i think i’ve used that title before, but it seems appropriate for the magical image above.
happy new year, everyone- let’s try make good on our resolutions for 2009…
mine are:
1. sleep, wake up early
2. start running more (again)
3. work less, but make more meaningful work
4. less internet roaming, but more blogging
5. relax
6. spend more time with family
7. movies, books, art, music- see, read, look, listen more (thanks for reminding me, rebecca)
what are some of yours?

(12.30.08) i decided to keep adding to this list since there is so much i left out, and i am also a terrible editor and a hasty poster.

the other day i was tagged for the very first time by noemi, from life in lomo and xxn. Here are 8-ish a bunch of random things about myself:

1. i am addicted to the internet. i’m on it all day.
2. i sometimes wish i was still a smoker.
3. i am addicted to sleeping. i love it and i hate it. i can do it all day.
4. i take pleasure in my tears. sometimes pain feels good.
5. i like firm handshakes and good jokes.
6. i don’t like a song, i love it. and then i listen to it over and over, and over and over.
7. two of my close friends i’ve known for 24+25 years.

8. i hate photos of myself, my dog’s name is lou, and we are both pictured above.
9. i am rarely weather-appropriate, wearing summer clothes during the winter, and some winter clothes during the summer.
10. i lived in los angeles for just over a year, and sometimes i miss it. a lot. but most times i am so happy to be back in new york.
11. i take pleasure in an evening drink.
12. i have a terrible sweet-tooth, and i’m a junk food junkie
13. i love young love.
14. with a -9.5 / -10 prescription, i’m almost legally blind.
