Well, here we go again…

Dear 2011,

Let’s be kind to each other, shall we? 2010 was average enough, but we don’t need another 2009.

So let’s make a deal.

You will provide me with 365 days, each day approximately 24 hours in length. These days will be blank slates with each an opportunity to get things right.

In turn, I will provide you with 365 attempts at not sucking at life. This includes but is not limited to:

  • keeping my mind focused on whatever task is at hand, regardless of how alluring drawing/writing/StumbleUpon/Wordpress/screwing around on the internet in general is.
  • trying not to lose my shit when it comes to anxiety-provoking social interactions.
  • mastering the art of self-deprivation to promote self-betterment.
  • attempts to dispel anger in more constructive ways.
  • trying to be kinder to everyone, even people who can’t seem to walk down a sidewalk properly.
  • appreciating the fact that I have control over my life (note: this does not exempt me from bitching about stuff).


So yeah. Take that, fate, I’m going to kick your ass.


Anyway, life is never complete without a year-end survey. Onward!
