** I cleaned out my entire journal and deleted all of my old posts. A new year is on the way, and I feel this is going to be a fantastic one... I take that back... It's going to be one of the best years of my life. I can feel it. Over the next few days, I plan to compile a list of resolutions. I've heard some people say they are avoiding resolutions this year because they never keep them. However, I believe goals and hopes help drive us to be better. I'd rather make them and attempt them, than to give up before trying.

I don't always get a lot of comments here, and that doesn't bother me. I usually keep up with most of you on your journals and posts; and for the most part, I talk to you as often as you post. However, I've noticed my flist has grown, if not by people than by sheer number of posts, and it is almost a full-time job to reply to everyone. With this in mind, I'm going to have to reduce commenting to once or twice a week. Please don't think I've lost interest in your life, but I have to manage my own just a little bit better.

** Also, I'm in a few RP and Blog communities right now. Although I like them all, some of the pressure has taken the fun out of them. I can't treat my RP's as more important than the novel I'm writing for publication. I may have to back out of one or two. I plan to drop it or wrap it up by the new year.

** I've already made several changes with my journal as far as design and mood theme. Now that Christmas is over, I'm looking for a new default icon. I have almost 100 icons to choose from, but none of them seem just right. I have room to add a hundred more icons so if anyone can direct me toward some new icons please do. I'll take reccomendations.

**I saw Marley and Me today with several friends. It was a sweet movie
. I teared up when I realized the dog was going to die; but by the time they started to euthanize him, almost everyone in the theater was crying...and when I say crying, I mean they were sobbing. There was so much sniffing going on that I felt like laughing. I tried so hard to hold my laugh in that when it finally escaped it was a loud snort and bark of laughter. I know everyone around me thought I was a cold hearted $#@$, but that was not the case. If I had been alone and unaware of anyone else crying, I would have cried too...I'm sure of it.
