Unofficial New Year's Resolutions
Late to the party? I don't like making New Year's Resolutions because they're so hard to keep! And I especially don't like telling people about them because then I'm held accountable. Still, I have had a few New Year's Resolutions in the back of my mind for the past month and thought to share them. I could use a little accountability. An accountabilibuddy, if you will. Be my accountabilibuddies?
Write More I wanted to be more prolific on my blog and with other projects and so far, so good. I am trying to blog every day, and the more I do it, the easier it is! I'm having more ideas and thinking more creatively on the whole. It reminds me of my college class where we were required to keep a journal and write three times a week. I wrote every day, pages and pages, and it was so amazing how easy it was! I've always loved to write, but writing more makes me love it more and I feel very proud!
Stop Eating Standing Up Since I'm in a hurry most of the time, many of my meals are gobbled up while fixing lunch for work, making coffee, or putting on multiple layers of clothing. I feel like this is bad. I feel like eating standing up is not good for me? Maybe this is psychosomatic. But I'd much rather sit at a table or, at the very least, on the couch to enjoy my meals before I have to be on my feet all day. And yet, I am failing miserably at making the time to sit down and eat. Help me, accountabilibuddies! Do you eat standing up all the time? I can't be the only harried fool who rushes around to get ready in the morning and ends up burping up breakfast all day as a result!
Stop Wearing Boring Underwear It's overshare o'clock! But yes. My underwear is (usually) very boring. I look at my roommate's pretty things and feel pangs of envy. Even if I'm the only one appreciating it, I feel happier when I'm all fancy underpants-y. To aid in this goal, I buy pretty things when they're on sale and try to incorporate them into my wardrobe. Sure, it's not always practical to wear lace-trimmed mesh boyshorts on a nine-hour shift. But I'm working towards the goal, slowly but surely!
What are/were your New Year's Resolutions? How have you been at keeping them so far?
