Welcome back from the holidays! Hope you had a wonderful, relaxing time. Also, I’m curious: Are you making any New Year’s resolutions?

Here are my five resolutions this year:

* Write regular letters to my grandmother in England

* Practice blow drying my hair well, like they do in salons

* Stop biting my nails like a five-year-old (have you heard of this stuff?)

* (Try to) get over my elevator phobia

* Learn to tell a great joke

What about you? Alex jokes that his resolution is to spend another year talking about starting yoga. I think he can do it!
