I've been thinking lately and I just wanted to write my thoughts down.
Lately I've been thinking about New Year's resolutions and what mine should be. As
humans, we record our events with dates and each new year we reflect on what we did
in the past year and what we plan on focusing on in the next one, liking giving
direction in one's life. I've never been good at making resolutions. Mine were always
a little empty, like "Get straight A's" or "Be a better person" but it makes me
wonder if those are the things I really wanna do.
The answer is yes, I want to do those things, but I'm unable to do them. It takes a
lot more than a year to improve yourself so I've decided to go month by month and
make a yearly plan for myself. If I do that, maybe the things I want to do will get a
So I think I might make a list of things I'd like to do.
1. Do my homework daily. (....lol)
2. Study more on colors.
3. Read 1 book a week.
4. Get a job over the summer.
5. Be open and honest about what I'm really thinking.
6. Learn how to vent to someone.
7. Start running in the mornings (or at night).
8. Start a protest or wear a sandwich board sign.
9. Clean the house.
10. Study the theory of evolution.
11. Join the art club.
12. Join the Fall volleyball team.
13. Get a haircut.
14. Limit myself to 2 hours online per week.
15. Lose some freaking weight.
16. Do something important.
17. Sell all my video games.
18. Sell all my manga.
19. Redecorate my room.
20. Groom my dog monthly.
21. Sell my bird.
22. Plant flowers in my yard.
That's all I can think of and they're all pretty practical to me but it seems like
something's missing from the list.
I also seem to be wondering about other things lately. Like cooking, existence,
politics, religion, and a few others.
Cooking: I get really nervous about this thing due to being burned several times. I
also wonder who was the first person to cook something. A caveman? A primal human? A
wombat? Well... not a wombat.
Existence: What's the source of a person's existence? When did we start and when will
it end? What's after the end? What was before the beginning?
Politics: 2008 elections seem pretty interesting...
Religion: Why do people think their fate is controlled by a higher power due to
actions they see as holy?
And I'll finish this entry later....
