RESOLUTIONS

It is a new year and this has lead me to do a lot of thinking. I want this year to be good. So I need to be good. Sounds easy enough, right?! So what do I have to do? Maybe clear some skeletons out of my closet and start new? I don't know how well this will go, but I am hoping it works for me.

#1 I want to apologize:
-because I used to just think bad words when I was upset...now I sometimes say them
-for taking more than "1 per customer" of the free dessert sesame pineapple at the Whistle Wok (mmm...best sesame chicken I've ever had)
-for sometimes not phoning back when I say I will (this one is not on purpose...I'm just bad at that)
-for ever telling my parents a half truth about where I was/what I was doing when I was a teenager (I was never breaking laws or anything-just sometimes hanging out with boys my mom didn't like...and she was right)
-for ever cheating in school throughout the years (even in Chemistry H when I'm sure the teacher knew the entire class copied the same 3 kids)
-for sneaking goodies to the movie theater (although I most likely will do this one again)
-for sometimes being too awesome at Boggle that I never gave my opponents a chance at winning
-for asking my mom if she needed help and silently repeating "please say no. please say no." in my head
-to all patrons who ever ate the same restaurant at the same time as me and my DA group of friends (we get kinda rowdy)

#2 I need to work on:
-being more kind
-not wanting to reprimand people who don't say please, thank you, or excuse me
-listening better
-taking shorter showers
-being more consistent with my exercise routine (or maybe actually starting one)
-eating less junk food
-not being a lazy blogger girl
-being a better real life friend

#3 I want to be:
-nicer
-more honest
-more understanding
-better at keeping my room clean

I think that's enough for now. Done and done. Happy new year to you and me!

I'm a Boggle enthusiast as well. One of my favorite games ever. Like you, I have no shame in my game and will not go easy. I'm on the phone all day at work so it's hard for me to get the gusto to answer my personal phone or return calls when needed. That's one I need to work on to.

Haha, how ironic! I talk about how good I am at Boggle and didn't even spell the word "too" right at the end of my last comment.

Great list -- it makes me feel a little shallow about my vow to move my body 30 minutes per day, though. :)
