My New Years Resolution: 1600×1200

Dan asked me the other day what my New Years Resolution was this year, and I had no idea. So like all things I search google for the answer. Where I found out New Years Resolution started around 153 BC by the Romans. The placed a mythical roman king Janus at the start of the year. The Romans gave Janus two heads. One head to look into past and the other to look towards the future. This didn’t help my quest for a new years resolution. So I refined my query and found these to be the common resolution:

  1. Lose weight
  2. Stop smoking
  3. Stick to a budget
  4. Save more money
  5. Find a better job
  6. Become more organized
  7. Exercise more
  8. Be more patient at work / with others
  9. Eat better
  10. Become a better person

Well out of these ten, I would only say #4, #5, #6, and #10 remotely appeals to me. Saving more money is something I could do, but it would be at the expense of going on trips, going out, etc. So I’m not sure I want to do that. Finding a new job would be nice, but I really don’t hate the job I have, it would be nice not to have anxiety about future employment, but all jobs have that to some degree. I know me; becoming more organized isn’t going to happen. While becoming a better person sounds good, but what exactly is a better person? Just sounds way too vague for me.

So after getting discouraged at my googling attempts, I decided to search for comedic resolutions. After trolling through Dave Lettermen’s old Top ten list and I found these:

  1. Take up a new habit: Smoking!
  2. Stop bring lunch from home: I should eat out more
  3. Spend more time at work
  4. Start being Supstitious
  5. Drink. Drink some more
  6. Procrastinate more
  7. Watch more TV
  8. Stop Exercising: Waste of time
  9. I want to gain wieght, put on at least 30 lbs
  10. Read Less

I also discovered oodles of sites on how to keep a resolution. Those are of little help because I can’t decide a good resolution for the year of 2006. I think my resolution will be to have more self-confidence, to stop being so negative. On the other hand after writing this and looking at the length, I think my resolution should be to write shorter blog posts, or drink more.
