What Are Your New Year’s Resolutions?

I’m still contemplating my New Year’s resolutions. I could make a list and make it boring, the theme being fix all the stuff I could do better. You know, like save more, scrub the toilet with greater vigor, and practice yoga daily. Or I could focus on all the dreams I’d like to accomplish — finishing my novel, traveling to Thailand, winning the lottery. Some people keep it simple with one resolution, and some people think the whole idea of resolutions is ridiculous. So, are you coming up with resolutions for 2011? What are they?

What’s Your Theme For 2011?

I’m not sure if I’m going to make resolutions this year. I mean, I’m not anti-resolutions. I make them every year, and sometimes I even keep them. There were a few this year I did OK on. I didn’t really get going on maintaining an exercise regimen until the second half of the year, but since about August (OK, fine, so maybe that isn’t exactly half the year, but it’s close!), I’ve been working out at least four times a week. And I kept my resolution to call my long-distance friends and family more (usually, that’s meant two or three calls a week, which is pretty good for someone who hates the phone). I’ve read more books — especially in the last couple of months. And I definitely did a lot more cooking this year. So, overall, I feel pretty good about things. Still, this year instead of resolutions, I’m thinking of making a theme for the new year. Keep reading »

7 Types Of Guys To Date In 2011

Well, 2011 is almost upon us. After a year of sluttin’ it up and having a grand ol’ time doing it, I feel very ready to meet someone special. A boyfriend, a partner-in-crime, if you will. With that in mind, I’ve already made some dating resolutions for the upcoming year, and have noted the 10 types of guys I plan to avoid now that I’m looking for a relationship with some depth, not to mention an exchange of last names. Having been actively online dating for the last year, I have definitely “put myself out there,” to use the annoying phrase lobbed around by advice-filled smug monogamists, but I also think I need to be more open-minded about WHO to date. Here are the 7 types of guys to date in 2011. Keep reading »

Mind Of Man: New Year’s Resolutions Are For Suckers

The New Year always makes me melancholy. If New York had moors, I’d spend the New Year sulking around the fog in a billowy shirt with a raven on my shoulder. While everyone else says “hello” to the next 12 months, I usually spend this time of year reflecting on the past 12 months. I can’t predict what tomorrow will bring, but I know what yesterday wrought. New Year’s is a time of accounting for one’s actions instead of making odds and betting on what might be. While everyone is gorging on the cake of future opportunity, I’m picking over the leftovers of my decisions. Because, like history, stupidity repeats itself. My funky mood is practical, too. Fate is a sniper, and those people who whoop and holler at the strike of midnight make easy targets. I keep my head down. Keep reading »
