100% honesty: December 2012 sucked.
After I came back from London, I skied once. Then I got really sick for about 2.5 weeks & could barely walk up the stairs without hacking my lungs up. Then I skied again... then I got food poisoning. Then my iPhone died. You see the horrible pattern here? When December 31st rolled around, you couldn't have seen a happier human being than myself... because I wanted the month to end. Desperately.
2013 got off to a great start. I came home from a party & decided to plug my iPhone in (around 1:30 AM), just to see if it would work. And miraculously, my iPhone was resurrected! My power button broke a long time ago & I've been too cheap to have it fixed. But that becomes a problem when your software crashes & you need to do a hard reset... but you can't because the power button is broken. By letting the battery completely drain, I forced a hard reset. Not on purpose, obviously. I thought it needed a funeral. I even bought a new phone; not a new iPhone, but a cheapy Android-based Samsung smartphone. But now that I've seen Proof-of-Life in my iPhone, I'm going to finally take it for service. New screen, power button, & possibly even battery. I'll have a practically brand-new device! And in the meantime, I've got a serviceable smartphone replacement. It's never a bad thing to have a back up cell phone.
I'm looking forward to a year of [possible] big changes & big plans. I'm just like everyone else; I came up with resolutions/goals for 2013... & took the process so seriously that I wrote them on a Post-It note. Hear the sarcasm? Yeah, that's because my resolutions/goals haven't changed much from last year. That's kinda disappointing, really. I hope to do better this year. And after A Long December of non-existent fitness, I'm looking forward to getting back on track, doing the right thing, & continuing to size down.
Let's hear it for a healthy, fit, & happy 2013!
