Happy New Years' Eve! / 2011 in Review


Happy New Years' Eve, everyone! I hope you have big plans for tonight, but please remember to stay safe!

It seems like 2011 was the year that simultaneously dragged and flew by. I know, it doesn't make sense, does it?! There were a lot of changes in my life this year. Some good, some bad, but overall it's been a successful year.

Here are my 2011 Resolutions, as I wrote them back on January 1st. I'll post my commentary of how well I did in hot pink below each one.

1. DRINK MORE WATER.
I'm not so concerned with the whole "8 glasses a day" business. However, considering that I don't drink any water now, I think my body would appreciate the switch from the massive amounts of caffeine I currently consume.
I failed at this SO incredibly miserably. But.. it's never too late to try again! Supposedly it only takes 30 days to create or break a habit.. so wish me luck!

2. SPEND MORE TIME PURSUING MY OWN ENDEAVORS.
I've spent the last 3 and a half years killing myself with 2-4 jobs and 18 hours at school on top of dance company. It's been a pretty tough road and I've lost a lot of my interests and self-expression along the way. I used to love reading. And painting. And going out. And just being able to do whatever I want to do in my spare time. Wait. Spare time?! What is that?! ...That's exactly what I aim to find out.
Success! I've rediscovered my love of nail art and fell in love with the blogosphere! I also realized how much I love computer games as well. Puzzle, time management and hidden object games rock!

3. START MY OWN YOUTUBE CHANNEL.
I have been talking about this for MONTHS. I want to have a guru channel (beauty, etc) but I also want to have a vlog channel too. Maybe I'll start TWO channels!
Half success? I started both channels, but haven't made a video since September. Oops. :\

4. MAKE EFFING BANK.
I've graduated. I'm competent. I deserve it.
Okayyyy, so I'm actually making the least amount of money I've made since like... 2007. But I love my job and it makes me SO happy.. So even though it's not in my degree field, it IS in beauty and I'm going to count this as a win. If I stay and move up in the company, "bank" will come. :)

I'm not quite sure what Chris and I are doing to celebrate tonight. We don't have big plans.. we're just glad to be with each other. He's had to work on 4 of the 7 New Years' Eves that we've been together, so I was really excited when he said he had this one off!

Tomorrow I'll share my 2012 Resolutions with you!
