1. Self-Brand Myself
I hope to start off my resolutions by developing a brand for myself. As part of creating an outlet for my creativity, I hope to create a name for myself in the competitive world throughout this world wide web. We all know thousands of consumer products, commodities, and celebrities, but the ones we remember most, and the ones we buy, are those brands we can relate with, or those who have developed a name for themselves. Who are you, if the world doesn't know you?
2. Become More Active
Yes, I am pretty sure this is one of the top resolutions for most people. But for me- I am really hoping to become more active in the community, engage in different environments and be a part of more surroundings. I hope to join some sports leagues, attend some classes and be a part of more opportunities to learn new hobbies. In college, the opportunities for these things were so easy, intramural sports, clubs, and the already attending classes, but in the real world, finding these opportunities outside of our daily work routine becomes something you have to chase down. I hope to find these opportunities around me.
3. Get a Fresh Start
I know this seems vague, but it encompasses a wide array of dreams. I have lived in Washington my entire life. To some- this is not very long. To me- this is far too long for someone who dreams of picking up and starting a new life in every city I step foot into. I am so inspired by those who have the story to tell of moving to a new state. I ask far too many questions to those who have got that opportunity, and look down at the ground when asked "Do you never want to leave?" because of course, I do. I have had the incredible opportunity to travel to new places almost every month, and have some pretty amazing trips in my past, but it is just not the same of picking up and moving to somewhere new. I thoroughly believe that "once in a lifetime" chances have to start somewhere. Why not now?
I know throughout the month, and even throughout the year, I will have many more resolutions to write in the books, but for now... 2013 will be the year; The year for something new.
