New Year’s Resolutions I Actually Want to Keep [The Weekly 10]

I’m just going to say it. No matter how many times I vow to exercise and eat healthy on January 1st, I know in the back of my head that it is NEVER going to happen. I guess for me, it always seems so daunting. Eating salad for the next 365 days is a hard thing to commit to on New Year’s. So, I’m done making resolutions I know won’t work out.

This year, I have 10 resolutions that I actually want to keep (and I feel like I’ll be able to). I don’t think any of us are 100% satisfied with our lives right now, so making a few small changes might not be so bad for me.

Also, putting these on College Candy and letting a bunch of people read them kind of makes me want to keep them even more.

    I have some of the same resolutions. I sometimes flake to stay home too I used to think I was weird but then I realized it really isn't my thing going out to parties all the time. I consider myself an introvert.

    These are all excellent resolutions! Last semester I felt quite a bit like a flake too, but after going out to my first party last semester, I decided that that lifestyle just isn't me, and I need to surround myself with better friends who don't get completely wasted (I'm not against drinking, but a good 1/3 of the people at this party were throwing up. Not a fan). And similar to your write more resolution, I've made a resolution to draw/paint more: I want to be an art teacher someday, but my art classes require a lot of actual artwork. How am I supposed to improve if I only draw when inspiration hits? I need to start searching for inspiration, or even just doodle while I watch Netflix or something.

    I know this is kind of dumb but does anybody know what's the name of the show shown on resolution 2?
