My 2010 (somewhat reasonable) Resolutions!

Happy New Year! Holy cow, can you believe '09 is over? I can't! It went by as if I was in a whirl wind or something; spin, spin, spin and poof! Hello 2010! Welcome to the brand new decade!

But then the question arises... what do we call the last decade? The "Two Thousands" seems too boring I'd say. And when living in Utah you don't pronounce the word "thousands" so it would end up sounding like this: "Two Thousens". So what to call it? The Zero's? The O's? The No Name Decade? I dunno, I'm sure someone smart will come up with something real quick.

Anywho, last night... well actually this morning at about 2, but you get the point... I decided to make a very short few New Year Resolutions even though I will probably forget about them in a few weeks and then when I look back on this next year I'll tell myself, "Crap, I let myself down." I will then make new resolutions in the hopes that I will indeed complete them only to find myself in a bitter cycle of never ending self-disappointment. But who cares, right?

2010 RESOLUTIONS
 1. Get organized. Anyone who has ever known me knows that I am horrible when it comes to organization. This and a combination of ADD and OCD and you get one giant, unorganized, walking, talking... thing. So I have decided that I will keep a day planner and I will sit down every Sunday afternoon and I will plan out the rest of my week. There will be school time, homework time, me time, family time, friend time, study time, etc. We'll see how it goes.


2. Travel as much as is humanly possible. To make myself not feel so bad that I turned down the internship at Disneyland, I have decided that I want to travel as much as I can. Even if it's just going down to Moab or St. George or something with friends. I LOVE to travel, and I want to see the world before my life ends. I might even try to study abroad in Cambridge this summer. We'll see what happens.

3. Finish at least half of my book. Yes, I am indeed writing a book... or at least trying to. Ideas for stories are always swimming around in my head and it has only been recently that I started writing them all down whenever a new one pops into my mind. I've noticed that a lot of the stories I come up with can mesh together to make one big story so I am in the process of sorting that all out. Needless to say, it isn't easy. Sometimes I get an amazing idea, sit down at my laptop to write it all down, and then my mind goes blank. Or I'm in the middle of writing something and then I realize it sucks, so I delete it and then feel guilty because I didn't try. But anways, I'm going to attempt to write at least half of a whole story. Wish me luck.
 
3. Live by these rules... Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances, you just have to live life to the fullest. Laugh as much as you can, spend all your money, tell someone what they mean to you, tell someone off, speak out, dance in the pouring rain, hold someones hand, comfort a friend, pig out, fall asleep watching the sun come up, stay up late, be a flirt, smile until your face hurts, don't be afraid to take chances or fall in love... and most of all live in the moment, cause when you look back someday knowing you have no regrets, it's going to be what makes you smile.
