Posts Tagged ‘new year’s resolutions’

As you may or may not have noticed, I haven’t been blogging very much lately.  There are two reasons for this.  One (1): I haven’t been baking as much, hence no baking posts.  Two (2): I haven’t been complaining as much, hence no rants and raves.  As a sort of pre-New Year’s resolution, I’ve been trying to be a better human being and to not complain about every little thing.  At least not publicly.

As a result, my posts have become few and far between, and will most likely cross over into the realm of the mundane.  Which brings me to today’s topic: My 2013 New Year’s Resolutions.  Usually, I don’t make resolutions because I think they’re stupid never followed through on them.  But, after dodging that huge bullet with the whole 2012 Apocolypse thing, I figured I’d give it a shot.  Why stop at complaining?  There must be other ways I can improve myself, right?  So, here we go:

2013 Goals

1.  Secure a full-time job.
2.  Stop cutting corners as they relate to food.  Spend more time on preparation to enjoy a more satisfying (or cost effective) end product.
            2a. Use our teapot instead of the microwave for making tea.
            2b. Peel and cut whole carrots instead of buying baby carrots for lunch.
            2c. Shred blocks of cheddar cheese instead of buying pre-shredded taco cheese.
3.  Buy at least one new pair of jeans.
4.  Begin a more comprehensive skin care regimen with the inclusion of some sort of pre-wrinkle or wrinkle-prevention cream.
5.  Continue to complain less.

I think that’s pretty much it.  Don’t want to get too crazy and overburden myself with too many resolutions.  But, I think if I accomplish these small things, I’ll be in good shape by next year.
