Resolutions: Pointless yet expected

Last year I posted my resolutions. I even went as far as making a page on here about them. I can pretty much say if sticking to resolutions were a class I probably made a C- or maybe a D? You can read them all here. But I’m going to recap.

1. Never watch Beaches again. Reminds me too much of a friend I miss dearly. (Check. And that friend and I are in the same zip code now.)

2. Stop yelling every time something doesn’t go my way. (I did pretty well with this one…)

3. Here’s the most common of all: Lose a total of 30 pounds by next year. (Well this didn’t happen. But you can read why here. All I have to say is I have an Oprah excuse.)

4. Keep up calorie-counting. (Um yeah…that got old.)

5. Get over the things I can’t change. That’s a big one. (Bombed.)

6. Make myself more available when it comes to sparking new relationships. It’s time I’ve found grown up events and places (i.e. not bars) to frequent to nab me a man…(First part. Yes. Second part…um yea.)

7. MAKE MORE MONEY. (This did happen. And my photography helped a little as well.)

8. Travel. No excuses of money, time or if I can get people to join me.  (My three-month stint at “love” took me to Vegas.)

9. Get my dream lens…at all costs. A new camera won’t hurt either.  (Check and check. But now I have another dream lens I want.)

10. Complain less. That’s a hard one so I have one caveat: Complain less to people in person and get it all out on my blog.  (I did pretty damn good with this one, considering where I had to start. Only I wish that I blogged more.)

So I’m ready to get going on this year’s set of resolutions that I am going to work like hell to actually complete. This is a new year that I have been waiting for all last year. Last year was a real challenge.

Oh no. I’m not PC.

Oh noes! Iz aint PC! 

I need to point out this blogger. And may I say this “boomer” knew exactly what he/she was doing when they posted this. And he/she pretty much got what they wanted — I’m talking about it. This is what they are in a tizzy about.

I have to vote for someone…and that someone will not be McCain. Mostly because he’s downright too old. I’m not an ageist. I just don’t think he will be able to handle the stress of the role he will have at hand. Eight years ago? Maybe. Today? Even though I find this guy to be tough as nails and possibly the best to handle wartime, I don’t know if we need another heart-attack.

What’s funny, I’ve been more attacked about the Obama mention. So it’s refreshing to be yelled at about something else! I’m not always PC. And neither are most of you. I would like to know what this person thinks about blacks, Latinos, women, Jews, PETA. What does this person say in the privacy of his/her own home?

Does that make us all stupid? Well, that’s up for opinion. I appreciate someone like this stepping up to call me out on something I said that he/she isn’t thrilled with. But I hope this post will expound their thoughts a little more. Why so bitter?

Anyway, I left a comment over there. And yes. I misspelled a word or two in it due to my moment of “passion.” See. I guess I MUST stupid — and human.
