New Year’s resolutions—in the last few years, I’ve found them to be an entertaining way to change myself. I believe it started with a lighthearted resolution to never repeat myself when someone heard what I clearly said the first time. It was a fun resolution that I was aware of all year long. My resolution in 2012 was to be more fit and strong, which I feel like I’m still working on and with positive results. Now we’ve entered 2013—the year of creativity—and I’m already dead-set on that path.
I want to do so many different things in 2013 and I found that the common theme between all of them is creativity. Whether it’s improving my creative writing skill, utilizing new recipes in my cooking, beginning to paint, or trying out homebrewing and pickling for the first time, I want to be more creative.
I’ve made it a goal to publish writing on my blog or elsewhere at least once a week. In January alone, I’ve created a marinara sauce and a sharp cheddar cream sauce from Martha Holmberg’s cookbook Modern Sauces, which is full of delicious sauces. I’m halfway through Dan Amrich’s book, Critical Path: How to Review Videogames for a Living, which has given me plenty of insight on how to write better reviews for video games as well as offering great tips for writing in general. I definitely recommend both of those books! (Major props to Yaicha for buying the book and getting it signed for me)!
The year has started off nicely and I only expect it to get better. Do you have a New Year’s resolution for 2013?
