Happy New Year! Try To Fail Less, OK?

I've never been one to make a new year's resolution.  It would be setting myself up for failure, and I don't need yet another reason to be depressed.  Plus, change is disturbing and hard.  Status quo for the win!

Still, this year I feel compelled to resolve some things.  So here is a list of things I resolve to do, along with the reasons I'll fail to accomplish these lofty goals. Hey, I'm just keeping it real.

1) Lose weight.

Ummmm.... have you tasted food?  It's delicious!

2) Drink less coffee.

It would be like Night Of The Living Dead, but with less brains and more yelling.

3) Stop swearing.

Hell, no.

4) Blog more frequently.

Hey, I've been doing fewer stupid things to write about. I'm not about to buck that trend.

5) Yell less.

NOW WHY WOULD I WANT TO DO THAT?!

So there you have it.  Five new year's resolution that I'll fail to accomplish.  Now THAT's a resolution I can keep!

Perfect. It looks very familiar ;) Listicles up in 13 minutes so don't forget to link this up ( don't worry about the button and stuff, come as you are...)

@Stasha - thanks :)

Ha! I loved that - "Have you tasted FOOD? It's delicious!"
For me with coffee - which I really do want to give up - don't know if I can but... - it actually makes me really bitchy and shouty, so when I quit it after the horrid withdrawal phase I don't shout half as much. In your case though I'd keep drinking it unapologetically! Happy 2012!

Love it. I gave up on making resolutions ages ago. They just piss me off. And I like to eat way too much.

AudreyN said...

Jen said...

Haha!! Perfect! I love how so many of us don't do resolutions :)
Happy New year to you!

Gia said...

Hahaha I feel like everyone picks the coffee one! Because honestly why would anyone give up the sweet nectar of the gods?!?

Angela@BeggingTheAnswer said...

@Ado - I've already resigned myself to the fact that I love coffee too much to really give it up. Oh well.

@Paul - thanks, you too!

@JDaniel4's Mom - thanks!

@Theresa - People ARE crazy. Especially me.

@Lizbeth - this is the first time in a LONG time that I've even contemplated making resolutions.

@AudreyN - I know :)

@Jen - you too!

@Gia - coffee IS the nextar of the gods, and I was silly to think I could give it up.

Ha! Unlike you I have totally kept my resolutions EVERY year. Last year I resolved not to have a resolution. This year I resolve to be slothful. I am totally kicking ass ALREADY!

Sara said...

Great list! A lot of those are on my list too!

Janie Jones said...

LOL! Now that's a list I'd love to fail at.

Joshua said...

And I'll be by now you've fucking failed them all. Me, too.

I think that your resolution should be to fail at this list . . . a total win win!
