Happy new year everybody! I know a lot of people out there like to say the phrase, “new year, new me”, meaning that this new year is going to bring about changes in yourself that will significantly (you hope) improve your life, but I like to have a more realistic set of expectations going into the new year, so my philosophy is “new year, new excuses”, meaning I’m not going to change, but I will come up with some new excuses as to why I don’t, so maybe I can fool you into thinking that I’m not just as lazy and undetermined as I appear to be. That being said, I do have some resolutions for 2018, things that I will work to accomplish so this year doesn’t seem like a complete waste, and that’s what I want to share with you today. It is my resolution in 2018, to watch the new iPhone commercial featuring Big Boi’s song “All Night”, at least once a week. Not only is it a great song that is incredibly catchy, but the iPhone commercial featuring bobbing animal emoji heads just makes this one of the greatest videos I’ve ever seen, and watching it once a week will lift my spirits, going a long way in making my 2018 a happy year overall.
The second thing I’m going to do to improve my 2018 year as a whole is to only drink Riptide Rush Gatorade. I don’t mean that I’m only going to be drinking that delicious liquid this year, but when it comes to Gatorade, which I like to indulge in from time to time, I’m only going to have the Riptide Rush Flavor. Don’t ask me what it tastes like, because honestly I don’t know, I can’t explain it, but what I do know is that it is, along with Glacier Freeze, the best tasting Gatorade your money can buy. It may seem like an arbitrary goal to hang may hat on this year, but there’s no denying that drinking that kind of Gatorade makes me happy, and that’s really what I’m going for this year.
Lastly, my third and final goal or resolution for 2018 is this; I’m going to learn something new. I have a guitar that I don’t know how to play, and I’ve always wanted to learn a knew language, so by the end of this year, maybe I will either I will know how to play my instrument or will be able to communicate effectively in a foreign country. Or maybe I’ll just be watching TV one night, and an infomercial will come on for a product I’ve never heard of, and somewhere in the course of the commercial, and actor will say something that I’d never realized before about regular pillows and how bad they are for your neck. It may come about unexpectedly, but it will be something newly learned nonetheless, so that too would count as reaching my goal for the year. I think it’s important to have goals, trying to aspire to something that may not be easy, so whether your goals are simple ones, or incredibly difficult like mine, I wish you good luck in the coming year. Let’s make 2018 a great one!
