Oh Fine, Resolutions

You knew it was coming. Every year, I try to deny that I will have New Years Resolutions. Every year I make them anyway. And most years, I break them immediately, as per tradition. So here are this year’s resolutions, which I think should be easy enough to keep, although I reserve the right to completely screw them up almost immediately.

Be weird. Be the real me. Do all the stuff I’ve always wanted to do but was too scared because someone would think I was weird, or it would make someone uncomfortable, or it would challenge the status quo. Weird is the word for 2012.

Live with less. I’ve started with my wardrobe and my kitchen and my book collection. What’s next? Well, I’m definitely getting rid of a lot of the cosmetic and smelly-good stuff in my bathroom, but more ideas will come.

Know what I want. I’m almost embarrassed to write this one, but I’m going to do it anyway. I have a real problem with defining what exactly it is that I want. This year, I’m working on verbalizing what I want (not in a bratty way, just in a confident way) and going after it.

That’s it. Pretty simple, right? Here’s hoping.

So what are your resolutions for 2012?
