To resolve in 2010


Maybe ride trains more? I don't know. I'm really enjoying this trip back to NYC from that New Year's get-together in NJ last night. Especially because it's giving me time to blog.

Anywho, I usually find myself making one, two or three resolutions every year as the calendar rolls back around to January 1st. Typically, my New Year's resolutions seem to be made up of:
  • A deep thought
  • Some tangible or practical statement
  • An off-the-wall comment that actually makes no sense at all
Last year, I had one simple resolution... "to better myself overall." I'm still not too sure what I completely meant by that (hence the whole "deep thought" theme), but what I think I was going for was to be "better" with my finances, at work, at school, in my friendships and in my relationships.

Well, seeing as I ended up buying a house, was late to work more than I would have wanted, withdrew from a few classes, wasn't the best with friends and certainly screwed up my fair share with some of the boys in my life... that resolution didn't work out so well.

For 2010, however, I'm shooting for three. I know, I know, if one got me nowhere, why am I even trying, at all?

Because I can. That's why.

So, for this exciting, even-numbered year, I'm going to touch on all three themes:
  • Find happiness, whatever that may be
  • Learn to play the piano
  • Just take a chance and go for it
I'm certainly happy with those taking me into this new year, so, perhaps, I've even knocked one out already.

And should I also resolve to blog some more? I'm sure that, if I did, all of you would be happy, as well.

HERE'S TO 2010!
(and has anyone ACTUALLY decided if we're calling it "twenty-ten" or "two-thousand ten" yet? I prefer the former, for the record.)
