Your D.C. Editor's New Year's Resolutions — Share Yours, Too!

Here's a personal truth — I never make New Year's Resolutions. At least, not ones that last longer than, oh, a day. But for 2012, I'm making a determined effort. I'm pasting these personal goals everywhere (on my bulletin board, in a notebook, on this site) in the hopes that I'll actually stick with a few. From silly to serious, this is what I'm hoping to achieve in the coming 12 months — share your resolutions in the comments!

"I've never been to Paris — it's on my bucket list — and I'd be thrilled to take a trip in 2012. Give me some baguettes, retro French pop tunes, flea markets, plenty of cheese and wine, and I'll be set."
