making resolutions, lists, etc
It's the start of the new year, and people are making resolutions and to-do lists left and right. Like Mel
, I don't wait til the new year to make resolutions...I just make them. Of course, making
a resolution—regardless of the time of year—is not the same as following
For instance, I hereby resolve that my crappy mood and overall distaste for most people shall not be taken out on my bestest bud, who bears the brunt of everything because she's the only person I tend to speak to all day. But I've been working on that for ten years and haven't been able to do it yet.
I've come up with some things that look good on a list, but if this were June or July I'd have made the same resolutions...
- I hearby resolve not to eat food after 6 or 7pm. This actually has a chance of happening on a consistent basis.
- I hereby resolve to go to the gym several times per week. This also has a chance of happening once my iPod arrives (I got a 15GB one...less cost than the 20GB that I'd never fill).
- I hereby resolve to turn my computer off and read a book in the evening. This requires me to feel less responsible for all things work-related, and gosh darn it I'm going to do that because it's not my company, after all.
- I hereby resolve to actually try
in my courses this semester, not just wing it. This will prepare me for the fall, when I'll probably be taking grad courses and winging it would be bad.
That's all I can remember right now. Oh, and I resolve to drink more water. It's good for me.
