For the entire winter break so far (and before it started, really), I have been incredibly, terribly, completely lazy. I keep letting my apartment fall into disarray (okay, maybe total disaster is more like it). I sleep later and later, and I haven’t been exercising. I haven’t done anything on my long to do list – not even any work on my online class (which I really do feel guilty about; that guilt manifested in a dream last night where I failed almost all my classes from this semester and kept showing up to my finals an hour late). It’s sufficient to say I’m a bit of a mess.
So, in the next couple days, I’m going to have my last 3-episode-in-one-sitting binge of Criminal Minds and eat that entire bag of Cheetos I just bought yesterday, and then, when 2011 hits, I’ll become a real live functioning person again.
So, of course, the first step is to make a list.

1- I will exercise.
