I kind of suck at new years resolutions. Most of us do though. We make all these ridiculous, lofty resolutions like ‘lose 10 kilos’ ‘run 5 kilometres every day’ and ‘drink 8 glasses of water’, and then after 2 days and a pack of Tim Tams it all goes to shit.
I’m foregoing the illusion (and ensuing guilt) this year and making New York resolutions instead. I am lucky enough to be living in the most amazing city in the world*, and in between regular life – working, eating, shopping, TCB** – I need to tick some apple-shaped boxes. Rather than list specifics, I’ll be intentionally vague for my own benefit. I want to see some sport at Madison Square Garden and Barclays Centre (you can tell I’m heaps sporty, right? “see some sport” ha!). I want to hit all the museums at least once each. See a Broadway show (specifically Book of Mormon). I will learn the subway system and then the bus system. And I’m going to continue to photograph the city every day. This city is always inspiring and constantly evolving, and you never know where opportunity is going to come from.
I don’t think anything can ever top my 2012, but I’m bloody well going to try this year! Have a great 2013 xx
*364 days a year New York is the most amazing place in the world, but Sydney completely kicks New Yorks ass when it comes to New Years Eve. Ball drop? Lame. It’s all about the Harbour pyrotechnics.
**TCB = taking care of business. Laundry, gym, housework etc.
