|03:02 am - Happy Fucking New Years|
New icon to commerate season 2 of Carnivale, Nick Stahl...mmmmmm.
So, one of my new years resolutions is to reevaluate this journal.
I dont pretend to think that my entries have any impact on the people who read it, but what I want is for it to have an impact on me. So my goal is to keep this journal for myself and be able to look back on 2005 as a guide to what happened in my life.
2004 was a year full of big stuff. The biggest being the announcement of my new niece or nephew, who is only 5 weeks away. My other brother got engaged, and I went through another year convinced I will be a spinster 4life.
Milestones I had a few: graduating from graduate school, getting my first professional full time job, moving out on my own, dealing with Byl's leaving, losing 20 pounds, etc.
Goals for 2005: to keep losing weight, to find inner peace, to read 100 books, to see 50 movies (in theater), to be a wonderful aunt and to stop gambling.
Well the last one has already been shot. Actually the goal is based on tonights events. Down 70 bucks, won 50 and leave only 20 bucks behind. Instead one hour later I am down 120. How did this happened? Now that I have adult type bills I find myself having buyers remorse and gamblers remorse so much more. What I could have done with 120 dollars? It makes me cringe just thinking of it. It seems so easy to win when your winning and so impossible when you are losing.
Saw Meet the Fockers with Brooke, hilarious perhaps better than the first. Bold statement.
2005 the year of the Char.
Current Mood: tired
please keep your journal :)

Yay, a Charlotte update! I think you should keep updating too.
I know how you feel about buyer's remorse. I keep convincing myself I need stuff and then feel bad about it later when I need things like food.
Lou and Nancy were asking about you the other day. Nancy says that now you need to come visit her since you live close by.
