It’s a New Year, and my time assisting at GoComics is coming to an end as I pass the torch on to an awesome new intern. This is bittersweet. GoComics is my alma mater in a way: It's a place that will always have a special spot in my heart, where I’ve grown immensely and shared some really good laughs with a lot of really great people. The new year is a time of reflection, and as I reflect on 2013, I am the most thankful that I was able to get my start at GoComics, because GoComics has given me the tools I need to succeed. But now I face a fresh new start and that’s always an exciting thing.
The new year is also a time to set goals ... then slip into a pair of sweatpants, eat an entire pizza by yourself and pretend like you’re actually going to get off the couch and work out tomorrow. This year, I have decided to ditch my laissez-faire attitude toward New Year’s resolutions, seeing as new starts are the perfect opportunity to grab life by the horns, and I set some goals I absolutely have to stick to if I want to conquer this purgatory they call “the awkward 20-somethings.” For example, finding a job I love as much as this one, so I won’t have to live in my parents’ basement anymore.
Ultimately, I want to be able to use this pickup line. Dilbert:
I won’t lie, my past resolutions have not been successful, and new starts kind of freak me out, because both of these things imply change. However, life would be so boring if we didn’t change.
That’s the fun thing about change. Zen Pencils:
Wishing you a happy new start with a brave new heart.
