A few resolutions for the new year that should be made, never minding that they would probably be broken after about three months. It's still better to make them in the first place so that they would be kept at least for three months:
Reading a few books with a lot of focus instead of reading many books with little focus: I need to concentrate on actually finishing a book in a short time rather than condemning books to be read sometime in their, and my, natural lifetimes, by tagging them with indestructible bookmarks.
Cutting down on Mexican food...ok, cutting down on food
Exercising (Why do I even bother to write that down?...)
Work (Not too bad as a third or fourth priority)
Getting my PhD. done ASAP (Corollary of above)
Talking less and doing more. Talking less and listening more. Writing more and talking less. Procrastinating less and doing more. Drinking more milk and less orange juice. Taking the intolerable pains to read at least one lengthy, boring technical journal article per week.
To "Just chill, chill; just chill chill..." more
As of now, I am caught between two or three necessities of graduate life, so blogging may be a little haphazard in the next three months. But I have not forgotten, and I will not forget. Happy New Year, by the way!
