We are only two-and-a-half months into the year and we already love the New Year 2013 for some reason or the other. We all may have different reasons to celebrate in 2013, but a common notion that binds us all is that 2013 will be an awesome year. With almost 9 months at hand, there is so much that we have yet to experience in 2013 so for your quick rear we have listed below top 10 reasons why 2013 will be amazingly awesome.
10. The world did not end in 2012, you’re still living:
Most of the 2012 passed in the fear of extinction. The world had silently prepared to face the calamity, which was expected to devastate everything. Nothing of sorts happened, and here we are in 2013, all safe and sound, ready to take on the New Year with more fervor and spirit, without the fear of dying on some random December day.
9. Another year: And you’re older and wiser:
With each passing year we grow older (I for one really rue the fact) but we also become a little wiser (a thought that gives me heart). 2013 is no different. Yes, it has made us all a year older, but it has surely made us wiser too – what! Even you have begun to realize that the world online isn’t really better than offline?
8. It’s a year of new possibilities:
We bid adieu to each passing with the hope that the New Year will bring more happiness and prosperity to our lives. We’ve all come into 2013 with a similar hope. So, we call it the year of new possibility – a year when we’ll allow our actions to speak louder than our words, a year of new possibilities for all facing the blunt of the slumping markets and raging unemployment.
7. The year to do something big:
We have new hopes and expectations from the New Year, a reason we set ourselves New Year resolutions, which we often forget as the year passes. In 2013, we’ll strive to fulfill our resolutions; we’ll struggle to realize our dreams, our dreams to become big, famous and handsomely rich – some of the most popular demands of almost all of us.
6. Robots will begin to assist you at home:
Japanese and Chinese have taken it upon their shoulders to make 2013 the year of robots – the service robots, who will take up the responsibility of looking after your home chores even when you are not at home. In 2013 it is expected that almost half of the population in Japan and China could be having a robot assistant at home, with the world waiting for their humanoid assistants.
5. 100th anniversary of the first modern crossword puzzle:
Word play dates back to thousands of years but it was only in the early 1900s that Arthur Wynne, an New York journalist introduced the diamond-shaped “word cross” to the game section of the Newspaper’s Sunday edition. December 21st, 1913, this game steadily gaining fame was dubbed the crossword. Since its humble beginning crossword has fascinated one and in 2013 it marks the 100th anniversary.
4. The woman’s year:
No, there is no official word that 2013 will be the year for women, but given the atrocities and inhuman attitude meted towards women, it is time we regard 2013 as a year for women and respect the mothers, sisters, daughters and other roles that women fulfill. Also, a survey conducted by National Association of Women Business Owners confirms that 2013 will be the year of the woman entrepreneur.
3. Employment opportunities will increase:
It’s more than mere optimism to say that 2013 will be economically more exciting year. It doesn’t mean there’ll be no more people roaming without work, but it surely means that there are chances that companies with see profits and will invite application for employment. Employment opportunities will surely rise as the economy catches ground in 2013.
2. Life will be better and awesome:
Without any fear of the world ending, with robots to assist you at home and with an employment letter in the hand, life is certainly going to be way better and awesome in 2013 than it has been in the past few years since the economic slump in 2008-2009. Like all the other years, 2013 will have its share of ups and downs but in totality it promises to be a better and awesome year.
1. We’ll realize money isn’t happiness:
When it comes to picking a job, we often find ourselves clutched in a question whether to opt for a more paying job or job that we’d love doing. A simple survey suggest that an increase in salary doesn’t mean increase in happiness, because no matter how much more in salary you earn, you will end up blowing it all up in your lifestyle upgrade. So, in 2013, do what you like and don’t stick to option of making wealth in every which way.
