I’m not a big believer in making promises to myself or others simply because it’s January 1st.
But I’m making an exception this year, because there are a few things that I need to change in 2011. And several of these things relate directly to this blog… So here’s my list of New Year’s Resolutions that I will attempt to live by this year.
1. Blog daily. I have gotten slack these past few weeks thanks to the excuse of nausea and fatigue. But no more excuses, my blog needs me! My brain needs the creative outlet. And you guys need to hear from me (right? right?).
2. Photograph “something” every day. Again, I’ve been so slack. There are so many pretty things that I look at daily and think, “I wish I had my camera”. HELLO ALEX, just keep your camera with you!!! Okay, I’m gonna try to do this.
3. Watch more intelligent television. As I sit here watching ‘Cops’, following a day of ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ marathon, which was temporarily interrupted with a few episodes of ‘Jerseylicious’…I’ve realized that my mind may actually melt if I don’t start watching the Biography Channel and History a bit more often.
4. My fourth and final resolution for 2011 is to read more frequently. And I don’t mean just my daily dose of my favorite blogs. Nor do I mean my favorite magazines (I do read more than just Us Weekly I’d like you to know). Bon Appetite is my favorite, I love Food & Wine too. But Us is my guilty pleasure. But I need to read more books, I’ve just gotten away from books this past year for some reason. I love to read, I NEED to read, seriously I plan to replace Jerseylicious with a good book. (That is totally a lie, nothing replaces Jerseylicious!)
So what are a few of your resolutions this year? Have you implemented any of them yet?
I hope all of you have had a wonderful holiday, and are all looking forward to a fantastic New Year!
