After reviewing my 2008 Resolutions, I realized that a number of them were hard to quantify. And I love to quantify things. I look at things objectively, not subjectively. So this year my goals will be more concrete, more measurable. Here we go, in no particular order:
Are there any websites that help you keep monitor and keep track of New Year’s resolutions?
Unrelated Note: The other day I posted a glowing review of the new movie Slumdog Millionaire. The movie is getting a lot of press for the Academy Awards. Why is that? Just because it’s a good movie, you say? Nope. It’s the opera scene in the middle of the film that makes it an Oscar contender, just like in Milk. Is the opera scene in Slumdog necessary? Aside from showing some kids stealing purses, absolutely not. As a viewer, you’re treated to about 30 seconds of alternating shots of some opera that the average moviegoer doesn’t know and the main character’s facial expression as he reacts to the opera. Important to furthering the story? Nope. Important for the film’s Oscar chances? Absolutely.
