I know this might be shocking, but I’m famous for not following through on my resolutions, but I do them each year any way. What is more awesome than New Year’s resolutions? Animated GIFs, my friends. So hold on to that computer mouse, here are my 2013 resolutions. I added some animated GIF flare because that is how we are going to do it in 2013.
This is my 2,900th post to jeremyperson.com, I think that is awesome and if you are reading this you might too. I’m looking forward to a few more posts, so I can be a 3k post blogger. I like to share…a lot. OK, now let’s get into the resolutions.
50 consecutive push-ups. I can do 16 currently. I have push-ups on my resolution list almost every year and for 2013 let’s shoot for 50 since I’m half way there.
Take more pictures. Try not to worry too much about what others are doing. Just take lots of pictures and document the life through the camera lens. I really enjoy life and love sharing it with others.
Rock the ping pong. We got a ping pong table at work, which has given me a chance to get pretty decent at it. OK, it probably helps that I have freakishly long monkey limbs. Playing more ping pong is not really a goal, but I just want to keep doing more things that make me happy.
Next comes something I don’t like, and I don’t think I’m alone. I want to make the bed each day in 2013. OK, kid, stop shaking that brush at me, I’ll do it, I’ll do it.
Teach Tyler to ride a bike without training wheels. He is super cautious like his dad and I won’t be like the dad in the animation, but we will prevail in 2013!
Run a 5k with an average pace of less than 10 minutes a mile. I just started getting serious about running and although that is probably slow to some of you, it would be a remarkable feat to me. I have never taken my health too seriously and with me losing so many around me in 2012 I don’t want to be the next person to leave prematurely. I’ll see how the 5k goes and hope to do a half-marathon in the summer if I can get super dedicated. If you can have a lion, tiger, or bear chase me, that would be even better.
Happy New Year and here is to another year of rocking the Internet together.
