Remember those New Years & Bat Fit resolutions I made? Yeah, don't worry, me neither.
So to give everyone a much needed reminder. I'd basically resolved to:
1-Manage my time better
2-Do better academically
3-Think bout my future
6-Lose 20 pounds
Mmm, man, I wish I could say I've been following them but to be totally honest, classes started, things got stressful, and I proceeded to completely forget about these. Hahaha. Oops.
On the plus side, I kinda made some progress on a few of these. I took the bus for the first time (went to school and came back all by myself. Woo for being a grown up!). I went to jury duty, got my first key made (fun fact, I got a key to our research lab before I got a house key. Haha how weird is that? I like to joke it shows how committed I am to science XD), and am going to take my DMV test on Monday. So yay seems like I'm doing really well on #5 on the list.
Plus, I've been challenging myself to do something that kinda scares me at least once a month. You know small things (like talking to strangers in the elevator or telling someone what I honestly think) to get myself to step out of my comfort zone and trying something new. It's been a bit scary but also exciting and fun. I've learned a lot. I think I'd also count that as being adult-ish and creative, too. I've also been keeping a jar where I put in good things that have happened to me (thanks Professor Z for that wonderful idea!) and been thinking bout my blog so I think that gets #4 & #10 a tad too. I've prioritized sleep (#9) over all-nighters (#2) a few times as well so I'm not sure whether that counts or not. It's like I kept one resolution at the expense of the other haha.
To be real though, the other numbers I haven't even thought about. The most glaring is #1 Time Management. The more reckless I am about how I spend my time, the more I realize how valuable and important it is. It's like this academic session was a colossal mess and all because I couldn't get my time in order. So yeah. I've really got to work on that. My eating and exercising could use some help, too. I haven't done anything remotely physical and swing from the extremes of either eating too much or too little (aka starving myself. so no bueno). That needs some overdue attention. Not to mention, I'm running away from my academics and future again. So yeah. I guess I could use some work on a lot of these but for now, I'm just going to celebrate my successes with some soup and pledge for better tomorrow.
How have your resolutions been coming? Let me know in the comments below! :)
