New Years Resolutions!  For Ten Minutes, Don't Be A Cynical Poophead.
December 26th 2005, 21:23 CET by Hugin

Yes, it's well known that people rarely follow through on New Year's resolutions.  But embrace the concept a little for the purposes of discussion, okay?

Every day is a gift.  Whether a gift from God, or a gift from evolutionary processes and biology, however you want to look at it, statistically speaking it's pretty amazing that any of us are alive.  So here you are.  

Maybe you have a good job, maybe you don't.  Maybe you're in a good relationship, maybe you aren't.  Maybe you're healthy, maybe you aren't.  Maybe you're happy, maybe you aren't.

Wherever you are...where would you like to be?  What can you try to add to your life?  Or subtract?  Or change?  It's a New Year.  A nice arbirary date to take stock and maybe imagine new possibilities. Or even reflect back on the previous year.

I don't think I have any true newyear resolutions... Maybe do some fitness or something, healthy stuff.  
I quit smoking last year, and it's six months since I've blown a joint - i'm almost a saint these days if it wasn't for my never ending love for red wine.

Every day is a gift.


Hahahhahahah... no, seriously.. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHAHAHHAHAHA.

As for resolutions, I plan to actually work out this your and get rid of the beer* gut.
Other than that, there just ain't too many feasible goals left.

I've done the cynical poopyhead thing for the last few years.  And I really hadn't even thought about resolutions for the new year, but I realized I do want to make a couple.  I have a new girlfriend this year (been dating since October) and this relationship is going really well.  I'm even inclined to think that may be enough motivation to make personal improvements.

1)  I'd like to try and finish school this semester.  I know I'm not that far off, and if I took classes over the summer, I could probably manage it.  Its become increasingly tough to get even an entry level tech support job without even an associate's degree.

2)  I'd like to get my driver's license.  It's gotten increasingly difficult around here.  My mom gets real busy and we wind up going almost two weeks without shopping.  Its not that we run out of food, but the food bill really takes a hit on the budget when we spread it out like that.  Not to mention it just becomes more difficult to shop for that much food.  If I were able to run errands, it would make things so much easier for my parents.  Plus that whole feeling of independence and whatnot.

Things that I've long put off doing and finally have to face.

My resolution for 2006 is to stay alive. Sounds kind of silly but it's easy to forget the seriousness of what I do sometimes. Everynow and then I have to remind myself not to get complacent.

Mine are the basics.  Lose a little weight, get in shape, get my finances under control, and focus more on school.  Nothing too exciting.

- lose weight, exercise more, etc.
- get more (much more) involved with investing money
- learn about 3D modeling and try to get proficient with Maya or Max
- come up with an amazing idea that will make me so rich I'll be posting my 2007 resolutions from my island resort which will include things like: "Drink more wine", "Spend more time on beach", etc.

I've got loads of resolutions I really ought to make but mainly I'm too weak and apathetic to improve my life.

I suppose learning to drive could be one, but I've already been doing that for the past month or two so it's hardly a New Year thing... of course I was thinking about getting a motorbike licence after that so I suppose I could list that as a resolution.  Oh, and actually finishing, or indeed, make progress with, any of the multitude of personal projects I start would be a good one.

Ahhh screw it, I'm good at being a cynical poophead so why stop now?

Vigilante ?

no, but a in late october I was pretty much responsible for keeping a stabbing victim alive til the paramedics got to him, he was mugged on the canal path behind the elliot/priest walmart and I happened to walk by that area literally moments after the attack.  The knife had laid open his shoulder pretty much from throat to pectoral and he was bleeding heavily, I got compression on the injury and hit 911 on my cell to get help for the guy.

I dunno if he made it or not, but I did what I could.


Thats what I mean by making a difference, doing things to help others that makes the world just that little bit better.

Merry Christmas, everybody!

- I started exercising last week, I intend to get an unlimited pass to the gym and work out at least twice a week
- This will be possible because I'm going to end all my freelance work and generally intend to let work stop the moment I walk out the office
- I want to add some furniture and decorations to my place and get a TV, maybe some plants
- Make the right decision come september between continue working and go back to college to get my master's degree
- Need to find a master's curriculum that suits me
- Until then I want to be excellent at my job (implementation developer at a small web firm, doing graphic design, templating and some programming, also doing tech support and client communication)
- And last but not least I want to find love. It sounds really pathetic, but I really feel I need it. I stopped dating last year because even though the girls I dated were fantastic, it was all just play and there was no real feeling. I don't want to have a relationship just for the sake of being able to say you're not single.

And who else could enter and leave the house without leaving footprints in the snow? Only Santa and the Easter Bunny. (And I was chilling with the Easter Bunny that night, so I know it wasn't him.)

Try to meet girls outside of raves.  That'll help.

Well, raves and bars and parties, really.  In other words, don't pick up girls who are stoned and looking to party and you may have a shot at actual love.

What cliché?  Your constantly regaling us with tales of whatever rave/bar/etc you went to any given weekend, so naturally I assumed that's where you were meeting the girls you're talking about.  If not, then maybe you're just an asshole or a doormat and that's why it doesn't work out.

Fix yourself and then worry about love.
