Now that the hangovers have all faded and the screams and shouts of “Happy 2013” have stopped ringing in our ears, it’s achievement-time! (Cue the epic “achievement-time” dubstep/rapcore theme music.) Here’s one we’re all familiar with but probably never actually achieved before: Make a New Year’s resolution and STICK WITH IT!
Remember, it’s not enough to just make a New Year’s resolution; anyone can do that! You need to STICK WITH IT (hence the reoccurring CAPS)! So many of us make New Year’s resolutions, like lose (or gain) weight, exercise more, or get better grades, but end up failing somewhere along the way (and literally with that last one, too). Some statistics claim as high as nearly 90 percent of us who make New Year’s resolutions end up not keeping them throughout the whole year. Which would make it all the more special to be one of the few who can proudly say, “I did it!”
My New Year’s resolution? To write more. Writing is my greatest passion and when I’m not working on my first novel (which just surpassed the 55,000-word mark the other day), I’m either writing short stories or blogging here on WordPress. And as part of my New Year’s resolution, I’m going to try hard to post one new achievement every other day! Huzzah, 2013!
