Resolution Time AGAIN??? !!!!!!
Well, I lost 10 lbs last year, that's good.
Other than that, things didn't go very well with my New Year's Resolutions.
I've decided to reflect on what's important to me...
1. I'm starting to write more about other things, chiefly music. I've got some research projects on the back burner. I lost the tape recorder I was going to use for interviews, but it won't take much to buy another. My plan is to get interviews with some key people and be published in music journals--perhaps get my own column writing reviews.
2. Learn to play guitar left handed because I'm still having too many problems after shoulder surgery to the right side to strum well.
3. Set some of my poems to music. Yes, I write poetry. I used to a long time ago, and now I've decided they might be good for song lyrics.
4. After that I will start a band. ;) World domination is just around the corner. I'm kidding, people--about world domination anyway.
5. Keep going to church. No matter what. I will leave the Bible in a year and the other loftier goals to those more spiritual. This is where I am now and I accept that about my spiritual life.
6. Lose weight. I know, everyone says that for the new year, but now I'm really cutting back. 10 lbs is a good start. I can't rely on exercise at all. After a head injury which also messed up my neck, a car accident which messed up my next even worse, several left ankle sprains, and shoulder surgery exercise is basically unreliable.
7. Stop listening to love advice. It's all basically crap really. If people don't like me for who I am, I will show them the door. End of story. I'd heard from people that I didn't have someone in my life because I was too busy with music things and if I just rfocused on finding a relationship, that I would. That's not what happened. The last advice I ever took on this matter came from my cousin who married at 38. "It will happen when it happens." Amen, cousin, amen.
8. I'm not going to take bad dates with people I hope I might like. I am not dating anyone for now, so there is nothing to write about on that front. Right now, I'm more absorbed in music. Particularly Post-punk from 1978-1984--especially Echo & the Bunnymen. It almost seems that my affections are better spent on them. Also, it's really lovely if you think Christians shouldn't listen to "that kind of music". If you like Third Day or whatever Christian band is out right now...good for you. If you think that listening to Christian music is going to help me find a Christian boyfriend (Marky Mark), please know that I used to DJ a Christian radio show and I didn't have a boyfriend then either.

So, what are some of yours?
