The Quintessential New Year’s Post

Happy New Years!!!!!!


yes, that is a candy cane…

It’s that time of year where everybody makes goals and resolutions they swear they’re going to keep and then one month later it’s back to the chips, the wine and the unused gym membership. (It’s also that time where everybody writes the same old cliché I just did. 3 cheers for originality!)

Either way, here is my list of things I would like to accomplish this year, in no particular order 🙂

#1. Be a better friend. This is something I’ve really been thinking about for a while now and intend to make a great effort towards accomplishing.

#2. Really work at my Spanish and French. I’m embarrassed at the state of my languages right now. It would be great to be able to devise some sort of system where I get a little dose of both of each daily/weekly. Might right a post about it.

#3. Get a B+ in French, A in Latin American Studies, and straight As in all my college courses. Totally doable, right?

#4. Journal consistently.

#5. Spend less, spend wisely, save more. A little tip, keep every reciept for everything and total it at the end of the month. It’s a really good way to keep track of everything you spend. I even have a recipt for 36 cents from Bulk Barn. It’s become a (very good) habit.

#6. Visit 3 countries. I have my eye on two right now but contemplating a third….hmmm….

#7. Travel more within Ontario. Because it’s mine to discover.

#8. Get involved in my new school community. I start at a new college in January, in addition to the uni I’m currently at. Gotta make the most of this new experience!

#9. Blog often, blog well. I’ve got ideas and ideas and ideas…..

#10. Complain less. I’ve found that’s all I do sometimes. It can’t be healthy.

#11. Read 30+ books. That was my goal for last year. I only made it to 12 and in all honesty, I read about 6 of those a month after I moved to a new place and my commute got 30+ minute longer.

That’s it for now. I would say exercise but ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah that’s just not gonna happen. I have a more personal list that continues from last year. I’ve slowly making my way through things,such as “knit a sweater for my brother.” Earlier on the list “learn to knit”.

I’m curious to know, what is one thing you want to accomplish this year. Leave a comment and let me know!

Cheesy, blurry, first selfie of the year!
