Well, I know it’s been a very long time since I posted anything. There just hasn’t been much to write about. I haven’t had any mind boggling revelations that I could interest anyone with, so it’s been left for a few months. Anyway, thanks for all the supportive things people have said regarding my last post. The situation turned out fine. I was just at bit emotionally vulnerable. But I know that I have friends who I can talk to in times like that.
Okay, the point of this post. This is me posting my New Years Resolutions. I’ve never had one, so this is me just listing some things that I really want to do next year or get right next year. Here we go.
- Stop cracking my knuckles.
The above is something that my parents and brother have been trying to get me to stop for a while now, and I can’t seem to get out of the habit, so I’m really going to try now. Unfortunately it just feels so good, but according to the internet that good feeling is basically the same as dislocating your shoulder. As you pull the bones and cartilage apart a gas is released, making a popping sound. It stretches the joint and stimulates the nerve endings. This is okay, however, although it doesn’t lead to arthritis like rumour suggests, it does lead to weaker joints and reduced hand strength. And the popping sound disturbs people (it doesn’t disturb me, but my brother doesn’t like it, and neither do some of my friends), so goodbye cracking knuckles habit. I’ll be trying the rubber band method, which is used a lot to get rid of annoying habits and was suggested on a site. You have a rubber band around your wrist and when ever you feel the need to crack your knuckles, you flick it (which I’ll be doing gently, cause it will hurt a little). This causes your self-consciousness to associate knuckle cracking with pain.
- Read the bible using two year plan from SAYCO.
SAYCO stands for South Australian Youth Camp Out, but you don’t need to know about that. I want to read the bible to learn more about God and Jesus, because I am aspiring to be a Christian and I’m still working through a lot of doubts. But then, science does that to you. I just want to believe there’s a God up there and that there is an afterlife, because I am afraid of death and nothingness. So, don’t argue with my wanting to be a Christian. It’s the only thing that will help me go to sleep at night.
- Be more kind to people and get some tolerance.
Tolerance is something I need and people have been telling me this all my life. I’m 15 almost 16 now, and I need to get some tolerance, otherwise I will continue to be a bit of witch.
^ speaks for itself, I want to learn Norwegian.
- Do well in school and do whatever I can to stop being stressed.
This is a must, an absolute MUST. Year 10 was so stressful it was almost impossible to cope with towards the end. I think we all felt that.
- Finish my novel (ANY OF THEM!)
I need to finish at least one of my dozens of begun novels. I especially want to finish the romance one.
And I think that’s it. I would like to say I will stop reading fanfiction, but that’s a big ‘no’. I love fanfiction, and I really can’t see myself putting it down. I will, however, try to cut down on the hours I spend reading it when I’m meant to be going to sleep. It’s making me sleep deprived, which leads to the stress. So, enough reading it at night time.
Have a safe and happy New Years Eve, readers.
Godt Nyttår! (Happy New Year!)
