Prompt for December 1 | Project Reverb

At the start: Where did you start 2013?  Give us some background on this year.

via Prompt for December 1 | Project Reverb.

I’m pretty sure I was here for New Year’s Eve last year. Alone, but ok with being alone.

Being alone isn’t a curse. It’s nice to have the quiet and make your own decisions about what you’re going to do each day and how you want to do it.

I seem to be finishing 2013 almost identically to 2012. I’m in a stalemate with myself.

Resolutions

New Year’s Resolutions for 2008

I promise to eat ice cream on New Year’s Eve, even if I have to do it all by myself.

I will continue to look at houses (occasionally, not obsessively) in the real estate flyers and buy lottery tickets about once a month or so.

I will try to actually sleep in the hours after my shift at work ends at midnight and the daylight cracks open the sky at dawn.

I will keep seeking out the finest fancy coffee in Ontario, no matter how much of it I have to drink along the way.

I will keep up with the routine for laundry, going to work and all that standard stuff.

I’m going to learn XHTML (at least more than I do now) and finish revamping my site, this year.

I won’t give up on finding a guy who appreciates some of the things I do: being reliable, a little romance, some old traditions and making new ones, intelligent conversation, art and being creative, smiling and the odd bit of sensual kinky sex.

I won’t pick up bugs or other really icky things that make me cringe.

I won’t make promises and commitments I can’t keep and I will try not to let anyone pressure me into making any such commitments. Not even myself.
