A New Year: 2018 Resolutions

Wednesday, January 10, 2018

Hello everyone!!! I'm back after an unintended break. It feels great to be back. This is going to be a short post.  I'm excited to be reunited with my babe next week so we can start shooting some new outfit posts. In the meantime, I've been getting caught up on Instagram. I don't mean to brag, but I've been killing it with my feed. I may be a little bit behind, but oh well. Speaking of behind, this resolution post was supposed to go up January 1st....my bad! It's better late than never though, right.

For 2018, I have a few different things that I want to improve. The list honestly gets longer and longer as I think of new things. I debated whether or not I should do monthly resolutions. I tried that last year, and while it worked for a little bit, it wasn't all that successful. So, I'm just going to compile the most important ones, and focus on them.

1. Skincare: Mark my words, 2018 is going to be the year that I clear up my skin. I've been struggling with adult acne and scarring for like the past 2.5 years. I'm tired of looking in the mirror and feeling self-conscious. So, I am going to stick to a morning and night routine and document the results. Hopefully I figure out what's causing this. 
2. Organization: I'm sure if my boyfriend is reading this, he is rolling his eyes. I am the worst at letting my junk piling up and especially bad at losing things. So, this is something that I want to improve on. I want to have a place for everything. NO MORE LOSING MY WALLET! From now on, I'm going to carry a purse to class instead of keeping things in my pocket.
3. Finances: This is more intended for a resolution once I graduate college. I want to keep a list of expenses in excel so I can plan ahead and budget.
4. Spiritual: This is something that I have put on the back burner for quite some time. I need to just take baby steps like reflect on my day or pray when I'm feeling anxious.
5. Fitness: Okay, I know what you're thinking....REALLY? I know everyone in their mother makes this resolution, but I'm not one of those people that is "I'm going to eat healthy." All I want to do is be consecutive at doing arm workouts. I used to "workout" with my boyfriend in the spring. And when I say workout, I mean we would do some pushups in his dorm room for like 15 minutes. So, if I could do a basic workout like that 4-5 times a week, that would be great! While I want to make complete this resolution, it's not one of my most important ones.

One goal that I have is achieve 1000 followers on Instagram. I'm sure to a lot of you, you're like "THAT'S IT!?" I've been stuck at 470ish for what seems forever. So, if you could do a girl a favor, and follow me on Instagram, that would be great!

My other goal is one that scares me, and that's to ensure my boyfriend and I find jobs near each other. With graduation being like 4 months away, I'm panicking. The thought of leaving him behind because our futures don't work out,  honestly is the scariest thing ever. He's my best friend and I can't imagine life without him. So, just wish us luck, that's all I can say.
