Almost everyone starts making resolutions in the last few weeks of December, but they don’t follow through. I am no exception. I break during the first week of January, and thus, with time, they become a distant memory. Then, on the eve of the new-year, I remember them once again, realizing that I have failed. It’s a sad reality, a reality I want to avoid this year, I want to be better and motivate myself to do better. This time I intend to follow through. Wish me luck! 

1.      Sticking to my resolutions
      I have a lot of resolutions and obviously to follow through I need to stick to them! I intend motivate myself to work harder and achieve all (and then some more). No pain, no gain. I will stick to all my resolutions, no matter how much of a pain in the arse they might be; I will follow through!

2.      Not ignoring my blog
Honestly speaking, I'm a big quitter. When things get hard, I quit. I think that's one of the defense mechanisms my ego uses (I'm a Psychology student. I know what I am talking about. Okay? okay.) I will continue posting in my blog. I love writing, but have been out of practice for a longer time than I care to admit. I want to write well and better, and what’s a greater platform than the internet itself?

3.      Reading new books
      Reading is one of my hobbies and I love to read novels, but, unfortunately I spend too much time on the Internet wasting my time on God knows what (*cough* YouTube*cough*) than on the novels. I want to increase my knowledge and vocabulary and, thus write better. Who knows, I may also add book reviews to my blog!

4.      Drinking 3 liters of water a day
As you know, I am all for drinking water. It has many health benefits and also, it has miraculous powers of making your skin clearer and softer (not to mention the wight loss). Water is a solution to everything! I do drink that much water a day, but once I fall off the wagon, I don’t come around for weeks . I aim to avoid that and keep calm and hydrate (see what I did there!?). 

5.      Eating well
I love junk food. I could eat it all day all year long! But I do realize that it's not good for my body and yet I still find myself stuffing my face with chips, soda and what-not! I intend to avoid fried, unhealthy fatty food and eat 5 (no, that's not a typo, yes FIVE! including snacks, obviously)  healthy and nutritious meals a day. I don’t want to pump my body with salts and sugar. I want to stay healthy, be active and live well. (Terms and conditions apply

6.      Working out
I am a big procrastinator. I randomly some times realize I am gaining weight, I swear I would start working out next week and then I just stuff my face with more junk and call it a day and they cycle repeats a few months later. I want to build my stamina up and get about 1-1.5 hours of physical activity for 5 days a week to finally feel better about myself and my body!

7.      Giving up caffeine
This is a toughie. A few months ago, one of my friends pointed out that I am actually addicted to caffeine. Okay, yes, I know I won’t be able to cut it out completely at first, but I want to gradually give it up and substitute it with something better. 

8.      Getting better at my hobbies
I have a lot of hobbies, a lot of them, but sadly, I don’t really pursue them these days and end up regretting it and feeling "off".  I spend way too much time wasting my life in front of the TV or the computer. I must stop that and invest my time in things that I love!

9.      Hitting the books
I feel that I can achieve a lot academically if I hit the books everyday. Psychological fact: Revising something within 8 hours of first learning it in class gets stored in your memory for a long time. (a.k.a. better scores on test!). 


10.  Making new friends
I consider myself an introvert (Well, according to Eysenck's Personality Questionnaire, I'm an ambivert). I don’t feel comfortable when I am in large social groups. I need to be more social and get out of my comfort zone and be more outdoorsy. 

11.  Being a good person
I want to be a better person than I am today, give back to the universe.


12.  Learning girly stuff
I need to learn how to put make up on and learn about latest fashion trends, perhaps subscribing to a fashion magazine? Oh God! I am 18! I should be some kind of expert in painting my face make-up by now! 

I am positive that I will follow through. I'll keep you updated every month!

  50. I love all of your resolutions. In order to drink more water, I suggest getting a liter waterbottle, and setting goals for yourself. For example, tell yourself to drink one liter before lunch, then one before 3:00, then one before dinner. It keeps me motivated - and I get the goal accomplished!

    As for reading more books, check out my blog - I have reviewed some great books throughout my blog!

    I found this amazingly useful for me. Especially, I would love to adopt 3, 6 and 8 for me.

    Wish me good luck :)
