naturally, i've been thinking about this year and how i'd like it to go. at least in the ways i can have power over how it goes. and anyway, i think most of my aspirations can be summed up into 'getting real'. for example: eat more real food, have more real friendships/conversations, read real books, have real faith, get a real college degree, take real showers/wear real clothes, etc. so, get ready for that.
