Happy day to all!
It is time for yet another New Year’s Resolutions update! Who’s excited?! ME!! I love doing these. Partially because it’s an easy post, but also because I get to think of all the things I’ve done. I’m even more excited about this post because I actually get to cross things off today! Let’s just drive right in and get to the crossing out part!
1. Work out regularly
… Now that I am back on campus and live two blocks away from the gym, I should really be much better at this. However, I am much more active! I walk over a mile every day to the law school. I also live on the second floor and the stairway is kind of steep so… some points?
Go to law school
I’M IN LAW SCHOOL AND I WENT AND I’M IN IT.
3. Redo my bedroom
I rearranged my bedroom earlier this year. I changed it back, but it did change… I know the goal is to paint it, but now I’m in Champaign and it’s a little harder to do.
4. Start vlogging
I posted a video to my Ghee Funk page! I did it a few weeks ago, but it was done! As far as my personal vlogging goal, it’s still a work in progress. Any tips from people that do have vlogs? I don’t even know how to get started…
Write on the blog more
I’m calling it. Really. This year, I have written on this blog more than the year before (and probably the year before that). I have completed this task.
6. Be more up-to-date on current world and domestic events
I apparently still can’t do this.
7. Read at least 4 books this year
I’m still working through “Lipstick Jihad.” It’s much harder now that I have so much reading to do here.
8. Be nicer to people
This one is so hard. I get so grumpy sometimes…
9. Learn an instrument
I will be playing guitar at my friend’s wedding next year, so I should really get on task for this.
Yes, that requires time.
Get U.S. Citizenship
On June 16, I became a U.S. Citizen. I changed my name. As of last week, I officially finished all the steps involved in finalizing that name change. I’m also a registered voter, yay! I’m coming for you 2016 Presidential Elections!!!!
Three out of eleven isn’t so bad. Usually I can’t complete any of my resolutions. I’m really trying to stay true to these resolutions. They’re all things I really want to do, but never complete. It’s mostly due to laziness and being grumpy. Those are two things that I really want to strike out of my life!
Hopefully the next (and final) check-in will have some major changes.
Thanks for reading!
