HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Well, this is it.
If you’ve got any 2013 business left, you’ve got mere hours left to do it. Then everything stamped 2013 expires like milk, lunch meat and Miley Cyrus’s popularity.
Of course, if you’re reading this after December 31, then 2014 has already crashed down amongst us like that one weird uncle who comes around every year about now, uninvited and looking for gas money. And if 2014 is anything like 2013, then that weird uncle is taking up residence in your spare room and parking his boxers on your sofa for the duration. You’re screwed, sister. Might as well just crawl into bed with a box of Oreos until January 1, 2015.
But let’s not lose hope. There’s still a chance you could get what you want out of the new year. What is it? A new job? Better Job? Any job?
To finish school? Finish some sort of necessary and/or elective health treatment? Finish the Harry Potter books? (Spoiler: his name was Rosebud.)
Maybe you want to go somewhere new in 2014. Somewhere exotic and endangered perhaps. Like the Great Barrier Reef. Or war-torn Middle East. Or an independent bookstore.
Maybe your goal in 2014 is to acquire a new skill. Learn a foreign language. Learn to skydive. Or figure out how to make your Android phone talk to you iPad. (It could be a long year.)
So many possibilities. Me, I’m just looking forward to more writing. Good health. Maybe an enjoyable adult beverage or two.
What does the new year have in store for you?
