It’s almost 2013. 2013! Can you feel it? I’m feeling it. I think 2013 is going to be great. Fantastic. Wonderful, even.
Some big things are coming up for me, in 2013. I’m graduating from college this Spring! Ah! I know. Yikes!
I’m moving out of my parents’ house! Ah! Independence! Frightening.
I’m moving out of Michigan! More yikes. More scary.
I’m getting a really cool job somewhere, that I really like, and that pays me an adequate sum of money for my time! Yay!
These are, of course, my plans. Things could change. Things will change. 2013 is coming, and bringing with it new, exciting life events!
Instead of looking back at 2012, like a lot of people are doing right-about-now, I’m looking forward. For once. Things are going to be different in 20-13! Oh. Twenty-thirteen doesn’t have quite the ring to it as twenty-twelve. Or, do I just have to get used to saying it? Maybe it three or four months I’ll like it better, it’ll roll off the tongue… anyway.
Basically, next year is the time to do all the things you thought about/wanted to do this year, but didn’t have the chance/time/bravery to do. What will you be doing in twenty-thirteen? (See, it almost works… a few more repetitions, and it’ll be super smooth-sounding.)
Instead of making resolutions, I’m making plans. And by plans, I mean that I’m making this list, of:
THINGS I WANT TO DO IN TWENTY-THIRTEEN
Start a Podcast!
Travel out of the USA
Graduate from College
Move out/Get an apartment
Get a J-O-B!
Write a movie script
PUT DOWN THE CELL PHONE
Make eye contact (not in a creepy way!)
Submit writing to magazines/journals
Be in a play/musical at school!
Be more SOCIAL
Take more pictures! (Instagrams DO NOT COUNT)
Learn to Surf!
Learn to Ski!
Volunteer AT LEAST ONCE
Sell stuff on Etsy again
Random Acts of Kindness!
World Book Night!
Be Brave, Honest, and Strong
Whew. Good thing 2013 is a full year, eh? Anyway, I think these goals rollover into the next year. 😉
Is the ball dropping yet? Twenty-Thirteen, here we come! (See, it works now! Twenty-Thirteen!)
Ok, I lied. I just can’t walk away from 2012 without a word goodbye! It’s been a great year. Here are a few of my favorite posts from the past year. Now I’ll see you in 2013! OK. Bye.
