Writer's Block: Resolved

A lot of resolutions, from the mundane to the truly ambitious, are being made today. What are your New Year's resolutions? Do you think you're likely to stick to them past the month of January?


I have a few. I made some before the New Year and a few more popped in while I was all emotional 6 seconds into 09'. Here they are:

2009 Resolutions
I resolve to move out of this house by my birthday--I hope I can keep this one. If I get my own place by this time next year I'll consider this resolution a success but it'll be extra sweet if I can do it in six months.
I resolve to lose a good chunk of weight--I really hope to achieve this goal. I'm not at a healthy weight so this is a very important goal. I'm going to be looking into surgery for Lap-Band or possibly something similar so hopefully that will help me.
I resolve to have a steady job and maintain it--I think this resolution is completely doable. I've had some odd jobs in 08' but I crave the monotony of a steady job. I'll be 26 this year, I'm overdue for that.
I resolve to be out from under my mother's thumb--This is such an important goal. Even if I'm still living here I want to be out from under her thumb. I want to be able to make my own plans without worrying if it'll cause drama with my mother.
I resolve to make more local friends--This resolution is a shot in the dark. If I make one good local friend I'll consider this a success. I am very anti-social and 90% of my friends are people I've never even met. I consider them true friends but I'd like people I can hang out with whenever it strikes my fancy.
I resolve to pick up my guitar and start playing again.--I haven't played my guitar in a few years, it's just rotting away in my closet. I want to bring it out and start learning again.
I resolve to make up my mind in what major I want to pursue in school and to start working on that.--I've decided on so many majors, I need to make up my mind. I'm not getting any younger, I need to know what I want to do with my life.
I resolve to be somewhere besides home for New Year 2010.--I'd love to be somewhere overseas for it but I'll be happy if I'm at Disneyland with a boyfriend (actually that sounds pretty sweet!)

Unrelated but just how adorable was it to see Bill and Hillary dancing! That was so cute ^__^
