I love New Year’s Resolutions. And not only because they provide a month of no lines at donut shops.
Also because it’s easy to let life get out of hand and stop trying to improve.
That’s why I find it useful to make a yearly list of resolutions, goals I hope to accomplish over the coming twelve months.
Wish me luck.
*I will build a fort made entirely out of sheets and dreams*
(Other materials allowed include chairs and hopes.)
Preferably in my own home, but others’ homes will be accepted.
*I will throw a drink in someone’s face*
In my entire life, I’ve never thrown a drink in someone’s face.
This obviously needs to be remedied.
Hopefully with me finding myself within the perfect drink throwing situation.
But if not, come December, I will attack an innocent.
*I will meet a clown*
I really, really hope he/she doesn’t try to murder me.
But we all know that’s a pretty big possibility.
*Grow my Facebook followers to 276*
At first I was going to make my goal to increase my subscribers by one.
But that would have required the effort of going to Feedburner and finding out how many subscribers I have.
And Facebook tells me in that nifty widget to the right.
Plus, I like to dream big.
#276, I know you’re out there.
And, one day, we’ll meet.
(Cue: glorious mental montage of meadow running and beach tumbling.)
*I will answer every e-mail the moment it arrives and certainly not allow everything to pile up until I eventually have thousands of unread messages and a decreased hope for the future*
This one is a lie, as I believe every New Year’s Resolution list should include one trick entry.
Oh, Mr. Email, you’ve beaten me again.
(Is what I’ll be saying in roughly six months.)
*I will only allow books I’ve actually read to grace my bookshelves*
On the bright side, this is actually super easy to accomplish.
On the even brighter side, I now look like I live in a horror movie book store.
I’m somewhat worried I’ll get behind on my list and end up frantically punching a clown on December 31st
Which makes it my first rational fear of 2012
What are your 2012 resolutions?
