Another Year Over ... And What Have You Done?

Ah, the obligatory New Year's Resolutions.

My last post (not counting my Les Mis review of sorts) was in October. Stefers the Great, how far you have fallen. Remember when you used to post every day? Time to nip this in the bud and get some sense of regimen to your life!!!

My New Year's Resolutions are as follows:

1. Love yourself. You are beautiful and special, and you need to treat yourself as such. You deserve it.

2. Don't take work so seriously. If Joe Schmo doesn't get his iPad in the precise minute that he expects it, that's ok. Do your best and don't sweat the small stuff. Also, no more of this 16-hour day bullshit. They don't pay you enough to completely disregard the fact that you have / need a social life.

3. Be more social. All of your friends have forgotten that you exist due to the fact that you take work so seriously, so go out of your way to do things with the people that you love when you're not at work at least once a week.

4. You will post on this blog at least twice a week. No excuses.

5. Laundry is a weekly responsibility. Just do it, ok?

6. Decorate that sad excuse of a bedroom. Empty walls make for a depressing sleep space. Make it your own!!

7. As always, "lose weight" is on here. We'll see how this goes. Just try to eat more healthy. Start by eating breakfast every day, eh? Baby steps.

8. TAKE A FREAKING VACATION!!!!!!!

9. Be honest. Don't hold anything back, and live without regret.

That's what I have so far, and I may add more as the year progresses.

What are your resolutions? If you don't have any, why not?

Peace.
Stef.

Those sound like very healthy and useful resolutions! I hope you are able to stick to them. I haven't made any, myself, and haven't in several years--I sort of renew the last ones I made about fifteen years ago. Those have served me pretty well, so far.

Ah, yellow. One of my least favorite colors. I mean, it's nice and all, but there are so many versions of this color that are simply eye-raping. Anyways, on with the list.

"Purple Things"

Exercise #28: "Purple Things"
What things are purple? Make a list.
EggplantsOne-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater (see below)Bruises (sometimes)a REALLY beautiful sunsetElizabeth Taylor's eyes (does violet count?)Barney (I love you, you love me...)GrapesLavendarOrchidsAmethystCabbage (sometimes)Lots of different birdsPlumsVioletsOnionsROYGBIVThat's all I can think of. You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:



Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…
