Why I Dont Make Resolutions

I don't make resolutions because I don't keep them. That is it!

Thinking back, I have never keep a New Year's Resolution; however, throughout my 20's I have always made them.

Instead of making resolutions, sit and plan for your year.

Map out your major goals and your sub- goals.

Chart how you are going to accomplish these goals.

Actually, get up and work on accomplishing your goals.

Vision board your goals, dreams and aspirations.

Never give up even if you feel like you cannot make it.

The Report- The Challenge Tag

First of all, what was i thinking???!!!! I guess I wasn't. I now think the day i thought about this challenge was the day i went a little insane. One thing i know for sure is that i have a new found respect for naturalist. I don't know how they do it. Overall, I had FUN.


See what i mean, it's a lot of hair
So lets start the report. I started my day by preparing breakfast and i started tidying the house (nothing strange).I then went on to combing my daughter's hair. She has a full head of hair that is often daunting to comb. Therefore,  I often ask the neighbour to comb it. But i decided to take on the challenge since it was a day for challenges. It was fun because we made a game out of stringing the beads.

The beads are out for the summer


I started to tackle some of the books on my summer reading list.I read a lot for work, so i often do not read for pleasure. These just some of the books on my book stand next to my bed.

LEFT: Beauty (must look fabulous), Wine of Astonishment (Post-colonial Literature) and Overcoming Fatigue (must know how to deal with the stress)

Yes, the glasses is tested.

After five i started to polish my nails. It is a work in progress. I am always the person who pays to get the hair and nails done. Just because it is more convenient for me. But, i am trying to be fugal (smile). I think at this point it is a little more than being fugal; i realize that i am loving the process of doing beauty treatments for myself by myself.


Now the hours rolled away and i made it to 12 midnight without using the computer.

My Laptops.

However, being the nocturnal creature that i am, i had to watch my t.v. shows. So,  i guilty turned on Big Berta  at about 12: 10 am.  It was a hard decision to make (not really). I thought i could do it but it turns out that my life, as it is right now, is intertwined with technology. However, i have now come to realized that i need some balance. From this experience, i find that i am not so quick to turn on my small laptop as i get up. I find that i have changed my computer use pattern somewhat. Now, i am powering up in the evening to night.

I hope you too try the challenge.

  11. Hey this is Jacky of the Smash Bravo Team from Sammy Makes Six, following you back! I have no idea how you managed to go so long without your computer, mime is a;ways on, and when IO say always I mean ALWAYS. Even if i'm sitting watching tv, i still have the laptop right next to me, with the headphones jammed into my ear so I can hear a song whenever I feel like it. And my day starts out like at 9 a.m and doesn't end until 3 a.m so that's alot of my computer being on. I know that's bad and everything, but I can't help it.

  12. I loved the recap, you did a great job with your daughter's hair. :)
