Thirty Somethings...

I've never been one for New Year's Resolutions. I mean, I have them, but they're generally of the ridiculously attainable mocking variety. This year's? I aspire to be more annoying on Facebook. If you're not already my friend, I betcha want to be my Facebook friend now. Really, I have no intention of being more annoying on Facebook. I mean, any more than I might already be.

But, thinking on this whole New Year's Resolution thing, I might actually give it a go with a real one this year. I want to write more. And, as always happens when I get a hankering for brain spills onto keyboard, this here blog is the medium.

That said, forgoing writing for so long, there are gobs of thoughts yearning for the spotlight and I think a little discipline is in order. I'm not usually much of a Meme-er, but this one seems like a timely homework assignment I'll willingly embrace. Something structured to get me from mass chaos to order to my ultimate goal. Free-flow. I stumbled upon it on Stella's blog. I'm jumping on the wagon, beer in hand. Um, this is the bandwagon, right? I've no business on any other wagon. *Glug*

It is officially called Thirty Days of Truth. And I wouldn't be Zube if I didn't rail a bit against the orderliness of it, quest for discipline notwithstanding. I don't know how many days it will take me. I also don't promise to tell the truth. Some of the questions strike me as, hm, a little stupid? My eyes rolled a bit when I read them. I'll be honest about the eyeroll-worthiness of those and make up gargantuan lies to make my answers interesting. So, my version of Thirty Days of Truth is hereby incarnated Thirty Somethings. But I hereby promise that at the end of this exercise there will be thirty answers. In, hopefully, not as many years.

The point of it all? I answer a question with each post. The questions are thus:

Day 01 → Something you hate about yourself.
Day 02 → Something you love about yourself.
Day 03 → Something you have to forgive yourself for.
Day 04 → Something you have to forgive someone for.
Day 05 → Something you hope to do in your life.
Day 06 → Something you hope you never have to do.
Day 07 → Someone who has made your life worth living for.
Day 08 → Someone who made your life hell, or treated you like shit.
Day 09 → Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.
Day 10 → Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.
Day 11 → Something people seem to compliment you the most on.
Day 12 → Something you never get compliments on.
Day 13 → A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days. (write a letter.)
Day 14 → A hero that has let you down. (letter)
Day 15 → Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.
Day 16 → Someone or something you definitely could live without.
Day 17 → A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.
Day 18 → Your views on gay marriage.
Day 19 → What do you think of religion? Or what do you think of politics?
Day 20 → Your views on drugs and alcohol.
Day 21 → (scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?
Day 22 → Something you wish you hadn’t done in your life.
Day 23 → Something you wish you had done in your life.
Day 24 → Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles and artists and letter)
Day 25 → The reason you believe you’re still alive today.
Day 26 → Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so, when and why?
Day 27 → What’s the best thing going for you right now?
Day 28 → What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?
Day 29 → Something you hope to change about yourself. And why.
Day 30 → A letter to yourself, tell yourself EVERYTHING you love about yourself

Some are pretty dumb, right? And I'm mentally exhausted just reading the list, so I'll start the project another day. And that's the truth.
