So, it’s 1/1/10 already. That kind of caught me unawares. I was planning on buckling down in 2010 (or o-10 as I keep calling it in my head). In January I was going to not drink for the whole month and also not buy anything unnecessary. Well, it’s only 6:36PM, and I’ve already spent $192. We had lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings, bought some “essentials” at Target (groceries and toilet paper and plastic totes, etc.), headlights for the car, 2010 calendars, etc. Oh yeah, and at lunch I had a Blue Moon. And, I’m currently drinking a grapefruit juice and vodka.
The problem, you see, is that I hadn’t realized that the new year started on a FRIDAY! One cannot stop drinking and consuming at the beginning of the weekend. It’s just wrong. I’m still considering starting the buckling down on Monday. We’ll see. My level of commitment is already pretty weak. But, maybe getting back into the normal routine of work will get me out of my lazy funk, and I’ll feel more inclined to set SMART goals with actually an intent to reach them.
I’m not quite sure why I’m starting this blog. I like to write, so that’s one reason, I guess. Not so sure if anyone really likes to read what I write. But, I guess that’s the beauty of the internet – if you don’t want to read something you don’t have to. My blog can thrive in oblivion, whilst giving me an outlet for my non-earth-shattering thoughts. It’s a win-win. Or something.
