Well, December 21, 2012 came and went 5 days ago. The supposed end of the world might have been a little more foreboding if the people selling it weren’t on Doomsday Preppers. Magnetic pole shifts, ice caps melting, sun flares, invisible planets. While I’m not a scientist (unless you want to count my poli sci degree as being a political scientist, and you don’t) those things don’t appear so empirically sound.
In 5 days, I’ll be waking up to 2013. I’ll miss 2012, it was good to me. I knocked two more semesters of law school out, I had a killer clerkship, I got to move out of Moscow and back to Boise, Chris and I celebrated a year together, I’ve made new friends and reconnected with old friends. I started a weight training program and dropped 20 (law school induced) lbs. While I don’t usually make new years resolutions (I prefer to make changes in my life as I believe I need them), this has been an especially fast semester and Christmas season. Everything I want out of 2013 is an extension of what I currently have.
So, what do I want out of 2013? More of the same, and a few adjustments on my end. I need to get my buns in gear in the job search. I want to make more thing (crafternoons anyone?). I want to get back into yoga to balance out the weight lifting. Most importantly, I need to quit giving my time to people that elicit negative feelings. Simplify my life. Those things seem like small changes. Additionally, I’m flirting with going Paleo, but I really, really, really love legumes. I don’t know if I can give them up.
I wish everyone feels loved and loving as they move out of 2012 and into 2013.
