I still say livejournal needs a proper android app ... everybody loves iphone apps. *sigh* Since getting a smartphone, I do most of my down-time web browsing on that, not my computer. Weird. I avoided the smartphone for so long, and now ...? Love it to bits. Don't remember how I managed to keep a schedule without it!

Anywho. I think it's time to make some resolutions. I usually don't, cause mostly people set themselves up for failure, but I think it's a good idea this time around. So ...

  1. Remember to make some time for fun. Keeping up with lj, socializing with folk, reading for the hell of it, playing a video game. And not JUST when school is out! Grad school may be devouring my life, but this is getting a bit ridiculous.
  2. Eat healthier. And not just cause I want to lose weight. Veggies = Good? Sugar = Bad? Uh, how about, Less Good ...
  3. Try to save some money. I can't go on a dig to Pompeii if I can't pay for it. And I really, really, REALLY want to go to Pompeii.
  4. Start figuring out my PhD program options. I've got about a year to get this shit sorted, but that doesn't mean I should wait till next fall ...
  5. Start submitting papers for grad student colloquia / conferences. Gotta start sometime, might as well get used to the idea.
  6. Remember that bit about having more fun? Do it!

For the "make some time for fun" part:

Don't do this: http://www.xkcd.com/165/
Do this: http://www.xkcd.com/268/

For the "eat healthier" part: Be sure to have good recipes for vegetarian food, they can be much more interesting than just "replace meat with X" meals.

Mickey and I are trying to do at least two weeks with no added sugar (except for the coffee), just to get over the Xmas sugar orgy.

Submitting papers is good. I've been missing that part since I left the State Library.
