This morning, my friend Eric asked me if I have a news years resolution. (Actually someone asked me for the first time the other night at a New Year’s Eve party, but he didn’t stick around to hear my answer when I told him that we had met before but he didn’t remember because he had been really drunk at the time).
Well, at first I thought I didn’t have a news years resolution… I kind of never really do.
But then I actually thought about, and realized that yes, I do have one.
That being said, I am always quietly setting goals to better myself and the way I interact with the world, and this is different only in that I am actually talking about it.
The other day, while I was making a parody collage of a Time Magazine cover for my own enjoyment, I had a realization of all the useful things I could be doing to better my life during that time, instead of pasting an American Spirit cigarette into Abraham Lincoln’s mouth.
So I decided to finish the collage, while resolving to start making better use of my time: to use my time pursuing things that will make my life more fulfilling, and inevitably seek to spread happiness to humanity (i.e. start with some volunteering, among other things).
Honestly, I’m probably still going to collage Time Magazine covers for my own enjoyment… Just not at 4:30 AM when the obvious choice is to go to sleep.
So what’s your New year’s resolution? What’s the goal you just happened to make at the turn of the year?
