New Year's Resolutions November Update!

It's the most wonderful time of the year. At least it is one of the most busy times of the year.

This post comes almost a month late, and right before 2013 comes to a close, I find it appropriate (if tragically late) to update my New Year's Resolution.

I have stuck with this for almost a year! Unfortunately, as the year is coming to a close, it hasn't been a consistent ride.

But enough of that! Let's review my New Year's Resolutions for the month of November.

Resolution #1: Achieve my ideal weight.

It hasn't been that great of a month. At least what I can remember from this month (remember, I'm writing this a month too late). I have found difficulty finding, or better said making, time to exercise.

I usually start work at 9 AM and get off at 5 PM. By the time I'm off it's already dark, and I feel uneasy about going out and exercise. My neighborhood is not safe. If anything it is infamously unsafe.

Going out at that hour by yourself and for a long period of time is not only unwise, but borderline insanity.

Of course, I have the option of waking up early enough to do some exercise before going to work. I know that seems like a wise option. But I'm sleeping okay?! Enough said.

Resolution #2: Keep my room clean, year long.

There was a point around mid-November that I got tired of my messy room, and I said to myself "enough is enough!". I proposed that I'd spend at least 30 minutes cleaning my room, and be done with it for goodness sake.

Unfortunately, the time came to clean it, and I spent close to 20 minutes cleaning it. Being overwhelmingly happy about the progress I decided to stop.

Of course, the room wasn't completely unmessy at that time, and has remained so for the rest of the month.

Resolution #3: Update my blog regularly, minimum once a week.

Seriously? Whoever thought of that resolution! Turns out that updating your blog demands some serious work. Who knew?

Anyways, I am glad I made this resolution, in spite of the fact that I failed miserably for the month of November.

I am glad because this blog has been updated with more regularity than before, and that, my friends, is progress. Trying to remain positive here.

Well friends. It is dark outside. I'm almost ready for my New Year's party. The city lights are dimly shining outside my windows. It is time to go for now.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
