In lieu of New Year’s Resolutions

Everyone, the new year has already started. It’s January 16 already. But I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions. Rather than feel defeated about stuff I wasn’t going to attack full force anyway, I do what I’m great at instead: writing a list of stuff I mean to do, and hopefully get around to doing. Here it goes:

  • Go to more concerts
  • Try out more music
  • Write more
  • Take more pictures
  • Read more books

(*all of these can fall under the line of “becoming more cultured”, but anyway)

  • Getting a bit more¬†physically¬†active (because using the phrase “working out” is too daunting)
  • See friends I haven’t seen in forever, and see friends more
  • Travel somewhere, anywhere
  • Leave the house more often
  • Use Twitter more (this one I’ve already started. I might become addicted. That is, I could try keeping up with it)
  • Try new foods

Happy Football Weekend(s)!

While I am more of a baseball fan, it’s fun to see everyone up in arms in my NJ/NYC area about whether or not the Giants will beat the Packers today. I love a good round of sport, but yet don’t feel like I should pick a football team. When I was a kid, I was big on the Dallas Cowboys (a.k.a. “America’s Team)- but that interest faded. I’ve watched the past couple Super Bowls and I like to watch big games, but I’m more of a fair weather fan when it comes to football. Saying this, however, I can’t wait to watch a bunch of great games. If last night’s Broncos/Patriots game is any indication on how things are going to play out, I saw let’s go TEAM!!
