new year's resolutions

1. Weigh 125 pounds and maintain it. Everyone has to have a weight goal for New Years, right? I am almost happy with my weight but could be a little more in shape so there ya go.
Be able to run 5 miles without stopping to walk. This one might take a little more work.
3. Do 1 scrapbook page a week. I am now about 2.87 years behind... possibly more. I know I'll never really catch up but I figure I have a better chance now that I am single than I will when I am married and have little kidlets running around... or when I am in pharmacy school and ISU has eaten my soul. So, I am going to work on it. Yay.
4. Not swearing for the whole entire year. Now, don't get me wrong. Swea
ring is not a usual occurrence or anything, and I can count the number of people who have heard me swear on one hand. But I figure I might as well try to be perfect in it instead of slipping up every couple of months. Especially in the car. Haha.
5. Be sweet under pressure. OK, this
isn't really a measurable goal but yesterday at Chili's my dad was talking to us about what we could work on to be better people. He told me that I was very "What you see is what you get." This is actually something I kind of like about myself. However, when I am in a bad mood, usually because of stress or feeling tired or sick, I act stressed or tired or sick. I don't ever try to dumb it down for people, and this is not a good thing. It's easy to be nice to people when I feel good about the world... so now I am going to try (harder) to be nice to people when I feel badly about things.

more quote wall

"When he hugs you, he internalizes you" -Grandpa Johns, in reference to my cousin Matt. Don't know why that one was so funny, but we laughed really hard. :)

quote wall for my LIFE!!

Yesterday everyone kept saying funny things, and I couldn't help missing the quote walls I have had with some of my roommates over the years. The thing is that now I wouldn't know where to put it since it features most of the people I know and love. :) So I am putting it on this blog, since I don't use it for much else. Expect updates.

"If this thing falls off the vacuum again, I am going to swear!!" - Mom. (The thing did fall off again, about eight times, and she kicked it across the room).

"Why are you laughing?" -Me
"I'm not laughing, I'm hyperventilating." -Scott (Studying for molecular biology)

OK, and now that I have finally sat down to do this, I can't remember anymore! So I guess I will have to add to it as I remember them.
