2017 resolutions
New year, new resolutions!

General stuff
- Find a new job as my current one is... not a good fit for me
- Start and maintain a blog (for real this time)
- Improve my French enough to read a book and comfortably hold a conversation
- Improve my Italian enough to read a (children's) book and attempt a conversation
- Do more hiking, getting good enough to do at least one 15km hike once (I got a health tracker at a Black Friday sale last year so that should help keeping track of how much I've walked)
- Read at least 60 books (my Goodreads challenge)
- Practice the tin whistle more
- Learn how to play harp
- Learn how to juggle
- Visit Paris and Chartres in the spring, Naples in the fall. Also maybe London to see Hamilton???

Knitting & sewing
- Sew at least three skirts
- Sew a corset
- Knit a pair of socks
- Finish my 2016 weather scarf
- Knit a fisherman's sweater
- Knit a pair of gloves
- Finish at least two works in progress that have been on the needles for ages now

Drawing and other papery art
- Do more urban sketching, while on holiday for example
- Practice calligraphy more
- Practice the trois crayons technique more
- Set myself a drawing challenge and actually stick to it for once...

Plenty to do this year! I wonder how much I get to tick off at the end of the year. :)
