It seems everyone has an opinion on New Year’s resolutions. Some people scoff at them, some have the same resolution every year, some do the whole “I’m the new me! But also I’m back to eating Oreos by January 3rd” thing. Turns out the RoosRoast staff is pretty across the board as well! Here are some of our own thoughts for 2014.
“Launch the Metro Espresso Van running on propane and solar.
Balance improv/wacky, with business/serious.
Dress for success with and eye towards flow and hospitality.
Strive for dipping sauces and and finger food utilizing local.”
“Same as every year.” [A note from Gretchen: if you want to hear the rest of Zack's resolution, you can ask him yourself. I'm not writing it here.]
“I’m not really into resolutions. I tend to never follow through, and setting myself up for a failure like that sets me into a DEEP and LONG-LASTING depression. (Think: Re-watching the entire Gilmore Girls series, eating nothing but sour cream and onion chips and mashed potatoes for days, curled up with some less than enthused felines, 24/7 boxer shorts.) BUT this year I will set a few for myself. They are: pass my classes, keep pullin’ a mean long pull, talk to my grandparents more (They’re awesome! Why don’t I talk to them all the time? They’ve LIVED.) start a roosroast acapella group (re: Glee [John and Lizzie are already in.]) ”
“Knock off my habit of looking at baby animals on the internet. It’s a waste of time, and it’ll only lead to disappointment if I ever become a mother.”
“This year I resolve to make more time for those I care about. ”
“I’m going to make a tobaggan.”
“My new years resolution is to consume all of the oatmeal that is in my cupboard because it’s always there and I always forget to eat it and it’s delicious and I should not neglect it so.”
“Starting January 1st I am going to set aside a jar, and everyday I am going to contribute to the jar by writing down one thing good that has happened to me throughout the course of the day. On December 31st, 2014 I will open the jar and read all the amazing things that happened to me throughout the year. ”
“I have a 2014 reading list that I probably won’t get even halfway through. Typically it only takes me until mid-March to realize how many things I want to read more than those that were included on the list in the first place. Setting myself up for failure 2014.”
“In 2014 I would like to explore the world of cultured foods.”
