The coming of a new year is a chance to reflect on the trials and triumphs of the past year, and look to the future. In 2013, Baltimore-area Patch editors have a variety of goals, from weight loss to wedding planning to spending more time with family and friends.
Here's what your Patch editors hope to accomplish in 2013:
Tyler Waldman, Editor of Essex-Middle River Patch:
“Continued good health and good times with good friends. Also, I'd like to take some time away from work to explore foreign lands old and new.”
Kirsten Dize, Editor of Bel Air Patch:
“In 2013 I resolve to keep my email inbox down to a single page and be the best maid of honor for my engaged friend that I can be.”
Sean Welsh, Associate Regional Editor:
“I'm turning 30 this year, so I'm trying to turn back the clock a little and get myself a healthier in the process. I started running more in 2012. I'm planning to keep that up in 2013. My goal is to drop 20 pounds by the time I turn 30—I have six months to do it. And I'll be blogging about it regularly on Aberdeen Patch.”
Marc Shapiro, Editor of Owings Mills-Reisterstown Patch:
“I resolve to learn how to sing, get back into a regular guitar practice routine and get back into exercising and yoga.”
Elizabeth Janney, Editor of Havre de Grace Patch:
“I resolve to write one happy post each day. Somewhere, somebody is doing something positive, and I will find it!”
Emily Kimball, Editor of Perry Hall Patch:
“Plan my wedding and get hitched. Just six months to get this one done.”
Nayana Davis, Editor of Towson Patch:
“I resolve to make more time for family and friends.”
Nick DiMarco, Editor of Lutherville-Timonium Patch:
"In 2012, I quit smoking. In 2013, I hope to put my clean lungs to good use by working out more often."
Marge Neal, Editor of Dundalk Patch:
"I've been promising myself for years I would take a pottery class and learn how to use Photoshop, so I'm hoping 2013 is the year!"
