Actually Exercise. This isn’t so much a New Year’s Resolution as a 2nd Semester Resolution. I guarantee it will not happen until at least a week into the semester, and I don’t really have an opportunity to do it here since I do not have free access to a nice gym.
Write creatively. Interestingly, I won’t have a choice here, as I’m taking Intro to Creative Writing. But a major part of the reason I’m taking the class is that hopefully it will inspire me to do more creative writing in my free time.
This is from December 31, 2011. Uh, it still pretty much applies. BUT! I did end up taking that creative writing class (though, as most of you know, it did not happen in the semester I originally planned), so I ended up writing a fair amount of poetry, a short story, and since the class I have written one poem that had nothing to do with getting my homework done. So: Exercise and continue writing creatively.
A few days after this I made a similar post where I was like “Oh! I’ve also been meaning to get a tattoo.” Again, still applies. I’ve been meaning to get a tattoo. For several years now.
Eventually, it was time to clock out and gather my stuff, which required walking back across Campus Martius. It’s beautiful out there this time of year. The ice rink was full of people.
As I approached the Compuware Building, I felt pretty good about myself. Here I was, with a legitamate job in a big city, walking into the front doors of this big imposing building after a hard day’s work. Its felt really great to work downtown, and I was thinking that I could get used to this.
Then the Hard Rock Cafe was playing “Karma Chameleon,” which completely ruined my reverie.
Facebook events should have a status between "Maybe" and "Going"
Something along the lines of “Probably Going.” Like, right now there’s an event that I wasn’t entirely sure I wanted to go to, and still needed to figure out rides. Now I’m super excited about it, but am only about 85% sure I can find a ride and go. So, that’s sure enough that I could just put “Going,” but if for some reason my plans fall through massively, I don’t want to disappoint people.
They could do something similar for the other end, “Probably Not Going,” for situations where you’re like “I’m pretty sure I can’t come but would really like to so I’m going to at least attempt to come.”
Did you really have to leave your apron on to go to the post office? Did you anticipate getting dirty while sending your packages, or do you just want to make sure as many people see you looking like an artist in public as possible?
