Brother, Can You Spare Some Change
I think it's fun to have something like the new year's resolution. It's kind of a get-out-of-jail-free card, much like the Catholics have every day. 'Sorry you didn't meet your goal of __________, give it another go' is the new 'say 5 rosaries and it'll be just fine'. It's a do-over, because don't we have enough shit to worry about and strive for already? Isn't there enough disappointment? I've been wanting to learn Spanish for, probably, 8 years now. It's my recurring resolution.
So, having said all that, I'm lining up to make some resolutions. I'm excited for this year and with everything up for grabs in all aspects of my life, it should be a good year for some much-needed change, and I don't mean the kind that jingles. I haven't exactly laid any plans out, but having a positive outlook on tomorrow is half the battle for me. Suffice to say, blogging is one of my pledges, and I'm excited to slowly reconnect with the friends I've made on here.
