I currently don't have a goal set up for 2013... I may make one later, but it definitely won't be more than 100 'cause I don't think I have time for that thanks to university...
Anyways, I just wanted to point out that that was probably the first year where I made a goal at new years and actually succeeded in completing it.

I know it's late, but Happy New Year! Hehe ~
