from this day forward (day one hundred and three)

i wil not

  • read those magazine articles that provide false expectations for a major life change (ie leaving a bad relationship, getting a promotion, traveling the world) that are not attainable, not just because it doesn’t apply but because they’re unrealistic
  • spend time with people that are not my friends. this is such a hard thing to do because i have become so accustomed to a steady ten or so people in my life, but it’s becoming clearer that i have more in common with random people than i thought (met a fellow nerdfighter today!)
  • spend less time on electronics and sleep more. as  as that, but i’ve heard it does wonders (i’m officially starting today)
  • become more worldly. i’m starting with a nigerian love story, but hopefully this will end up with me improving my spanish and understanding what’s going on outside of the u.s
  • listen to other peoples’ opinions. not just decisions on group projects, but people of different faiths, political parties, etc. and reminder:
  • understand politics. i listen to npr sporadically, but i have no idea about half the terms they throw out

making lists and declarations has’t always worked out for me. this blog is basically an opposition to the belief that new year’s resolutions rarely pan out, but i haven’t been able to write every day. or, i suppose i can, but i never do.
