10 People On How They Plan To Take Their Personal Passion To The Next Level This Year



1. A karaoke queen in the making.


“My one true love is karaoke. The problem is that I have a terrible singing voice. But guess what? It doesn’t matter! I’m finally buying myself an at-home karaoke system so I can sing my heart out and dance like crazy in front of the mirror or a few friends whenever I feel like it. That’s the kind of carefree life I want to lead starting now, and I need a microphone and maybe some disco lights to do it.”

– Charlotte, 24

2. Revitalizing game night.


“Poker is my absolute favorite way to pass time. Always has been—ever since the days I watched my dad play with his buddies every other Sunday night as a kid. I play on my computer at work every chance I get, but the real joy is in playing with other people and trying to spot their tells and just the camaraderie of it all. So this year I’m getting myself an actual poker table and starting my own tradition of a biweekly game, including dad. It’s going to be great.”

– Jared, 28

3. A globetrotter at last.


“Last May I graduated from college without a clue as to what I should do with my life. I’ve been living at my parents’ house, applying to job after job, getting nowhere for months. The other day, it hit me that I was wasting precious time I could spend learning about the world by actually getting out there. I’ve always wanted to travel, but I’ve never had the opportunity, really. At least, I’ve never really seized the opportunity. Until now. Yesterday I spent the last of my saving on a suitcase and a one-way ticket to Europe. 2016 is going to be the year I travel with abandon. I’ll do whatever it takes to stay on the road as long as I can with my brand spanking new suitcase in tow.”

– Ella, 21
