1. No toxic relationships - I did pretty well in 09 with this, but there are still some that remain. In 2010 I hope to finally have the strength to move away from those and accept the fact some people can't be helped, and not everyone has good intentions. It's not a failure on my part in giving up on people that only want to hurt or use me.

2. See myself as others do - My friends (most of them) see me as the sum of my parts, not with the same analytical gaze I do. Fixating on flaws I can't change is counter productive. I am imperfect. So is everyone else. Even a butterfly under a microscope is ugly. If someone doesn't like my flaws? Well, go bark up someone else's tree then. I'm busy and got to keep on movin..

3. Forgive. - I make a conscious effort to be good about this, because it does not by any means come naturally. But people make mistakes, myself included, and people do change, again..myself included. Be open to that possibility, and forgive accordingly. Carrying around resentment only hurts me anyway.

4. Be open. - I suck at this. I know. I like my walls, and fuck you I am not taking them down. They're a bitch to put back up after you turn out to be a dickhead. I will however resolve to lower the drawbridge now and then if you leave the weapons outside.

5. Spend more time with friends. - I spent a lot more time with friends this year than I have in a very long time, and I'm glad I did. I want to keep doing that this year.

6. Maintain my health and fitness level. - This is kind of a given. Keep running. Keep avoiding crap.

7. Save money - I spend a lot of money on crap I don't need. Cut back.

8. Learn - If the opportunity presents itself, get back into pharmacy per diem. At my present job, keep looking to learn new skills, and take on new projects.
