New Year’s resolutions

By Senior Airman Michelle Patten
Air Force Public Affairs Agency

It’s the time of year to roll out your New Year’s resolutions! Whether you share them with your friends on social media, create a vision board or resolve to complete your goals from last year, many people consider the beginning of the year a time to reexamine their ambitions.

Aside from several work-related goals, the members of the social media team took some time to consider their personal aspirations as well. Here is what we came up with:

Capt. H: We are expecting our first baby this spring, so I’m making it a goal to get back in condition to run another race by the end of 2015!

Senior Airman P: 1. I want to finish reading a new book every week.

2. I’d like to cook more. 

3. I want to spend more time with my husband while getting better at shooting, his favorite hobby.
