Happy 2015!

happynewyearLast year was eventful, and not the best on record for me. I’m hopeful that 2015 will be much better, in a lot of different ways. This morning I took a look back at my resolutions for last year – some I did well on, others not so much. This year I hope to do better…seems like I say that every year, but sometimes repetition is the charm.

This year, my resolutions are:

1. Post more on my blog.  This was a resolution I made last year, and I did, in fact, accomplish it. This year I want to post even more, and keep up with several regular posts.

2. Comment more on others’ blogs. I read a lot of blog posts, but I don’t comment as often as I should. This year I’m going to try and comment a lot more often.

3. Write, write, write! I was thrilled to get my first story published this past year, and I’m hoping to get a few more published in 2015. I intend to set aside time every night to write, whether it’s a blog post, a rambling, or an actual story idea. The more I write, the better I will be.

4. Study! Last fall I took the plunge and started learning Japanese. It was amazingly hard at first, but I feel like I’m getting a grasp of the language, both listening to and writing. In addition to writing daily, I plan to study for at least a few minutes every day, and be more proficient in this language.

5. Get in better shape.  Yes, this is on my list once again. I thought I was on track last year, but an amazing amount of things conspired against me. This is going to be the year, as I’ve got a lot of good reasons to make it happen.

6. Get better organized. This shows up every year in my resolutions. I failed miserably last year, so this year I may be defining “better organized” a bit more loosely. Honestly, at this point, anything will be “better” than last year!

7. Have more sex. Last, but certainly not the least of my resolutions! This is something that should be fairly easy to do, and a pleasure to do at that.

I hope everyone has a happy and successful New Year – here’s to 2015!

2013 is finally over, so here’s to 2014! I know I’m hoping for a good year this year, and I’m hoping I can stick to my resolutions. Some will be easier than others, but I think that’s always the case.

So, this year I resolve to:
1. Post a bit more on my blog. This was, in fact, a resolution I made last year, and I was actually successful with it. But this year I’d like to post just a bit more, whether it’s themed posts, pictures, reviews, or just writing.

2. Write, write, write! I did a fair amount of writing last year, and sent in several submissions, which I’m still waiting to hear about. This year, I am going to be watching for submission calls and submitting more. I’m going to try and write for at least 1/2 hour a day. Not just erotica, although that’s going to be my main focus – I’ve got a few horror novels started that really need some tuning and additions.

3. Get better organized. This seems to show up every year in my resolutions, and I typically fail miserably. This year, I really need to work on this, especially all those damned boxes in my garage. I also am going to attempt to go through the mail daily and keep track of things better.

4. Get in better shape. Yet another resolution that shows up every year. Last year I really got off track, in part because of some medical issues and surgery, but this year I’m working at it again. My partner is going to do this with me, so hopefully we keep each other motivated!

5. Have more sex. Last, but certainly not least! I don’t think I’ve reached the point where I can’t have more – there’s certainly room for improvement and addition!

I hope everyone has a Happy New Year!

Happy Holidays!

Wishing all my friends, family, and readers, a most happy Thanksgiving! As it’s also the start of Hanukkah, happy Hanukkah to my Jewish friends! This is a day to be thankful, and even though it’s been a rather rough year for me:

– I am thankful that, even though I lost one job, I got a much better one, with a sane boss
– I am thankful that everyone I love is well now, even though there have been some rough patches and health scares
– I am thankful that my own surgery went well, and that I can be home and be pampered for the next few weeks
– I am thankful that I have such wonderful people in my life

Best wishes to everyone, and if you’re joining the mobs of Black Friday shoppers, be careful out there!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

My day started out great – a bouquet of beautiful flowers, some chocolates, and a rather fun and risque card.  We finished it off with a candlelight dinner and just a bit of wine…well, more than a bit, really.  The kinkier stuff will be coming later, and I plan on having a rather extended oral session, as I’m in the mood to give a long, slow blowjob.  Hope your Valentine’s day was as good!

Happy New Year!

It’s finally 2013! Last year had to be one of the worst years of my life, in so many ways. This year can’t possibly be worse, and I’m going to do everything in my power to make sure it isn’t.  I have a lot of plans for this year, and several resolutions. I seriously debated about making any at all, as you know as well as I do how easily they seem to get broken. But, after a lot of thought, I decided to go ahead with them.  Short list, but shorter is more likely doable.

This year, I resolve:

  • To post more often. Yes, that includes more reviews (and possibly some special pictures that have been requested), but also I plan to post more about … stuff. Will it be sexual? Probably, but maybe not. I have been missing writing, and I plan to make some time for it this year. As always, your feedback will be appreciated, and if you have any suggestions, let me know.
  • To become (at least better) organized. Over the past year, I became more disorganized than I think I ever was in my life. It’s not doing me any good, and so I’m going to be making a serious attempt to do this, whether it’s bills, reviews, housecleaning, you name it.
  • To get in (better) shape. This seems to be a staple on my list, but this year it’s a definite goal, and as part of my new organizational skills *ahem*, I am going to schedule it in and make it happen.

Simple, right? We’ll see, but I’m hoping for success.  I thought about adding having more sex to the list, but at this point I’m not sure if that’s possible.

Here’s wishing you a Happy New Year!
