Bye 2007, Hello 2008

2007 was my first full year out of my parent's household and I have to say, it has been an enlightening experience. I spread my wings into the realm of independence, became more spiritually aware, and even had a touch of nostalgia when I revisited my previous residence, Atlanta, Georgia. Of course, the gaming scene was juicy as well. The Wii and Playstation 3 entered their first full year on the market and the Xbox 360 celebrated its second. Then, of course, was all of the fantastic software that graced those consoles-Super Mario Galaxy, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, and The Orange Box just to name a few. Now, to finish the year off with a bang, I add my first Community Blog post to that list.

For this post I decided highlight my top three 2008 New Year's Resolutions:

(1) Be Involved in the Destructoid Community.

I read Destructoid a lot. In fact, you can label me a DToid reading addict. I simply never plucked up the courage to become involved in the site's community. This post is the plunge, and 2008 will be the swimming. Look forward to far more posts on this blog over the course of the year.

(2) Work harder and smarter. Become the ULTIMATE MACHINE.

My step-mother always touted a work smarter not harder mentality; I believe this is simply not true. You need to be a hard and smart worker in order to be successful. I am going to apply this to all facets of my life whether it is college, my job, or writing. When I become the ultimate machine, someone please slap some humanity back into me.

(3) Exercise. Exercise. Exercise.

Exercise? I dread that word. I dread it so much I am actually going to engage in it this year. No, I am not overweight; actually, you probably could not identify me in a field of six foot tall toothpicks. Nevertheless, I am out of shape and I know I can do better. That's right gym, I am coming for you in 2008.

These three things pretty much sum up what I want to accomplish in 2008. Now, with less than an hour to go, I am off to catch the countdown.

Happy New Year!!!
