New Years Resolutions 2007

January 15, 2007 at 12:44 AM | Site/Personal | No Comments

I’m not the type to make New Years resolutions because I happen to be the type that breaks them. I always figured, if I don’t make any, I can’t break any. But this year, I don’t know, things just felt a little different and I really want to have some good solid goals to work towards. I’m just “tired of the mess,” as I so eloquently put it. Maybe it’s the old man in me, coming up with all this, but you know what, I respect my elders. Especially when that elder is an imaginary older version of myself. Here goes:

  • Give up drinking (save for special occasions). OK, now I’ve tried this one before and it turned out it didn’t work so good because everything started turning into a special occasion–St. Patrick’s Day, birthdays, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, President’s Day, Fridays, etc. But, I’ve never attempted this on a New Years resolution run, so I’m going to give this one a serious try.
  • Eat healthier. In particular, I will be reducing consumption of eggs, shrimp, red meat, fast food and junk food. If I were a stronger-willed person, I might have tried giving up meat altogether… but as we all know, I love me my chicken. I think I already eat pretty healthy, but I think there are things that I could probably do without.
  • Work out more. A few months ago, I signed up for this program at my work’s gym where we logged workout times. I didn’t meet my quota because A) I was gone for a week, B) I underestimated the task, C) the holidays really are taxing on a workout schedule, for me, anyways, and D) work gets in the way. I need more motivation to get myself into the gym more regularly.
  • Get my finances together. I’m not really sure what this one means, yet… but I gotta get my shit together.
  • Spend more time on extracurricular activities. I’ve been out of college for about a year and a half now, doing the work thing. To be honest, I don’t think it suffices for life to consist entirely of working, eating, sleeping, repeat. Oh, unfortunately, TV and video games (god bless them both) do not count. I’m talking about things like doing some art projects. Some music projects. I don’t know, something.
  • Get more sleep.  Like getting to bed before midnight.  It’s 12:45 now.  You see, resolutions are fucking hard to keep.
