2014 Resolutions! :)

*Welcome to my blog if you're visiting from the  One Project at a Time link party! Thanks for stopping by! Hope you like my blog! Yes, I am a student but in case you were wondering of what my intention a starting a blog is & a little bit about me, click here!* :


Well, 2013 just passed us by, quicker than I ever expected it to! How was 2013 for you?

Since 2014 is here, it's time to make some New Year's Resolutions! When it comes to resolutions, some people are entirely against them - are you one of them? (If not, tell me why! It would be interesting to know!)
Well, I'm not - I consider the mark of the beginning of a new year a time to consider making a few changes here & there!

Feel free to leave your New Year's Resolutions (if you have any, that is) in a comment below! I would LOVE to know! :)

Anyways, since I'm not like Calvin, here are my resolutions: ;)                              

#1 - Establish a proper sleeping schedule!
School is absolutely crazy for me - now I even have 2 tests a week, finals coming up in a month & school from Monday to Sunday! I sleep at around midnight & wake up at 6:30 in the morning. It may seem like a decent amount of sleep, but most of the time, I'm still not feeling rejuvenated & wide awake for school!
I have no idea if my biological clock isn't functioning all that well, but I need to make sure it does!

#2 - Slowly go from FAT to FIT!
Exercise. Eating healthy. Weight loss. These 3 probably top the list of all resolutions ever made since people have started making new year's resolutions! Now, I'm not looking to lose weight but fat instead - one step at a time! I'm not setting any numbers for myself, like - "I want to exercise 5 times a week", or "I have to burn at least 800 calories a day" because I know I won't be able to achieve it! I don't even exercise 5 times a month! (Honestly, I think I burn calories now because of stress & laughing - which are not related normally, right?) ;) Here's a humorous quote:
"My New Year's resolution usually starts with the desire to lose between ten and three thousand pounds." - Nia Vardalos
#3 - Record life!
We all can remember events that have occurred, both good and the not-so-good, but I would like to preserve the good ones - either by taking pictures or writing down little things that made me smile/laugh!
Have you ever done something related to this? I've that a lot of people have come up with all sorts of things to preserve memories!

#4 - Change myself for the better!
You might be thinking, what do I mean by changing myself? Well, there are quite a few things about me that I would like to change! I've decided to club them together to make one massive resolution but I could easily split it into 10 smaller ones! It might sound kind of self-centered but if you think about it, it actually isn't! Here are some things I would like to change:
  • Being negative - When it comes to school, I'm positive! However, when it comes to everything else, I can be a complete pessimist! 
  • Being happy only on the outside - to others, I seem pretty happy whereas inside I'm not as happy as I seem to be. I would like to be genuinely happy this year! (And for the rest of my life!)
  • Stop comparing myself with others - I have what I have & I must accept it - accept the way that I am or change it the way I want to, the way that I think it would benefit me! I've realized that comparing myself with others & thinking about "have nots", is a waste of time!          
  • Bringing myself down: Now, when anyone ever says anything bad to me, it has no effect on me at all! But, when I think about my imperfections, I can bring myself down much harder than anyone else can. I am my worst enemy. (sounds kind of deep, doesn't it?) I need to learn to love myself & get past those perfect imperfections! 
  • My level of focus & determination! Since I do have some long term goals that I would love to achieve, I definitely need to be more focused & determined!
#5 - Enjoy life! Live it to the fullest! 
Again, another cliché but I think that if I achieve resolution #4, I will automatically achieve this one too! Sometimes, when you look back to the past , you might regret not doing certain things. You might think - why not? This year, I'm going to try to change my mindset & say "Why not?" Try to do things, big or small, things that I never would have even thought of doing! Live a little more in the present! 
 "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the things you did." - Mark Twain
Those are my resolutions for 2014! Make 2014 the best year of your life yet! :)
