Looking back, 2009 was probably one of the worst years of my life. But I suppose it wasn’t all bad. I managed not to get arrested, get knocked up, or lose my job. So to be fair, it wasn’t a major disaster.
I’m hoping that 2010 will be a great year though. I don’t want to sound selfish, but I really feel like I deserve some happiness. I’ve been so unhappy for so long. I want something good to happen. But I know for something good to happen, I have to make some changes.
Here are my New Years Resolutions for 2010:
Lose 20 pounds (Sadly, a lot of you informed me a while back that there was NO magic body fat eraser. So, this means I will be making changes to my diet and establishing an exercise routine, even if it means walking up and down my apartment stairs 100 times a day).
Find happiness in my career (I am no longer happy in my current position. Unfortunately, this means I will have to find a new job or simply quit my job and find another way to supplement my income, such as marrying James Franco or winning the lottery).
Make new friends (but keep the old).
Learn how to put on makeup (seriously).
Clean out my junk (I have boxes and piles of stuff that I need to organize or throw away).
Be a good shopaholic (I will only buy clothes/shoes/accessories/handbags/jewelry that I will wear often and that is a decent bargain)
Practice optimism (Part of becoming happy is pretending you are happy until you really are happy. Not in the disillusioned kind of way, but I want to see the good out of the bad at least. I really need to work on that. I tend to make a tragedy out of something that is simply dismal).
Have shiny, soft hair that bounces when I walk (not sure how the hell that is going to happen, but I will try dammit!)
Gain more confidence (I currently hate myself so I’m always surprised when someone else likes me).
Save up money for cool things (fancy phone, new laptop, car, etc.)
Get my facebook back! (*sobbing*)
Happy New Year! What are your resolutions?
