1st NY Tagged

My very first 2008 tagged came from Ella, talking about New Year's Resolution!

Start Copy Here*

When it comes to New Year’s Resolutions we seem to fall into four categories:
1) quite serious about them,
2) be flippant about them,
3) do it because we feel pressured to, or
4) do not do them. So, the purpose of this little game is to let us know which category you are in.

Copy from "*Start Copy Here*" through "*End Copy Here*" and post it. Before "*End Copy Here*" tell us who you are, your site(s) (with link) and your New Year’s Resolution, or not.

Then tag as many others as you like, from one to your entire blogroll, your choice.
If you like, create an intro paragraph to your post that also acknowledges who tagged you.


Jeanne - The Callalily Space - My resolutions are to have more time with my daughter, so doing only parttime job, have more rest in my life, keep healthy. That was the important things, there are another things that i want to reach in 2008, i have so many plans...

Juliana – Juliana's Site - My New Year's resolutions are looking for a part time job, keep blogging, and learn to cook and bake.

Michelle - Rusin Roundup - 1. Learn to be happier and accept myself for who I am, 2. Is to lose about 25 lbs., and 3. Is to stop smoking.

Karen - Grow Rich Along With Me - My resolution for next year is to achieve $3K per month passive income by the end of 2008.

Mel - Attitude, the Ultimate Power & Complain Complain Complain - “I don’t need no stinking resolutions.” I never hold to them anyway so why frustrate myself by starting them now.

Sandee - Comedy Plus - I don't need no stinking resolutions either. Years and years ago I did them because everyone else did, but not once did I follow through. Why set yourself up for failure?

Lynda - lynda's loft - My resolution is to see resolve to that which needs resolution. Like Mel and Sandee, I feel that resolutions give us more stress, however, being a person who sets goals each year, isn't that the same thing as a resolution??? Goals vs. resolutions? Goals are more general and allow for more time to complete them, a resolution requires a mind-set and immediate action, which is not always feasible... Well, that's my story and I'm stickin' to it...

Amelia - Amel's Realm - This is a list of my New Year's Resolution:
1. Health: Continue exercising twice a week, eat enough veggies and fruit, have enough rest, take vitamin C regularly and women's multivitamin during my period.
2. Spiritual: Improve my Daily Bread reading routine and my prayer life and learn more from God's Word.
3. Financial: Continue to make money online (my goal is getting €100 per month at least), be more creative in writing posts, and save most of the money.
4. General Life: Continue to learn Finnish AND practice it as best and often as I can, try out more baking and cooking recipes, continue to maintain and share positive thoughts, continue to learn to control my thoughts, continue to learn to catch myself before I start complaining and count my blessings instead, continue to stop and cherish all the little moments in life that oftentimes go unnoticed, and continue to feed my inner child and last but not least, continue to ENJOY my life thoroughly.

Max - MAX - My New Year's resolutions are to dedicate more time to my friends; to finally be able to read "Der Spiegel" in German; to be calm when organizing my marriage; to go one last time to my favourite club and dance the night away; and continue to be happy!

Eric - Speedcat Hollydale - I love chicken. Problem is that I really never get to have enough chicken! My New Year's resolution is to enact "Chicken Tuesday". On this day I will eat only chicken, blog about chicken, and promote chickens all over the world. (hormone free) Join me, won't you?

Marzie - Mariuca & Mariuca's Perfume Gallery - My resolution for 2008 is to enjoy a healthier lifestyle and to expand my Perfume Collection.

Sindi- Life Is A Roller Coaster - My resolution is to complain less, pray more and be a little more thankful for what I have.

Judy - Sugar Queen's Dream - My New Year's resolution is:To take better care of my health.To eat better, well at least 3 meals a day, I'm lucky these days if I stop for one meal a day....To help make the world a better place to live, I love the human race, but think there’s always room for change.To be generous until it hurts.To live each day as if it's my last.To make a book of our personal family recipes and traditions for each of my 3 my children, so that the traditions and family cooking can be passed on in my family line long after I'm gone and finally.......To help more with the local Human society, Animals like little kids can not fend for themselves so it's up to each of us to take care of our pets and to step in and care for all animals.....I hope that through me I can encourage my Children to be better adults and in turn to raise the Children they have or will have, to be good people with good, sound & solid values.... Peace!

Adrian - First Time Dad - My New Year’s Resolution for 2008 is to be a better father…now I don’t usually make New Year's resolutions because I never keep them but this one I better keep! Happy New Year to one and all!

Colin - Life - New Years Resolution? No way...Better to achieve more throughout the year rather than pander to the whims of a one day 'wishful thought'

Mauro - 1 Million Love Messages - My resolution for next year are:
1. Change my job (maybe work online). I'm really unhappy in the actual one.
2. Dedicate more time to my family and girlfriend... maybe start to get ready for our wedding :-) 3. Work hard in 1 Million Love Messages and reach 2500 Love messages (or more) in the end of 2008.

MidgetManOfSteel - Mental Poo - To get out of dealing with people who I have no desire in helping at the job I’m doing…catch the eye of someone who can see that I can write and be funny…and get my own ticket to happiness from my humor….and a Ferrari. While I’m doing this, I resolve to get a Ferrari.

Stacy - My Thoughts - My New Year’s Resolution for 2008 - Is to be more understanding to my children and to other people, Not to curse at others while I am driving, try to eat right and exercise, try to volunteer in my community, and to believe more in my spiritual side.

Jason - & - Although, I normally don't do New Year's Resolutions (because I find it as an excuse to actually do something I should've already been doing), this year I will plan on giving back to the blogging community, especially my audience. I'm not sure how I will do it yet, but I definitely will.

Kesa - Little Aussie Cynic - My New Years Resolution is the standard..... to finally get off the smokes and to loose 8kg.... both which are possible just difficult.....Happy New Year to you and yours….Aussie

Ann - A Nice Place in the Sun - "To let the rest of my life begin as soon as possible."

Agnes - My Favorite Things My New Year's Resolution is to save money to build a house for us, save up for my pregnancy, take each day at a time, no hurrying,less worrying, less complaining and always be grateful for the blessings that I received. I also want to be less analytical of people, I can't help it, I like to interpret behavior so I hope to let it go.

Ella - Journey to this Thing called LIFE - I was not doing this since I finished school. But would like to give this a try. I may fail on some but they are worth trying. Better have plans than none at all. So here is my take - my new year's resolutions are: 1) Create a plan for our financial indepence by writing an attainable goal with commint dates, saving religiously & spending wisely (buy needs and not wants), 2) Scrapbook more- at least once a week (had been on T-mode lately), 3)Update my blog more frequently - at least once a week, 4) Be more patient - count 1-50 before getting mad, 5) stay healthy by eating right and exercising more frequently (to gain a pound is a sin) and, 6) Gain or Lose weight (get preggy or get sexy, hehe) and 7) Continue to Count and share our blessings!

Me-anne- Meannesworld-I always have my New Year's Resolution as the new year unfolds, sometimes I'm serious about it but on the process I would fail, anyway this is fun, here's my share: 1) I will try to pay out all my bills on time and start cancelling some of my credit cards and save two for my scrapbooking and travel needs (har har har) 2)I will try to get serious with my prayer time and update my journaling every day-specifically have a 20 minutes conversation with the LORD seriously and go further even as time passes 3) I will definitely try my best to apply what I've learned in driving school and get over the fear that I have last 2006 and learn to drive without my hubby's help 4) Finish my pending scrapbook projects by 2008 and 5) Get pregnant and have a baby boy this time.

Christmas Messages

I have a very low end cp it N6630, it would clog and cant afford to receive more than 200 text messages. I have a habit of jotting down all the messages I got for Christmas, New Year and even on my Birtday...talking about ka-cornihan hehehe. Anyways that's me- here are some of the messages I was able to write on my journal:

-there's no shop that sells kindness, we must build it within;
we can transplant hearts, be we cannot transplant a warm hearts;
a blessed Christmas and a grace filled New Year- Me-anne M. Cruz

-a Christmas Prayer for you
Psalmb 67:2
May God be gracious to us and bless us;
May God's face shine on us
May the people praise you God
May all the people praise you
The earth has yielded its harvest
Gor our God blesses us
May God bless us still
That the ends of the earth may
Revere God Amen!

May you have a wonderful Christmass filled with peace, healing and wisdome!
-denis dayrit

Happy Christmas to you and to your family. May our good Lord shower you with all His Blessings - aphol

May happiness be at your door today. May it come early and stay forever and bring gifts of good fortune and good health to the whole family.

God's blessing may come as a surprise and how much you receive depends on how much your heart can believe. May you be blessed beyond what you expect!

And a lot lot more messages! Merry Christmas...Next I'm going to post my Kaya 8 entry which i only posted last December 30-so so late!
