In case you didn't catch it, the new URL to my blog is:
Did you catch that? Are you sure? Okay, good. Moving on.
I'm looking forward to 2015, and hope to accomplish the following (i.e. these are my New Year resolutions):
1. Graduate from BYU. Should be easy enough. Come April I'll finally have that damn piece of paper that says I can go to grad school to get another piece of paper that says I'll be able to get a job . . . in five years . . . if I'm lucky.
2. Finish my book. I am writing a book trilogy and am nearly done with the first volume. The other two volumes are cooking up in my noggin, but I need to take this one thing at a time.
3. Read more. This may sound funny to those of you who know me, but I have been slacking recently in my reading. I need to spend less times on video games and more time getting to the bottom of my reading list.
4. Get in shape-ish. I know, I know, everyone lists this as a New Years resolution. But I would like to get into better shape-ish. I say "ish" because it's not like I am morbidly out of shape or anything, but I could do a little better. (I have a little muffin top and some pudge I'd like to see go away, if nothing else.) I plan on cutting out soda, except for rare occasions, and snacks and be more strict with my portions. I've tried exercising regularly before, but honestly I just get so bored so quickly while I work out that I'm not that excited to try it again. I figure watching my diet and staying active is half the battle, right?
5. Less Interwebs. I've wasted too much time mindlessly browsing the Internet. Time to cut down.
In other news, today marks my one year anniversary of being a vegetarian. I became a vegetarian on January 1, 2014 and have been going strong since. Honestly, I really don't miss meat. I occasionally crave a Five Guys burger, but that's about it. I guess my smug sense of being a better person than all of murderous carnivores sustains me!
In all seriousness, though, I am very pleased at how well it's been going for me. I've occasionally cheated by having sushi with some friends once in a blue moon. But I guess it's not that bad, since, after all:
So here's to another meat-free year!
