New Year Resolution

Posted by david | 8:53 AM | 5 comments »

I'm not a fan of the New Year Resolution. I'm all for goal setting. New Year Resolutions are just another example of ritual getting in the way of authenticity. In the interest of being authentic, I feel the need to disclose a goal that I set for myself last week. Not a resolution, but a "I want to do this for me. I believe, if I spend the time and energy to accomplish this goal, I will find the end result rewarding."
I am working to memorize the lyrics to "Numb" by Family Force 5 and perfecting a few old school breakdancing moves (downrock/footwork and freezes mainly). When I've completed the goal, I will be able to break out at any moment, giving an accurate and entertaining rendition of the song.
For those of you unfamiliar with the song, you may listen here. You may wish to see expert cellphone footage of Family Force 5 rockin' it live. Xanadu's footwork is admirable. My moves will be much sweeter.

    my "I want to do this for me. I believe, if I spend the time and energy to accomplish this goal, I will find the end result rewarding." is to stop using a purse. I'm suck of carrying around a sack of junk. it just so happens that the date I've set to accomplish this goal is January 1st.

    David...for the love all that is good and holy, please don't do this.

    Or, at least, never perform the aforementioned movies in front of me.
