Before I jump into goals and resolutions for 2012, I want to be tacky and give myself a little pat on the back for an awesome 2011. My list from last year was a mashup but I can’t help being a little proud of: running a 5k, developing a ridiculous skin care regiment for day and night, staying out of the sun and wearing sunscreen, using hair products to improve my lion mane of hair, trying and loving macaroons (!), buying that camera and lens I was pining for, being a bit more social, recycling everything, making travel plans even though they weren’t as exotic as I’d hoped for, keeping fresh flowers alive for longer than a day, and for making every day count. Gah, what a year.
This year, my mega huge #1 resolution is to hone my photography skills so I feel confident putting my badass camera to use. I’m one of those freaks that suffers from creative confidence – until I feel 100% good about the product I’m creating, I’m too shy to share it. You can imagine that the first several years of Interior Design school were more than a little painful. Step one in accomplishing this resolution is a photography course on January 14th. Eeeek I’m literally too excited for words!
Other resolutions are a few I didn’t quite accomplish last year plus other goodies: reading more, flossing, 401k (hopefully), making iTunes playlists, buying a vacuum, skyping with friends and family on the reg, finishing my bedroom makeover, waking up less early, wearing bold lip colors, taking more personal risks, and becoming more involved with charities and philanthropies. 2012 is going to rock – I just know it.
