Resolve and Other Myths

I think that most people who know me personally know that I'm not a fan of the Christmas holiday.  I think it's way overrated and people spend much too much time dwelling on spending an excess of money trying to get the 'best' gifts for everyone they know.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not one of those Jesus-Is-The-Reason-For-The-Season-Keep-CHRIST-In-Christmas types.  Far from it.  In fact, I cringe when I see that crap.  Everyone is entitled to their beliefs and if you're blessed to live in America, you have the freedom of speech.  That being said, shut up.  Really.  And if you have a birthday cake for Jesus on Christmas day, I'm likely to tell you that December 25th is not, in fact, the day of the Savior's birth.  But really, I don't want to argue.  Believe whatever floats your boat.  Here's how I sum it up (courtesy of Badass Geek):

And now on to other matters...  I've decided that after years of having a singular New Year's resolution (which was to never have any resolutions), I'm going to make a few this year.  Now is as good a time as any to turn over a new leaf.  It just so happens to coincide with the calendar changing from December to January.  I need to make some changes.  So here they are:

  • Fast food no more than once per month,
  • Exercise at least 5 days per week,
  • Study hard and make A's in all my classes,
  • Reconnect with friends who I've neglected my relationships with.
That's it.  Four is a nice, round number.  I think I'll be able to handle that.  We shall see.

  1. I like it. I've been working on some resolutions... I've never really done them or kept them so this year it's on. :)
