Did you guys have an awesome holiday?
I feel like my head is just poking out from under the pile of blankets I've been under for the last few weeks. lol. Happy Christmas and New Years and all that good stuff, guys!
The mister and I stayed at home this year, so there was a lot of couch-snuggling. And new matching onesies. And our tiny potted tree. I ended up getting a bit of time off both work and school (yay!), so when I was sufficiently chilled out I had time to get to work decorating and putting everything in our not-so-new-anymore house in place. It still has a bit to go. It's just taking so long because open storage and not enough of it is proving to be a struggle. lol. It feels nice to go through every. single. thing and donate what we don't need, though. So nice.
Anyway: New year, new (big) goals - right?
I'm trying to keep it big and simple this year. Things I really really need to do:
That might be a dreary picture to start the new year with, but it's awesome at the same time, right? Genius. And sometimes I feel like we shoot ourselves in the foot with all we make ourselves aim to do at the beginning of a year. It can get to be too much and essentially impossible to actually do resolutions sometimes, right? I know I'm guilty of it.
I'm trying to keep mine simple this year.
I'm determined not to shoot myself in the foot with what I aim to do.
1: I'm in my third year of school and I don't have any work compiled in a portfolio of any sort. It's impossibly hard to do when working & taking classes. It's a priority now, though. I need to prep myself to work as a designer, come the end of this semester! 2: I started doing yoga a few months ago but with finishing up my tattoo (I can't yoga while it heals), finals, and the holidays my good run dwindled down to nothing. I love it. I need to make it a priority as soon as the last bit of the tatt is finished this weekend. It just makes me feel so good. 3: I have a million ideas and I need to finally pursue some of them. This is always on my list-to-do. It's frustrating. And a silly thing to be frustrated about. 4: Self explanatory. And so hard to do as a student. 5: Somewhere this year, I stopped taking pictures and recording life. I can chalk it up to just being too busy, but I miss it. I think I'm finding digital overwhelming and I don't want to go through folders of photos. At all. I might stick to need-to-be-more-thoughtful film shots, though.
Wish me luck! What are you resolving to do this year?
