I’m not going to be so high-and-mighty as to say that I don’t make New Year’s resolutions. It’s just natural. We see the coming year as a clean slate, and we look back on all the crap we didn’t (or did) do last year and decide to clean up our act. I’m going back on my diet. I’m going to be a better chairman of the Education Committee at church. I’m going to clean up the back bedroom. Blah. Blah. Blah. These are all things I should have been doing all along, but here’s a chance to change my
lazywicked ways. I’m not saying that I’ll do any better in 2008 that I did in 2007, but why not give it a try?
The new year is also a good time to start new projects. One thing that I’d like to give a go is something similar to the Thing A Week that Jonathan Coulton did where he wrote, recorded and published a song each week for a year. Mine’s totally different, because A) I’m going to post mine on Saturday night instead of Friday and B) I’m not Jonathan Coulton.
I’m already in the hole for this year, as the first Saturday is only a couple of days away, and I have’nt written a thing. (HINT: Song subject suggestions are always welcome.)
So, will I accomplish all my goals? Will 2008 turn out to be a banner year?
What am I? Psychic?
