New Year's Reflections and Resolutions

Lose weight. Remember to floss every night. Give up an hour of TV a week. Stop swearing. Eat more vegetables.

New year's resolutions are everywhere and everybody seems to have one, even when they claim otherwise. As the calendars turn over it's hard to resist the urge to reflect on the past and look toward making your future even better. 

Even though I think procrastinating less, spending more time with friends and family, and making my blog into what I imagine it to be would be great things for me to focus on this year, I have no new year's resolutions. Why? Because 2013 is overwhelming and life-changing enough for me. This is the year I graduate from college and for the first time in my life, no longer call myself a student. In 2013 I will have my first post-grad job, move into my own place, and follow my passions instead of follow-up on my homework. In the meantime I will be redesigning this blog, training for my first half-marathon, chasing PRs in CrossFit, and hanging in there for my last few months of college.

With that said, it doesn't mean that the new year isn't a great time to evaluate how we live and how we can make ourselves and our impact better.
