five new years resolutions, elaborated

New Years 20061. Write Rough Draft of Novel. By rough draft, that’s exactly what I mean, all out there, but not edited or fretted over. Get the guts out. And yeah, I kinda know what some of it is that wants to be born, but don’t know what all of it is or where it’s going thank god. Oh, and this one also involves sending out a few pieces and letting them go.

2. This one is personal, and I’ll keep it to myself.

3. Be Healthier. Ah health, such an interpretable one. Since it is such, this makes the deal a little more flexible and amendable, and thus less easy to break. But in general, some of my ideas are: eat more greens; write every morning when I get up, even if I get up early; try to get some exercise, go on walks with friends (sb promised to show me some of the Chicago neighborhoods); drink less alcohol and that includes wine-night; regulate my sleep schedule better; laugh more often, in fact fit it in; do more drawing; make out with a few random strangers; find a couple of new projects and actually do them.

4. Be More Self-Sufficient. This means finding a job away from the Art Institute that actually pays me a living wage for something I’m good at. Less loans, more work. Make sandwiches to bring for lunch at school and no more going out for lunch downtown.

Nat With Me on New Years 20065. Continue Emitting, and Learning to Emit, Positive Rays. I like to think I help others, give whatever it is I can give, help people feel good about themselves, never tear anyone down. I think I’m pretty honest and have integrity and always search for what I can say to society as well as my self to make everything a little better. And so I resolve to continue learning how to do so: how to be more generous, less lazy, less self-centered, more accepting of radical difference, more proactive, less whiny, more forthright, and so forth.
shit. i guess they were made to be broken?
