2018 was quiet the year, wasn’t it, folks?
For me, it was a little less enjoyable then most.
In honesty, I was really, very depressed for a good part of the year.
I was unmotivated in everything I had passion for, and found myself to be an emotional…wreck.
That being said, I did have a few landmarks this year…
1. Turning Sixteen-While slightly exhilarating, still a big deal.
2. One Hundred Followers-Oh yeah, baby, we are doing SO well, I am SO thankful to everyone, for following me on this journey. It’s such a blessing, and I am SO SO thankful to all of you all.
3. I get to celebrate a year with my Guinea-Sherlock, Squishington, it’s been a ride, hasn’t it little buddy? (He can’t even read this, I might need help).
While I feel like it’s been a whirlwind, I’ve learned a lot more then I have hit landmarks.
I’ve learned about loss, and having to bounce back, the inevitable circle of poverty, and amongst other things, accepting that things SUCK, but God will definitely pull me through, and has a reason for it all.
I’ve made new friends this year, and I’ve lost some others.
I’ve made grown up decisions, like cutting myself away from toxic situations.
And I’ve been childish, like allowing myself to slack on my responsibilities, and getting winded by others so easily.
I’ve had quiet a few cry-sessions, argued with myself, and fought several feelings.
I’ve come out stronger, in some ways, and in others, well, we have some learning to do.
I had my first crush on someone for their appearance and soul, not just who I wanted them to be. (I’m learning that guys, are very, very cute inside and out, and I, am a very, very awkward taco).
I am a little bit closer to God, but I feel like I’ve moved behind.
I’m not proud of this year, I was struggling, physically, emotionally, and mentally.
I didn’t reach many of resolutions, but that doesn’t mean that we aren’t going to try again. That’s the beauty of all things new, it’s fresh, it’s a start, and it’s going to be BOMB.
So here’s to new years, and it’s resolutions.
Ah yes, glorious resolutions. I made a few, for this year, didn’t I? Well, somebody did get a camera, and they did hit one hundred followers, and someone is ready to start her publishing process (or just about).
I think that 2019, might be better then the last, let’s take a look.
1. Score High on the SATS
2. Begin the Publishing process for two stories.
3. Start my Youtube channel, and keep a consistent schedule for six months.
4. Reach 250 Followers on HaziWords.
5. Exercise at least twice a week.
6. Read through HALF the bible, in a year.
7. Apply for major colleges.
8. Get my Drivers License.
9. Remain on a blogging schedule for six months.
10. Remain on a Routine for six months.
11. Cut back on dairy.
12. Make one major long-term investment/purchase.
13. Save at least 50% of any income that I receive (from work or otherwise).
14. Develop Two new skills, and work diligently.
15. Learn One new language.
16. Spend time every morning praying and reading God’s word.
17. Try to become an early person.
18. Focus on sharpening my grammar abilities.
19. Develop better math skills.
20. Read Three Books a Month.
21. Write in my journal once a month.
22. Complete a challenge of some sort.
23. Release new Adventure blog with friends.
Perhaps last year I was a bit ambitious. I struggle sometimes to remember that I have a tendency to get lazy and slack off.
HOWEVER, something occurred to me.
I really like working for stuff.
Seriously, I enjoy the idea of earning something.
So I’ve decided to work on a reward system.
While it’s not yet perfected (I will release a perfected version soon), the general idea is simple:
Every Month that I complete a task, I earn something that might help with it. And every two weeks, a smaller prize.
Working out Twice a week. (I know, I know, it’s sad, I quiet literally NEVER work out, though, and am heavily out of shape, so that’s something I want to fix).
For every two weeks, I might reward myself with something small, such as new fancy work-out hair ties, or maybe a special smoothie.
One a Month, I might purchase myself something larger, like work-out weights, or fun work-out clothes.
It’s the small things that I want to help keep me going, and eventually, I want to be able to develope myself into someone who’s successful, and a little less of an emotional-all-over-the-place person.
Stay on the look out for updates, and make sure you keep me accountable!
What are your resolutions this year? How do you into to keep them going? How would you conclude your twenty-eighteen, was it a good year, or one that shall not be named?
I’d love to hear!
HAPPY NEW YEAR, FRIENDS! (Grammar experts everywhere want to murder me for using Uppercase letters and an exclamation point).
Remember to live your life like the ginchy story that it is!
