When I was a teenager I would treat resolutions like wishes. I'd make a resolution like, "I will kiss a girl", but then wouldn't do much about it, just sit around with my lips pursed waiting to be snogged. But it never happened. Of course, as I went to an all boy school I was sort of okay with this.
Then, as I got older and went to university, I'd mean to make a resolution, but then I'd start celebrating and soon the only resolution I'd be thinking was, "I will not drink so much the room starts spinning when I go to bed. I will not drink so much I need a bucket." That sort of thing. But usually by this point I was past saving anyway so I'd break my resolution within hours of the new year.
After that I pretty much gave up. I've meant to do it a few times but I'd procrastinate and wouldn't get around to it.
But this year will be different. I have decided to make a list of Bruce's Totally Doable New Years Resolutions. These will not suit everyone else (or possibly anyone else) so if you've come here for ideas, I'm sorry, you'll have to write your own. These ten resolutions were devised strictly with me in mind:
That should be enough to be getting on with.
HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYONE! Hope you all manage to get your little tykes to bed so you can enjoy seeing 2013 in without the smell of a dirty nappy or the whine of an overtired child to distract you.
Cheers, y'all. Catch up with you next year. xx
