Good Decisions Binge!
After a weekend of shopping for beautiful clothes we didn’t need and eating desserts with the word Xanga! in them, Jenius and I decided we needed to start making better decisions.
Not that there’s anything wrong with buying beautiful things or eating the occasional deep-fried cheesecake (hence the Xanga!), but we figured we should try to stagger them… and maybe balance them with a banana or something.
So we made a pact to make better decisions.
And that sounded boring and grown-up and awful, so I decided to add the word Binge! to it and make it more exciting!
Here are some things we’re doing to act more like adults for our Good Decisions Binge!
Get in shape! I don’t believe in diets, but I do subscribe to the “eat less, move more” philosophy every once in a while, so yesterday we joined the YMCA. Also we bought Just Dance 2 for the Wii and hilarity ensued—though we did get a pretty good sweat going.
Spend less money! Mainly because, you know, we’re broke-ass college grads who don’t have very much in the first place.
Go to bed! Without 30-page papers to write and a house full of prone-to-party college women, getting to bed at a reasonable hour is much more doable, but we’ve still got plenty of party in us, so we’re having to push a little to get our butts to bed.
Be more informed about what’s going on in the world! We are now officially a household that subscribes to the newspaper. How adult is that? Also, we listen to NPR sometimes. It’s a step.
Stop eating crap! Or at least less crap.
