Happy New Year!
As far as how I ended out the year this is all you need to know:
Yes, I met THE Bawse herself. Finally. And I totally spazzed out, but she was super sweet. What a way to end the year. I feel pumped and ready to conquer life!
As many of you already know the New Year is my favorite holiday. Fresh starts, resolutions…I am so on board with those. So, I didn’t complete a lot of what was on my list for last year. However, I did complete a lot in general and that’s what’s important right? Here’s my list:
-Took a belly dancing class
-Took an astrology class
-Went to 3 concerts
-Met Mamrie Hart, Hannah Hart, and Lilly Singh
-Went to comedy shows
-Went to tapings of Not Too Deep
-Went to the Women’s March
-Went to Burning Man
-Met up with Emilie Autumn and Orphan Black fans
-Read 27 books
-Moved to LA
-Found an apartment
-Found a job
-Found a better job and one I’m passionate about
That’s pretty epic. I can’t believe I’ve been here a year already. Time flew by. My take on LA? It’s amazing! I never thought I’d love where I live so much. I always loved Seattle, but never actually felt like I lived there. I rarely left my apartment. Here in LA I’ve found myself to be more adventurous, daring, and willing to go out into the world and DO things.
So, looking forward. I was lacking a lot of motivation to make goals for myself this New Year’s Eve. I was feeling pretty lazy. My main goal for this year is to not focus so much on perfection. I always, like most everyone, get all geared up with my resolutions and it lasts a month or two. Then, I miss a day of working out and I feel like it’s all gone to shit. This year, I want to work on going easy on myself. I still have a lot of goals, but I’m going to approach them differently this year. You can check out my New Year’s Resolutions for 2019 here. You’ll notice that some of these resolutions have carried over, some of
them seem way out there, and some are silly. I like to make a ton of resolutions. It gives me something to focus on. When I feel a lack of motivation as the year goes by, I can always pick a different resolution to work on, never running out of ideas.
It’s become a bit of a tradition for me to hang out by myself on New Year’s Eve, make my resolutions, and watch Dirty 30. While I absolutely love the time I have to myself to reflect on the year and relax, my goal for next year is to have a lot of friends to celebrate with. I imagine myself on a rooftop in LA with a lot of people. I’ll work on manifesting this is 2019.
I wish everyone the best year! Keep an eye out here for some changes (yeah I’ve been saying that all year I know…but for real this time!)
