Stop doing that Midwestern thing where I feel compelled to explain the motivation behind my every action. (New me: “I am going to watch this DVD.” Old me: “I feel like I have done enough work today and my right knee is kind of hurting, so I think I will put this DVD in and watch it that is unless anyone minds?”)
Get over it.
Take free Cornell classes. One per semester! Scottish literature! Hooray!
Stop eating stinky cheese in my small shared office.
Visit Erin and George in San Francisco.
Call my grandma at lunch at least once a week.
Stop negatively comparing myself to David Foster Wallace.
Get involved in local board of elections and make them change their shitty signs and poorly designed voting material.
