New year Sun, Jan 01, 2006
[I wonder if there's anyone with a website that hasn't written a post called "new year".  I'm so unoriginal.]

Like all dumb people, I have a New Year's resolution.  It's not to be a better person or to work out 4 times a week.  It's not to give more money to the homeless or climb the Eiffel Tower.  My New Year's resolution is to read the Bible cover to cover.  This is absolutely an obtainable goal, and it's something that I know I'll complete.  I've done it a couple times in the past, but the difference with this time is that I'm doing it with a few other people.  This could be good because we can talk about different things that we learned or different passages that we don't understand.  It's also good because we can encourage each other in doing it.  Another thing that's different about this time is that I'm planning on writing a brief summary of every chapter in the Bible.  Just a one-line thing.  (I also have a grandiose plan in the back of my head to computerize this as well, but I'm not sure how I want to do that just yet.)  This might also be accompanied by some themes or lessons learned.  I'm not quite sure about the details; I'll figure it out as I go.  One thing that always causes me problems with long-term tasks is that I'm mildly obsessive compulsive.  So if I start something one way, I'll want to finish it the same way.  I'm hoping to get away from that a little bit by allowing the process to change over time. #religion
