Anger

Sometimes, I have a hard time controlling my anger.  And oftentimes, when I get really stressed, my brain converts my stress into anger instead of something more productive.

I don't like this about myself.  And I know the people I love don't like this about me.  

I don't know how to change that, but I'd like to learn.

"Unique Baby Names"

I love names and I'm always looking to learn more about them.

My quandary is this: I cannot find a good, recent source of "new" names.

I tend to enjoy "baby name" sites because they usually include long lists of names that I can scan through and pick the ones I like the most.

But right now, it looks like I've already heard all of the names.

I'm really craving new names for my brain.

My mission right now is to find a new website that lists unique baby names, a website that I haven't already analyzed.

Resolutions for 2014

I hate goals, but for some reason, I have always been fascinated by the "fresh slate" offered by the turn of a new calendar year.  I am usually not keen on changing myself or my behaviors, but I decided this year to give it a try.  Minimally.  I won't be doing anything too impressive, but I thought a few simple resolutions would be worthwhile.  If I don't achieve them, I won't be upset, but these are some things I would like to do:

I am going to try not to fight with the people I love.

I am going to try not to hold grudges.

I am going to try to always use kind words.

I am going to try to be polite to everybody.

I am going to try to work hard and make sufficient money.

I am going to try to get an average of over 85% in all my courses.

I am going to try to learn how to comfortably run 5 km by my birthday.

I am going to try to keep being organized with my schedule.

I am going to try to finish at least one extracurricular course of interest.


Happy New Year!
