You say you want a
revolution resolution, and we all want to change the world our lives… Silliness happens.
As it is, I’ve been thinking about New Year’s Resolutions since November. I’ve tried to start some of them early, but they’re still resolutions for next year.
1. Exercise at least 3 times a week. You’re a much happier person when you exercise, and you want (and need) to take some time to care for myself a little more. It’s part of the reason you started this blog, remember? You wanted to get up every day and feel better about yourself and what you wore.
2. Lose weight (and inches). Tone up. Feel better about yourself.
3. No longer consume: soda or store bought cookies. Avoid HFCS in everything. Eat better. When you eat better, you feel better. Also, stop craving hot dogs.
4. Find full-time work. Do not settle for working 4 part-time jobs. Don’t be disheartened and depressed if no one calls you for an interview, just keep looking. Keep your hopes up, you’ll find something eventually.
5. Wear skirts (and dresses) more often. You own them. You put together outfits in your head involving your skirts and dresses. You just never put those outfits on. Start doing it! (Why do you feel like putting on a skirt takes more effort than jeans?)
6. Date around. Do not settle. Enjoy being single.
7. Wash your face every single night! Stop forgetting!
8. Save money for those trips to Europe you’ve always wanted. A little bit every month.
9. Get out of the house more. Stop being a recluse. Meet people. You suck at this, work on improving.
10. As an addendum to the above (#9), hang out with your friends more. Make time for them. Stop being a recluse!
11. Read. Purchase books more often. Spend less time on the internet. Read the books on your list.
12. Finish one of your novels that you’ve started. Even if it kills you. You need to stop starting new ones without finishing the previous ones.
13. Pay off your student loans. Completely.
14. Learn how to read patterns. You have all the materials to crochet things. Oh, and learn more than one stitch. That would probably help.
15. Become more organized. You desperately need to. And stop throwing your clothes on the floor in the evenings–you just have to pick them up again later.
16. Visit the Seattle Aquarium. You’ve been wanting to forever! Completed!
