I Resolve...

OK, you all! It has been a long time since my last blog post, and while I would love to blame it all on my busy life, that is really no excuse! Plenty of people who I know are busier than I am find the time to blog on a regular basis. I guess my main excuse is that I put most of my time and energy into my class blog, and need to try and figure out the art of managing more than one blog (successfully) at a time. Not to mention the fact that I never really feel like the things going on in my daily life are blog-worthy. Then I took a good look at some of the blogs that I like to follow, and realized that their lives really aren’t much more blog-worthy than mine, but I am fascinated by them nonetheless.

So my belated New Year’s Resolution is to put a new blog post up every week. Now
, normally I don’t do New Year’s resolutions, because they make me feel like a failure. Over the years, I’ve found that making New Year’s resolutions is pretty much tantamount to trying to make myself into someone who I’m not. I mean, if I really was the type of person who could get up at 5:00 a.m. everyday and work out, or make elaborate 5-course meals every night, wouldn’t I already be doing it? Clearly, I am NOT that type of person, and resolving to be will only end with me beating myself up for sleeping late or serving mac & cheese for dinner. Again.

However, this is one resolution that I think I can keep. I think that I might be th
e type of person who can post on my blog once a week. I’m not saying that my posts will always be exciting, or relevant, or even GOOD, I’m just saying that they will be…here.

So, speaking of resolutions, has anyone ever made any New Year’s resolutions that they’ve managed to keep? If you have, I want to know what they are!
