When I used to gamble, which was infrequently due to the whole ‘being poor’ thing, my favorite roulette numbers were 13 and 27. I chose them all the time, and did pretty damn well. Now, a lot of people laugh at the idea of luck and numerology, and those that do believe, I often laugh at them. However, this year, in the year 2013, I am going to turn 27.
What?!?! It’s like magic. And I didn’t even put those two things together until like two months ago. Anyway, to quote every drunk girl prancing around with their sixth Smirnoff Ice tonight, “This is my year!”
So, lets get to the changes. The majesty of New Years is that it’s a fresh start for everyone. It’s like every person in the world just got back from Vegas. Whatever happened in 2012 stays in 2012. So here are my goals for 2013:
Health. Just, like, be better at health. Be in better health? Health this shit up, yo. Cut out sugars and fried food and… you know what this entails. At some time this year, I want to hike Half-Dome at Yosemite and participate in a Zombie Run in September. And to do either of these things, I gotta go back to my old days in senior year of high school. I can… yeah, I can do that. Sure.
Productivity. I am going to write. I am going to make movies. I am going to create. Every single day, as much as possible without fail. I am going to work myself to the bone, and do you know why? Because making art and being creative isn’t digging at ditch or counting away the hours as a register jockey. This shit is fun, and if it isn’t you’re doing it wrong. And if I have to have fun until I’m exhausted, oh woe is me.
Skill. I want a skill I don’t have yet. I’m just going to work on it, over and over, until I’m good at it. I’m not sure what yet. Here are some options: Playing the Guitar (never really even picked one up before), Origami (I have some basics, but I want to be able to make ANYTHING), Cooking and/or Baking (They say Cooking is an art and baking is a science, so it will probably be cooking.) I got the idea for learning a new skill when I read a great article by David Wong of Cracked.com and if you check it out, you WILL be inspired.
I’m sure there are other things, other goals and objectives, but not resolutions that I need to change. These are things I am RESOLVING to accomplish and just watch out, because *drunken sassy snapping* THIS IS MY YEAR!
