i actually thought i might try having new years’ resolutions again.
but then i realized that “taking a year-long vow of silence” and “do not spend any more money on nonsense” probably wouldn’t last long. nor would “only wear PJs”…..
i could see that i would need to modify my ambitions to withstand the assault of the real world. maybe it could be:
“do not talk unnecessarily, especially to people who annoy me”
“do not buy anything except the bare essentials – like books and alcohol” and
“only wear comfortable clothes that could easily be mistaken for PJs”
…. maybe then i would have a chance. i mean, it just seemed like life was getting to be too short to waste on extra stuff like small talk and trendy styles.
