“I swear , I really tried”, I said to myself while gawking at my new year resolution diary. I began paging awkwardly through my year 2018 resolution list.
The first resolution: To stay fit and healthy
I paused for a while and then moved closer to the mirror to check my appearance- a protruded belly (Oh-no) , fuller cheeks (Oh-no-no) and heavier thighs (Oh-no-no-no)-unfit and overweight, that was definitely not on my new year’s check list. Sad and subdued , I went on to read my second resolution
The second resolution : To watch less telly
Although the time that I spent on watching some witless episodes on idiot box had reduced substantially, but it was more than nullified by the time I spent on binge watching some epic seasons on Netflix and Amazon Prime. With sheepish grin on my face, I moved on to read my third and final resolution.
The third resolution : To read more Classic Literature
Forget anything Classic, I had barely managed to read anything more than my mails on outlook.
The three failed results made me realize that I was clearly hopeless at resolutions. So, as the clock was ticking towards the New year’s eve , I turned over the page and started jotting my 2019 resolutions..
The first resolution:
To stay fit and healthy To Spend more time with my pillow
The Second resolution:
To watch less telly To watch the Game of Thrones Season 8 with complete sheathing against any spoilers this time
The Third resolution:
To read more Classic Literature To uninstall Outlook from my phone.
‘Now this looks like an achievable set of Resolutions’, I said to myself and welcomed the year 2019.
