13 New Years Resolutions for 2013

Normally I don't really do New Years resolutions. Sometimes I think they are silly, and I never really accomplish them. But this year I am taking a different approach. Most of the items on this list are things I have been meaning to do for a while, and a lot of them have to do with this blog. I am going to make a serious effort to accomplish most, if not all of these things and I will keep you guys posted about it of course. 

This Year I Want To...

1. Take more pictures. I will try to achieve this by doing a “photo an hour” post every per month. I am a little hesitant about this one because I get up late some days (total night owl here) but this might motivate me to get up earlier. I have seen this on other blogs and it is really cool so I want to give it a try.

2. Do a sewing project per month (at least) and post about it. Now that I have some more free time thanks to the Christmas madness being over I think this is a very obtainable goal.

3. Try new craft projects. I have been slacking on my crafting (haha) and want to get back into that. University kind of ate my creativity, but I am done school and have a lot more freedom to have fun now.

4. Create more in general.

5. Spend less. A pretty standard goal, but I feel like I got a bit out of control at the end of the year so I need to reign it in. Save more also goes along with this. If I want to move out any time soon I need to start saving.

6. Advertise on other blogs. I haven't at all since I started this blog and I want to get my name out there some more.

7. Post more and plan more posts in advance so that there isn't a mad dash to put something up. This would also entail taking more outfit post pictures in advance (off days and weekends) to build up a stockpile.

8. Take more outfit pictures outside. The few times I have done this I have had so much fun, I have no idea why I haven't gotten around to doing it more often.

9. Read more for fun. I have already made a good start on this goal, and I intend to keep it up. I finally finished the 5th Game of Thrones, and have moved on the The Girl Who Played With Fire.

10. Watch more movies on my “to watch” list. I find we end up watching the same movies all the time, so I need to work on trying new ones instead of  re-watching the same few over and over. This goes for TV shows too. There is a huge list that we need to get through. 

11. Get up earlier on days off. I like to stay up late and sleep in, but I usually end up feeling groggy, grumpy and unproductive. I know I need time to relax, but I also like to get some things done in my free time. This kind of goes with the first resolution.

12. Become more of a fat activist. I became really interested in this movement when I first started blogging and I really want to become more involved with it.

13. Volunteer somewhere. I have been thinking about a few local museum/archives that would be really cool to help out at.

There are a few other things that I want to work towards as well, like getting my drivers licence finally, cooking more, etc. The goals listed above are more so the blog related top priorities for the year.
