2010 New Year

1 Comment

I’m not going to lie, my first reaction to 2010 is: Eh. Simply because I have such a big event happening in 2011 that I’m excited for! (um, the wedding)

However, I do have much to be excited about for this new year. This summer I’ll graduate college, so I’ll have a lot to do after graduation, like decide what I’m going to do with myself! Where to live, where to work….

But, I guess I also have a lot to do before graduation. And that’s where the new year’s resolution comes in.

I have resolved to continue with some goals I had already laid out for myself—only this time, to keep on a clear and steady path to those goals.

  • Downsize. I have so so so much STUFF. The essentials: clothes, bath, school books, school supplies, beauty products. The hobbies: Paper crafts, sewing crafts, paints, paint brushes, canvas, paper, glue, markers. The electronics: Wires, wires, wires. And more. The problem with this stuff is that I have an overabundance of it and it clutters up my tiny bedroom and drives me crazy. Not to mention the things I have in storage from high school and even junior high. This goal is directly related to graduating college and, of course, getting married. I don’t want to bring so much junk everywhere with me after I graduate. I know that I won’t ever be able to live a minimal lifestyle, simply because I have so many crafts—I always think about putting all of my crafts in storage, but I literally do use them at least every other week, so it’s not like I’m holding onto them for no reason.
  • Downsizing will help this next goal out tremendously—I need to be more responsible about cleaning and organizing. Part of my problem IS the fact that I don’t have enough space for my overabundance of STUFF, so once I downsize, I’ll be able to control it better. However, that still leaves a lot of cleaning responsibility. I just want to handle that responsibility better so that I don’t carry those bad habits with me after graduation.

Of course I have more goals than that: enrishing my relationship with God, yoga! eating healthier and more consistently, being more responsible with homework, and being a friendlier person. Those sort of explain themselves a bit more than the first two.

Anyways, I’m not too keen on the big new year’s resolution hype—it seems more like a joke to many people, now. But at the same time, there are several ‘problem areas’ in my lifestyle that I struggle with, so let’s call them resolutions and get on the ball!
