With 2012 in the rear view mirror, it’s time to look forward to all the good things coming in the new year! Ever wonder what is the first mistake most people make int he new year? We have answers, along with the words and phrases you have to leave in 2012 and more!

Scholars at Michigan’s Lake Superior State University are fighting hard to see some words and phrases banished from use in 2013

Their first banishment is the phrase “Yolo,” which is an acronym for “you only live once.”

Other overused, misused or useless phrases include “spoiler alert,” “trending,” “fiscal cliff,” “bucket list,” “superfood,” “guru,” “kick the can down the road” and “boneless wings.”


Of all the mistakes we will make in 2013, can you guess what the first one most likely will be?

BEFORE you break your New Year’s resolution, lose your gloves or read the Downton Abbey spoilers for this weekend…you will most likely write down “2012” somewhere instead of “2013.”


The New York Times Metro desk looks at the biggest stories to look forward to here in New York City in 2013, and they include:

  • The subway fare will go up In March to $2.50 a ride
  • Sugary sodas larger than 16 ounces will disappear in March
  • Bike sharing will begin In May
  • The Taxi of Tomorrow will go into service In December
  • Recovery from Sandy will continue and gun control in the wake of the Newton tragedy will take center stage
