I'm going to repost, for I beleive the 4th time, my favorite new years quote.
"May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself."
Neil Gaiman

I'm making a list of 13 things to do, which is sort of like resolutions. But sorta not. Some of them are more resolutiony than others. Sometimes people neglect their blogs for several months, only writing whiney or angry posts.Sometimes those people are me. So the first thing on the list of 13 things I want to do in 2013 is:
1. Remember to write. Find something hilarious or weird or true to write down once a day. 

2. Take voice lessons. I've wanted to do this since I was a little girl. No grand ambitions, just want to know how to sing properly.

3. Participate in the Urban Iditarod. For the last two years my boyfriend and our friends have created awesome shopping-cart structures and donned costumes for a day of drinking and general portlandy awesomeness. I have been unable to join them. This year, I will make it happen. 

4. Juice fast. Only like 5 days. I am sometimes not very nice to my body. I put bad things in it. It's time for a re-set. 
4A. Buy a new juicer.

5. Pay off 2 credit cards. This is credit card debt mostly from 3 years ago. Time to get rid of it and start being nicer to my credit score.

6. Run a 5k. I did this a couple years ago but know I couldn't do it again right now. 

7. Squat 150 lbs.

8. Bench 100 lbs. 

9. Complete two more series at Night Flight. Make time and room in my budget.

10. Finish my tattoo by the end of February.

11. Get a savings account. Actually put money in it. 

12. Read 12 new books. 

13. Kick ass at my job.
