It's already January 1st 2015! In April of this year my blog will turn four years old!

I'm going to be honest and say I am super excited for this year! I have quite a lot of resolutions and goals I want to reach, and I thought I'd list them here. To begin with I know everyone says if you really want to make a change you don't have to wait till New Year's to do it. I love symmetry, order, and structure, so if you're anything like me, the idea of a completely new year to begin a project or goal is like heaven. I'm not sure if I can make a distinction between goals and resolutions and this is just an extensive list to see what I'd like to do for myself.

RESOLUTIONS for 2015 (in no particular order)

  1. Drink more water!
  2. Read one book a month (Book Club!)
  3. Update this blog at least once a month
  4. Improve my time management and budgeting skills
  5. Pick a hobby and stick to it!
  6. Take better care of my face and skin (stronger eyebrow game)
  7. Lose weight by eating better and actually using my gym membership
  8. Fix sleep schedule (sleep at decent time & wake up to one as well)
  9. Significantly improve my French (maybe take on a new language)
  10. Better study habits and grades!
  11. Bad Bitch Model Status (BBMS MY NEW MOTTO)
  12. Attempt to study abroad this summer
  13. Dismantle internalized social constructs
  14. Involvement and contribution to charities and society
  15. Pick up a heavier work load at home
  16. Change my image
  17. Improve family relationships
  18. Think about post-bachelor degree options (grad school, career)
  19. Become an (even more) unapologetic, powerful, confident brown girl

There are the ones I can think about at the moment. The real question is how to implement these changes. I can make the plans, I can whip up a color coded calendar like no ones business but I don't stick to them. I am lucky that I have supportive parents that will push me to attain these goals, but it begins with me and if I REALLY want to do them. It may because I am older but I feel this year is very important to me. I'm aware of the changes in my life and those that surround me. Even with just my few girl friends, we're in different stages in our lives, different dreams, and careers. This year I turn 21 and begin my senior year of college. I just. . . sometimes I can't wrap my head around realities. 

2014 was a good year, It was full of ups and downs, but probably the most rewarding one yet. It was spent with such good company. I learned so much, that sometimes it freaks me out knowing one will never know everything. The more you learn, the less you know!

In this moment I feel like I am in a good place in terms of mental health.

& in 2015 I'm gonna keep going with my bad self.
