Planning on carrying the momentum, 2007 to 2008

The later part of 2007 was more or less a turning point in my life on both a personal and professional level. Life was moving at such a pace that the Christmas Holiday and ushering in of a New Year caught me completely off guard. But 2008 is here! To everyone who has supported and celebrated with me along the way, thank you.

My 2008 New Years resolutions?

  • Lose weight. My building has a decent gym in it, but I have only used it once. I’ve gained 15 lbs. since my last workout (which was too long ago).
  • Be healthy. Last year I spent more at the vet for Boo than I did on myself for doctors visits in the last 12 months. Probably a sign that I should see the doctor more.
  • Continue to curb my tendency to pick-up anything shiny and electronic.

To all of the 5thirtyone.com readers who have ever commented, sent a sarcastic remark in via email, or exchanged messages via IM… thank you for reminding me why I continue to push content. RSS subscriptions are at an all-time high, and the entire site has over 4,400 comments! Here’s to keeping the momentum for 2008! Let everyone know what your New Year’s resolution is and one contributor will be selected at random for a $25 iTunes Music Store credit.

Crossing my fingers that by this time next year, the "Krippin Virus" has not infected humans and animals. Just kidding. I Am Legend was the last film I caught in 2007 and I have to say, I was disappointed. Another "zombie" movie – a mashup of Dawn of the Dead, 28 Days Later, and Resident Evil rolled into one. Maybe I’m all wrong though. What did you think?

UPDATE 01/14: Matthew was randomly selected as the winner of the iTunes gift card.
