The Nineteenth Year//Resolutions
This 18th year has been pretty great. There was a snowstorm on my birthday last year, pretty rare for this time of year where I live. I grew closer with many of the people I work with. I made new friends. I started this blog. I really came to discover who I am as a person. I came to terms with myself. I graduated from high school and started college. I'm sure there are more things that I can't even think of right now.
This year on my birthday, there are a few "new year" resolutions that I want to make.
1. I want to record every cent that I spend this year, be it cash or a credit card, on a candy bar or college text books. I just think it would be something really interesting to look back on later. Whether I will actually keep it up is another matter entirely.
2. Something else I want to keep track of is the books that I read. I also think that would be something interesting to look back on. I'm also interested in knowing how many books I actually read in a year. Again, who knows whether I will be able to keep it up, but I will most definitely try.
3. I want to write. So often I have this urge to write, and this year I plan to satiate it. I've wanted to make a writing project 365 for a while now. I'm starting a tumblr blog separate from my personal tumblr and calling it A Year of Words. Check it out. I'm going to be posting a writing every day, usually in the form of my snippets, and using the website I mentioned in the last post for daily prompts. I know that some days are going to be busy and I may not get to write. I'm not going to be too hard on myself if I miss a day here or there, but I'm going to do my best to post as often as possible.
So, for now, those are my birthday resolutions. Where I will be a year from now, only time will tell. Hopefully I'll still be blogging. Hopefully I'll still have my wonderful friends. Hopefully I'll be just as happy and content with my life path as I am now.
