Ack!!! Happy New Years, everyone!
I’m kind of torn on how I feel about New Years resolutions– on the one hand, I want to be super anti-establishment and blow them off; on the other hand, I like goal-setting and working toward something. But when it really comes down to it, I think all of this “new year, new me,” stuff is absolute crap. What’s wrong with who you are right now? Why not take this new year, take who you are, and make something great? Why do you need to change? (I think it’s a similar principle to those who decide to chop off all of their hair after they break up with a boy– like, oh wow, you really showed him!) I’ve never thought melodrama an attractive quality in people, and people who slave over reinventing themselves at the start of a new year are the worst brand of melodramatic.
That all said, I do have goals for 2015, but that doesn’t mean yesterday I went out and bought a whole new wardrobe and started doing my make up differently and became a new me for a new year. Instead I woke up, was the same old me I’ve always been, and started doing things instead of changing things.
1. Start writing poetry again (because, poetry, you’ve saved my life in more ways than you could know)
2. Blog better, with more consistency, good substance, and getting a higher reach
3. Graduate magna cum laude (come on… just .05 GPA points to go!)
4. Get a job within one month of graduating Assumption
5. Rock the hell out of the Provoc‘s relaunch (coming SOON this January– way too excited)
6. Learn more about the Adobe suite, especially Illustrator and Photoshop (woohoo for better blog graphics!)
7. Stay in touch with my high school friends as a bunch of them start to relocate for jobs (don’t leave, John and Josh!)
9. Get a bangin’ Daytona body for NDA Nationals (read: work my butt off to make #8 a reality, get hot in the process)
10. Grow my hair so long I can belt it and wear it as a dress (NOTE: may not be entirely possible, but we’ll try)
