2006 Resolutions.

Every year people make [and break] resolutions for the New Year. I don't care what anyone says though, I still like doing them. Why? Well because it is a fun way to measure success. Just don't start getting yourself on a guilt trip if you don't fulfill your resolutions. C'mon lighten up, it's just for fun. I'll share mine, if you share yours:

HAPPY NEW YEAR, Papi! I got your voicemail and that really put a smile on my face... especially that ending, "...and you betta not be talking to anybody else 'cause you're MINE!" -lol- That really made my night. Thanks, I appreciate it, and you have A LOT of goals for this year. I think I'm gonna do the same thing. I think I'm gonna break them down by month so I can be real disciplined towards meeting them and not put them off "until later," ya know?

Like Capoeira!! I don't think I got that in me, but that would be real cool to try, it's cool to watch, hitting the gym 3-4x's a week, that's one thing I've DEFINITELY had in mind because it's been a while for me, I also wanna do some volunteering, and big bro type things. Make a film?? What kinda films you talkin bout homie??? -lol- (Getting mind outta gutter... now...) and ANYWAY, I see we have a lot of things in common in terms of our resolutions, such as writing, photography, strengthening our relationships w/ God... keep it real homie, i'll hoLLa @cha when I get a chance... PEACE!
