Happy New Year and stuff! I hope everyone of you had a wonderful holiday season. I hope you survived the family fun, the exsessive amounts of food, the holiday travel. I hope your New Year's eve was fun and that those of you who wanted one, got a kiss at mid-night.
'tis the season for resolutions and I have a couple this year. Not only is it a new year, but it's a rather momentous birthday for me. I'm going to be turning the big 3-0 in a few days. I don't feel quite so old. David Bowie will be turning 60 on the same day and poor Elvis is dead, so it could be worse...or better depending on your perspective I suppose. Anyway, in light of all this I thought I'd make a list. Here goes...
2007 - To Do
Submit an article (or 10) to a real publication, magazines, newspapers, websites, whatever.
Get an article published.
Find a better job or get a substantial raise at this one.
Tell my mom that I love her more often
Write in my blog more
Keep working on positive thoughts. Such as - instead of looking in the mirror and thinking to myself "Ugh, I look like crap today." I will think in a loud and confident inner voice "Damn, I'm cute...and SMART!" Hell, I may even say it out loud.
Take my cat to the vet for a check-up. No matter how much he yowls in the kitty carrier
Learn more vegan recipes
Try more veggies that I used to not like as a kid. Mmmmmm...broccoli
Learn to touch type a little faster
And of course..get to the gym/out for a jog/go hiking more often.
Now for the whole 'thirties' thing. There are a few things that I would like to accomplish in the coming ten years. Let's see...
To Do - over the next Ten Years
Graduate with a B.A. in journalism
Get a good job with a newspaper or magazine and write great stories
Get my masters degree at some fabulous place like Berkley, Harvard or NYU
Meet someone nice who isn't A.) manipulative B.) cold, compartmentalized and distant and C.) (a' la Bridget Jones) an emotional f*#k-wit.
I'm sure there are others, but that's all I can think of right now.
What's on your New Year's resolution list?
