My New Years Resolutions

Thursday, January 3, 2008

Well, since everyone else seems to be talking regarding New Years and all the goals and goes.

1) To write shit down.
I always see things and think of things and assume that I will remember them...and I never do. This year, I purchased a book and have already started collecting clippings from magazines/newspapers, etc as well as jotting down ideas I have or that people mention so that when the time comes to buy a gift for anyone, or when I say to myself "oh, I saw that cool thing last month" I will know exactly where to find it.

2) To get a minimum of 6 hours of sleep.
I really don't get enough sleep. I must stop that. I curse my late-ways every morning when my alarm goes off and swear that the following night I will get more sleep. Pattern ensues. Not this year. I will adjust this to more hours should I feel I need them.

3) To get healthy.
I don't want to say "lose weight" because that seems to be a recurring goal of mine that never seems to work. This year, rather than lose pounds, I'd like to get healthy. I want to move to London in the fall and I can't imagine walking around London will be lots of fun while i'm out of breath.

4) To wash my face, floss and brush my teeth EVERY night.
Okay, i'll admit it. I never do any of these before I go to bed. Ever. I wear make-up to bed (although I don't wear a lot of make-up so it's not all bad) and never floss or brush my teeth. I think that, at least for the sake of my skin and teeth, that I should do that.

That's really it. I don't always like the idea of making New Years Resolutions because it seems as though we are all fighting a losing battle. Everyone encourages others to make the resolutions and that "this year will be THE year" and it never pans out. The worst thing people can say is "i'll start tomorrow" because tomorrow will never come.
