But I Won't Do That
Look, I had the best intentions. You know the way people get. The New Year is approaching, and you make deals with yourself. Plans on how you're going to change. How you're going to wake up on January 1 and be a better person. A new and improved version of yourself.
I was going to come up with a schedule for the New Year. Contests would always start on the same day. Polls would always run the same amount of time. Fair is fair, right? But I'm actually not a very scheduled person. (What a shock.) I am rigorous in the way that I slam myself against deadlines to turn in my work on time, but I am not regimented in the way that I actually do my work. And I think I should accept that rather than kill myself trying to change.
What does that actually mean?
Well, some days I'll probably post four times in a row. And some days, I may not post at all.
What won't I do in the New Year?
I won't join a group blog. I won't apologize for things that other people say and do that are out of my control. I won't feel bad when I have a moment of being human and I rant or vent or snark.
What will I do?
I'll kick off the New Year with a fabulous contest! (Stop back in later today or tomorrow for the details.) Until then, what will you (or won't you) do in 2009?
