Twenty Less Than 3; A Compiled New Year’s Resolution Post

Hey everyone! I am terribly sorry that I did not post for an entire week! Yes, I am still alive! I was busy with friends and family. Did you have a safe, warm family oriented Christmas? Did you meet your version of the Fockers? As the next year approaches within less than ten hours in China, ambition and drive overwhelms our minds until the first week of the New Year with barely any results. Does that sound familiar? Maybe a new slate is not necessarily easy to handle, but let me give you some encouragement.

Whether 2013 is a year for healthier diets, weight loss, throwing out the cancer sticks, finding a career, or establishing a love life, I wish you all the best of luck in your endeavors.  Don’t ever give up! It’s your life! Change starts now.

I have compiled a personal New Year’s resolution list below, and I hope to follow through with it, with the support of everyone within the WordPress community.

Blogs

Prinze Charming has reached nearly 6,000 views of all time since the grand opening on November 12th, 2012. That is definitely an accomplishment already! I have visited plenty of blogs in the last month, noticing their views, and then their long compiled list of archives. I don’t have a long list of posts, but my reputation is extremely respectable. How does this happen? It’s simple. Commitment, quality, and support.

Stay committed to what you do for others and for yourself. Remember – this is advice for you to take into 2013. If you love what you are doing, continue doing it! If it is way too much to handle, slow down. I tried extremely hard to keep up articles every week. Blogging is like a full-time job!  I would hate to ask for donations as I try my best to find a legitimate career, but I have student loans to pay every month. The donation button is in my About Me section. As I mentioned, I will make sure to acknowledge these contributions on the bottom of my page. So, you will benefit from it by being listed as a great blog to follow. I will hope that my active followers visit your page for inspiration as well.

Quality is definitely important. I understand some people are writing about personal events in their life that might have inspired them. Is it really worth sharing the news that you had a similar sign from God in the movie, Running with Scissors? Probably not. Can you make it worth the visit?  Try to become more presentable.

Your voice is not only heard, but it’s read from many viewers. Ask yourself if you would read your own articles over and over. Would you actually share them with the world after you finish reading them? If the quality isn’t there, reorganize your intentions. Give your viewers something to indulge with enthusiasm! Invest their time wisely with what you have to say.

Lastly, support is definitely important. It’s not only the support for you, but for others. Are you a frequent user who only likes posts, but never comments on anything you ever liked? Fake? Yes. Supportive? Probably not.   In 2013, you should step out of your liking frenzy and start commenting. Believe it or not – it will actually improve your writing and your overall feedback. How hard is it to read a couple of articles a day and leave feedback on all of them? Make the best of it! In the last month that I have been here, I always found one other article that relates to one of my articles. That is an intense feeling to take an advantage of an opportunity and share something relevant to what I read from someone else. Maybe you don’t have anything else to share? Let someone else inspire you. 

Poetically Captivating 

Did I start with a bang or what? My first article, “An Erotic Masterpiece; A Painting of One Thousand Words,” deserves a lot of acknowledgement for reaching an extraordinarily high demand of reblogs within a short amount of time. This article, as well as my sensualist article,  is the main reason I’m here. I am the next young romance novelist. Is that my career goal? No. It is definitely something to have aside for those days when I need to relax and release passionate tension from within my soul.

I created Poetically Captivating to step aside from the engaging articles to something more loose and relaxed. I am glad to see some interest for my other poetic posts, and I hope to continue maintaining that blog just as well as this one. I am not going to reblog everything, so if you have interest, follow that one as well. As I said, this is almost like a full-time job. I hope to find a career more financially stable and promising in 2013.

Career 

I am a recent University of Connecticut graduate with a B.A. in Political Science. I would love to find government work experience at an entry-level. Is it easy? Maybe. Am I marketable? Extremely! My About Me section is almost designed as my résumé. I would add work experience, and remove my photogenic profile. With my linguistic background, I have many career paths available for me. I applied to many places, but persistence is definitely important. If the fish doesn’t bite the first time, reel it in and try again. I hope I find something soon. My student loans will continue to haunt me until they are entirely paid off.

Health 

Now, this is a very common topic for a New Years resolution list. What does a 23-year-old ask about concerning their health? Well, I am not a smoker. I am not an alcoholic, unless it’s intoxication of thy lips. So, what else would there be? Fitness. I would love to start running again. That would be amazing! I am definitely ready to throw some mileage down for 2013. When I have the job down the street, I will definitely walk to work.

Love 

Oh, ouch. What a cupid question! Too many daggers, not enough aim. No, just kidding. I am going to remain silent about this one. Let me just say this –  6 long years of being single. Does that mean I am alone? No. Does that mean I have cats? No, but yes I do have two cats. I am not using them as a part of my “forever alone” speech.

Reading 

I am a compulsive buyer! When I see books like, “Seeds of Terror; How Drugs, Thugs, and Crime are Reshaping the Afghan War” or “Opium Nation; Child Brides, Drug Lords, and One Woman’s Journey Through Afghanistan,” I instantly buy books on impulse! Sorry, let me remind you. I have a B.A. in Political Science. I am primarily focused on Middle Eastern, European, and East-Asian studies. I would show you the covers of other books awaiting my fingertips, but then you’ll see how crazy I am about global issues. A book I could recommend from my International Political Economy (IPE) course from a while ago would be Joe Bennett’s, “Where Underpants Come From?” Now, this is an excellent book! It is extremely entertaining and educational. I would write more about it, but I have to cut this short. Sorry. Check out book reviews!

Writing 

Novel? Oh, right! How is that coming along? Well, I hope to expand on it in 2013! My inspiration might actually come from recent life experiences! Yes, feel the envy build up inside. Mmm.

 Did you know I have 31 published posts, including this one? I also managed to rack up 7 drafts!  Would you like a sneak peek at what could be published before concluding 2012? Ha, now why would I spoil the fun? Ok, fine. I’ll give you a few teases. The topics will include: Exhibitionist, online dating, kissing debate – snow or rain?, flower petals – do they really predict love?, decline in qualitative love – why is time prioritized?, and let me introduce – a personal confession that will make everyone speechless!  Stay tuned!

2013 will be primarily focused on the theme, “Twenty Less Than 3,” which would look like, “20<3,” instead of, “2013.” The catch? All it takes is less than three for success.

You and me.  <3

I wish everyone the best of luck in health, happiness, and the rest of your endeavors of 2013! Don’t party too hard! Does anyone have any plans? First New Year’s kisses? Please share your stories! Let me know what you wish to read more about in 2013 from my blog! Maybe I should add more? Maybe start a photo section? Maybe I should stay away from certain topics? Let me know!

Thanks everyone for your support!

Take care!

  1. Prinze, I enjoy reading your blog, I find it fresh (no I didn’t call you fresh), and entertaining. Happy New Year to you, and having 2 cats doesn’t make you a crazy cat person, (=

      1. Hehe, Stud muffin probably so, but more like a fresh opened brewsky for the next few days! Have fun celebrating New Years and I hope 2013 is good to you too, muffin. (=

    HAPPY NEW YEAR TONY! What are my plans for the Eve? Going out to dinner with my son’s, in-laws. Yep, that’s right, my daughter-in-law’s parents. They are the most wonderful, generous people we have ever met. Very kind and thoughtful and have always included us in all family events. Well, needless to say, my daughter-in-law, Ashley is a gem! Love her to death! After dinner at ‘Lotus East’ we are going back to their house for a game of pool, drinking of some wine, eating dessert and watching the ball drop in Times Square on TV! Some hugging and kissing and Happier New Yearing….then maybe a game or two around the dining room table till we all get tired and go home to bed. It’s a fun night for us! Hope yours is a wonderful night also! Hugs to my little buddy!❤

    1. Wow, sounds like a great way to end the year right! 2012 was definitely a long year for us all. It’s great to have family around during the rough times. Is this game of pool around an actual pool table or is it part of the Wii package?😉 Don’t party too hard! Stay safe and have fun! I’ll most likely be out of the house with the family later today. It should be fun. Fresh air is always needed. Take care dear.

  3. I am in awe. You are truly full of compassion and brilliant ideas. I learned a lot from this post. I am new to this field:blogging and yea probably putting your thoughts into paragraphs. Honestly, I am not much of a good writer, I can recall a line from a book I just read earlier, “my thoughts are stars i can’t fathom into constellations”. and I think I’m a shitty writer.
    And so I was struck with that idea of yours to comment on blogger’s posts. I never thought that would actually help me improve my writing, and now, I am giving it a try. I just started my blog two days ago and I happen to stop by your site and I fell in love with it. Thank you for the inspiration Tony.

    With lots of love,
    Lyza❤ x

    1. Ah, a heartfelt response! You call yourself a “shitty writer“, but you wrote an amazing response back to my post. Don’t ever think you have potential, just know you do. Well, I started mine less than 3 months from today. Just shine, and inspire others to pass on the legacy of inspiration! You will find your strengths, and challenge your weaknesses. You can take on anything and everything. Just put your heart out first, and let your mind proofread your mistakes. They say the sky is the limit, but they never reached a galaxy.😉 Take care, Lyza.

      1. Wow, excellent post! It’s a pleasure to read precisely what I was going for in the comment section of your post. I have connected with soo many new people just by commenting. I see these random referral places, and I’m like, “Wait, where?” It usually ends up in a place I commented weeks ago, now finally receiving views. Thanks for sharing!🙂

Speak your heart, proofread your mind.
