Obligatory New Year Post

I hate New Year's Resolutions. I feel strongly that any project worth committing to shouldn't need a special calendar date to launch, and most resolutions just end up making us feel like failures anyways. With that in mind, for the first year in I don't know how long, I have decided to make a few resolutions of my own. These should be fairly easy to keep, they will make my little world a better place and if I slip up... I won't have to feel TOO bad. In 2012, I am committing to:
  1. Talk to my parents every Sunday.
  2. Send my Grandma a card and a photo at least once per month.
  3. Take at least one photo of Prof and myself per month.
  4. Get myself a new job title, one way or another.

There. I've written it down. Now I just have to do it.


  1. Samsies on resolutions. The only one I made this year is to pursue freelance writing/what I want to be when I grow up goals. Good luck!

    P.S. I struggle with the Sunday parent calls too. They should call ME damn it!

  2. Easy enough goals. I too don't believe in the resolutions that so many make each year.

  3. I like those goals. Good luck!

  4. Not only do all of those sound doable but they also sound inspiring on different levels. Good for you my friend!

  5. Those are great resolutions! I always follow that strategy, too, of achievable things that won't make me feel awful if I slip up now and again.

  6. I like and am copying #2 in particular. Grandmas's need that extra love. :)

  7. I love the pics idea! I should get on that, too. xoxxo
