Here's To Another Year







Hello World! Yeah, I'm alive...I just haven't been posting via Blogger or Facebook too much lately, but that was so last year...one of the things I plan on doing more of this year is writing, so look forward to that!

When a new year rolls around you can usually categorize people into two groups, those who make resolutions and those who don't. I have always been one to make resolutions whether big or small, I find it exciting, kind of a test to see what I can do when I put my all into it. Last year I made a resolution to do what I wanted to do, and to let go of the insecurities I was holding inside me...that resolution took me down to the South of Mexico, where I spent 5 months learning Spanish, snorkeling, teaching ESL, working as a receptionist, and making some incredibly loving and crazy friends. 2011 was exactly everything I've been waiting for, and everything I needed. And now I'm here at the start of the new year kind of wondering what I want to do,what I'm going to do, and what I need to do this year. Like, for example...I WANT to just travel the whole year and forget about the world, what I'm going to do is what I need to do, like finish up school and use my traveling money for a car instead, focus on self improvement, and being "responsible." Because though I can write a novel about all the things I want to do and plan on doing, I won't get anywhere without working for them.



DREAMS MEAN WORK




Things I'd Like To Do This Year:

Do a TON of Charity work

Read Hunger Games Series

Stay in school (NO out of the country traveling during school)

Visit NY

Expand drawing and painting skills

Make new friends

NEVER SETTLE

Do something EXTRAORDINARY


There are probably a hundred more that I will come up with along the way...and some things I am keeping to myself, but whether I get through them all or only a few, I can at least say I tried for something.


 What do you believe you deserve in life?

                                                  Go for it.



Happy New Years  everyone!

  1. a few things -- first, love your posts. they're thoughtful and thought-provoking, which is something i always shoot for in my own writing.

    second, i used to do resolutions; but feel that why should we be limited to one time a year when we try to change things about ourselves and about what we do? but i can see the value in specific ones sometimes.

    third, where do you want to visit in NY? I live on the jersey shore, and might be able to suggest some places.

    fourth, the hunger game series is baller. i just started the 2nd book (just make sure you finish the first before the movie comes out in march!)

    fifth, I love this : "I need only one intimate listener in order to write."
    i've always wished i had more people that followed what i write, but in the end, one devoted follower is all you need to have a reason to write.

    okay, so this turned into way more than a few things... but thanks for writing so often! love reading it.
