Remember how i said i love puns w/my name? You thought i was joking but i wasn't. I never joke, not about puns.
I am not above making resolutions. I say this because everyone seems to do this and I like to pretend I'm a non-conformist. But i see no problem in making goals for a new year, therefore i swallow my pride and here we go.
1- 2008 is the year I get serious about music writing. I have written down parts (for arrangements) that look like a first grader did it and forget about writing down the accompaniment. It takes me 3 years just to write one line. Anyway, so we have some software, a new computer, and a digital piano. No more excuses. It is go time.
2- Sean and I recently ate at a German restaurant at the request of my brother who's German. Just kidding, he went on a mission there. Anyway, we never eat German food but HOLY CRAP this food was a-mazing. It is another moment where I realize i don't have a clue about what i thought i liked and i need to branch out even more. So we resolve to eat at more ethnic restaurants. The more obscure the better. Who else would have a Tanzanian restaurant than NYC? We need to take advantage while we're here.
3- Get a haircut. Check! Did it already. And yes, this may be the only haircut of the year.
4- Be more social, or something. I am not the host-type. I'd rather sit back and chat with the funniest people and let other people entertain/serve themselves. This sounds like I'm a jerk. Maybe i am. But, now that i think about it, since i'm not the host-type, maybe i need to resolve to do better at getting myself invited to things. That way i can be more social without having to entertain people. So maybe another resolution should be...
5- Be cooler and funnier. Ha ha ha. oh man.. i'm sorry. I typed that as if it were possible.
6- Be less jerky and work on humility.
7- See more movies. I guess the problem here is not that i haven't seen enough, but not enough good ones are being made. i guess my resolution is contingent upon that. So i'll leave that resolution to the movie makers.
8- Cook more and be more adventurous in the kitchen. I swear if we have sausage and pasta one more night, so help me... Actually, sausage and pasta sounds really good right now...
That's about all i have for now and i don't want to start making up things that sound good but that i haven't given serious thought to like "eat better." I'm not sure i am ready to make that commitment. Although, to be honest, i eat pretty well already. I am very selective about my treats and sweets and can't have crap food like potato chips and whatnot anymore because it makes me ill. I could definitely eat more vegetables though.
Happy new year. What are some things you'd like to improve upon?
