2013 is looking so bright! The brightest. I say this most years, but this time I’m even more serious because there are already so many great things to look forward to. New albums from Holly Miranda and Tegan & Sara. Pitch Perfect being released on DVD. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting the Golden Globes. No more Twilight movies, not this year or ever. 2013 might be the year that you graduate or move overseas or get a great job or get a girlfriend or marry your girlfriend or start a band or accomplish other great things. As my father never told me, if you can dream it you can do it!
Here’s a little uplifting musical accompaniment as you power into January and make 2013 your best year yet. Go slay it, tigers.
