New Year’s Resolutions

I kind of have a love/hate relationships with New Year’s Resolutions.

Okay, okay, I admit. This is by no means unique to me. Most of us have a chip on our shoulders over all of the New Year’s Resolutions we’ve broken in under a week. There’s such promise of new beginnings, but then there’s a New Year’s party when you want to write and you promised to eat clean but there’s leftover Christmas shopping, and before you get back to school or work you’re just plain bitter about the whole concept.

Sound familiar? Thought so.

I have another thing to admit: I’m kind of sort of maybe obsessed with Lauren Conrad’s blog. I know, I know, as a writer, reality tv and its stars should be all sorts of offensive, yadda yadda, blah blah blah, I’m a television junkie, so sue me.

Last week, while in a state of disillusion over the whole resolution prospect, I saw something on Lauren’s blog that stuck with me long enough to warrant a blog post: a fill-in-the-blanks resolutions list, not consisting of any grandiose, impossible declarations. I figured I’d give it a try, so without further delay, here are my (very, very belated) New Year’s Resolutions, courtesy of
