New year, new goals

I’m not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions. “Resolution” sounds like a solution to something that needs to be fixed, like a crumbling marriage or a recipe that doesn’t have enough kick to it.

Last year, my life needed fixing. For the first time in quite a few years, I made a resolution. I resolved to not go on any more terrible first dates from Internet dating sites. It worked out because I had one last internet first date last NYE, and I’ve been inseparable from V ever since.

This year, I’m happier than I can put into words. Everything seems to have fallen into place, and I couldn’t think of a single thing to change even if I tried.

So, for this year, in lieu of making a resolution and fixing something that’s not broken (if it ain’t broke don’t fix it!), I’m making 3 simple goals. If I achieve them, great. If I don’t, oh well. Sometimes goals are achieved, and sometimes goals change. That’s the beauty of human nature.

1. Blog everyday.

My friend Casey blogged everyday last year, and, in her words, it ruled. I was inspired by the VQChat the other day, and I think I will at least attempt to blog everyday of 2014.

2. Save money for our wedding.


It’s 2014 which means HOLY CRAP WE GET MARRIED NEXT YEAR. We’ve officially set a date, picked a venue, and found an officiant so it’s time to get cooking! (And not just for the bucket of fried chicken I owe Nina either.)

3. Write a book.


With my new latte maker, I’m hoping to find the motivation– and caffeination level– required to actually bring the book idea I’ve had for a while to life. The idea has been met with excitement with some of the fabulous connections I’ve head the pleasure of meeting this past year or so, and I really hope I can finally make it happen.

Do you have any goals for 2014? Or even resolutions?

Change, growth, and love

I was going to post a complicated post about everything that’s happened this year, but I got distracted and watched The Heat instead. 2013 was a year of love, growth, and change, and for that I am grateful. I wish you all a year of continued change, for change is what allows growth and love to happen.

Happy New Year’s Eve!


Max is hoping you don’t get caught up in the little things–or chairs– in 2014.
