New Year's Resolution for 2011

Happy New Year Peoples.  Yeah, I'm only 13 days late.  =)

Resolutions seem overrated but we all end up doing it anyways.  Maybe we use it as an excuse for a conversation starter. 

I thought about doing two resolutions for 2011 but as you can tell from my prior New Year's resolution posts barely any of them fall through.  So, I will only do one.  That's only if NuBoo really works hard on not being Mr. Road Sensei (aka Road Rager).  Nah, I think I'll do mine regardless of Road Sensei.  Cause I can probably guess he's broken it like 50 times since the 1st of the year.  I witnessed a couple episodes and realize he's probably not going to change.  

So, my numero uno resolution for 2011 is to not yell as much.  If you know me personally, you know I get really passionate with expressing my emotions.  Let's leave it at that.  When I'm excited, I yell.  When I'm happy, I yell.  When I get mad, I yell.  When I get irritated, I raise my voice slightly....OK, OK, who we fooling - I YELL!  So from now on yelling would only be acceptable during cheering sessions such as 1.) on the couch while watching the Philadelphia Eagles (sorry 49ers) on television,  2.)  at AT&T ballpark rooting on the World Champs San Francisco Giants 3.) at a preschool, grade school, middle school, high school, or college graduation, 4.)  at a concert, 5.) at a loud club/bar attempting to communicate with the person directly in front of me and, 6.) anywhere watching a fight or rarely if I'm actually in a fight.  LOL!  This rule will also apply during instant messaging chats.  Just in case your wondering.....I yell via chat, as well.  Oh and let's not forget via text, too.  I'm horrible, right??!!

If I ever have the urge to yell, I just have to learn how to take a few deep breaths and just walk away for a few minutes.  Wish me luck.  This is going to be extremely difficult.  I dread it.  But, I'm almost certain it will better myself and my relationship with others.
