:: new year's resolutions, my favorite ::

That's not sarcasm, people. I LOVE making new year's resolutions. The whole year, clean and unblemished, stretching out before me. And I can make it the year I don't do anything sucky! Or I can try my hardest to be less sucky than the year before. There, that sounds more reasonable.

I feel like I'm fairly self aware, and I also have many folks around me who gently point out my flaws, so I have a ton of stuff to choose from. A biggie--giving up caffeine--I took care of in the fall. (Side note: it was HELL, I will never do crack if caffeine withdrawal is even a fraction of what kicking real drugs is like).

So, in no particular order:

-Keep an emergency $100 in apartment at all times (I never carry cash...and this has previously caused issues)

-Keep my gas tank half full at all times (I loathe getting gas...and this has previously caused issues)

-Lose 12 lbs and hold steady

-Up my rainy day fund to where it was in 2010

-Zero out my credit card

-Strive to be on time for scheduled appointments

-Do not buy any more black or gray dresses

-Do not buy any drugstore brand toiletries (cleanser, lotion, etc.)

Ok, that's enough for now. I'm tired just looking at it. But excited! Three cheers for 2014!
