Screw Resolutions...

I tried not to do any resolution posts because it would make me feel obligated to keep up my word. And honestly that would be way too much work for me so no, I won't do it. Kudos to all of you who did though, all I gotta say is you'll envy me soon enough. You'll see. Instead I decided to share my bad habits. The ones I had the previous years and will continue to have in 2010. I mean well, I do, I just can't change who I am if I don't try. So please brace yourself for the shock: I'm not perfect. Consider yourself warned, here you go:

  • I don't like talking on the phone. I don't care how much I love you, I don't want to talk on the phone with you. HOWEVER, if you love me, you'll text me. I'm all about texts, they are short, to the point and saves you from awkward silent moments. And if I call you, its either a) You re special or b) It was an accident. Probably b.
  • I'm an antisocial. I don't enjoy going out as much as I used to. Blame it on depression, on personality disorder, on being my dad's daughter, aging, the economy or whatever. All I know is I love staying in to watch movies with Jeff or read a good book. Besides, there are far too many women shoving their babies and/or baby bumps in my face. Very rudely, I might add.
  • I've become a procrastinator. It seems I find it thrilling to wait until the last minute to do what needs to be done. Like Christmas shopping or having a kid for example, I always wanted it to be before I was thirty.... well I'm in the last possible weeks to make that happen. If this IVF works I'll be popping the kid out towards the end of October, 2-3 weeks before my 30th birthday. Ooooh, will I make the deadline? 
I'm not as bad as I sound though. I may not call regularly but *I think* I show my love and appreciation to those who deserve it everyone. I go out when its important, to family events or to visit my people, it just isn't as often. And the procrastination? well I'm counting on my ability to always reach the deadline to hook me up before my birthday. We shall see.

And even though I said what I said, I'm going to try to be better with my habits. I'm not committing to changing just to trying to be better. FYI: these don't count as resolutions since this is way past the beginning of the year, therefore, my title stands. 


  1. I see you are afraid of commitments, how did Jeff sneak in there? lol
    I think you are smart for just committing to trying to change and not saying you will. GL

  2. I hope this is one deadline you don't miss! it seems like faith though that this ivf is timed perfectly for your wish :)

  3. LOL these women are rude shoving their babies and bumps in your face, how dare they? You are funny girl. I'm like you though, I love texting so much more than talking but I'm not changing!

  4. I love how you are blaming procrastination on not having a child yet, shows you can laugh at your problems haha
    I'll be praying you meet the deadline with a baby in your hands. I hate resolutions too, so yea screw them!

  5. I'm with you on each and every one of these: hate phone conversations: check; don't like to go out: check; putting everything off until the last minute: check! And I've accepted that that's just who I am. Except for the procrastinating: I'm trying to work on that one!

    Good luck with just being yourself!

  6. We may have been separated at birth. I have the same bad habits - well except the texting thing (I don't have a cellphone).


  7. I think we were separated at birth too...I CAN'T STAND talking on the phone! My goal was also 30, but I got screwed on that deal. I really really hope that this works for you...can't wait until you get started! Looking forward to your updates:)

  8. I think you'll kick your deadline's butt with this IVF!
    I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who became antisocial because of miscarriage and infertility. I don't think its personality disorder lol you are a trip girl!

  9. Haha maybe if we all said screw you resolution we might try harder, I like where you are going with this. Good plan. You had me laughing at "probably b" way to make people feel special :)

    I'm a procrastinator too, my husband hates that about me but he has to live with because no matter how hard I try I can't change it. I'm hoping you "pop" your kid out before you are thirty, I'm crossing my fingers!

  10. Yeah, so, I am totally a text-er too! I totally get it. It is so much easier -- straight to the point, no dumb small talk, just the basics. And you can text at any time -- in meetings, from the bathroom, grocery store, etc.

    The thing that gets me is when I text people and then they CALL me right back. Dude, if I wanted to TALK to you on the phone, I would have called. But I texted. Which means I probably can't (or don't want to) talk!!!

    Love ya!

  11. Shanny... we are long lost lovers. Okay, that's a little creepy. Not lovers... but you know! haha
    I don't want to talk on the phone. Yes, you can try calling, but if you text me you will get a response wayyyyyyyyyyy faster.

    Today a girlfriend of mine got mad because I wanted to spend my Sunday by myself. You know, doing whatever *I* want. apparently that's bad. Shocking right? I am antisocial... so sue me.

    You know my feeling on resolutions. Bite me.

    If you have free North American texting I can totally stalk your ass and make you feel important. (Oh, and I did a VBlog for tomorrow... right... you'll be running in the other direction now!)

  12. I hope you make this deadline!! :)

  13. You procrastinator, you! :)

    Praying that this is it for you and Jeff! Oh, and I'm not a phone person either...text, email, sure but the calls need to stop! :)

  14. I hope you make that deadline!
    ps I left you an award on my page!

  15. LOL. Just wait. When you do have a child, all of the above will get worse cause you won't have time for talking on the phone or going out and being proactive : ) Happy New Year!

  16. I hope you make the deadline!!!!

  17. Wait, there is something wrong with texting instead of dialing?

  18. I swear I could never tell these things about you through your blog.
    For one, you seem so open, so ready to talk...i guess just preferably not on the phone.
    You? Antisocial!?!? REally??!? You seem so outgoing, so funny, so personable, I would never picture you like! As for procrastinating...well i think we all may have that lurking inside of comes out in different ways but im sure everyone could relate!
    Kudos for self improvement girl!

  19. You are too funny. Love the phone thing ... it's probably b. Classic.

    Winks & Smiles,
