    I don't think I'm going to make any resolutions because I never keep them anyhow.

    To be a nicer person.... I have a short fuse...
    And to start exercising again... I completely stopped since winter break started...
    Also to enjoy life more... and be a happier more thankful person in general...

    I need to focus more on what I have rather than on what I do not (metaphorically not materially).

    Less time on SDN. Like all my New Year's resolutions in the past, it is bound to fail.

    1. To dress nicer more often. I think if I spend 10 more minutes picking out clothes and combing my hair, I will feel a lot better throughout the day. No more wearing leggings under baggy pants w/ my hair in a bun!

    2. To stop worrying about money. Both of my younger siblings dropped out of college, dont have jobs, live with my parents, but eat out almost every meal & shop all the time. I'm constantly stressed over money, how much it costs to eat out, how much gas costs, how much my textbooks cost. I'm going to take a page out of my siblings' books and try not to worry so much. Whats $7 for a meal when I'm going to be $60,000 in debt next year??

    I plan on napping during that section then writing a little blurb with a dreamy "I just woke up" style or as the pros like to call it "stream of consciousness."

    I don't really need to improve anything, nor want to, so I have no new years resolution this year.

    Get through as much of my Netflix queue as possible before I start medical school. It's a long list, so it's going to take some serious dedication.

    Yes, that is my actual resolution.

    1) - Tried and it made situations worse this year

    2) - Kept that up and it's the only thing I've done this year I'm proud of keeping from 2007

    3) - Too cynical. I'd rather criticize and lambast people for their optimistic appraisal of situations.:laugh:

    But that's not to say I won't try those:smuggrin:
