Sleepwalking my way through life: Resolute Urgency of 07



Resolute Urgency of 07

I suppose I should jump on the bandwagon here and welcome in 2007 with a dedicated post to celebrate the New Year. But I find myself wondering; what makes this year so different from last year? All my major changes happened in 06 (loss of security, gaining of maturity – ah, it’s fun to rhyme) so what’s left for 07? What will stop it from being a boring year?

Ah, I have a plan this year.

That is correct; for the first time in X years, I have compiled some New Years Resolutions. Of course I do this every year in an attempt to make myself feel better and not lazy, but this will be the first year that I actually take the time and effort to write them down for all to see.

1. Make more of an effort at university. (Yes, an obvious one, but it has to be noted nonetheless).
2. Get in shape. (Once again, another obvious one).
3. Write uncensored in a personal diary. (So I don’t end up going crazy).
4. Make an effort to write professionally.
5. Make more of an effort to maintain friendships.

Those five listed are my major ones; the ones that, since I have now written them down for the world to see, I have to fulfil. There are also a few dozen “unofficial” resolutions, including “blog more” and “reach my eighteenth birthday” (yes the latter was put in so I could proclaim that I had fulfilled one of my resolutions within thirteen days of making it).

And yes, the latter was also to bring up the fact that my eighteenth birthday is in a mere eleven days. Soon I’ll be able to do everything that I’ve already been doing – namely getting drunk – except legally. To be honest I can’t think of any other good reason to be eighteen; voting? Who needs it? At last I can leave the dreaded limbo that is seventeen years and welcome, with open arms, the warm comforting drunken days of eighteen.

2006 was an exciting year, to say the least, and I wonder how 2007 will turn out.
