What I want for Christmas!
In ways, I feel quite a lot older this time of year- and thinking back, I realize how living on my own has changed me a lot, and even when I think I am mature, I look back again and see how much I mature further.
That being said, I realize that this Christmas, what I really want is the comforting feeling of friends and family around- and just being happy to be there in their presence. Now, this Christmas, I am away from my parents and brother and other family (it's too expensive to fly to Canada- and my dad works long hours around this time of year) but I'm really happy to be welcomed by another family again this year (my bf's) and I am really looking forward to just.. spending a good time with people I care about. :3 It's weird, when I asked people "What are you doing for Christmas?" and they reply with a shrug and say "Not much, just a family meal" and I realize that.. honestly it's such a simple thing but it just sounds nice! I don't think I ever took it for granted but I think now I have more of an appreciation for it now that I'm away.
Anyway, this New Year's Eve I will be spending with Will and his friends at his best friend's house- and I've decided to contribute by cooking something- so I'm really looking forward to entertaining and having a good laugh and good drink too. I don't think I have a resolution- just things I know I need to do, and things I want to do that New Year's is a great push to get you to say "yep, it's time to get cracking on that."
What are your New Year's Resolutions? Have yours ever been successful?
This year, I want to build up my assertiveness. I think it will help me in a lot of situations- like dealing with stress and having more confidence. I think I want to start by wearing makeup more often and taking more care into how I look, too, so I feel more professional. I think that might help with having that frame of mind. I also love fashion but I am always unsure of putting anything other than jeans and a shirt together, so I want to improve that since I am 24 and I want to enjoy it now and not put it off.
Last year I joined a gym, and I'm still going to the gym and I've learned a lot about keeping healthy. So I want to have a healthier mind to accompany my body now :3
I also want to learn loads of new things- like I will be cooking pierogi for the first time on New Years- and I want to continue learning new things and just progressing with life all this year. And another big goal of mine is to own property so in a couple years time I hope to have that :3
Anyway, I'm starting to ramble now a bit. I haven't updated here in a while because I've been busy with work and other projects (and life in general) <3 I lurk still fairly often for about 5-10 minutes a day but don't usually have the energy to post. However, feel free to message me or vm me or whatever for a chat because I'm always up for that.
And let's hear about your Christmas too! I miss you guys! UPDATE ME! :3
