New Years Resolutions

Advertisements

This is it, finally! The last day of 2019! And thank the gods we are done! A tradition that some people have for the new year is making resolutions, or promises, to themselves for what they’re going to do to better their lives. “New year, new me” kind of thing. I normally don’t do them, but I’ve started some habits that I want to last, and want to try new things to continue to improve as a person. I guess the best way to do this is by a list, huh? Cause you know, I love lists.

First Thing
Keep on cooking and baking my own stuff. Cooking has become such a fun hobby for me that I really want it to last. I’m saving money and have got a healthier lifestyle from it. And baking, I made sugar cookies with a friend right before Christmas hit and they were so much fun to make! I’m going to for sure keep that recipe for the rest of my life! They may have been simple, but man was it a blast to make them! So yeah, definitely going to be the cook in my house! Or at least try to be.

Second Thing
Laugh more! I’m a very easygoing kind of person who was burdened this year by too much crap, so come next year, more goofy pictures, more vine videos, and more relaxed and laid back choices! Too many people act like the world owes them everything and that laughter is a crime, and I do not agree at all! Life is fun, and I’ll make sure to have tons of fun this year! And yes, I love vine compilations, so whatever. Maybe I should attend a comedy show? Actually that sounds amazing! I think there’s a local bar that does comedy once a week, I should go and stop in.

Third Thing
Financial stability. I work two jobs, manage this blog, and sell things on the side (crafts and such) so that I can live. I want to be able to live somewhat comfortably, and be able to afford the houses in my area. So whether I can get a job to back up my lifestyle or if I can get this blog to the point I’m making something (wink wink sponsors) that I can stop working finally, at least in retail. In the mean time I’m building a savings account, I’ve got like $50! (The little victories you know?) I’ve also applied at a few places just to see if I can get a new and better paying job overall.

Fourth Thing
This damn book! I’m going to finish it! I figure if I keep getting on my own case for it I’ll actually finish it instead of putting it off. Well, even if I don’t finish the book, just writing more. I’ve gathered too many drafts of ideas that I want to make into either short stories or even eBooks eventually. Come the new year I’ll probably have too much time to myself, so I should be able to at least make a name for myself as an author.

Fifth Thing
Plants. I want trillions of plants. I’ve been watching home renovation videos on YouTube and it’s slowly consuming me. They’re helping me get inspired with decorating and learning to do reno’s myself. Having plants will also help me feel less lonely I think, not that I’m a lonely person, I’m just in constant need of attention. I’ve also got to make sure that none of them hurt Shadow, I’ve had him too long to lose him now. Plus plants make fantastic decor because I have none of that in my house.

But Yeah,
That’s it really. Some resolutions to keep in my mind for the next, at least couple months. I know I’m not the best at following things like this, but I’m going to try. Stay tuned (I know this is my new catch phrase, and I’m sorry) for me botching this! Stay safe out there! So come January, regular showings of your favourite program will move to Thursday at 12pm Vancouver time. And, well, I don’t know… See you next year? Is that cliché ? Because I’m doing it anyway, since I made myself laugh. Anyways…
Thank you so much for this whole year, you’re amazing!
