I will always be a fan of new year resolutions because they help me stay aware of my goals. I am excited for this new year mostly because I have no plans. Other than college, I have no idea what will come my way. And for the first time ever a little unknown is okay with me.

Looking back I am so proud of all that I accomplished in 2017, so I'm hoping for the same results this year too. I have one serious goal that needs special attention this year, along with a few others. Let's dive into my list!

Drink more water. This past semester I have really improved, however, I still need to drink way more. I hate that I have to remind myself to make a glass of ice water, but it needs to be done.

Get a handle on my health. I have seen so many signs lately and it is time to pay attention to them. This January my goal is to survive the whole month with a no sugar challenge because I need a good detox. An exercise routine I can stick to at college is also an essential during my time at college.

Figure out my anxiety. My stomaches have been controlling my every day, and it's horrible. I don't know where it's coming from, but it's peeking through in the middle of the night or during my classes. It is not fun.

Graduate early. This goal is very up in the air, but I can't stop thinking how nice it would be to finish late December. We'll see because it is a lofty goal, but nevertheless I know I can do it. Lots of work and time will be required, yet college debt sounds worse, haha.

Write more words. I have always been a lover of beautiful stationary from Anthopologie, yet finding time isn't easy. Plus being at college in the dorms, my trust dwindled fast so the journals were brought back home, and I stopped journaling all together. I hate that. So this year I want to challenge myself to just write one line a day. I have new notebooks from Rifle Paper Co, and it's time I filled them with my personal thoughts. Hoping this will improve my writing style too.

p.s. I wanted to include a little survey to hear from you guys. If you could fill it out, it would mean the world to me!


  1. Great list of resolutions! I always have a hard time drinking water daily. I just get so bored with it after awhile!
