NYRP,[New Year's Resolution person] so I am all for setting objectives that I can attain.
get a job.
I hope this falls under the umbrella as attainable, because I don't know how much longer I can sit in my PJs all day drinking coffee. Understandably, its only been a few days of inactivity, but I feel like I'm slowly morphing into a Ricki Lake demographic. For Christmas, my mother stocked me up on stretchy pants to fit this new lifestyle of sitting on my ass, [Tangent: In a more figurative sense....because we all know I sit on my ass 24/7 in a literal sense.] but I already miss all my cute business casual looks. Rest in peace, tie neck blouses...rest in piece.
Recently, I have found myself peppering my coversation with terms like "jelly" and "cray cray." Who has inhabited my body? Despite the fact that I admire her smokey eye makeup for everyday grocery shopping, I am not Khloe Kardashian...I am 30 so need to stop using these terms. Not saying I am better than talking like a Teen Vogue article, because let's face it- I use the term Biffle and Selfie quite liberally, and I threw in "hella" in my opening paragraph. Obviously, selectiveness is key when trying to sound like a marketable adult. Also, I sound so square trying to say these things, that I am doing them a disservice. Here's to not sounding like an idiot in 2013. [Tangent: Ugh. This one will be hard.]
be fiscally responsible.
I've never been one to worship at the temple of Dave Ramsey or anything, but I have always been a penny pincher and not one to spend ridiculously so this is doable, right? The hard part will be cutting down on existing bills and monthly expenditures. Although I paid off my car in 2012, I have a large stack of medical bills to tend to. I'm also pretty much a moron when it comes to my credit rating, so even though I think mine is decent- I feel like I could probably do better.
take a trip or two.
This one is kind of a cheat because I have one to Chicago lined up in late January, but I really wanna be more adventurous and go places. I have friends that live in DC and my brother lives outside of LA, and at the present moment I have no excuse because vacation time is a non issue. [Tangent: But I think I am gonna embrace the MegaBus this year...so I will make that a subgoal!]. Losing daddy and learning yesterday of another friend's death makes me feel like I need to stop putting these things off and gives me a much needed kick in the crotch. I need to Carpe the living snot out of the diem.
