I also stay away from New Year's resolutions, and so avoid frustration at not fulfilling them. I spent New Year's Eve alone with my girlfriend at home, with a nice dinner and good wine. Now we have to go to a wake (my brother-in-law's father-in-law passed away). Such is life. But anyway, |
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL READLIT AND THEIR FAMILIES!!!!!
: I don't make New Year's resolutions. Both in my
: profession and in my life, I find that no one can keep
: Unless of course if they really and truly want to do
: what they have resolved to do, in which case they
: don't need a resolution! :^)
: But anyway,
: HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

: I will probably ring in the new year sound asleep as

: they're home from school and are exhausted from
: breaking up fights, cooking, doing laundry, picking up
: messes, etc.
: Aside from the usual weight and exercise resolutions,
: I've resolved for 2012 to read more books than I buy
: each month and to reduce the size of my collection by
: the end of the year. In 2011 I read 124 physical books
: (plus 12 e-books), sold several bags of books, and my
: shelves are more crowded than ever, so there's no
: telling how many I bought or acquired as gifts or
: review copies. This year I plan to track it and not
: allow myself to set foot in a bookstore if my numbers
: aren't favorable.
: Happy 2012 everyone!
