Today’s Resolution: Play/Don’t Play a Video Game

First of all, this photo is hilarious, is it not? Secondly, this resolution could go both ways, but the rules are simple. If you play video games every day, don’t play them today. If you don’t play video games very often, get into them.

Here in our little Rhode Island boathouse, we have an original NES and the day I brought it home from my mom’s attic it was like being in first grade all over again. On the other hand, I got bored with Angry Birds after the first ten minutes. So, choose whatever suits you.

Cellphone games, NES emulators, actual console games and web games on AdultSwim are all acceptable. Patrick’s also a non video game dude (possibly my favorite trait about him), but is dying to play Skyrim. So… it shall be a day of games!

Today’s Resolution: Donate Your Extra Clothes

There’s a plethora of places that want your old clothes. Maybe you got skinnier, or maybe you chubbed up over the holidays like I did. I know that you think you’re going to want to wear those clothes again when you lose the weight, but the truth is that you’re gonna want new clothes to show off your bodacious bod. And if you lost weight and are currently saving your fat clothes, for ***** sake, donate them already!

Today’s Resolution: Grocery Shop Like a European

In many parts of Europe, (I’m making this up from heresy as I go along), folks don’t just go around spending $200 a week on groceries and then wasting half of it every seven days. No, instead they go shopping for food as they need it. Less food is wasted, and ingredients are a heck of a lot fresher. Today, instead of sticking with your usual dinner routine, take a trip to your local grocer or farmers market with one meal in mind: dinner. Shop for only, and exactly, what you plan on cooking for dinner.

Today’s Resolution: Appreciate the Internet

Today is a planned black-out for many of your favorite websites as a statement against the businesses (Walmart, Adidas, Apple, Microsoft, Dell, Coach, Comcast, CVS, Ford, Johnson & Johnson and so many more)  and politicians who supported the now extinct  Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). Thankfully it was denied from the White House, but it’ll be back in another form, and Protect IP Act (PIPA – the Senate’s version of the act) is still being amended. More about those two.

Today’s Resolution: Write a Haiku

A Haiku or /ˈhīˌko͞o/ is defined as “a poem of seventeen syllables, in three lines of five, seven, and five, traditionally evoking images of the natural world.” I haven’t written a haiku since my creative writing class in college, and I’ve never been very good at them anyway, but I look at them as a fun sort of troubleshooting exercise.
