To bring in the new year, like most people, I’m going to make a few changes:
Organization – I’m a packrat, and have always been. It’s time to get rid of EVERYTHING. I have boxes and boxes of crap in my place, that stays in said boxes, as I move from place to place. I attribute memories to the most ridiculous, little, useless things. No more.
Budgeting – I’m good at making budgets for myself, (as I really need them), but I’m slow to stick to them over the long haul. At present, I’m living a bit beyond my means, digging a deeper hole, month after month.
AND NOW FOR THE JUICY STUFF!
Relationship-wise, I quite possibly had the worst 2005 ever. Far too many things went wrong, as I had very little control. As a result of that year, in 2006, I went on “vacation”, so to speak, and distanced myself from any possibility of repeat performances.
In this year of ours, 2007, I tried something else. I made an attempt to, quite honestly, go against my nature. I shot from the hip, pretended not to know when to fold’em, and let the chips fall where ever they wished. The end result? I was bitched twice. And it was so much fun! And so funny! Everything that happened to me, everything I “recieved” was the same. Meaning, I achieved the same end under this experimental way of acting.
The experiment was worthless. All it did for me was cause me stress. So, it’s over. In ’08, I’m taking it back to my tried and true methods.
“Love me two times, I’m going away!”, was sung by The Doors back in what – ’71? I’m bringing it back, with but a minor alteration. When I come back, I’ll be wearing my favorite, old trustworthy shoes – the most comfortable shoes I own.
Here’s to a truly HAPPY NEW YEAR!
