Wishing Everyone A Very Happy New Year!!!


Now, for my New Year's Resolutions. I don't usually do this, but after feeling like I accomplished very little in 2005, I've decided to make some resolutions for 2006 so that if next year is as sucky as last year, I'll at least feel like I made some progress:

-To clear my backlog of manga.

-To complete at least one piece of original fiction.

-To lose that last 30 lbs. with diet and exercise.

-To read at least 200 books (averaging 4-5 per week).

-To write something controversial online that's bound to piss off moronic fanboys and girls everywhere at least once or twice. XD

Feel free to hold me to all this stuff. ^_~

Once or twice a week, right?

Oh, I'm just being a Bad Idea Bear (hmmm, that's an idea for those new icons LJ gave us free users...)

Happy new year!

Ahhh, there we go...

*snorts* At least once or twice THIS COMING YEAR! ^_~

The new icon's a little bit...creepy. ^^; What are those bears in the photo? Are they actually called "Bad Idea Bears"?

Yeah, they're the Bad Idea Bears from Avenue Q. They're a couple of perky, cutesy bears that offer terrible advice to the other characters, like buying a round of drinks (Long Island Iced Teas, natch) when one person in the group has a big day at work the next day.

To read at least 200 books

So you're cutting back? ^_~

Actually, I'm attempting to nearly double my consumption. Most of the non-manga/comics books that I read this year were done during the last three months of this year. (Around sixty, I think. ^^;;;; Take a look for yourself.)

That's scary.. I resolve to not even try to keep up with you ^_^;
1st-Jan-2006 06:43 pm (UTC)
But you weren't trying before! XD

(You really should to book reviews/idle thoughts of titles you do read, though...How 'bout it???)
1st-Jan-2006 07:29 pm (UTC)
Well before I hadn't thought about not trying, now I resolve to actively not try ^_~

Hee, I actually was kind of thinking of a few random reviews, especially after one I just read had an unsatisfying ending.. There's just always that thought in the back of my mind about being outside my area of expertise, especially with all the literature majors around ^^;;

Nothing like an anti-New Year's resolution, eh? ^^;

There's just always that thought in the back of my mind about being outside my area of expertise, especially with all the literature majors around ^^;;

There's a big difference between "Gee, that part struck me as interesting" or "This was entertaining" and "Harry Potter is a mediocre, formulaic, conventional example of children's literature," you know. :P

Besides, recommendations give me ideas about what to read. I find I often don't agree, but even that sort of stuff can be enlightening in a roundabout fashion.

Well maybe, as long as you promise not to grade me ^^;;

*snorts* You think anyone cares? I can post my academic papers publicly and no one even reads them. :P
1st-Jan-2006 10:48 pm (UTC)
I posted one on debt forgiveness, and I don't think anyone read it ^^;;; It was locked though, so that did limit the audience rather substantially....
1st-Jan-2006 11:48 pm (UTC)
Hmm...I think I remember that...
