New Year's Resolutions

Compared with the year 2010, 2011 hasn't been the most amazing year of my life. I had way too much school assignments and studying to do; I got betrayed by some of my ''very good friends''; I didn't travel much; I once again gained weight; I spent too much money; and so on and so forth. Of course there have also been some highlights like completing my first year of uni and writing this blog, but I'm a pessimistic person, so I always see the bad things first, sorry.

Anyways, I'm determined to make the year 2012 better, and even though I always break my new years' resolutions on the very first day, I'll try to make an exception and stick to them this time. 


Here is what I want to do this year:

  • STICK TO MY NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS

  • LOSE AT LEAST 15 KG - This is my biggest resolution and to stick with it, I decided to document the process on my blog at the end of every month. 
  • START DRIVING A CAR - I've had my license for more than a year now, but I rarely drive a car. I don't know why, but I'm so freaked out about it. I really need to shake off my fear and just start doing it more often.  
  • LEARN HOW TO COOK - I've already started this challenge last week, but there are a lot more dishes that I want to learn how to do. I'm turning 20 in two weeks, so it's about time I start doing this. 
  • COMPLETE MY SECOND YEAR OF UNIVERSITY - In order to achieve that, I need to start studying regularly and stop procrastinating. A bit of luck and less worrying when writing exams also wouldn't be bad...
  •  LEARN SPANISH - I've been taking some Spanish classes last year, and I'm taking the second part of them this year, so I hope I will be able to add Spanish on my 'languages I speak' list by the end of this year. 
  • GAIN SOME PHOTOGRAPHY SKILLS - I've always loved photography, but I've never taken any classes to learn more about it. I'm not sure if I'll be able to take any classes this year, but I want to at least read some books about it and start practising. I'm already experimenting with a white background for my blog photos, have you noticed? :D
  • SAVE MONEY FOR TRAVELING - I really want to go to the USA in 2013, so I need to start saving up money, stop my compulsive shopping, and get a summer job (I'm not sure if this will be possible, though. The economic conditions are pretty bad in my country right now).

















What are your resolutions for the new year?

  5. I hope you succeed most of your goals!
    (I'm not that optimistic either)
    Focus on your most important for you goals and I think you'll achieve them!
    PS driving is nice and since you already have a license begin driving again, fear is the worst thing about driving!
