It’s a brand new year

2014 was insane and amazing, but it was also tiring and frustrating towards the end. I fell more and more in love with my mister, made mistakes, dreamed about killing certain someones, and overall, I tried to take better care of myself and curb my spending. I think “try” is the operative word in most of these cases because I totally fell off the wagon every now and then. Whoops.

I frequently say I don’t make resolutions at the start of the new year, BUT I am a chronic list maker, and I do set myself goals throughout the year – which just so happens to include January. Below are NOT resolutions, but more like continuations of what was set in motion.

  • Purchase prescription sunglasses
  • Find a decent sports bra Bought one online and using an Adidas one in the meantime
  • Join the gym (this is a WIP – I’m shopping around) and hopefully attend 3 days a week Joined the gym (now known as Jim) and it’s going well so far. Let’s see if this 3 a week thing will last.
  • Continue walking every morning, and extend my route
  • Find a good skincare routine and stick to it
  • Buy less and use more
  • Stop all the crap snacking and curb the bad food
  • Do my Learners (for the squintilliionth time) and get started with driving lessons *gulp*
  • Manage my anxiety (especially pertaining to driving)
  • Get my finances under control!!!!
  • Start saving for a trip abroad (not sure where yet)
  • Experience more

I may add to this ever growing list. Hopefully I can cross some things off throughout 2015.

"We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown."
