OMG Another one!

Yes, this is the beginning of a roll. They say that it takes 21 days straight to form a habit, so this means I have 19 days to go to make this a habit. Does this mean I want to blog everyday? Maybe not, but I want to do this for at least 21 days and then go from there. It's not a huge feat but also not a small task. If it's too easy, then it's also too easy to drop. With a good amount of effort and dedication it's harder to let go because of the energy invested. That's how my theory goes, when in fact when you are procrastinator you just drop it or leave it for later. Not good.

So, with that intro and theme I want to go onto how I'm doing with my new year's resolutions I set last December. It's hard to look at these because I haven't done a very good job on the ones that matter. Here is the break down and I will rate myself from 1(lowest) to 10(highest) on how I think I've done the first half of the year:
