2015 Resolutions: Update!

happy-new-year-2015-resolutions-wallpaper-425x500

So, a little while ago, I made a post about the resolutions that I was making for myself this year. I decided to take a little time to share how things are going with you guys.

I’ve been exercising more (Hopefully I can keep this up for the rest of the year), and even though it’s only been a little over a month, I can already start to feel and see the difference it makes. At least, in my dancing. 2 additional days a week on top of dance practices is a good place to start, and I may be able to add a third day if things continue going this well!

Drinking more water has also been great for my skin, although it’s probably been beneficial to a whole lot more than that. Some days, I still don’t drink very much water, but those days are becoming fewer, so that’s an improvement. I’m not quite at 6 cups at day yet…most days, it’s more like 5. But that’s still better than before.

This has actually been the most difficult resolution for me. I’m the type that feels the most productive, or at least the most awake, at night, so I can’t really get myself to sleep earlier most days. However, I have been getting more sleep, mostly since I sleep late only when I know I can sleep in the next morning. Well…usually. During busier times (Like this week), it’s been a bit of a struggle.

I also added another New Year’s resolution a little while later, and this one isn’t as easy to keep as I thought it would be. It has, however, made me feel a little more organized, writing down what I have to do when.

Anyways, I hope I will continue to be this productive during the year…or at least continue being able to keep my resolutions!

And to those of you who also made resolutions this year, and readers out there in general: I hope that you guys are doing well, and that the start of 2015 has been a good one!

Another New Year’s Resolution…?

4.1.1

So, I made a post about a week and a half ago listing my basic New Year’s resolutions and, thanks to a not-so-impulse buy, I may have another one.

For the past 3 months or so now I’ve had my eye on this beautiful planner…the pages all have varied designs and there are quotes sprinkled throughout, paired with romantic pictures. They also have spaces for lists such as restaurants that you want to try. It was a nice size, too…the only not so nice thing? It was $15.00, and I’ve never been a huge fan of planners…I always end up forgetting about them.

However, I saw this a few days on sale for $10.00, and I had a 15% off coupon, meaning that it’d only be $8.50. So I decided to go for it.

The fact that I was also buying a birthday present for my friend and needed ~$7.00 more before I got free shipping probably had something to do with it.

I’ve added this to my list of New Year’s resolutions…get organized (At least, more organized than I am right now)! I’m hoping this pretty new planner will help me with this.

New Year’s Resolutions

I know it’s probably a bit late for this, but I’ve never exactly been one to really rush things…I took a little bit of time to think of a few New Year’s resolutions, and I thought that writing a post about them would help motivate me to keep them a little bit more.

I decided to keep them nice and simple, but also a little specific so that it’s easier to keep. Like they say…small steps.

Alright, so here we go…

1) Exercise more: I’m already part of a dance team, but I don’t do much outside of that. I want to start working out a little more at home, rather than just doing dance. I’m shooting for at least 2 days a week on top of my dance practices and such.

2) Drink more water: I have a bad habit of not drinking much water, or liquid in general. I’ve made a little improvement, but I’m only drinking ~4 cups a day at the moment. There are a lot of benefits to drinking water, and it’s seems like such an easy thing to do, but I tend to forget. I’m aiming for at least 6 cups a day.

3) At least try and get more sleep: My schedule gets pretty hectic at times, and sleep becomes less of a priority during those days. However, it ends up catching up to me at the worst times, so I want to make an effort to at least get 8 hours of sleep a day.

So…there they are. The first one is pretty typical, I know, and I’m not exactly being creative. However, like I said before…small steps.

Anyways, I hope those of you with New Year’s resolutions are getting a good start on them!

Jonghyun’s “BASE”

As always, Jonghyun looks amazing…but this is even better because it’s a teaser for his upcoming solo album!

January 12th…the day I didn’t know I had been waiting for pretty much all my life as a SHAWOL.

That’s the day Jonghyun’s FINALLY making his solo debut. I am beyond excited about this and the teaser looks great.

One of the best possible ways K-Pop could’ve ushered in the new year of 2015…I’m excited for this year already!

Happy New Year!

It hasn’t even been a year since I started this blog, but I feel like I’ve gotten quite a lot done…and I got it up and running, which is pretty much all I wanted in the first place.

I want to thank every again for coming to read my posts, and everyone who will in the future.

I hope everyone has an amazing New Year and that this year will be even better than the last!

New Year’s Eve…

New-Years-Eve-Clock

The last day of 2014…and we’re only hours away from the very first of 2015.

This is pretty exciting…I wonder what the new year will hold for everyone.

I still haven’t made any resolutions for 2015…I have a few general ideas in mind, but nothing really specific. I guess I should probably start on that soon.

A lot of stuff has happened in 2014, and I’m a little sad that the year is over so quickly…but I’m also excited for the fresh start. I always have mixed feelings near the end of the year…

Anyways, I hope that 2015 will hold a lot of great things for you guys!
