New Year’s Resolutions

Here are my New Year’s Resolutions…

  1. Make sure my Pings are uploaded early. Less of these 8am writings. Very, very important.
  2. Read more. I read a fair amount, but I have hundreds of books that I’ve bought I can’t wait to read.
  3. Exercise. Is any list of resolutions complete without this? Besides, I have a gym membership… might as well get my money’s worth.
  4. Become vegetarian. Oh wait… I already did that.
  5. Pour some sugar on me. More sweet, less bitter.
  6. Learn. It’s hard to stay motivated to keep learning when you’re out of school, but if reading Upski’s taught me anything, life is a class that’s always in session.
  7. Enjoy life.

I resolve to get a life, and then enjoy it.

I make the same resolution every year:

I resolve not to make any resolutions.

Hey Ryan, I got one for you. Update your personal page at least once a year, and keep to your publically announced update deadlines. At least get rid of all of the 404's and blank pages. :-)

My main new year's resolution is to return my library books on time, so I don't go bankrupt from all of these overdue fines.

Terry -- Agreed. But being lazy is the theme of the site, right? ;)

Ryan--I'd think you're too busy being Laze-y to be lazy.

OK, I resolve to stop making jokes like that.

I never make resolutions since I am always challenging myself everyday. Ryan I feel you on the Upski comment, thats how I live my life.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
