I’ve been sitting here for quite some time now trying to write my 2013 New Year Resolutions and all I’ve had written down for about 4 days was this sentence. Usually by October of the previous year I’m prepared. I know what I’ve done wrong and I know how I’m changing it. This year, not so much.
I’ve been reading over my Year of Failure blog and I realized I tried way, WAY too hard. I mean, I was all over the freaking place. This year, I’m going with four important categories: Education, Health, Success and Happiness.
1) Keep my CGPA where it is
I’ve worked hard at getting my CGPA as high as it is. Despite my miserable 1st year Psychology 101 and Biological Anthropology mark, I’ve done pretty well for myself.
2) Stay organized – No all-nighters
(for school purposes only, of course)
3) Go to graduate school
Though really my REAL goal is to go away for graduate school, at least getting in is a step in the right direction
4) Get back to my goal weight
No No, no weight posting here
5) Drink more water
And hopefully begin to actually enjoy it, though that might be asking for a miracle
6) Cook more often
I’m an EXTREMELY picky eater and I tend to put a lot of boxed goods under the oven (I’d probably turn into a chicken nugget if that was a possibility)
7) Wear my mouth guard when I sleep
Don’t ask. But lock jaw is a very petrifying experience for me.
8) Get more sleep
Though this is probably a long shot. There aren’t enough hours in the day already, but here’s hopin’
9) To create/follow a blog schedule and keep my blog active and up to date.
Right now, being successful includes developing my personal brand/website, so there.
10) Save 4500 for graduate school
11) Last year was one of the most upsetting years I’ve experienced. There were a lot of changes going on in my life and my friend’s life which caused a lot of upsetting experiences. For those who know me, I’m almost always in a good mood. This year, I’m hoping to change that “almost always” to always.
Except when my favorite shows are cancelled for stupid things, because seriously what the funk?
12 Get more sleep
I know I said that already but this truly helps – a lot
13) Have more new experiences
Can I be any vaguer? I don’t mean fly to India and ride an elephant and get my own eat-pray-love montage, I mean try a new restaurant in Toronto, watch a unique video, see a band, etc.
14) Document those experiences on something more than Facebook or Instagram
15) Distinguish between acquaintances and friends.
I have a huge problem with this and I end up giving myself panic attacks because of it.
16) Really, just CHILL THE F. OUT.
But that won’t happen, who would I be without my neurotic tendencies?
