Somehow a photo shoot with a pineapple seemed like a good idea at the time, so I’ll say this picture is representative of one of my New Year’s resolutions: to relax, live a little, not take myself so seriously. It was taken on New Year’s Eve with my pal Joseph, a person that constantly reminds the people around him to bring out their inner child. After all, he’s the guy with a Psyduck Pokemon tattoo on his butt cheek. If that ain’t keeping your inner child alive, I don’t know what is.
In 2016, I want to say “yes!” more often when people ask me to go out. I spend a lot of time wondering why I’m constantly called a grandma or why I always miss out on fun, but a lot of it has to do with me being too lazy to brush on some makeup and iron an outfit. I want to get my anxiety under control by finding a form of exercise that works for me (thus far, yoga and kickboxing are really helping!) and get my finances under control. Some of my other resolutions/goals:
2016 GOODREADS CHALLENGE: Who knew a book about Edgar Allen Poe would be such a bore? At the end of 2015, I was approximately a half book away from my goal of reading 30 books for the year, but I just couldn’t get through that last one. So odd because I’ve never come across a book I didn’t like. I’m being a bit easier on myself this time around with only a 20 book commitment. I’m taking recommendations if anyone out there has one!
#Project365: Doing a 365 Project means I’ll need to get creative and take one photo a day in 2016. In this case, it’ll be 366 photos since it’s a leap year. With this project, I’m hoping to get better at capturing things from my perspective by tagging along with photog friends, taking a class or two at a local community college and hopefully joining in on some more Instameets! You can follow along on my Instagram.
REBRAND: I feel like I could be doing so much more with my little corner of the Interweb here. Before this year is through, I hope to create a logo, come up with a website that actually showcases my personality, bring back my weekly Current Obsessions posts to feature more brands and maybe, possibly finally share this blog with people I know?
