Anyhow, it’s 2010, and I’ve decided to make some resolutions.
1. Listen to something other than The Beatles. Now, I must explain this. My love of the Beatles can only be described as spiritual. Religious, even. I listen to The Beatles like people go to church or pray. I couldn’t really tell you why, I do this, but I love The Beatles like I’ve never loved any other music before. And although I have a feeling I’ll never find a band whose discography appeals to me in the way The Beatles do, I hope to find a few songs here and there that I enjoy.
This is a video of Paul McCartney singing to me, by the way.
2. Be more positive. Apparently I complain…a lot. I also always complain about people who complain a lot. As a person who has no desire to be a hypocrite and tries to be honorable, I do not like to do the things that I complain about people doing. For instance, leaving dishes in the sink instead of putting them in the dishwasher. Because I always complain about this, I am under a tremendous amount of pressure to put my own dirty dishes in the dishwasher. I also complain about people who lead sedentary lifestyles, sleep in late, don’t shower, wear sweatpants every day, have ugly tennis shoes, etc. I realize I am an extremely shallow and vain person, but I chalk that up to a natural personality defect. However, I could definitely stand to be more positive. I can mentally complain myself into a total funk. It’s all too easy to do, especially when I wandering around in the tundra that is campus, face swelling up with hives because of my allergy to the cold. I think my boyfriend will break up with me if I don’t stop complaining. So…MUST BE MORE POSITIVE.
I don’t want to be a Debbie Downer anymore 🙁
3. Employ good hygiene before bed. I’m not afraid to admit this: I don’t usually brush my teeth or wash my face before going to bed. It’s pretty much out of laziness and having good skin. But I am now paranoid that my gums are receding and that I’m getting wrinkles…so I need to start doing those things.
4. Spend less time on the internet. SORRY. I love blogging. I really do. But last quarter I kind of got obsessed with the internet a little bit, and it was detrimental to my other love, which is reading. It took me like 5 months to read a 900 page book that I could have knocked out in a lot less time. And here is why I want to spend more time reading:
Oh ya. I’m cheating on my boyfriend with Jamie Fraser from the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. And if you have not read these books, I HIGHLY recommend them. OH MY GOD. You know how Twilight had a really disappointing lack of sex scenes? Well, this does not. Also, it doesn’t have that annoying quality of having vampires and werewolves. And Bella is not in it. I really wish this would be made into a miniseries on HBO. I would seriously get HBO just to watch it.
And those are my resolutions. I’m not going to be all like “I need to lose weight!” because I was already on a diet and exercise plan. I can’t wait until the January resolutionists give up and leave the gym because as it stands, it’s far too crowded. However, I believe that it won’t really get better until February is over since the winter Olympics are coming up, and something about the Olympics always makes the gym fill up.
I have no outfit posts because I’ve been wearing the same pair of jeans and Nikes every day with varying t-shirts and hoodies. The weather is awful here, and my Nikes are my only shoes I can get away with in four inches of snow.
