[1217] i resolve

Girl power and what-not.
Another fantastic New Year's Eve party behind us. Between the fantastic new friends I made (Nate, Erin, Will) and the old friends I hadn't seen in for-eh-ver (Mo, Tremper), it was one for the record books. Plus, everyone's '90s costumes were amazical. Calling it a big time win.

No one could top Nate &
Will's Just Dance
I don't think I've made a New Year's resolution since 7th grade or so. I resolved to stop biting my nails, and it actually worked for nearly a year. But then they'd get long and I just felt like it was easier to bite 'em off than to cut 'em, so that habit's been back in full force for a while now. This year I've decided to give resolving another shot, albeit in a slightly different way.

Instead of making one sweeping resolution that I'm supposed to actually remember and take into account throughout the whole year, I'm going to attempt monthly resolutions--things I probably should be doing anyway.

So here's month one, and let's hope that I can remember to keep doing this. Happy 2012!

Doesn't his voice just make you want to cry?

If you need to borrow Jurassic Park, I've got it. Read it twice and it's great! Let me know if you need it, I can always bring it to work with me. :)

Thanks, Kristi! I actually already have it. It's been on my bedside table calling to me for months. :)
