2015 New Year Resolution Recap

Thursday, January 7, 2016
I don't know how many of you remembered, but I made three New Year Resolutions in the beginning of 2015. Those resolutions were:
1. Read more books
I technically did this because I didn't read any books for leisure in 2014... I only finished one book which was The Beast Within, but I kind of cheated because I recently remembered about my resolutions and finished it last week...haha. I did already read more than half of the Chinese zodiac one when I got it because I wanted to know what the new year brings for me and others I know. I plan on rereading some of the sections and see how much of it came true. Let me know if you would like a post on that. Aside from books, I did feel like I read a lot more articles online this year, too.

2. Go on more adventures and explore!
Definitely! I did go out of town to a different place other than NYC and NOVA. I went to South Carolina for the Myrtle Beach trip, and North Carolina for the lantern festival. (It didn't hit me that I went to both of the Carolinas this year until this post!) I also tried out a good amount of new places to eat and shop. I tried out that new donut shop around the block that I mentioned earlier this year, and I went to events in my local area and to museums. I went to my first bar and went clubbing for the first time this year as well. I know, I'm such a late bloomer for these, but it's because the people that I hang out with finally turned 21 so we got to do more things like that.

3. Update this blog and youtube more frequently

I would say I updated my youtube more and updated the blog about the same as before. The main difference was BLOGMAS. I didn't participate in it because I just didn't have the time, but I really hope I'll be able to do it for 2016. Who knows, maybe I'll even do vlogmas? My goal for 2015 was to post a blog entry twice a week and upload a video twice a month. I did manage to do that in the first half of the year, but towards the end I was down to maybe one blog post a week and one video a month.

So did I fulfill my New year resolutions??
I would say for the most part - yes. I didn't do exactly what I had planned, but I would say it was good enough and I'm happy about that, especially because I started working more, too. I felt like my time management skill improved, and I hope that I'll continue to manage my time well because I just love blogging!

 What about you guys? How did your new year's resolution go? 
Do you plan on having some for this year?

I think I'm going to try to keep these same resolutions for 2016 and add three more.
1. Going to the gym at least once a week 
During the warmer seasons, I go at least twice a week, but when it starts to get cold, I slack off because all I want to do is stay home and cuddle up to watch Netflix. (I'm sure a lot of people are guilty of this lol).
2. Drink at least a bottle of water a day
I feel like I don't drink enough fluids throughout the day especially water. It's not that I don't like to drink water or other types of beverages, it's just that I forget? I'm more of a snacker than drinker, but I hope that drinking more water will keep me hydrated so I'll be able to have nice skin haha. I know it's quite a vain reason, but 2015 was the year my skin probably went through the most so I hope by committing to this habit, my skin will improve.
3. Clean/organize room every two weeks
Even though I consider myself an organized person, my room on the other hand is not...I mean, I know where most of my things are - in organized piles of messes, but they're still piles of mess. I work better in a clean organized environment so maybe trying to keep up with my room will make me more productive and procrastinate less.

These seem like simple resolutions, but I know it'll be difficult to maintain. Wish me luck!

2016, I'm ready for you!
