New Years Resolutions  
I don't usually do these. I break 'em so often. But I thought about it, and I figured these are things that will make me both a better person and happier overall.

  1. Get off my ass. Go. Do.
  2. Allow myself to be myself in public. Sing Lionel Richie and Rick Astley on the train. Dance.
  3. Be eccentric. It's okay.

This is very "your mileage may vary," but one of the best things I learned to do was to start smiling at people again. In a way, I think it was like giving myself permission to be open about being happy. It's not something people do often - it's ok to be stoic and angry and sad because it's showing you're living and you're strong and you're surviving it. What the hell kind of bullshit is it not being ok to show you're happy?

Screw it. I smile at strangers.

That would require me to smile.

Smiling hurts my ever-stoic face. :|

Good resolutions! Either I've lived on Cap Hill for too long, but it is VERY firmly ingrained by now that there is no such thing as normalcy. There is only healthy and unhealthy. I think good things will happen if you show the world who you really are.
