Usually when it’s a new year I go over my New Years resolutions from my last years blog post, but I deleted that post with my last blog. Because of that I decided to try something new this year. The last year has my life has been crazy. I got my first job, met the love of my life, and I got to live my life for the first time since I was 14. I decided I would put in a few of my favorite moments from this year and also some milestones.
Picnics: At the beginning of summer my boyfriend took me to this amazing garden for the day. It was so pretty. We got to eat lunch on perfectly green grass and look out on the lake, across the lake is the city. The day was amazing and the garden was amazing.To close the summer out we had another picnic at the park near my house. I also attempted my first bento box and after we ate we went on the swings because I still act like a child 80% of the time.
Workouts: Working out has become so important to me over the last year. It’s something that makes me happy and feel good. When I don’t work out for a few days I get pretty moody and get annoyed with everything. I can’t believe how far I’ve come this last year. I’m very slowly getting abs and I’m learning what works for me.
Jobs: I’ve has three jobs this year. Two of the stores I’ve worked for have closed, one closed four days ago. It’s been a huge learning experience for me. It was hard learning that first store was closing, because of how much I learnt and grew there in just few months, and because of how much I liked the people that worked there, but it ended up being for the best. I started talking more while I worked there, I learnt how to work in retail, and it was an amazing first job. (the picture is taking while we were packing up the store.)
Health: I don’t talk about my health to much on my blog because it’s not something that I talk about in my daily life. The past few years of my life have been filled with doctors appointments and pain, but this year I only had to see my specialist three times and only had four crohn’s flair ups. I had to go to the ER once this year and I got a virus, which both set me back a little bit from where I wanted to be, but I still got to my goal and that isn’t something I thought would ever happen.
Ice skating: I went ice skating twice and I managed to not cling to the wall. Honestly it was so much fun. I fell a few times the first time I went. I went just before Christmas and I somehow only fell once and that was my boyfriends fault(don’t tickle people while ice skating.)
I haven’t thought much about my New Years resolution this year, but I’m still going to make a few because they really do motivate me.
- Keep working out
- Try hard in school
- Keep writing
- Try new things
- Go for what I want
- Give myself a break sometimes
- Find more things that make living life incredible
- Continue learning new things
Some of these are kind of vague, but I’m trying to give myself some room to grow.
Happy New Year!!
