My New Year’s Resolutions

“A New Year’s resolution is a commitment that a person makes to one or more personal goals, projects or the reforming of a habit.” At least that is what Wikipedia says… I write resolutions every year. I usually lose them and forget about them in first two weeks of a new year. Maybe because I never listed “follow the new year’s resolutions” resolution among them?!

It’s the end of the year, not long and we will enter 2013. I am happy where I am and the way I am, but there is always room for improvement 🙂 . So here we go… In 2013 I will:
