I love the feeling of a fresh start. Whether it is a birthday, new job, change in season, or the start of a brand new year, I really enjoy the limitless feeling that comes with every “first.” I am easily bored when life falls into a mundane routine, so the excitement of something new is almost always welcomed. 

Since I already made the list of things I’m determined to accomplish before reaching my quarter century, I felt a little stumped as far as New Year’s resolutions go. I’ve got a lot on my plate to finish before April, but I hate the idea of not marking this beginning with some kind of pledge.

So this year, my resolution is to fully commit to blogging. I’ve been incredibly fortunate to turn my love of writing into a career, but in order to continue growing and exploring my passion, I need interaction. I want to share my ideas and interests with others and get their take on things, too. I want to be apart of the community that I’ve drooled over for years. I want to contribute.

2012 was a seriously amazing year. I’m ready to make 2013 just awesome.
