Welcome 2012. May You Be Everything (and more) That I Hope You’ll Be

Published January 1, 2012 - 7 Comments

Well…  it’s here!  2012 is upon us.  I can hear the fireworks booming outside.  At first I wasn’t sure what was going on.  Was someone banging on that door that’s not supposed to open anymore onto the roof?  But then it came to me… fireworks!  Oh… duh…   If it wasn’t so cold out, I’d go take a look.  But yeah… this is January in Canada… I’ve seen fireworks before.

I’ve challenged myself to a little psychological duel… I am going to attempt to go an entire 30 days without two of my favourite vices… The first is Coke.. which is no big surprise.. although it will still be hard to go 30 days.  I don’t think that I’ve ever made it that far before.  The next is Twitter!  Yup… my favourite social networking site has been chewing up a ton of my time lately… and at the end of the day, my personal productivity has very little to show for it.   So it’s time to take a little step back, and focus some of that time on other things.

It will be interesting to see which one of those two things gives me the hardest time.  I think Twitter will be the initial problem.  I spend a ton of time on that site.  I love to throw out random Stephenisms even if I don’t log in to see if people are reading them.  I love to post songs that I’m listening to.  Nope… not anymore!  Not this month.  No more foursquare updates.  No more iTweetMyTunes.  No more MyFitnessPal updates.  And unlike other times when I’ve taken a little break from tweeting, I will not be logging in at all to check out what’s going on.  It’s Twitter-free for me!  At least for the month of January… or until I cave.

Twitter… Coke… Twitter… Coke…

Which one will get to me first?

Let’s find out, shall we!
