i need a resolution

Wednesday, December 3, 2008
up until last year, i didn't do the whole new year's resolution thing. last year i said i would have significantly less bum days in 2008. and i did. i looked a hot mess on comparativly fewer occassions than i did in previous years. granted circumstances played a role, like it's different when you live off campus versus in the dorm and you can't just go to your job or internship any kind of way. but still i put forth an effort on days i was not obligated. 

i have to figure out something for this year (2009). i don't wanna do a cliche thing like "lose weight". that's a given. 

maybe this year will be about doing "the goodest" or "the most good". when my brother was competing to be maryland's strongest man, i told him to "do the goodest". it wasn't about him doing HIS best. he had to do the best out of everyone out there. i dont know why parents tell kids to do their best. no, you need to do better than everyone else. it's a competition, ok? so maybe 2009 will be about doing my best and the best out of everyone else, too. and "the most good part" would be about giving back and charity and volunteering and all that noise.

That's the second post I've read today about giving back. That's a good one.

You could make a resolution to mentor or to do one volunteer project a month... something like that.

Ooh, mentoring is a good one T!

I keep saying that I'm going to be a "Big Sister" to someone, but never follow-through. Maybe this year will be different.

I also say that I'm going to get more organized, but I've come to terms that I will never be! LOL

I've realized that when you push yourself to be the best rather than to do your best, the fruits that you reap in the end can be so much more sweeter. so you go girl and be the goodest! LOL
