I’m back. Sorry about the long absence. First there were finals and then the holidays and working. You know how it goes, excuse after excuse. But I have officially begun my new year today. (It was pushed back 10 days to accommodate a trip.) But I am back home and ready to begin 2008.
After a decadent trip to Pittsburgh, I am ready to look and move forward towards a better tomorrow. Another year means another birthday, another semester, another tax return, and of course another set of resolutions. My problem, much like the UNs, is that my resolutions often mean nothing. Hopefully by sharing some of my resolutions with you, I will feel a little more pressure to keep them up.
The Resolutions: Blog regularly, not dwell on anything that happened in 2007, move out into my own sweet ass rockstar pad, learn 365 new words, beat all of the guitar hero games, have more craft days, do at least some community service, read 12 books, study for my classes before the exams, attend/listen to all my classes, be sociable at CVS, and the inevitable resolution to get into shape (other than spherical).
According to Wikipedia: “A New Year’s Resolution is a commitment that an individual makes to a project or a habit, often a lifestyle change that is generally interpreted as advantageous.”
You can check out some of the most common resolutions here. If anyone out there is planning any resolutions, share them.
Although this is generally a news/entertainment blog, I intend to have periodic personal updates about where I am at on the resolutions. I can do that, cause I make the rules.
