    I'm doing pretty good so far. Haven't had a drink since the day before new years eve. Went from smoking 30 cigarettes a day down to approx 0.5 a day. I've been a lot calmer behind the wheel as well.

    Whoa, the company I work for has made it to the Coachella forum on its own merit...I officially feel like I've made it now!

    2. Continue to train for acrobatic recital I'm doing in April.
    3. Be a better house keeper.
    4. Call my parents once a week.
    5. Get a flu shot this fall. (This will be a first. I got the respiratory flu thing off & on for 6 weeks this fall. This messed up my work schedule and made the holidays muy stressful).
    6. Post more on this board. In the last few months I haven't. My ex-employer passed away in June. I had been busy scrambling for work gigs the latter part of last year.
    7. Try to be on time. For anything.
    I'm pretty sure this is counterintuitive.

    I've now submitted three grad school applications and been invited to come interview at one school. I've read two books, and I've found a training buddy for running. I am scheduled to start tennis lessons next week.

    So the only thing I still suck on is the clean house part. And let me tell you, so far that is a MASSIVE failure.

    So I did not even almost keep my New Year's Resolution, which was to keep to a schedule of reading, writing, music, and movies every day. In fact, I never even tried to follow my schedule...

    But I will amend my resolution to something that I need to do: I will get a 170 or above on the LSAT.

    UPDATE:

    I've applied to all six of my targeted grad schools, so it's now in their hands to realize me for the completely fabulous genius I am, and invite me for an interview. And I just started tennis lessons today. Yay progress

    I didn't to too shabby last year. The weight has been slow, but over the past two years, I've lost 30 lbs.

    #1: Lose at least 10 more lbs.

    I have for the last 3 years vowed to not get any moving vehicle tickets (I mentioned moving, because this excludes meter-maid bullshit) which I have accomplished.

    #2: Continue to not get any tickets, or at least get caught.

    I managed to finish paying off a bad RC Willey account, so....

    #3: Improve credit score or pay off shadow debts
    #4: Work on toning and strengthening my legs.
    #5: Buy a Passport for future use
    #6: Masturbate more
    #7: Get an internship or volunteer gig
    #8: Watch Berlin Alexanderplatz
    #9: Leave the state more than 4 times, even if it's to Bendover
    #10: Practise more patience (i.e. for kid, partner, fucking stupid drivers, fucking stupid Mormons, and fucking stupid Ex-husband). I just need to breathe more!

    Alright I'll play.

    1. I didn't have sex in 2011. That wasn't a resolution from last year, just... yeah. I'd be alright with breaking that cycle. Regularly.
    2. Eat virtually no unnecessarily sweet desserts. I was already doing pretty well with this in 2011 but it has carried over so eh. I didn't eat a lot of sugar as a kid and realized it was really making me feel like shit when I'd eat ridiculously sweet crap.
    3. Buy a home or at the very least seriously look into home ownership. I'm finally moving to a city where I'm guaranteed some job stability and it'll be a place that I can call my hometown. It would be nice if I could actually make an investment in a place in that city to truly call mine.
    4. Get an American Express card. I haven't owned a credit card over some bullshit fear that I'm more impulsive than I actually am. See resolution 1 and how that changed the opinion of myself. My credit is pretty great for someone my age just because of paying other bills on time, etc. but I think I have enough maturity to appropriately maintain and build it up even further.
    5. With ensuing stability, regain social life. Pretty self-explanatory.

    Before and after pic please???

    My resolution was to make REALISTIC time approximations for my daily schedule. I cant count how many times i've said, "Yeah i'll be there in 10 minutes" and show up 20-30 minutes late.

    this has been a lot easier than i thought it would. since this post, i've had two iced-teas, a half a glass of champagne on NYE, a glass of wine a few days later when my friend's house was robbed, and a few shots of jager. not perfect, but still a reduction of intake.

    also westy, i hope you're still not smoking! going from 30 a day to hardly anything is quite a feat!

    and courtney, i LOVED tennis lessons as a kid. rick and i played a few times; it'd totally play with you!

    zack, good luck getting laid

    I'm moving along on these. I have now been invited to three interviews, and the probability that I will be admitted into at least school is now 99%, so that's nice. Assuming I don't majorly fuck up all three interviews.

    I'm in my third week of tennis classes. I can now do backhand!

    I'm still sucking on the running.

    I'm still sucking on the clean house. But I did go to Target the other night and buy a ton of Mrs. Meyers nice smelling cleaning supplies, which is supposed to motivate me.

    I have now read three books in 2012, so I'm ahead of schedule there. The last, Lady Chatterley's Lover, was horrendous and I do not recommend it. Working on Pnin now for the board book club.
