    New Year's Day
    I thought I would begin the year with another pointless poll.

    The question is how are you planning on starting off the New Year?
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    Votes but no comments . . . Everybody must still be feeling the effects from last night.

    I don't bother making resolutions or anything..but I do look forward to planning out the possibility of starting out new projects and the remote possibility of getting time to actually do it..

    Plan on doing visitations today at several nursing homes that my wife and I volunteer at.

    The three most broken resolutions made for the New Year:

    1. Go on a diet

    2. Give up smoking

    3. Better relationship with (insert name)

    And by the way, those three are usually broken with the first week of the New Year!

    Too late it is over already the 2nd Down Under but you guys are always behind us!
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Personally, I don't do New Year resolutions, just because it is a bad time to make decisions.
    People are not thinking straight, too much emotions involved.
    Just enjoy this special time of the year to the fullest and not be fussed with making a promise just because you have to ( or people expect you to ).

    Perhaps we're actually 364 days ahead . . .

    Ran 5 miles and feel a lot better. Must have burned off sludge from all the junk I ate last night.

    My Ney Year's day plan included trying to amend a downhill relationship, and trying a new fruit/vege diet for two weeks. So far, only the first one is going right.

    As for my resolutions, I'm sticking with the same advice/goals from last year.
    -If you need to raise your voice to get your point out, you've already failed.
    -Be honest with everyone and yourself.
    -Try harder on everything.
    -If you give up on that which you cherish the most, nothing will stop you from giving up on anything else.
    -Erase everything from your mind when going to sleep.
    -Don't overthink everything...just let it happen as you go.
    -Stick to what you believe is right first, and don't bend under pressure.

    As I look back on the past year, there's a lot of change that I've gone through, and I like it.

    1. Take ornaments off the tree

    2. Watch TOR parade on TV / tally last year's finances

    3. Watch football

    4. Eat pasties for dinner, cookies for dessert (while watching more football)

    5. Exercise (walk briskly in futile hope of not gaining weight from #4)

    6. Watch news, and more football

    That was yesterday, but it's the same every year.

    Resolutions have never been something that I do since not only do I work on a different timeline (school year) but I don't commit myself to something that can't account for an uncertain future. With that said, I do plan on continuing my plan to eat healthier. I've received some cook books and I've learned to enjoy cooking (the major roadblock previous to this new goal). It's a bit more expensive but feeling better physically and relishing in the enjoyment of accomplishing a recipe are with it.
