Wishin’ and Hopin’ and Thinkin’ and Prayin’ on New Year’s Eve

Share your New Years resolutions!

Print Email

I have made the point that the eve of the Jewish New Year (aka the REAL New Year) is not about making resolutions, yelling WHOO! and making out. But there’s nothing stopping you from doing those things on December 31 at 11:59pm!

I’m working on a column about New Year’s resolutions and would love your input. Do you resolve anything? Why or why not? If you do have a resolution (or have ever had one), what prompted it? Was there a single moment of genesis? Please share your resolutions; please make them original, achievable and meaningful. They needn’t be Jewish, but if they are, that’s icing on the Clark. (Dick Clark, get it? That was a long way to go for a lame New Year’s joke. Sorry.) Post here or email me at

Half a Jew says:

* Use my time wisely (i.e. don’t f*** off when I should be studying like I did this year)
* Keep focused on my end goals – “Eyes on the Prize”
* Play with my cat more
* Most important, keep remembering to tell my best peeps I love them

The best new years resolution I ever made was to never turn down anything in the new year. Wanna go to a hockey game? Yes. Wanna join me for lunch? Yes. Wanna go on tour with me up the West Coast? Yes. That was the year that I did more, saw more and experienced more fun than I had ever imagined…and all cause I said “Yes” instead of “No”.

great suggestions!

My resolution, which had better be attainable, is to break the cycle of head lice infestation that has been plaguing us for the last two months, before the new year begins, and to have a lice-free year.

Oh, Amy, amen selah.

I’ve said that least 4581748 times. The problem this like that is they are just too compilcated for the average bird, if you know what I mean
