A Basque in Boise

Urte Berri On

I’m not sure what will come out of this post. I mean, it’s New Year’s Day at 9:30 in the morning, and I am running on about 9 hours of sleep (since Thursday). You’ve been warned. However, I didn’t want to let this first day of 2011 go without posting something on the blog.

You know, the beginning of a new year is known for people making resolutions, vowing to change their ways, their weight, their life. I did not have time last year to make my list (I was too busy writing to Santa, who, by the way, kind of behaved in the end). Besides, what’s the point? I know I will screw it up. At least this way I don’t feel like a failure because I never swore I was going to be ‘txintxo’ (a good girl). Maybe I should have. Or maybe not. All of the above? I don’t know! (In case you were wondering, this is a Libra for you).

So I am not making any sense. Apparently I haven’t changed a bit since last year. That’s the problem. Albert Einstein said that “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” And he was a Nobel Prize and a freaking genious, ok? So who the hell am I to try to prove him wrong? The way I go about things doesn’t work, period. Well, more than things, people. I know I have to change that, and I have been putting it off, making excuses, putting the responsibility on the other people instead of bearing it myself. Time to change that, don’t you think?

I hope you all had a great time last night. I hope the New Year brings you all the things that last year didn’t. And I hope you won’t judge me too hard if my resolution to change fails miserably.

Thanks for passing by: ↓
