Resolutions, I've Had a Few

Have you ever made a New Year’s resolution? I have. I do. Every year I make a new New Year’s resolution and every year I break my resolutions.

I usually don't make them, but this year I decided to make a resolution for the 2010 New Year. I hope to do many things in this year, and I have to work hard to make all my wishes come true.

I decided to write down the things I have to do. First of all, I would like to learn English, because I want to learn more about the world.

I’m setting my computer monitor’s resolution and my T.V.’s resolution to “good” so that I can watch them. I decided to learn much more English from our good teacher. I decided to make a plan for my future.

I went to a New Year party, and I had a lot to drink. The next morning I was hung-over and I had forgotten all about it.

That's when I decided what my first New Year's resolution would be: Don't get drunk on New Year's Eve in 2010. Actually, that was my second resolution. My first one was to learn more English but the hangover made me forget that. So, my third resolution was...

Grin and Bear It

One very, very snowy day I decided to go for a walk. I put on a thick wool sweater. I put on a heavy coat over that.  Next, I put on some boots and gloves. Then I went outside.

I know it might sound weird but I was going out because of my job. I wasn't heading downtown to get to an office; I was planning to go into the woods to take pictures of the snowy forest.

The weather was fantastic. The snowy forest was so beautiful. I took a lot of pictures..

But then I realized I wasn't as warm as I thought I would be. So even though I was a wearing a woolly sweater and a coat, I decided to go back home to put on something extra.

I went outside to enjoy the snow but suddenly I saw a fallen electrical wire. I went to report it to the manager of the utility company.

We need a new logo. The current one doesn't represent the school anymore and it's in violation of Linden law. I already received a first warning. I replied by blackmail so we're ok for now but it can't go on like this much longer.

Mushroom man

ESL Group Story Writing Class December 13, 2009

Charlie has always had a very vivid imagination. When he was five years old he used to imagine that tracks that he saw in the snow were made by giants who were searching for him. Of course, the tracks were really just adult boot-prints. When he was 14, he wrote a short story about an alien who lived in his pencil. He got an A+ for that. Even now, at the age of 75, he still imagines strange things. NEXT

He imagined that he was a policeman in space. He thought about the beautiful girl who lived next door to him.  He thought, "I tried to befriend her but she stopped me several times. He wondered what made her do that.

Some days he imagines he is a little tiny boy living in a mushroom house. And he thought how his life might be if he had made the right choices.

All of these random thoughts raced through Charlie's head as he sat on his balcony gazing up at the stars. -the girl next door who rejected his attention, the dreams of being a space policeman and a tiny boy living in a mushroom...

Charlie decided to stop daydreaming forever. So he went to the pretty neighbor’s door and knocked. He wanted to ask her out. She opened the door and a wave of mushroom smell overwhelmed him. He shrank and became so small that he could have really lived inside a small mushroom. The neighbor didn't see him because he was too small and closed the door, but Charlie was inside.
