Happy new year errrrbody!
William officially left for Germany on January 1st at 7 AM. I already miss him terribly but I’ve been trying to occupy my time. Today I did a total clean-up of my room, the whole shebang: vaccuming, windexing, re-organizing. It’s really, really weird for it to be so clean, even for me (since I’m quite the neatfreak).
As for the obligatory new years resolution post: to be honest, every single year my resolutions are the same. So I guess I kind of attempt to continously work on whatever I want to improve on, but in any case I suppose this year I will attempt to make some conscious half-assed effort to actually achieve my new years resolutions because I never really really do. That said, I wonder why people use new years as an excuse to implement such goals. Wouldn’t you think that if you really, really wanted to achieve something, you’d start on it right away? I usually do, by writing it on a post-it and tacking it up on the wall above my computer. Ask anyone, I always have tons of post-its on my wall. Currently there are ones that say “water everyday!”, “11:30” (which is supposed to remind me that I should be in bed by 11:30 pm at the latest everyday, and “yesterday you said tomorrow” (for running/exercise in general).
So I suppose those are my goals! Overall I think I want to be more healthy and be more conscious in making decisions that could impact my health…which I usually say every year. Besides that, I want to save money, because I have decided that following my undergrad degree, I’m going to go away myself for six months to a year around the world, which is obviously going to take a loooot of money. And finally, I need to learn how to drive. My learner’s permit has expired and I REALLY need to learn how to drive for the sake of myself and everyone who acts as my chauffeur when we go out. And I also want to learn how to drive because I want to be able to drive to the airport when William comes home to pick him up! Ha I’m so sweet (not)
It’s snowing like no tomorrow here which totally bums me out because Emily, Brent, Paul and Jake and I were planning on going down to Mount Baker tomorrow to have a last hurrah and shred up some hills before we all have to return to the monotony of school/work…unfortunately it looks like that’s not going to happen seeing that we all don’t really want to drive down in these conditions 😦 Maybe in a few weeks time.
