2013 - the Year of the Snake

Wednesday, January 9, 2013 by The Press in Columns

The New Year of 2013 has begun, which under the Chinese calendar, is the Year of the Snake.

A new year excites optimism and the grand possibilities of future endeavors. January ignites in us the feeling that we can become who we strive to be, travel to new places and live the life we've always wanted. In making resolutions for the new year, it is best to set small and specific goals on a weekly basis, if you want to see the results.
