with their collection. I have read a few thrillers and a few man-eater series from Kenneth Anderson and Jim Corbett. Right now, I have finished Shashi Kapoor’s Biography and am reading Shammi Kapoor’s. If you have any Kindle Unlimited recommendations, please suggest.
- Write short stories and creative pieces.
A poem about my dead cat counts?
- Complete April A-Z Challenge and February Ramblings.
- Eat right, exercise and get a fit body. Participate in at least one marathon.
Exercising. Not enough. Need to work.
Erm… I am happy I posted on the blog even if it is ‘taking stock’. Hope you’re having a good year too!
