We all have those things that we want to change about ourselves. Sometimes, you (okay, *I*) have been telling yourself that you’re going to improve a certain something about yourself for ages before you actually do anything about it. My aim is to make serious progress toward various self-improvement goals with a “due date” (really, it will be a check-in date) of December 10, 2013: my 24th birthday. 24 just so happens to be my favorite number and I really want to start off that year in the absolute best way possible. In other words, I want to set myself up to have a fantastic 24th year of life!
