What New Year?

The calendar year has changed, and apparently I’m a little slow on the uptake… so many other blogs were right on the ball (including , , Jason’s , and my favorite from some guy I don’t know . But, under the philosophy of “better late than never,” Happy Freakin New Year.

As I start pondering New Years Resolutions’ it occurs to me that part of the reason that I might not have stuck to prior resolutions was the informality in structuring them. Think of your standard New Years’ Resolutions: “Meet new people,” “Lose weight,” “Learn a new language.” How boring! I figure I’m much more likely to keep my resolutions if I model them after the old high school debate resolutions from a few years back. Here’s a sample:

Whereas the magazine Dynamic Graphics is the first magazine I’ve seen that targets UI Designers like myself, and
Whereas they have articles on new, hip font faces, which makes me feel like not-as-nerdy for getting crazy over cool fonts, and
Whereas each issue discusses a brochure / website / marketing theme and suggests a color palette with the pantone colors clearly identified – which is very cool, and
Whereas I feel more cultured having magazines on my coffee table when people come to my apartment;
Be It Resolved that I will subscribe to Dynamic Graphics this year.

See, I think that’s much better. Aren’t you psyched about that resolution now? And it’s not even yours!

The conversation continues...

    Let me understand this. Your resolution is to subscribe to Dynamic Graphics…to be…a better person!

    That’s actually only one of many resolutions. It’s not a real resolution, though… that’s just my cheap way of working in this magazine that I stumbled upon into a blog posting. :)

    14 days and no updates? Surely something interesting has happened since the 3rd.

What do you think?
