Healthy eating as a means of actual health, not weight loss, because for some reason, people tend to be skeptical that a woman could actually just want to treat her body right and not be perpetuall…
I need to remind myself.
It’s been a good year. Lots of traveling, lots of friends. It’s been a good year :)
As 2013 wraps up, Iâve been noticing more and more people getting engaged and/or married under the age of 23. I get it. Itâs cold outsideâ¦ you want to cuddle and talk about your feelingsâ¦ life afte…
I love love love love love this. So perfect. So wonderful. Not that i believe this applies to everyone who gets married under the age of 23…but this is the best.
to the future me as a reminder of the things I plan to accomplish in 2014:
1. To stop drinking so much diet coke. And coffee. (So far you’ve been doing very well with the coffee…diet coke, not so much. Remember: You do not want to be one of those crazy middle-aged diet coke obsessed women…like your 8th grade math teacher. scary stuff).
2. To talk to more strangers. Contrary to what your parents told you, and from what you have observed, talking to strangers is actually a good thing—can actually be a good thing. plus you have a nasty resting-bitch-face that is scary…i think.
3. Stick to your schedule. You make these really well thought out, well planned schedules, and always attempt to follow through, but then something will happen — like you’ll forget to bring a sweater and are slightly cold at the library—and you’ll end up completely giving up on it. stop that.
4. Work out. It’s not that you have a plan to “lose weight”, although that would be awesome, it’s more that you have a plan to “get in shape”. Like, it would be awesome if you could take the stairs from Marthas to MVR floor 2 without dying.
5. Stop lecturing. Every time someone, i.e. your mother/brother, asks you for advice or does something stupid, don’t lecture them. You’ll turn into your dad and become one of those people who go on crazy rants for hours without realizing that there is no one listening to them.
6. Stop hatin’ on your self. Yes, being self-aware is super important and crucial to improvement, but being so self-critical is not…and on that note, being so self-critical leads to being so critical of others…and it’s stressing you out. Relax.
7. Ponder more on what your blessings are and what you’re thankful for.
8. Help someone.
9. Call your grandma at least once every two weeks. she’s lonely.
10. Stop procrastinating.
11. Get a normal sleep schedule. i.e. go to bed at 12 and wake up at 7! (go to bed now!)
12. Keep in touch with your friends. You suck at it. Call a friend, any friend, at least once a week. Try skyping for once. Respond to texts and emails faster.
This is what I’ve been up to this summer.
