OFFTOP 1.7.11 - A Fresh New Year

Our last OFFTOP is more than a week old and over 1,000 comments, so here's a new OFFTOP - the first started in 2011.

Let's talk about 2011. I love the beginning of a new year, because it stretches seemingly infinitely off into the future, full of promise and potential. It's a bit like a new baseball season, because really anything could happen in the new year and it's easy to take a sunny view of that range of possibilities. I'd like to think that I'll be smarter, fitter, more insightful, and happier at the end of the year, a better person in every way - despite the fact that I'll likely squander much of the year with the banal tasks of life and will wind up just a bit older and perhaps a bit more jaded.

How about you? How do you think about the new year - fresh with possibility, or just another month on the calendar? Will this year be particularly interesting for you? Do you expect to enjoy 2011 more than 2010?

If I think of additional prompts, I'll pop them into the comments section. Of course, all the normal topics are in-bounds as well.
