2013. Time to get off your ass.

Congratulations! The very fact that you're reading this means that you, like me, survived the Mayan Apocalypse. Which, when you think about it, feels pretty cool. But, more importantly than giving us that feeling of invulnerability that inevitably succeeds each unsuccessful doomsday, it gives us something FAR more important. That kick in the ass that tells us life should be taken advantage of. So, when it's strategically placed so close to the start of a new year, it's hard not to see it as an invitation to make the next twelve months (And, if you're following my logic here, by extension the rest of your life) just completely amazing. 

It's no small secret that 2012 was, for me personally, the happiest year I've had in a very long time. And that's why I believe 2013 can be even better. 

So, because I believe in making your own awesomeness, to ensure is fabulous, I sat down on New Years Eve and wrote 13 things down that I'd love to accomplish in the next year. (Thirteen. Like the year. Get it?) They weren't massive things- one was simply to finally read Paradise Lost. There WERE some big ones on there, but they'll just be all the more fulfilling when they're accomplished. 

Step two, after compiling the list, was to seal it in an envelope marked 31st December, 2013. Next New Years Eve, I intend to open the envelope and see how many of these things I managed to achieve. If I've crossed them all off... well, I think it's safe to say, that would entail a particularly epic year. 

I mean, this year, we survived the end of the world. It's all up hill from there, right?

Happy New Year!
