Another Year

It just does not seem like another year has started. Perhaps it's because my clock is more run by the academic school calendar. That could be it.

The old year rolled out the door without much fanfare, and today I woke up the same old person. Sure, I have a few resolutions I'd rather not destroy in the first few days. After all, it is good to have a reason to start new habits and break the old ones. But seriously? I have to keep reminding myself that we are indeed in a new and exciting year.

Perhaps a good resolution for me this year would be to more enthusiastically embrace the celebrations of my our culture, no matter how large or small they might be.

Now, what the next big event? MLK Day or the Superbowl? Wahoo! Bring 'em on!

I'm still me, too. Just with papers to read that I neglected deliberately over break.

Here's to a new year of discovering where our better selves are hiding!
