I’m not one that typically makes real new years resolutions. Sure, I say, I should lose some weight, eat better, blah blah. I don’t mean it. Generally speaking, I’m satisfied with all that crap.
But, this year, I decided that I needed to make some changes. I was turning 30 and I was (am) a introvert and avoider of doing stuff that might make me uncomfortable.
So I decided (after some discussions with @AliKira) that this year, I’d take some more risks, try to stop worrying about stuff out of my control, and damnit, have some fun.
What does this mean?
Well, for one, I’m trying to meet some of my local twitter followers. These people that I interact with regularly online, so why can’t I do the same in person? If it gets too weird, we can just sit at the same table and tweet each other, right?
Secondly, if I’m having a get together and I’m inviting my friends, it isn’t (really) up to me to ensure everyone has a ‘group’ there. Invite the people I want there. They can find conversation with new people (or choose not to attend). That’s all out of my control (and not worth my worry)!
Finally, make some time to do the things I want to do. Go out and have fun with friends. Find the time around my family’s schedule. Yea, maybe it’s going to be later at night and I’ll have to miss my bedtime. If I keep telling myself I like to play games and do stuff with friends, damnit, I better actually go do it, rather than bitching about not having the time to do it.
So, James, let’s do Picolino’s in April.
