My parents have given me this talk before, but what really drove it home for me was the fact that my mom was in TEARS when she left the house this morning for my grandparents' place. It made me realize what my slacking was doing to her and I've sworn that I will NEVER let that happen again. So, I've got a few resolutions for this year that I'm damn well going to keep.
1. I'm turning the computer off at 1AM at the LATEST. No more staying up until 4 in the morning listening to Radio KoL and talking with folks online.
2. I'm going to get a job. I've blown through so much money since I started at FSU it's not funny. So, Dad and I are going to figure out a budget before I leave, and I'm gonna stick to it and find a job.
3. I'm going to actually stick with Weight Watchers. I have the booklets and whatnot, so the meetings aren't that necessary. I'm WAY too heavy for my height, and I need to fix that.
Those are the ones I have at the moment; the list will probably grow as the days go on. *channels Darien Fawkes a bit* There's a Chinese proverb that says while teachers open the door, you have to enter by yourself. If I'm going to open the door for others, I need to figure out how to open the lock first. Wish me luck.
