A New Take on New Years Resolutions
Posted: Mon Dec 26 17:28:11 2005 Post | Quote in Reply  
  Here's the idea: everybody's got their own particular demons to face when it comes to new years resolutions, whether it's quitting smoking (I'm a year without cigs now!), losing weight, spending less money, getting out of the house more... whatever.

Those aren't as interesting as the little things.

I want see three lists-of-three for things you want to do in 2006. 9 items in 3 groups. Things that you don't NEED to do in 2006, but would certainly like to resolve to do.

It's a resolution revolution.

Here's what my resolutions look like:

Three bands I want to become more familiar with in 2006:

1. Sly and the Family Stone
2. The Jam
3. Roxy Music

Three cities I want to visit in 2006:

1. Montreal
2. Boston
3. Manhattan/NYC

Three things I want to become less dependent on in 2006:

1. My cellphone
2. World of Warcraft ( )
3. Coffee

So what does your resolution revolution look like?

  Things to continue doing.

1. Living healthy. Keep on not smoking or drinking, and keep on eating healthy and exercising.

2. Improving Guitar skills, so that one day I will be a God on the damned instrument.

3. Working hard at what I do.

Things to start doing.

1. Taking an art class.
2. Read at LEAST one book a month, if not more. Two would be better, three would be even better, four would be ideal, but not likely.
3. Try to not get miffed so easily.

Other three to come when I can think of some.

  Alright it's 2006. So where's my goddamn flying car? I was promised at least a flying car, and maybe even a house that comes in pill form and all you have to do is put a drop of water on it and it expands into a full sized house.

I realize the flying car is a bit of a stretch, though.

I was too, mesh. New Year's Eve and both of us were sober. What's this crazy world coming to?!

Ludwig, on the other hand, found some redheaded floozy and didn't stumble home till 5am. I found him curled up in the bathtub stinking of gin and mumbling something about rabbits and toonland.

  New Years kinda passed me by.. I didn't really notice it because nothing exciting happened to mark it. So I haven't made any resolutions yet. Hmm.

1. Figure out the source of all the ladybugs I find at the back of my creative writing classroom.

2. Be more understanding and receptive of american teens.

3. Get rid of the creepy guy who waits for me in my free periods and has somehow obtained my phone number and msn.

4. Stop obsessing about home and allow people to change.

5. Do more yoga.

6. Teach my friends and siblings self defense.

7. Be more thoughtful, but think about things less.

8. Stop controlling my mouth.

9. Don't do drugs unless for creative purposes.

10. Let people know I love them more often.
