Restitution For My Resolutions

I don’t make new resolutions every year, I carry the ones from years past behind me like loose threads from torn seams on tattered jeans I know I should donate.  But they’re so comfortable.  Yeah, letting yourself down becomes comfortable, too.

Every year, I dust my neglected old resolutions off, patch them up, and gently place them on my shiny new ‘To Do’ shelf, next to the books I still haven’t read (RJT).

Well, this year is going to be different (I try to say without LOLing all over myself).

I have come to the conclusion I don’t deserve the life I have.  Now, that’s not as bad as it sounds.  What it means, is life is a gift horse into who’s mouth you should not look.  I need to do more with what I’ve been given.

That begins with paying restitution to my resolutions.  I don’t need to resolve to do a bunch of new stuff at the beginning of this magical year, I need to renovate my previous resolutions.  I’ve known what I need to do for a long time.  Just ask past versions of myself at the beginning of just about every year of my life.  It’s always the same.

Why do I have the same resolutions at the beginning of every year?  Because I suck.

What does this have to do with Badass Sci Fi?  Shut up.  It has everything to do with Badass Sci Fi.  Turn here.

    • Yes, there are many others I need to get to, but can I please just start with these, while also trying to finish Ready Player One, Hyperion, and Revelation Space?  Can I?  Thank you.
  • Pursue my writing career through whatever avenues necessary.
  • HămBōCrăMō
  • Eat better and exercise more.

Okay, that’s enough for now.  Until next time, don’t bother me.  I’m resolving a book.

About the author

The universe planted many ideas in my mind. I pass them off as my own, but know they're stolen. My ideas gain traction, grow, and consume me. I become my ideas. The universe implants the idea of me in my brain. I am stolen.
