It’s that time of year (you know, the beginning) when people make resolutions. So far, in life, I have a pretty poor resolution keeping record. But, I’m pretty sure that’s because those resolutions were always about losing weight or working out. Basically, I’ve always gone with the cliche resolutions. Lame-o. So, in the interest of not being lame-o, I actually put a lot of thought into my resolutions this year. They are as follows…
1. Read one new book every week of the year. (So, like, 52) Not only does this resolution play to my strengths but I think I will get a lot out of it and hopefully learn some new things- also, I think this will really motivate my writing. Yay reading! (Take a note kids)
2. Successfully become a hip grown-up. What I mean by this, is that I want to be a grown-up but not lose any of my hipness. Or maybe what I mean is that it would be awesome if I got some hipness and also acted more like a grown-up. Wait no, what I mean is that I want to get some hipness and live like a grown-up (as opposed to acting like one). I’m still working this one out a bit.
3. I want to start a peaceful and musically driven revolution with my blog. The point of this revolution is to get everyone to think of their lives in terms of music. So, it’s a pretty cool revolution. Basically I am going to encourage everyone to add a soundtrack to their lives. As such, every Friday, I will post a song that describes my week the best (please let me know what yours are as well) and then at the end of the month I will have a post dedicated to the all the songs (yours and mine). Also, instead of weapons, we will use dance moves. And I strongly encourage you to narrate your emotions throughout the day in song. When people ask you why, please direct them to this blog. Sure, we are starting out grassroots but I really believe we can change the world. Or at least be considered like a counter-culture or cult.
So, what are your resolutions? Also, if you have a problem with making New Year’s resolutions, please take it up with the ancient Babylonians- they started it.
