This Year I Resolve Not To...

A lot of people- myself NOT included- take the opportunity to set resolutions for the new year. People will set goals to quit smoking, lose weight, exercise more, save money...all honourable. Sometimes resolutions will be more fun- fall in love, spend more time with friends, finally take that dream vacation. I've never been one to jump on the New Year's Resolution Bandwagon. I know that, like most people, I won't keep the resolutions, so why bother?

This year, I thought instead of making a list of things I will do this year, I would make a list of things I won't do. I still don't consider these "resolutions".

Here are the 10 things I resolve not to do in 2019:
  1. Let people devalue me. I know myself worth and if you are not going to value me, I don't have room for you in my life. 
  2. Have a bedtime. In the past, I have gone to bed whenever I felt like it- sometimes at 9pm, sometimes at 2am- and still managed to be awake and start my day by 8am. This has worked for me in the past, so why change it?
  3. Become a vegetarian. Do you know how great bacon is?! I am not giving that up. I also resolve not to become a vegan, because cheese.
  4. Give up on cheesecake. It's delicious and just makes life better. 
  5. Watch Star Wars/Lord of the Rings/Harry Potter. I have never seen any of these movies, to the shock and awe of many. 
  6. Start smoking. That way I don't have to resolve to quit smoking later. 
  7. Throw a snowball that has ice in it at someone. That's just mean.
  8. Binge Netflix for more than two consecutive days. You need a break, you need to leave the house, you need to do something-anything-productive. 
  9. Listen to screamo music. Never been a fan. 
  10. Confine myself to top 10 lists. Also, I can't think of anything else.
