New Year, No Fear

Ahhh, a brand new year. Thank goodness we're all still alive, right? Sorry, know that joke is old, but the world does seem somewhat empty now that there's no lurking conspiracy around the corner. Someone hurry and think of some new civilization-ending plan. I'll feel much better about myself.

Anyway. School starts tomorrow, so of course instead of getting my schedule finalized and books purchased, I am blogging! A great omen of things to come, I'm sure.

It's already been acknowledged that 2012 was a pretty great year. Here's hoping 2013 will be even better. Here's what I'd like to have happen:

My 2013 Resolutions!
    The TV nerd's dream book
  • Graduate from college. All signs indicate that this one will actually happen. As long as I show up to 50 percent of my classes, they can't fail me in my last semester. Right?
  • Lose dat weight. For real, this is going to happen. 
  • Conquer The Big Apple. I guess now is as good a time as any to announce that I got accepted into BYU's New York Internship Program! I'm accepting on the condition that I will be placed at an agency that can take me full-time afterwards. Yes, this means that I will most likely be living in New York in the spring. And hopefully for years after that as well. I'm excited but also slightly terrified. 
  • Go to every remaining BYU basketball game. (In conjunction with Ashley Anderson)
  • Read more books. My list of books read last year was horribly pathetic. Granted, I spent most of my free time watching TV, but it's still unacceptable. Hopefully once I graduate I'll have time for quality literature. First on the list: The Revolution Was Televised by Alan Sepinwall, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson. I would also love your suggestions!
  • Finish my Provo Bucket List.
  • Actually meet a celebrity at Sundance this year. James Franco, I'm looking at you.
  • Cut back on the caffeine. This will help when I leave the MCTO and its fridge stocked full of Dr. Peppers. (Who am I kidding, I'm the reason they're there in the first place.)
  • Make out with 20 boys. That one's a joke. I think. I'm tired, ok?
Happy 2013!!


  1. I'M SOOOOOO COMING TO VISIT YOU. OMG OMG OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Also, I read Gone Girl and it was very captivating and interesting. Love it. Definitely a good read. I haven't been reading very much lately either so I don't really have any good books to suggest. :/ reading more books is my new years resolution too.

  2. I have only met you a few times (I'm Hollie King's cousin) BUT, i'm going on my mission to NY NY South! So, I'll be just over the bridge in Brooklyn, should I ever chance at running into you!

  3. That's awesome!! Perhaps we'll have to arrange a spontaneous meeting :)
