2016 Hobby Audit (Goals Achieved) Part 1/4

2016 has been a year of many upheavals that have distracted me or flat out prevented me from hobbying.  From my daughter's adjustment to a new town/first grade (including sorting out some learning issues), looking for a house, buying a house, moving into a house, settling into the house, finding out a baby was on the way, arrival of said baby, etc.  Oh yeah, and an Xbox One and a copy of Overwatch.  Those last couple sure as hell has not helped my hobbying.  lol.

A quick look back at my 2016 goals confirms this.  I basically failed all of them but let's dive in anyway and continue the tradition I started a year ago.  This will (maybe) help me align/calibrate myself for what I want to try to accomplish in 2017.

Given how bad I was at achieving my 2016 goals, I hereby declare that all ties count as "achieved!"  Otherwise, I don't think there would be a purpose to this particular post.  And that would be even more depressing.

Part 1 of 4, 2015 Goals Achieved:
  • More weeks with a game of miniatures than 2015.  I only managed 11 weeks of playing a miniature game as in 2016, the same as 2015.  Most of them with Mike at Mini Mayhem and mostly Guild Ball.  A game or two of Frostgrave and Kings of War.  A game of Mike's Mini Mayhem.  Plus stuff at Adepticon.
  • Read more books than in 2015.  Sigh, only managed to read exactly 8 compared to the same number as last year.  I am half way through another but I didn't managed to get it finished.
  • I also wanted to get integrated into the local gaming community better in 2016, which I think I have done.  There were definitely opportunities missed and other avenues to explore, but I'm going to give myself a success here.
  • I would say I spent less time on the internet looking, reading, watching the hobby and spent more time doing the hobby.  Part of that may only be because I have less time in general but that is a depressing way to look at it, so I'm counting this a minor victory.
    Wow, that's it.  The Goals Failed post (next) is going to be long.  LOL
