Happy New Year, Resolutions

Oh, wow. Look at this. The new year is a few minutes away and we’re all busy and shit preparing for it. But I’m taking a break from the revelries to take the time and greet you all a happy new year!

I’m curious. Do you still make new year’s resolutions? I, for one, stopped making them years ago because, well, who the heck was able to keep even one? Like me, for the last few years my one resolution was “I will exercise more regularly and lose weight.” By January 2, I’d be lying face down on the floor, wheezing from the fifth push-up and saying “Fuck it, I give up!”

This year I decided to make things a bit easier for me. I’ll be  making new year’s resolutions I can keep. Instead of beating myself up silly for broken promises, I’ll be able to pat myself on the back for a job well done.

So my resolutions for 2009 would be:

  • I would quit smoking – heh. This one’s easy. I don’t smoke. DONE.
  • Do something about my alcohol problem – I don’t have a problem with alcohol. Alcohol as a problem with me. DONE.
  • Stop playing DOTA – I don’t play DOTA. DONE.
  • I’ll stop staying up late to watch Pinoy scandals on various sites – I’ll stay up late to watch non-Pinoy scandals on various sites. DONE.
  • I’ll spend less time online – Ah, a tricky one. I’ll try to spend one minute less online everyday. DONE, technically.

So anyway guys, 2008 was a really crazy ride and I sure am glad I had you people around for the ride. The 2008 recap will come next post, but right now, I’ll greet you all a Happy New Year!

So sez ABBA!

I, uh, WHAT?

Anyway, what are your New Year’s Resolutions?


  1. Ummm… have better time management skills?

    I happen to lazy around whenever my laptop is on. Hope I'll be successful with this one since my new job is teh shitzeriaz.

  4. LOL I stopped making new year's resolutions around that time I realized Supersize Me! had a better chance of making me stop eat fast food than a whole new year.

    But….!! I will not give up! Losing weight is STILL a new year's resolution!!

      Yeah! I need to lose weight! Seriously! My cousin's thinking of making his door bigger so I can fit in his house!

  5. I resolve to not stick forks into power outlets again.

  6. Wow, you're done with your resolutions already. πŸ˜›

    I focus more on goals rather than resolutions, kind of like to-do lists since I work better with that. πŸ˜€ I did, however, make some resolutions for this year, though they're kind of a given already because I've been trying to do those things even before the year ended.

    Happy New Year, Ade!

  7. Made a pseudo-new year's reso list the other. Hopefully, I'll be able to live up to it this year.

  8. The ABBA made my year, it makes me want to grab someone's hand and force that person to walk with me into the sunset.

    Happy new year! :]

  9. Hahahaha. I always list down that exercise thing. Jogging. But waking up early for it stops me from keeping that resolution. Haha.

    *slow clap*

    Seems you’re having a successful year so far, technically.

    I still make resolutions. I don’t manage to do them all but I surprise myself with the number I do get done. I write them down then I more or less ‘forget them’ (I leave it to my subconscious). Worked better for me so far since I have an opossum response (pressure results in me not moving).

    I don’t share most of my resolutions. Cause sharing = pressure -> me not moving.

    Anyway, Happy New Year Ade! Sorry for rambling. May I be as successful as you were with your resolutions. πŸ™‚
