shhh... it's a secret

I'd like to start a petition to extend the year by an extra month. At the least.

   
Just for fun, I decided to check out the New Year's "Resolutions" I made in January to see how I'm doing with them. I don't really predict good things because, well, like everyone who makes resolutions in January, I forgot about them. Let's take a look and see, shall we? (my comments on the resolution are italicized)
1. do a better job of keeping up on world news Um... I know there were some earth quakes, and... some trapped miners, and... um... I'm sure somebody died, right? There were probably some elections too... In other words... FAIL
2. be more adventurous I moved to a new state, so that was pretty adventurous. And I've been exploring new bars and restaurants, and you know that's adventurous. I suppose I could use to step it up a bit with my activities' level of adventure.
3. catch up on tv and movies I've missed Actually, I'm kind of proud that I haven't done this one. It means I've actually had shit going on in my life more important and exciting than sitting in front of the boob tube.
4. listen to more music Yes
5. COMMUNICATE No
6. get in touch with old friends and maintain better contact with family (as in on the phone or in-person, NOT via facebook, email or texting) EPIC FAILURE! If anything I've fallen more out of touch with friends and family. I'm sure they no longer know what I look like nor could they recognize the sound of my voice if I were to call.
7. see people more often (at least once a month) See above
8. get my butt back into the gym I went to the gym. Once. No, wait! Twice.
9. eat more fruits and vegetables, especially vegetables Ugh. Major fail.
10. drink more water I'm trying. That counts, right?
11. do things for ME! *hanging head*
12. do things for OTHERS! (at least once a month) DON'T LOOK AT ME! I'm too embarrassed by my lack of selflessness right now
13. embrace my decisions and commit to making them work for me, even the not-so-good ones I have accomplished this one
14. NO LIQUOR (unless I am in the safety of my own home) HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA...
15. get in touch with my inner girlieness more often Inner whosit now?
16. continue to improve myself, career-wise (because a Master's just doesn't cut it) YES! I have a job now, and I'm learning all sorts of new things.
17. ask for (and accept) help when I really need it Um... still working on this one
So in conclusion, I have two months to tackle this list. Fuck.

Hahaha. I thought that #2 said that you were exploring new BRAS! Although that might qualify as being adventurous too.
