It’s January 20th and I am just now getting around to a New Year’s Resolution post. Late, right? I know. I mean, I wanted to do one a long time ago but changed my mind. Tonight I’ve gone ahead and changed my mind again after seeing my friend Monique’s post over on her blog http://iriediva.com/2012/01/19/the-2012-to-do-list/ . She inspired me, lol.
Resolutions are tricky stuff. 99.999% of us will never continue with them past February either because we get too lazy or just completely forget them. Well not me, damnit! I’m gonna stick to them and look back on December 31 2012 with glee when I see that I’ve been able to accomplish everything I set out to do. Why? Because the fact that I’m going to tell you lovely people what they are means that I will have someone to be accountable to. Also, I’m keeping things REALLY simple and specific. So here goes (no one is allowed to laugh at me and my resolutions, hmph!):
For 2012 I want to:
-be able to bend over and touch my toes/the ground without bending my knees (how I will be able to do this is beyond me…I’m the least flexible person I’ve ever met in life)
-be able to order a meal at a Japanese restaurant without assistance
-save atleast 20,000 yen a month (about 22,000 Ja which is very, very, very low and doable)
-decide what I want to do in grad school, where I want to do it and how I’m gonna get it done
That’s it. Simple and specific, right?
Monique AKA Irie Diva also did something I’ve been meaning to do for MONTHS now, which is start a vision board. Hers is online but I’d prefer to do a real one to hang above my bed or something. It’s a great idea and the logic behind it makes sense. So I’ll get on that really soon too.
In the mean time, we’ll see how these resolutions go. There’s a looooong year ahead. I hope you stick to yours too! Take care.
P.S Watch my girl Fi’s video about the ridiculous things people say to people from the Caribbean. Hi-la-ri-ous! Enjoy.
