2014 resolutions

I've been hesitant about writing down my resolutions, or even making any considering I always forget about them. After giving it some thoughts though, I'm making them. It never hurts to have achievable goals, and though January is almost over, it's never too late for a new start.

So here they are, my resolutions for 2014:

  • Take full advantage of my honours year - I've been accepted into my first choice of university, whose Psychology department is supposedly the best in Australia. It should be fairly hectic, but also fairly awesome. I intend to do more than the minimal amount of work and take advantage of being around some of the best professors I could possibly have.
  • Exercise more - I should make use of the fact that there are 3 pilates centre and a gym near my apartment, plus the uni's sports centre. I've been saying for a year that I want to try Zumba. This will be the year I do; if it's not for me, I'll try something else. 
  • Have adventures - This could be something as standard as trying a new restaurant with friends on a Friday night rather than curling up with my laptop once in a while, or actually travel. I'm about to go back to Melbourne; there's more to see and do there than I've seen and done in the last four years.
  • Take care of and feel better about myself - Healthy food, healthier habits. Also, this may be the year this girl learns that dresses and make-up are not the enemy.
  • Find a job - I get so intimidated by the whole process of applying that I curl into a ball and just not try after a couple of attempts. This year, I'm going to be a little braver.

Fingers crossed I can stick to these!
