New Years

I’m honestly not sure how I wound up posting on three of the four major holidays of the season, being that I am the most ba-humbug person in the press, but I did so I’m going to make the best of it.  So, first of all, happy New Years, I hope you all have your New Years’ resolutions sorted out.

Personally I’ve given up on New Years’ resolutions.  It seems like a lot people have the same attitude about the holidays, this is the time for us to indulge in excessive gluttony about which we will feel extremely guilty come New Years Day and make a resolution to work off all the calories we stuffed into our mouths over the holidays.  Of course these resolutions rarely last past January and then we wait a year to start the whole cycle over again.  A couple of years ago I got tired of that, so I decided that if I simply controlled myself over the holidays, didn’t overeat to excess et all, then I wouldn’t have to worry about feeling guilty and making a New Years’ resolution.

So far this has been working out pretty well for me.  I admit to the occasional extra helping over the Christmas season but I have yet to ‘fill myself to bursting’ and I have been exercising regularly, so far I feel pretty good about the whole holiday season and not guilty at all.  I didn’t overspend, didn’t overeat (much), and didn’t laze around for days on end doing nothing.  Honestly it feels pretty good to not feel guilty about the holidays, to have enjoyed myself with a reasonable degree of discipline and come out of it none the worse for wear.

Now if only I could get the rest of my life in order things would be just dandy.  Anyway, hope you all are having a great holiday and enjoying yourselves thoroughly.

I hate writing these things. Ok, a little bit about me. I split my time between this world and other worlds so I'm only here about 25% to 50% of the time. Other times my body might be here (or you never know it might not) but I am off somewhere else having strange and usually pretty horrible adventures. I consider myself a scholar of Christian Theology and of Religion in general, I love learning about other people's belief systems. I think that Shinto is fascinating and I'm obsessed with the theology of sin...and with monkeys...I don't know why I'm obsessed with monkeys but I blame Gus...if you know him you'll understand that, if you don't then...well...I blame Gus. Anyway, I'm the one of the blog that needs to be censored the most so if there's anything posted that you find offensive it was probably me. I think that my brain doesn't really work the way it's supposed to but that's an issue for a whole other time. I have two degrees, a B.S. in Religion and an M.Div. in leadership. I enjoy a great many things some of which include writing (gee, what a surprise), martial arts, anything media that has a good story to tell, cooking, discussing/reading/occasionally writing about Christian theology, General theology, religious belief systems, philosophy, etc. I also enjoy reading medieval and previous magical texts and studying the history, practice, and beliefs about magic from around the world. I don't practice magic and if you want to know my personal beliefs on the subject you can email me, however the intersection of magic and religion is a very interesting topic.
