Resolution #4: Keep a tally of how many times I want to freaking kill myself this year.

*amps up the Fall Out Boy*

New Year's Resolutions are best in medias res, donchaknow?

Mine are pretty dull all around, but I figure I'll post them for posterity so I can look back on them whenever I feel like adding another hash mark to #4.

#1: Keep to a schedule. This applies to pretty much everything. Being in a bad mood is no excuse to blow off exercising for a day, since that only makes it excusable in the future. Chances are, doing something other than sulking and stagnating will make you feel better for actual doing something productive.

#2 Write. Another thing moodiness should not excuse. I'd like to shoot for an average of a thousand words a day.

#3 Stop picking at my face. I know I'm not the only person over twenty who finds her pores sources of endless entertainment, but dude. Enough is enough. Exfoliate and walk away from the mirror, kthx.

#5 Eat with more moderation. This is gonna be fun. If it's all about the vital stats, I sound way sexier on the Internet than I actually am. I don't think I look like the kind of person who can pound down as much food as I can, but that's not something I've ever gone out of my way to publicize either. For quite a while, my eating habits have essentially been permutations of bingeing and fasting as opposed to merging them into something a little more suitable. I've never quite gotten it through my head that being hungry doesn't mean I should stuff my face with everything in the universe and then never eat again. Lately, I've been better about this--was starving the other night, so I had hummus and carrots and one piece of leftover Christmas candy rather than choking down all the chocolate at once. I just need to keep doing it.

#6 Be less of a jerk. I'm not actually a jerk, but to a lot of people I can read as cold when I'm actually just self-conscious. I've gotten better about this too, but I'd still like to be able to come out of my shell with more ease and less trepidations about seeming fake.

#7 Stock up on big-girl panties. Seriously weigh the options of my future and make decisions instead of procrastinating and prevaricating. This entails sending out resumes ASAP, learning as much as I can from my job before I move on to something else, tracking possible grad schools for future reference, building credit, cleaning out my car, learning more about properly filing taxes, etc.
