The Revolution Begins

Resolution #1: Start a blog (and maintain it)
Progress: Done

Every year brings new challenges and opportunities, but 2010 shows special promise for being a landmark one. Not only did January 1 mark the beginning of a new year, but also that of a new decade, and that decade only the second of a new millennium. What a chance to take advantage of this season, and plunge headfirst into making major life changes without any aforethought! Hence: a blog!

I know what you're thinking, that a blog doesn't seem like a major life change. Well since we're all friends here, I'll express a little radical honesty: It's not. However, this is not your ordinary sports blog, not your wearisome political commentary, nor your typical literary outlet for teenage angst. This blog will follow my journey through a year of continuous improvement that includes a completely absurd number of new years resolutions, bucket list items, and goals for 2010.

Thomas Jefferson taught me that "Every generation needs a new revolution" and since I haven't seen any in my lifetime so far of which I've been particularly fond, I'm going to start my own. It's hip, it's new, whether you've seen it before or not, and everyone is doing it! (Including your mom, your cousin, and that creepy janitor at work) Speaking of revolutions, props to Erika for inadvertently giving me the title of the blog with her typo. Thanks. Now I do have a new year's revolution!

I learned a long time ago, that if I don't write it down, it isn't going to happen, folks. So I invite all of you, my faithful readers (and since this is the first post, I guess that's just me) to come along on my journey, and hopefully be inspired to make a few improvements in your own lives.

Making resolutions of your own this year? Want to join me in my quest for a more fulfilled life? Sound off in the comments below!


  1. This was actually something I decided to do this year! Good minds must think alike :)

  2. Congratulations Aaron. I started setting goals last Nov. for the first time in years myself. I am anxious to follow you on your journey.

  3. Interesting. I look forward to seeing what crazy ideas you have planned for this year! :) Oh, and thanks for telling me about this ;)
