It’s Not a Resolution Because I Said So.

I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions.

But I do make plans.

I have BIG fucking plans this year, kids. Big ones. Huge. Rock-my-world-massive freakin’ plans.

It’s going to take some time. And a whole lot of work. But in the end, I’m going to be more awesome and super proud of it.

10 Awesome Things I’m Going to do THIS Year.

Putting on the granny panties and the British accent(catch the reference and I’ll give you a cookie):

Number 1: Obviously will lose 20 lbs.

Number 2: Always put last night’s panties in the laundry basket. Finish master’s degree. Sure, it’s a useless degree when it comes down to my future career not being teaching…but it’s still a master’s degree. And I’d like it to be completed. (I mean really…it’s one silly little thesis. How hard can it be? I write for a living.)

Number 3: Will be published. Thanks to the wonderful folks at Life Well Blogged, this will happen in the near future.

Number 4: Will publish a book. Will write a book.

Number 5: Will self-publish the aforementioned book.

Number 6: Will get an amazing job. (I feel as though I should put this one a little higher on the list…but I mean…at least it’s on the list, right?)

Number 7: Crap! I still need 4 more things… Will take at least 3 internet vacations. Yes. That’s a good one. I like my internet vacations. Going off the grid. Maybe at least one will involve a beach. There’s no internet on the beach.

Number 8: Crap! I still need 3 more… this is not as easy as I thought it would be… OH! I know! Will attend awesome blogger event…Blogher 2013. And meet bloggers. And give hugs to strangers. Done and done.

Number 9: Will make money on blog. I don’t care if it’s $5 or $5,000…I will make dollars.

Number 10: Will win a million dollars from McDonald’s Monopoly. 13 is my lucky number. This is the year of my golden birthday. 2013 is it, guys. I can feel it. I’m going to be a big winner this year.

What are your big plans?

The Best New Year’s Eve. Ever. Wordless Wednesday: I’m Going to be Skinny Again This Year


  1. Sounds awesome hun! Best wishes! All the goals sound lovely and I hope it all happens for you…maybe not the monopoly one because I know it’s RIGGED dang it! LOL xoxo

  2. You are so awesome. I love all 10 of yours. I need to do all of them. I did kind of take a small Internet break the past two weeks… But most of all I want to find a way not to be 100% mommy. I need to be me too.

  3. BRIDGET!!!!!!!!

  4. I beg to differ on #7, the last resort I stayed at (for work, boooo) in Miami offered a WiFi access point on the beach under an umbrella, to help prevent glare. That said, I LOVE the idea of an Internet vacation… when I travel internationally, I never opt to unlock the global functions on my phone… it’s like I’m in 2005!

  5. Please, please tell me how to do this!!


  1. […] you may remember, I am doing the Weight Watchers thing, chili is an excellent way to get in your daily dose of fiber (both soluble and insoluble) […]

Speak to me. Tell me awesome things. Tell me secrets. Tell me lies.
