i've had a month now and i think i have come up with some pretty good new year's resolutions. maybe if i write them down and share with the world wide web i will keep them.
resolution #1: read for fun. more specifically, fiction. i have not read fiction in years and i think it's about high time i started. i can fit it in before bed or on the subway. started my year off with the harry potter series and i am loving loving loving it. why didn't i do this earlier?
resolution #2: go to the fucking gym.
yes. all americans start off the year with this intent. i've played this game before and never ever never never ever kept up. but i've pulled out the big guns and made a one year commitment to a sports club. so i'd better get my $79 a month worth. this resolution actually has a few subresolutions.
a.) keep from stressing the fuck out. i've been going for about an hour or more for the past three days and already i'm feeling the benefit of those happy little endorphins.
b.) keep the depression down. see above.
c.) become healthier all around. during my fitness evaluation i found out i have high blood pressure (thanks mom!). so i'm working on that.
d.) work on my posture. apparently so much typiety typing has caused my pectoral muscles to get all tight which is contributing to my lovely hunchback. i need to loosed those babies up and tighten some of my back muscles.
e.) every young self-involved woman's dream- lose weight and look bikini cute. i'm hoping for a smaller tire, a perkier butt, and non second grade teacher arms.
resolution #3: help my cat gain weight and improve skin condition. i'm deciding to go with wet food for most of his diet with a little bit of olive oil. it shouldn't be too bad for him and it might do the trick. we'll see. i will probably also have to take him for monthly cortizone shots.
so cheers, folks.
