Cue the cliche New Year blogpost, I’m not resisting it.
I’m pretty sad to see 2012 go, it was a great year for me and the last one of my irresponsible college days. I’m looking forward to 2013 but it’s going to be a pretty daunting year. I’m finishing up my last semester of college (seriously? Where did the time go!) and then it’s off into the real world. Honestly, I’m pretty scared, I have faith that I’ll be able to get a job and survive financially but the thought of being out on my own and responsible and what not is kinda hard to get my head around right now. But I know I’ll survive and right now I’m focusing on making the most of the rest of my senior.
Whew, now that all that serious stuff is over…
Some 2012 highlights:
- I started my senior year of college!
(Which included lots of potlucks)
- Moved into an apartment
Apartment life is about a million times better than dorm life. It makes me feel a little grown up too 🙂
- I turned 21!
And celebrated with my first legal beer!
- I completed a graphic design internship
Lookin’ all business casual and what not.
- Went gluten-free
Which solved some of my digestive issues and made my gut one happy camper.
- I ran lots of races
- And I started this blog
It’s been a pretty amazing year and I’m hoping 2013 will be equally amazing!
I’m not big on resolutions. I really struggle with consistency so they last about a week before I let them fall by the wayside. So this year I actually want to focus on consistency. I want to set shorter term goals (I’m thinking along the lines of a month or so) and focus solely on one goal each month and work on creating habits, rather than having several lofty yearlong goals I never do anything about. I was reading Danica‘s blog and saw she was doing something similar and I really loved the idea. I did really well with my 30 days of yoga goal back in November and the “30 days of _____” is something I want to continue into the New Year.
I haven’t figured out exactly what I want my January goal to be, I’m thinking I want to start with meditation but I’m still brainstorming some ideas so I’ll let you guys know when I figure it out. I think sharing these goals will also help me be more accountable because I’ll feel pretty silly if I make a big deal about it and then don’t actually follow through.
How did you celebrate the New Year? I didn’t end up running that 5K and snuggled up with Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper on CNN instead. Such a party animal over here.
Do you have any resolutions this year?
