Resolutions? Not for Me

It’s time for everyone to make their New Year’s resolution lists! Just don’t count me in. πŸ™‚

I have some plans for this year but i’ll just keep them in my mind, no need to write a list. I am currently away traveling. How exciting, right?! I love traveling! I feel like I am already starting the year on a high. I will have tons of pictures to show you when I get back. I thought today I would make a list of the highs of 2016. The list can be something I can look back at and remember all of the nice moments I had in 2016. Just like many others in the world I had some lows in 2016, but I do not want to post any negative things.

2016

  1. I traveled to Disney World in January. Some entertaining moments came out of that trip.
  2. I switched jobs, which made my schedule way easier.
  3. I finished the one class I was taking in the spring, which led to me enrolling in a full-time degree program. Β Another degree!
  4. I tried a barre class for the first time. I was absolutely awful at that.
  5. Fell in love with kettlebell classes
  6. Visited my siblings in California
  7. Rented a beach house with friends. Fell in love with paddle boarding.
  8. Had too much fun laughing at a happy hour on July 4th
  9. Saw Aladdin on broadway. After the show we got a behind the scenes tour. I STOOD ON A BROADWAY STAGE!
  10. Went ice skating with friends in Central Park
  11. Painted pottery.
  12. Went to Hershey park with Holly
  13. Experienced my first wine tasting in Charlottesville, Va
  14. Ended the year in Europe
  15. Tried my first paint and wine class
  16. Dressed as Daisy Duck for Halloween
  17. Finished my first semester for my second degree
  18. Saw Amy schumer’s comedy tour with my sister
  19. Drove along the Pacific Coast Highway, which means I also drove in LA so lets hope I never have to do that again. haha
  20. Hiked in Malibu
  21. Got a new puppy, Charlie

I am sure there are many other great things that happened in 2016, but these are the ones that immediately stuck out.

Have a great day!

 

New Year, Same Me

 

It’s New Year’s weekend! I tend to see myself as an easily excitable person. Holidays, friend’s birthdays, and weddings make me very excited. I find myself thinking of cute decorations, presents to give, and picking out what I should wear; However, when its comes to New Year’s Eve I am never that excited. I have been fortunate to spend it with friends and family in some great places. During my childhood, I would have a sleepover at my friend, Melissa’s while the grown ups partied downstairs. Melissa and I would have a blast with all of our other friends. Once, I became an adult I realized a lot of planning goes into the festivities but it never becomes as great as we assume it will be. We tend to have high expectations. As a kid, I just wanted to be around friends singing and dancing to whatever new song Britney Spears was signing on the radio. Now it seems like New Year’s Eve celebrating is all about finding the perfect location, outfit, and date. Soooooo….a few years ago I stopped treating it as this grand night with huge expectations. Now I choose to spend NYE doing something I enjoy, whether it is dancing with friends or watching a movie. This year, I will be ringing in 2017 with one of my close friends.

The point of this very ridiculous paragraph is that NYE doesn’t have to be the best night ever with perfect instagram posts and the best date. Enjoy the night! You can have many other amazing nights that do not have to be on December 31st. Don’t stress about the New Year celebrations. See you next year! πŸ˜‰

Nightmare

Happy Friday!

I am typing this with a hot cup of tea. I woke up way too early from a scary nightmare so here I am writing up this post. Isn’t it frightening how real nightmares can seem? Anyways it’s Friday so I am sure many people are waking up with a smile. πŸ™‚

Breakfast this morning was an omelette with a banana on the side. The omelette may not look appetizing, but it is ridiculously good.
