    That's the best resolution I've heard in years.

    It will be in a boomerang fashion: Some people will catch me, others might get hit in the head, or I might just fly by unnoticed.

    How is everyone doing? I've been failing at everything except for miles, which I am kicking ass at.

    I'm eating well and continuing with my exercise, also making an effort to drink more water.
    I'm enjoying doing what I want without worrying what everyone thinks and it's making me very happy.
    I am making time for the people that really count in my life, and trying to make an effort to see those people more often.

    I have been truly thankful and grateful for my health, my family and friends and all the fun things I can do in my life.

    Mine are a work in progress: I've been hustling my bustle re: classwork, I'm allocating my tax return to a tattoo, and starting in March I will have $500 more/month that I am going to be putting in savings (except for a little bit to buy a new laptop since I killed my old one).

    I don't think I posted my resolutions, so here's my thing:

    Mantra: "Make it count"
    -Pay more attention to my body's needs to achieve a healthy weight and sleep schedule.
    -Quit being such a shitty deadbeat aunt to the kids in my life.
    -Fill my heart with good things; art, dates and travel so as to not be a crotchety old drunk lady.
    -Turn my financial situation around. Preferably not wanting to shoot myself when I think about debt and repo.
    -Fix my bike and drive less.

    Since Jan. 1:
    I don't rush things, I think about it, and I'm much more careful with my words and actions, to make my connections count. Seems to be working.
    -Cut out salt, and I'm trying, with not much success to sleep better. I have a new alarm clock, and a new goal to at least be in bed an hour before I plan to sleep, and at least get out of the bed and sleep somewhere else if I must, after the first snooze. Also lost somewhere around 6 lbs since Sundance and keeping it off.
    -I bought valentines cards yesterday to send to the little shits, and had a lengthy text conversation with my 11 year old niece about Justin Timberlake.
    -I am taking myself to an art date this Friday, and planning a girls night in next Friday. Debating Sasquatch in addition to Coachella, since Spain is nothing but a pipe dream.
    -I had an appointment with the school's financial advisor. How does one refinance a car?
    -I found my bike.

    My resolutions are all in progress. They're not things that were meant to be done in a month though. I'm working hard at bettering myself and I'm happy with the progress so far. At the very least, I am embracing challenges instead of shying away from them.

    Find other words to replace FUCK (and its relatives) in daily conversation/correspondance.
    less booze: check
    smarter vocab: check
    less meat: uh, fail.

    2. Actually made significant progress here
    3. Made some progress here and also don't care as much

    Some mid year resolutions:

    1. Finish reading Ulysses, Gravity's Rainbow, and Wind-Up Bird Chroncile
    2. Finish listening to the entire Bob Dylan and Neil Young catalogs
    3. Start playing music again
    4. Become a decent cook

    I have taken better care of myself, lost 7 pounds by eating less and cutting back on alcohol, sugar and other fattening stuff.
    I have really enjoyed putting my own needs first for a change. I'm learning how to say no when I don't really want to do something. That one is tough but I'm getting better.
    I cut off contact with someone that I was in a toxic friendship with, that I still feel sad about, but I had to do it.
    My new Spanish teacher is much more relaxed than my first but I need to keep working on my conversational skills. That's my weakest area.
    I feel really happy these days and I am grateful.

    Guess I'm doing OK at the half-year mark.

    I purposely chose not to make any resolutions this year, so I'm doing pretty damn good thus far.

    I decided I was going to work on my confidence and standing up for myself, it's been going very well. I have had some difficult conversations with people I care about that really helped the relationships, I have negotiated a better salary with another raise to come shortly, I have even returned food that was prepared wrong. I wish I had done this years ago.
