Jake’s 2009 New Year’s Resolutions

New Year’s Resolutions…everyone makes them and it’s fair to say that most brake them. It is hard to create or change a habit, and that is one reason I think people don’t stick to their resolutions. However, I also think that the level of accountability has something to do with it as well. The more people they have to answer to, the more pressure there is on them to stick to it. So, with that said, I am posting my 2009 New Year’s resolutions (the one’s I feel comfortable sharing) here on my blog in a personally recorded video format (and text). This way, I have to answer to the world wide web instead of just myself, family, and close friends. Enjoy!

My friend Clark has helped inspire this post and idea of recording our resolutions, and has done the same thing. Thanks for your help and support Clark.

What about carbonated/caffeinated beverages in solid or semi-solid forms? Like if you freeze a mountain dew, can you then eat it?

I guess that would be okay every once in a while…like every Wednesday or something like that. Lol.

I’m Rachel a 30 year old teacher in Canada and I’ve read your blog. I found very interesting the part where you talk about “creating yourself” I would like to know what website or program you used to create a cartoon version of your daughter and yourself. I thought it was really cute and it could be useful for an activity in my classroom with my students who are learning English as a second language! Thank you in advance for sharing that information.
