Let’s look back: I’m not sure that I accomplished much of note, other than that I made it another 365 days. (This year, with 366, will be a challenge!)
*I trolled my hypocritical Congress people, but they remain hypocrites, spouting Christian tropes but supporting the least religious, most immoral man in the White House.
*I sent 80 or so students out into the world to, I hope, change it for the better, but that was hardly my accomplishment. They were going there anyway — I just tried to keep from being an obstacle.
*I trapped and killed four or five mice over the course of the year. I also killed a mosquito by clapping it with my hands. My wife considered both an accomplishment.
*I carried a glass of red wine along our white carpet about 50 times without spilling a drop. Why she wants to bitch about that 51st time is beyond me.
OK, that was cathartic. I’ve achieved more than I thought. I don’t normally make resolutions. But for fun, I plan to:
*Sleep more and eat less.
*Read more and tweet less.
*Drink about the same.
*Be kinder and be better.
*Help 80 students prepare for the real world.
