PERSONAL | 2017 New Year’s Resolutions

Just a heads up, I’m actually the worst at keeping new year’s resolutions. I moved to Toronto 6 years ago and every new year I would tell myself to get my driver’s license. Up to this day, all thanks to Uber, I still haven’t done my written test. With that said, I don’t want to rain on my own parade and jinx it for 2017. New year, new goals! Who cares how badly I failed in previous years, right?

BLOG AND SOCIAL MEDIA – I started blogging because of this course I was taking in the fall, but I am very determined to keep this going for as long as I can! This year, I’d like to put in more time to create content for my blog, learn more about photography, and keep a steady schedule for both my blog and social platforms, esp. my favourite – Instagram!

CULTIVATE MY HOBBIES – Playing the marimba was such a huge part of my life before university but I have barely touched my mallets the last few years. I fell in love with this beautiful solo piece a while back. Mark my words, I’ll master it by the end of 2017! (I also want to learn calligraphy, but one thing at a time…)

GET IN SHAPE – I know, I know. How typical of me. But in all seriousness, my health has been compromised the past 1.5 years because I gained 20 pounds from working full-time! For someone fairly petite, that’s a lot of weight to add to a tiny frame and honestly, I just don’t feel good about how I look. Can’t wait to explore different workout classes and learn to cook up some healthy recipes!

TIME MANAGEMENT – Starting in the new year, I will be working from home so time-management will become a challenge. I need to make sure I am productive and motivated, and that I don’t waste my time lounging around the house too much. With that said, I also have to learn to make time for my family, friends, boyfriend, and fluff balls!

TRAVEL AND EXPLORE – One thing I didn’t really get to do in 2016 was travel. Hopefully I will be able to go to Europe with my family for my birthday this year but other than of that, I would love to explore other parts of North America a as well. I was gifted some snowboarding gear for Christmas from my loved ones, so I can be sure to explore some new slopes!

That’s all for my new year’s resolutions! Do you have any new year’s resolutions and how are you planning on keeping them? Let me know in the comments below! Happy new year x
