Over the course of 2012 so much happened. I am so glad that I have so much of it recorded through my eyes on my “little 365-day project.” I don’t want to forget to take a second and think of how I am actually feeling and actually take a second to listen to my million mile an hour thoughts. I want to be able to look back years from now and not just have the past be a faint blur. I really like how in a blog that whatever I am feeling or thinking will be there now, and five years from now when I am looking back on my college years. I have decided to continue with my blog, however I am going to change requirements to one update a week. Maybe some weeks I’ll have a lot more to say, but for now I’m only requiring myself one post weekly. If i can do 365 in a year I should sure as heck be able to do 52 this year. The past few months, with all the stresses and chaos of classes- I feel like my blog could have been so much more. Now I am going for quality over quantity. So here we go! Onto 2013, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store! I really hope this year is so much better than 2012 was.
So it’s the start of the new year and just like everyone I have begun thinking of how I can better myself, and things I would like to change this year. I started making a little list on my whiteboard, which turned into a big list that I started just trying to find room for. It made me realize… I sure have a lot of aspirations. I feel like I lost myself last year-specifically last semester. I really want to work towards being the old me again, and actually making time for fun and creativity. It makes life so much happier and fun. I want to also work on my attitude. I need to be more positive. This past semester I complained so much, and I know I wasn’t the most fun to be around all of the time. I let things get to me way more than I should have, and I wasn’t the happy optimistic person that I know I am. Part of that I know was not being able to run anymore with my ankle, part was my coping with my grandma, and I know a huuuge part was the overwhelming burden of school. Never have I ever had a semester take over my life and just make me so miserable as this past semester’s has. No longer is that allowed. I need something to get away from that. I have to take a break from school every now and then. I’ve got to make time for myself this semester because I’ve realized it is oh so important. I rarely got a second to myself, and if I did it was spent sleeping and catching up on that extra sleep. This semester will be different. It has to be. No matter how much I have going on, I am going to do my best to remember to make time for me. Below are the goals I have thought of… so far. And for the record I plan to actually stick with these, and check up on them quite frequently.
I really hope to pick up photography again this semester. Especially after receiving the wonderful dslr camera that I did this Christmas. The more practice I get, hopefully the better mine will look. 🙂 I took the ones below with it over the past couple of days, and I am so excited to see just what this puppy can do! 😉 I will post some as often as I can, and hopefully throughout the year, improvement will be seen. Oh, and ya know what? I just decided that I’ll be taking at least one picture with it a week and uploading it. That way I’m SURE to get some practice with it. No excuses.
