New Year's Resolutions for 2013

I look forward to leaving the harsh unmerciless year of 2012 behind and hope 2013 ushers in a year filled with promise, fresh starts, and new beginnings.

As in previous years, I jotted down some New Year's resolutions:

• I'm going to quit judging myself and start judging others

• I resolve to quit being the Pink Elephant in the room

• I refuse to share my thoughts for a mere penny

• If nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court, I plan to legislate from the bench.

• Come to accept the cruel reality that there's no I in team.

• Will try to multi-task this year by wearing my heart on my sleeve, while washing my dirty linen in public.

• Will try to resolve whether to embrace the saying: "He who hesitates is lost,'' or continue to believe "Good things happen to those who wait.''

• Try to find out if the newspaper industry is indeed dying, what will we wrap our fish with?

• I will continue to argue my case that I've always been able to see the forest through the trees.

• While driving, I refuse to negotiate anymore with any sharp corners, it only empowers them.

Happy New Year!
