    New Years resolutions 2012

    So anyone got any interesting (well, to you at least) resolutions they'd like to share?

    No. Never have, never will. Oh, is that a resolution?

    I resolve to remember my current resolution come 2013, which is nothing...

    To embrace all my new changes with enthusiasm and try and keep a smile on my face.
    Since I am only going to be about 8 blocks from work I am going to try to walk as often as I can.
    How nice will that be? I think great!
    It is all a matter of perspective!!!

    I'd pay to see that.

    Understand, once you post a pic, he'll keep sending them. He loves buying bikinis. I should know; I have a 10-yr supply.

    My only resolution is to do my best to make 2012 better than 2011, which shouldn't be too difficult.

    I resolve to sprawl Metro Detroit so it engulfs Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo. If it wasn't for the swamps I would have had Toledo by now. How come we don't have a Dr. Evil smiley?

    Doubtful it will get past I-69.
    There is no such thing as failure, only learning experiences. However, it is our choice to learn the lesson and change or not.

    My resolutions are:
    • pay off my existing credit card debt (very doable since I have < $2000 on 3 cards - and notice I said "existing")
    • get my butt to the gym after work at least 3x a week
    • not get upset when the Bills suck again next season (probably impossible but I keep trying to be stoic about their incompetence)

    My New Year's resolution is to quit wearing ball caps all the time. I'd really like to start wearing them only if I'm going to be outdoors or if the situation was meant for it (i.e. sporting events, etc.), but if that winds up being too difficult for me, I'll settle for no longer wearing them to class.

    I've decided to learn a third language. I'm think Esperanto.
