One of my friends told me that her resolution was: hooking up with as many men as possible. I highly doubt she can reach that. Because she is getting fatter and crankier everyday, and she is getting older and older.

Sometimes we just set the resolution to make ourselves confortable or confident. but most of the time, it's not gonna work out.

I would love to add one more option into my resolutions: becoming more sophisticated and gossip less. this one must be easy:)

It's not as easy as you think. It can be a bad habit to break. If it helps, I heard this once and it is good to remember:
Intelligent people talk about ideas;
Average people talk about events and weather;
Stupid and boring people talk about other people.

What a coincidence... recently I've read this very same saying and it made me think...

However, you have to admit: gossiping is pleasant, really. sometimes it's even healthy. I actually enjoy it.

Haha... here we are again.
2009 began.

About the 3 intentions for 2008, I mentioned at the beginning of this threat:

Well I achieved passing my exam Very Happy
Furthermore I got a job at the same company.

Improving my English... I think that worked as well. At least a little bit Very Happy

The third one, more sleep, didn't work so good as the first two things. It wasn't much more in 2008 Confused So I hope I'll sleep more from now on.

Regards
LeBron

 My New Yearís resolutions are study English very hard, lose weight of 5 kg until this summer and try newly anything. First, I have a dream of becoming a grand staff. Therefore I have to learn perfect English. Second, I am very partial to sweets, so I often eat too much. I have put on weight recently. I have to go on a diet! Third, I want to try various things. Because I can know newly things and I think that I can grow up to be a great woman.
I think if we make New Yearís resolutions, we achieve the goal of granting our wish. It is really hard work to grant our wish. But we should make an effort! For instance, it is impossible by us that you donít think ďSuch a goal is unattainable.Ē That is to say, we make a plan we have to do our best. We will certainly come true our dream. Of course, I will do my best for oneself. I think I can do anything with my friends. So I will study English hard, go on a diet and try newly anything at once. Letís do your best with me! For the realization of our hopes... Razz
