Yep, that’s right, I like a good New Year’s resolution.
I seem to be in the minority but I still find something refreshing about it. New start, new year, new dedication to making something better. I’ve heard most resolutions get pushed aside by February. I still like the idea of them.
This year actually marks a few changes for me. My college schedule is changing, as it does every semester, and my work schedule is changing. The work schedule change feels like a really big deal. Instead of full time nights I’ll be part-time nights and part-time afternoons. At least for now.
I like my job, mostly, I haven’t minded night work too much but I find I’ve started using my work schedule as an excuse for bad behavior. I can’t make lunch – I work nights and I’m too tired to socialize. I can’t work out – I’m too tired to even move. I haven’t texted you back? – yeah, with my work schedule I forget things. My slovenly appearance – who sees my anyway? I work nights.
I would also like to go all cliché and get on that exercise bandwagon that everyone gets on this time of year. Last year I bit off a bit more than I could chew by agreeing to run a half marathon with my co-blogger. She did. I found a variety of excuses not to. I’m not going that big this year but I would like to re-attempt a 5K.
With such a drastic change in my schedule I want to take the opportunity to create something more manageable and a little bit better. Good luck to all you other resolution makers out there! Let’s keep them – at least until March!
