All my life, I've balked at New Years' Resolutions. Then, December 31st, 2011, I smoked my last cigarette whilst lighting fireworks in my driveway. The first couple months were pretty rough. The next few months were relatively novel. Then I kinda forgot about it.

December 31st, 2012, I know I have a lot to celebrate, but being smoke free for a full year is pretty much the top of my list. It's inspired me to consider something equally epic for 2013; I'm thinking about quitting soda - diet and otherwise - next year. Not sure about it yet, but I'm giving it thought. Figured I'd share.

As for what impact I want to have in 2013, it's hard for me to put a finger on it, really. I have this urge to do more with Gearbox Magazine, to maybe get to the point where it's not just me traveling all over the world to meet other gearheads, but maybe making it possible for gearheads to travel themselves. No small feat!

I also want to write a couple books (remember my Distillery Project?) and to get my finances in order. I need to stabilize my foundation so I am better prepared to step in and help those in need. And I want to be ready to work from home full time by the time my daughter is ready to start school.

Bit of a ramble, but I always enjoy your thoughtful questions, mate.
