new years resolution


1. Sleep earlier, rise earlier - get off your phone, set a time, create a habit.

2. Read more - and not just shitty fanfics. Read them too. But read. Read classics, read newspapers, read magazines, read fictional books, read joke books. Just read.

3. Stay away from people who do not deserve you - you are worth a lot more. Fuck their shitty opinions.

4. Eat well - and I don’t mean diet. I mean, eat well. Eat healthy, indulge every once in a while, but don’t go overboard. Eat for your health and not for society.

5. Create a plan that will be enjoyable for exercise and just do it - no fucking around this year

6. Study well - an hour every single day. Just one hour of uninterrupted, that’s all it will take. Apprendre et travail dans Francais - Je ne sais pas si ce est juste, pardon a mon francais suiveurs

7. Pamper yourself- give yourself one hour. One hour a week to unwind. To wash your hair, leave in your conditioner, soak your skin, have a face mask, shave your legs, light some candles, drink some tea, put on nice smelling lotion and comfy pajamas, put on some nice music and sleep well.

8. Put in an effort - doing your hair nicely, putting on that clean change of clothes and a simple coat of mascara has a lot of power to make you feel a hell of a lot better

9. Learn new VOCAB - because why the fuck not? Write down your new words that you learn while reading, use them in conversations; expand your vocab, because when you are sitting in the exam room, you’ll be glad you have.

10. Plan an outing once a week - have something to look forward to, to be excited for. Experience new things.

11. Set small goals - 3 small things to do every day, and don’t sleep till you have them done. 3x365 knowledgeable achievements will be worth it - trust me

12. Meet new people - don’t be so quick to judge.

13. Love yourself - I’m still trying to figure this one out, but I’m beginning to feel like I am worth it.

14. Art - practice makes perfect. Work, and when you can’t work, learn. Discover artists and their pieces, their inspirations, their style. Document it. There is always something to do to improve, whether it be through practice or research.

15. Stick to these goddamn goals. 2015 will be the shit if I make it.

New Year’s Resolutions:

- Have more three a.m. dance parties. More late nights laughing with friends, more bonfires, more stupid choices and lessons learned. Enjoy youth a little more.

- Stress less. Cry less over homework, over projects procrastinated and tests piling up; save more tears for laughter, for unbearable happiness. Be okay with less than perfect.

- Learn to eat that second cookie. Learn when to load up on the greens and cut out the crap, and when to let go. Enjoy eating, taste everything. Stop stepping on the scale.

- Be more vulnerable. Stay up all night just to figure out the universe, talk about everything. Find that person: the one to tell everything. Then, tell them everything. Find relief in being understood.

- Be a little silly. Go to karaoke night even though you can’t hit the notes. Dance like nobody is watching (chances are, they’re not). Speak your mind even when your voice shakes. Be bold.

- Breathe. Go for walks every week, look at the stars whenever they’re out, take bubble baths. Find a space and don’t let anyone take it away. Live in the moment and love every second of it.

- Love yourself. Every last freckle, scar, and bump. Every missed question and failed idea, every little quirk. Love yourself until you understand why other people love you, too.

- Survive. Thrive.

It’s 2016. You need motivation? No, what you need is discipline. 

Force yourself to do things. Force yourself to get up early, make your bed, go get ready, and go. Force yourself to make plans for the day, and follow through with all those plans.
Force yourself to get to class early so you can look over the material. Force yourself to pay attention in class and turn off your phone or at least put it on silent. Stop texting your friends and going on Instagram in class. You are wasting your time, so why even bother going to class if your are going to be distracted? Be selfish. Stop giving your time to people that do not matter. YOUR TIME IS SO SO PRECIOUS. STOP WASTING IT!

This is the most important thing that you can do right now, take care of you and your education. Stop being distracted by the world and it’s never ending problems. This is the time that you need to put toward yourself because you are the greatest investment of your life.


EVERYDAY is a chance to wake up and give your 150%.
EXHAUST yourself. That is the only way to give your all. At the end of the day, you should be exhausted from working so much, from reading so much, from exercising so much.
Don’t go home because you are tired. Do whatever you need to get done and don’t come home until it’s all done. Stay late at the library. You feel tired? Good. That is how you know you are giving it your best. Go to the gym, and give your work out your all.
When you go home, you should feel like you are drained. You should feel like you have nothing left to give because you gave it your all. Because then, you can be proud of yourself and everything you have achieved.
Giving it your all is what matters. Give your all every single day. Discipline your mind and your body and you will become successful.

You fall back one day? That is O.K., try the next day. You are human, so accept your mistakes. However, love yourself enough to know that you will never give up working on yourself and your dreams.
THIS IS IT. THIS IS YOUR LIFE. Right now, no matter what circumstances we are all in, is what matters. Take advantage of today. Write down your dreams and force yourself to work toward them, one day at a time. 
THIS is your year. This is your life. One day at a time baby. One day at a time. Go ahead and don’t stop.

Important things to remember this year:

- drinking water everyday is probably the best thing you can do for yourself

- make your bed everyday because it will start your day off with one easy task done. look at how accomplished you feel!!

- keep your room clean, clutter makes your head feel cloudy

- you are a work in progress, don’t waste time trying to be perfect for people you don’t even know

- when you start to feel sad towards the middle of the day, blast 1989 too loud and force yourself to dance. you’ll feel better, trust me

- it’s okay not to wear makeup

- it’s okay to leave your hair a wild mess

- if you’re heartbroken, be sad for an hour or two and then realize you should be your number one priority and that you deserve better. you always deserve better.

p.s. you’re beautiful even though you never feel it

It’s truly mind boggling how much a human soul can change within a single calendar year. Look at what a mere 365 days have done to you. You have experienced immense suffering, heartbreak, and loss. The world has put you through the ringer, and I’m sure you’ve considered giving up more than once. But you didn’t. You beat all of the challenges the universe stacked against you and came out thriving. And you’ve grown so much because of it. Think of the person you were at this time last year. Do you remember her? She was so much more fragile, so much less experienced. Look at yourself now. Think of what life has taught you. Think of what you have learned. You are infinitely more strong, more intelligent, and more radiant than your former self. You conquered your life with such unprecedented ferocity and have created a wonderful world for yourself. You have blossomed.
—  and I am so proud of you.
2016 is your year. You will do anything and everything to make yourself a better person inside and out. This year you will spend time on your problems not others problems. You will put yourself first to gain every ounce of happiness you lost in 2015. This is your wake up call. You will make your dreams into reality this year. You will put your determination to it. This year is for you to be reborn to the person you need and want to be. 2016 is your year.
