My 2017 New Year's Resolutions

  1. Be gentle with myself
  2. Don't have unrealistic goals + expectations
    start small!! start somewhere!!
  3. Forgive myself
  4. Be afraid
    push myself out of my comfort zone. as someone who suffers from agoraphobia + severe anxiety it's important for me to feel uncomfortable + to make myself do new things so that i don't just stay in my little bubble forever.
  5. Be healthy
    Everyone isn't the same so i'm not going to put GET ABS AND LOOK LIKE KYLIE JENNER (she's so hot) on my resolutions list. I just want to be happy with myself. Also, attempting vegetarianism + possibly going vegan would be awesome.
  6. LOVE MYSELF
    I struggle with this more than anything. i want to love myself so much. i need it
  7. Read, Read, Read
    i love books + i love to read + while an unread library is an important thing i want to read more + experience more through the pages of the unopened books scattered around my home. Two a month would be incredible, but knowing me, one will be plenty
  8. WRITE
    i hate rereading what i've written + i oftentimes rip out pages from my journal because it upsets me to see what i write but i want to change that. I want to be able to unapologetically put my thoughts + feelings onto paper.
  9. Listen to new music
    EXPLORE NEW GENRES! OLD MUSIC! NEW MUSIC! MUSIC NO ONE HAS EVER HEARD OF!
  10. Run more
    in the evenings, when i'm stressed. healthy outlet.
  11. DRINK MORE COFFEE
    i just want to be a Gilmore
  12. Stay hydrated
    for my health and so my plants on 'plant nanny' don't die anymore
  13. Go to coffee shops
    i love coffee shops, they sometimes increase my productivity + i love hearing the conversations. going to new and familiar coffee shops will help me meet people + integrate me into society (also it'll get me out of bed)
  14. Practice yoga
    i really really really (the second + third really made this seem insincere) want to become a yogi + to be super toned
  15. Get a bike + ride it
    hopefully to cool yoga classes + coffee shops
  16. 30 minutes of Duolingo every other day
    I already take French 3-4 five days a week, but i strongly advocate for the fact that American school systems don't start teaching foreign languages nearly early enough to become fluent by the end of our high school careers. So, i would like to use Duolingo as a reinforcement + to become fluent
