    Ha, yes, but that's only a small part of it. I think I need to break it down into smaller goals:

    1. Get into grad school

    2. Learn tennis

    3. Run a 5K

    4. Keep my house cleaner
    a) Unpack the boxes that have been sitting in the closet since I moved into my current place
    b) Donate old clothes that are no longer wearable
    c) Clean the fridge and freezer interiors
    d) Sort through old paperwork and file as appropriate
    e) Start vacuuming, sweeping, moping, etc at least once per week
    f) Fix the handles on my dresser so that I actually start using it instead of just leaving clean clothes in the laundry basket
    g) Hang the prints that have been sitting in flat files in my office for at least a year
    h) Clean out kitchen cupboards and create a better storage system for pantry basics
    i) Create a "landing strip" by my front door to keep keys, bike helmet, umbrella, etc
    j) Install bedroom curtains that have been sitting in my closet forever
    h) Declutter books and media

    5. Read at least one book per month

    2011 Vigo would suggest you buy some prescription speed before you start but 2012 Vigo insists that a good song to whistle should be sufficient enough to knock that sucker out. good luck.

    1. Get fit.
    2. Go to Coachella.
    3. Get all A's at least during 1 semester in 2012.
    4. Figure out my relationship shit.
    5. Drink more.
    6. Quit smoking.
    7. Find a better job.

    I think all of those are manageable and doable. Especially #5.

    It's kind of chicken shit to wait until the first day of the year to act on resolutions.

    Personally, I have already started with some of my resolutions, but if others need the added push that comes from the calendar saying January 1, I don't judge. Motivation comes in different forms for different people.

    Be careful with your incorrect vowels or you could end up being a vagetarian. (AKA a pescatarian).

    Everyday is a new start.

    If you have ambitions, act on them. Don't wait for a specific date.

    Your resolution should be to have more self control.
