I’ve been asked several times in the past couple weeks what my New Year’s resolutions were. Truth be told, I didn’t have any. My response was I’d have to get back to you because I don’t have any yet. Well as of today, you’re in luck because I finally decided to put together a list of resolutions for 2013. I tried to make it a mix between totally feasible to slightly more difficult to achieve because I like variety.
1. Less beer, more scotch
Ideally I’d like to cut back drinking in general to a couple times a month, but realistically, I’ll probably continue to drink weekly. Scotch was my grandfather’s drink of choice back in his drinking days and it’s about time I come to appreciate it. Also, beer just weighs me down and I drink it too fast. I’m thinking Macallan will be my Scotch of choice.
2. More scratch tickets (~5% of weekly income)
Gotta diversify my income somehow. Plus, someone’s gotta pay the bills for TBSE.
3. Weekly blog posts
Writing blog posts requires some thought and creativity so it helps me stay sharp.
4. Partake in Meaty Mondays (double serving to meat to counteract the Meatless Monday movement)
More of a dig at my vegetarian friends, but I gotta eat a lot of protein if I wanna get swole.
5. Get swole
Why wouldn’t I want to get swole?
6. Complete an entire game of Risk
7. Handwrite letters to people
I’ve got stamps and envelopes… just no paper. Maybe I’ll write letters on weird things like napkins, paper towels, whatever I can scrounge up and send them out. Fun fact: you can mail a Kraft Single with a stamp and address on it.
8. Eat breakfast every morning
Some would say it’s the most important meal of the day. It’s time I gave it a shot.
9. Pet a jungle cat
I stole this resolution from someone else, but it would probably be awesome so it’s making my list as well.
10. Take a spontaneous flight at the airport
Something I’ve always thought about doing but haven’t actually done. Considering I live 15 minutes from the airport, there’s no reason not to.
11. Attend music festival
Having been to JazzFest in 2011 and Firefly in 2012, I’d like to keep it going as an annual thing.
12. Play on a blob
Not sure how I’ve lived to be 25 and haven’t played on a blob yet.
13. Lose 20 lbs
Between eating breakfast and getting swole, I think 20 lbs is doable. Plus I needed a generic resolution to throw on the list.
