    Not gossiping -- what fun is that?

    For 2001, my resolution was to witness -- in person -- Sale and Pelletier win worlds. ;) I succeeded. :)

    Last year, I vowed to quit smoking -- after nearly 20 years, I decided it was time. And I actually DID!! For this year, I pledge to remain a non-smoker. And that I shall do!

    Oh, I forgot to mention:

    Loosing that ever-elusive ten extra pounds. :scream:

    Cleaning up all my closets and keeping then that way. :blah:

    Wasting as much time as humanly possible playing the "Bubble Shooter Game." :shuffle:

    It's not much fun at all, and I often don't succeed, but for some reason, it's important for me to keep on trying year after year... :blah:

    Good for you for quitting smoking! :respec:

    Be less busy, drop things that are a burden to my life, get fitter and eat better. And get on top of things at work so that I don't feel like I am playing catch up, so get all the tasks on my action items done or at least have a better understanding of them.

    Spend at least one hour a day cleaning/organizing.
    Stop using the elevator at work when I can use the stairs.
    Be a tad less snarky.

    1) Lose the 4 pounds I put on this Christmas, and once that's done, work on the ten other pounds I don't want.
    2) Find another job, or at least an extra job, that actually gives me satisfaction.
    3) Take my month long trip this fall.

    Work better, think positive, floss twice a day, eat more fruits and vegs., drink little or none (!), shine or clean shoes, no more eating on bed, save more money, don't waste time, be more decisive, forgive but be smart.

    I just want it to be better than last year, because 2011 was the worst year of my life...

By MLK Day they are usually forgotten or I have bean myself up for not having kept to them. So this year I'm just going to do my level best to be a better me and let that be that!

    Improve my Vietnamese! I can understand it when spoken to me alright, but my speech sucks. I sound like a California surfer dude when I speak it. It also takes me forever to say something in Vietnamese. For example, whenever people ask me how old I am, I have to count from "1" to my age before I can spit out the number. The older I get, the longer it takes me to answer this basic question!

    Turn of the year is pretty much the worst time to make any resolutions.

    In 1984 I resolved never to make New Years resolutions ever again. And I've kept that resolution ever since. Though the past couple of years it's been hard.
