MINI PENNY: 2013 Resolutions — Well, Sort Of

2013 Resolutions — Well, Sort Of

I normally don't make resolutions. I guess it's because I'm terrified of the cliché that they'll last a month and be over — and besides, I like me, so what do I want to change?

The only time I have ever "made a resolution" was last year. And by all means, it was late. In February I decided to stop eating meat. I knew it would be easy considering that I had almost entirely cut meat out of my diet for the year and a half prior to this decision. With that being said, it's been a piece of cake being vegetarian and I have no intentions of going back. It just... fits.

So this year, with my new life in Philadelphia and my new career, I wanted to pick some things that fit. Things that aren't necessarily an attempt to change, but goals. These are my five resolutions (for someone who doesn't make resolutions).

1. Purchase New Wheels — I haven't had my bicycle for about two months (it's still back home in Chicago) and I'm missing it pretty badly. Prior to my consideration in Philly, I was on the lookout for Puch Magnum. I really want to pick up a moped this year for easy transportation, a new hobby, and a new learning experience. Oh, and I might get a new bicycle as well.

2. Adopt a Furry Friend... or Two — It's no secret that I've wanted a dog for many years. And considering that people bring their dogs to work every day makes my want grow even more. My heart keeps going back to French Bulldogs (and a cat, too, of course) and I'm pretty excited about finding the right addition to my life this year.

3. Read More About My Career — The things that have gotten me to where I am have been admittedly self-taught. A lot of it has been trial and error over my blogging career and I want to shrink the margin for, well, more error. This year I'm really investing into learning as much as I can through studying, observing, and interacting with users and other brands.

4. Travel More Often — I'm lucky that I have a job that allows me to travel, and I plan on participating as much as possible in the adventures that lie before me.

5. Get Religious About Pinterest — I'm done with Tumblr 'likes' for images I want to save for future posts. It's just too messy. I've found Pinterest to be a much better way for me to organize my inspiration for proper future crediting. Check me out here.

What about you? What are your goals for the year?
