At some point during tonight’s un-fun Phillies game I realized that it was the last day of the month. So thanks for the reminder, craptastical baseball game.
- Read every day. Yay, I managed to keep this resolution again. I’m slightly disappointed in myself because I only read one book this month (and it isn’t Team of Rivals), but I have to remember that the point is to read; I never set a goal of reading x number of books a month.
- Blog every day. I managed to keep this resolution as well. Again, the goal never had anything to do with quality (which is good for me, but maybe not so great for you).
- Exercise every day. Does walking from my desk to the printer a billion times a day count as exercise? ‘Cause that’s about all I did this month.
- Brush my teeth twice every day. I’m pretty sure I brushed my teeth every morning I left the house, but I know I went to bed without brushing my teeth a lot. I blame my electric toothbrush for this, by the bye. For some reason using the electric toothbrush just feels more difficult or more time-consuming or something and when it’s late and I’m tired I just can’t get the energy to do so. I got rid of my old manual toothbrush to try to force myself to use the electric one, but I think that was a bad move.
Stop drinking soda.As previously discussed, I was sticking to this resolution until the day I decided it was doing more harm than good.
- Break out of my comfort zone. I think I spent a lot of this month actively digging myself deeper into my comfort zone. But I’m not going to beat myself up about it because I’ve spent enough time this month beating myself up over other shit, which probably led to the aforementioned behavior.
Yeesh, this started positive. But, wow, has it gotten dark. I don’t want to end in such a bad place. Let’s see, what are some good things that happened this month? I just got an email from Starbucks informing me that the Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino is back. And apparently there is something called a Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino, which I must try. The new Frank Turner and Andrew McMahon records came out and they are both fantastic. (Okay, I’ve only listened to the Andrew McMahon record once – it came out today – but I dug it.) I watched (part of) a live baseball game on my iPhone while in my car. How incredibly cool is that? Man, it is awesome to be alive in the 21st century.
Okay, I feel better now.
