New Year's Resolutions

I drew this comic at the dawn of 2010. Here's how the somewhat autobiographical resolutions in the first panel turned out: I've failed miserably at getting organized. I still floss every night, as any non-hypocritical dental student should. I've written poetry, but it's been mostly goofy light verse. I've enjoyed ethnic food, smiled, practiced yoga, worked out, and volunteered, but only sporadically. I've enjoyed literary fiction (as pretentious as that sounds), especially the novels of Haruki Murakami. I can't bike to work - I'm not employed. And finally, I never actually quote bad movies - I only quote great movies that other people think are bad. My resolution for 2011: to keep going back and coloring old comics so I can repost them on my blog and make them available as posters.

Hahahaha, you made me laugh with your story, especially when I read
"I can't bike to work - I'm not employed" I was unemployeed so many times and then I enjoyed myself the most.
I hope you may colour many more nice drawings! Happy new year!

Haha, this was great! Especially the part where you say what you've done and what you haven't (or can't do).
(I like Murakami as well)
Happy new year!

I love your comics. This one is really great! Would it be ok with you if I feature it on my website one day soon? It is a post-breast cancer site. We know a lot about the stress of making resolutions!
