there are a lot of resolutions and goals to be reading about lately. such is the nature of the new year. i love it, personally, because i love seeing what everyone else plans to do - even if i'm not making any resolutions myself. sure, there's lots of things i plan on doing in 2015. stop writing 2014 on everything, for one. but here's some things you definitely won't see me resolving to do this year:
to do anything inherently dangerous. yes, walking around chicago is inherently dangerous, but i mean those typical thrill seeking adventures. sky diving, bungee jumping, diving with sharks, shit like that. i went on the ledge with tara a year ago and even two margaritas in i still almost peed my pants. it was not a thrill, it was horrifying and i'm still reeling. so, no thanks. me and gravity, we have a deal. it involves feet on the ground.
to run a _____ (5k, 10k, marathon, etc.) hahaha. no. my mom always does these, but i've gotten real good at the 'wait at the finish line, take the photo, hold the lip gloss, pay for the parking' position. i think i'll keep it.
to become a morning person. 6:30 a.m. is my current limit, and i plan on sticking with it. i have no desire to wake up earlier and do things that i could just as easily do at 7 or 8 at night. from the kid who never once got up early on christmas morning, this should be no surprise.
to switch to wordpress. seems to be the thing to do in the new year. but i'm holding steadfast to blogger. i'm lazy, cheap, and i like the simplicity. plus i already know what i'm doing. if it ain't broke.
to travel more. nothing about travel appeals to me. particularly when it requires leaving the country, because i am the world's worst flyer. barely nudging out john. so nope, we're not going anywhere except maybe vegas, because it's not so bad to be that drunk on a plane to vegas. i'm also slightly pathetically incapable of being separated from my dog.
to save for/buy pretty much anything besides a house. spending freeze is in effect until september. no big ticket items on my 'to purchase' list any time soon! except a new toilet cleaning brush. but that's a necessity. and also not a big ticket item. hashtag baller.
to cut out coffee. i don't smoke, i've never had pop in my life. i've never tried any drugs either for that matter. and i only have 1 cup of black coffee each morning. leave me to my vice, damnit. we're happy together.
to take less photos of hawkeye. the camera loves her. and you do too.
every single morning. must be nice.
what about you? what won't you be doing this year?
