New year, new you! 5, 4, 3, 2, 1! The countdown is on to 2013. After the sparkling grape juice is gone and the confetti is swept away, the work begins on New Year’s Resolutions. However, most don’t last past January 2nd. Here are the most important tips & tricks to make 2013 the best year yet.

Top 10 New Year’s Resolutions

1) Get better grades 2) Spend more time with family 3) Stop subtweeting (putting people down on social media sites) 4) Forgive and forget 5) Lose weight 6) Stop swearing/using the “R-word” 7) Save gas and be more efficient 8) Cut back on TV and internet 9) Reduce, reuse, and recycle 10) Stop saying “yolo” and “swag” **According to Mini-Feature Staff

As a way to reflect on the best of 2013, write down any favorite times had throughout the year. When recalling a memorable moment, write it on a slip of paper and put them all in a jar. Mementos and pictures can also add to the reflection on the year. On New Year’s Eve, open the jar and relive the best experiences; a good way to commemorate the end of another great year.
