Twenty Ten: Absolve, Resolve, Procrastinate... Repeat?

Hello everyone!

Sorry no updates for awhile! Who reads this anyway?  I've been in a funk lately. I think it's a hangover from the holidays. That time of year is full of everything: food, fun, festivities, fluffy- cake, friends, family, and fromage (if it doesn't start with an F its no fun). Come January, you're stuck in the cold.

When the actual new year rolls around people feel the need to turn over a new leaf and change. I think its great that our culture encourages self reflection, in some small way. As I write this post gyms are a bit more crowded, someone out there is applying a nicorette patch, and a donut was passed over. Progress in baby steps, I say! I hope everyone out there sticks to their resolutions!

Many moons ago I resolved to not have new year resolutions. I prefer to call them hopes or goals. I like to think about things I would like to do in the course of the new year. Like

-Save Money!

-Buy less crap I don't need--- Buy only things I love!
-Be less materialistic (this is really hard when you really love clothes, maybe I'll try thrifting this year)

-Make more stuff (cook, sew, etc)
-Save for a DSLR (aren't you tired of my crappy photos?)
-Volunteer More

Things I'm looking forward to in 2010

-Concerts: Muse and JayZ
-Trips: Hong Kong and (one other destination: Japan or Taiwan)
-Trying new things

Go out there and do something people!
