Surprised no one has started a thread on this yet. I just had an idea pop into my head so I thought I'd get it going.<br><br><br><br>
Mine is to do something nice for someone else every day of the new year. Wonder how long that'll last. *lol* Anyway, it's a nice thought. I'll mark each day's good deed on my calendar. Maybe once a month I'll post the list to VB.<br><br><br><br>
Basically this is an effort to become a better person, to appreciate and share what I have, and to do something to make the world just a little better for others.

I thought of it too, but figured I'd wait for someone else.<br><br><br><br>
Just maintaining VB is doing something nice for someone else everyday.<br><br><br><br>
Hmm. My resolutions. Every year I pick the same thing- better mental, physicial, and spiritual health. But that is really too broad. I need to think about it for a while.

1) Stop eating sugar and other things that have no nutritional value, because junk food makes me feel icky.<br><br><br><br>
2) Go out more often (watching Seinfeld reruns isn't getting me anywhere socially).<br><br><br><br>
3) Finish at least one issue of my zine.<br><br><br><br>
4) Stop avoiding things that make me uncomfortable.<br><br><br><br>
5) Keep track of my money.<br><br><br><br>
6) Be more open with my family.

To read more thoroughly on VB with more intent to undestand VBers rather than just find something to reply-to.

Good one! I haven't had a lot of time to spend online recently so I'm not reading as carefully as I wish I could. As soon as I have the money I'm getting a internet access at home so I don't have to surf the web at work.

One that my sister just reminded me of: actually sit down and READ the Harry Potter books. (She refuses to discuss the movies with me until I read the books.) They've been on my list o' books-I-must-read forever.<br><br><br><br>
Oh, and buy at least one piece of VB merchandise. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:">
