So I thought that I might actually try to come up with some New Year's resolutions. I have not, in the past, because then I don't have the pressure of trying to fulfill these self-required obligations, as well as the crushing defeat when I don't. But I thought that I should actually be about bettering myself this year, rather than rejoicing in stagnance.
So here are some of my resolutions thus far:
1. Become more fiscally responsible
- I have not been the best at remaining on top of my finances and on-time bill paying, so I thought it might be good to try it this new year.
2. Get in better shape
- I'm not in terrible shape currently, but there is always room for improvement.
3. Learn to play the guitar
- This WILL be the year that I learn how to play that thing that has been taking up space in my various residences for the past 7 years
So that is what I've come up with as of 8:25pm, Sunday, January 2, 2005 (I almost typed 2004......). None of them are insurmountable, but none of them are as enjoyable as the resolution a friend told me she had come up with, which was to take more naps.
Now, in other news... I was flipping channels after church today and I came across a show on PBS about post-modern worship, which was kind of cool, although it was mostly centered around Baptist churches, I think. Then I took a nap on the couch and woke up to a show called The Congregation
, which is about the struggles of an urban Philadelphia Methodist congregation. It was a pretty good documentary. So I thought I'd give you the link so that you could check it out and see if it airs in your area, and maybe even watch it. There was a line in it that made me laugh: The Church is like Noah's ark. It's smelly, but if you get out, you'll drown.
Here's the PBS link
for the show.
Check it out!
