2011 Resolutions

That saying sums up everything I hope for 2011 to be. I can't change a lot of things... but I can choose to my perspective on life and what my thoughts are :)

However, being the idealist that I am, I have thought about the past year and what I liked, what I didn't like and finally, what direction I want to go in as 2011 begins. To figure this out, I thought about where I want to be at the end of the year and worked my way backwards. SO...

The New Years Resolution List:

1. Take the 365 Challenge.
Basically, you take a photo of something every day and write about what it was you did. Kind of excited for this one!

2. Lose the last 10 pounds.
I've done a good job of NOT gaining weight at school, and I've started to lose weight again. So hopefully the momentum will keep on going. I have a plan, I have resources. I just need to make myself stick to it :D

3. Stay motivated in school--keep GPA above a 3.5
So confession time: I didn't do as good a job in school as I should have. I spread myself too thin in all aspects of life and didn't give my best like I did in the Spring. So, for 2011, (at least for Spring semester) I really want to focus on giving my 100% best to my studies. Hopefully the effort will show in my grades.

4. Manage money wisely!!!
Tithe regularly, save more than I spend, and stop BUYING food! :x

5. Have found and committed to a good church.
I've found one around school that I really enjoy but on Sunday morning I'm either sleeping in, coming home from a vacation/road trip or heading out on an all-day adventure. Still, that's no excuse and I really should start going to church on a regular basis...

6. Moved into an apartment.
Because living in the dorms simply isn't an option when you're 21. I have the roommates picked out, and a place. Now it's just a matter of actually accomplishing the move. Deadline for this one: August.

7. Keep friendships strong & try to be a good daughter.
I have been blessed with some amazing girls and guys in my life. These relationships have really made 2010 great and I want to make sure to keep in touch with them. Plus I have an even deeper appreciation and love for the fam bam and I want to serve them for once :)

8. Have PRSSA running bright and strong.
There are three officers right now and we're just getting our bearings. I want to make sure the Biola PRSSA chapter is in good hands when we leave!

9. Completed two internships.
Hopefully I can really do well at the Warner Bros. internship and that will lead to another one :)

10. Focus on 2 hobbies and grow in those skills.
I haven't decided what those two hobbies are yet but I really want to spend time doing things I enjoy and getting better at them. I still love to play piano and I also enjoy photography. So maybe it will be those. But who knows!

11. Expand musical tastes and library (find a new artist/read a new book each month).

12. Go to Las Vegas for the big 21.
Enough said.

13. Don't settle for anyone.
I'm tired of settling for nothing. I'm done with it all. I'm tired of keeping up appearances, knowing it means nothing, feeling nothing emotionally... what's the point? Sure a girl wants attention and a hand to hold, but those needs can wait until I find a guy I genuinely like, and who is willing to commit, someone who I am genuinely attracted to. I'm confident enough in myself to not need a one-night stand. I'm okay with being alone if it means waiting for the right guy to come along. But I don't want to have to go through meaningless faux relationships to get there.

14. Be able to run 3 miles non-stop.
I wimp out around 2 miles, but by next year I want running 3 miles to feel like it does running 1 mile: piece of cake.

15. Do something completely daring.
River rafting, free rock climbing, skydiving... something along those lines. I discovered I kind of enjoy being scared and then taking the plunge. So why not do something and live to tell about it, right? ;)

16. Travel.
Mission trips, study abroad, more conferences... I want to see what the world is like beyond small and materialistic Southern California. To that end I also want to write more.

17. Finish my Bucket List...

2011, I'm not sure what you have in store for me. It'll be a long time until I find out. But this is what I'm trying to do for myself and I hope you will be nice to me!


Closing Up 2010

The semester from hell is finally over and I am back in the South Bay for Christmas :)

I couldn't be happier to kiss Fall 2010 adieu, not because it was horrible but because it was just so damn busy. I'm no stranger to 18 units but for whatever reason, this semester's load was a LOT harder than the others. Welcome to the real world! But to balance out the stress of academia, Fall 2010 was also F U N. Many new friends, opportunities and good times were had and I can't say I regret any of them :)

I wish I could splatter this blog with pictures and quotes that sum up this semester but unfortunately, I'm not that creative and my mind is still recovering from finals. So, just the high points:

+Washington D.C. for PRSSA National Conference (and all the adventures that came with it)
+Big Bear with all the girls <3
+Seeing MUSE live :D
+My birthday
+Six Flags/Disneyland/Scary Farm
+Reindeer humping
+Having my best friend live down the hall from me
+Seeing Usher//Trey Songz thanks to the bestie
+Growing in faith and in my major

Add to that all the parties, late-night girl talks and 5am Dennys runs and I would say this semester was a success! Even though life was really stressful and sometimes I wasn't sure I could get it all done, I learned so much and God blessed me with many great memories :)

2010 as a whole was the year of change (*cough* cliche), and now I am at the end of it all. I've lost some weight, improved upon my wardrobe, expanded my tastes in music, ideas and the world in general, and have a better grip on what it means to be Me. I've also crossed off a few things on my bucket list (swam with dolphins/sea turtles, seeing Muse etc.)

So now we have arrived at 2011.

I'm a sucker for fresh starts and the prospect of adventure, so naturally I am all over the New Year idealism.

The best part of 2010, is knowing who I am again. The transition from teen to adult was a little strange and a bit rocky, but I've achieved balance. I know who I am, what I need to work on, and who I want to be. It all fits together, somehow.

2011 is a big year! I start my first internship EVER with Warner Bros. Music Group in Burbank, working 18 hours a week with Promotions. I'm scared of messing everything up but definitely exciting and embracing the opportunity with gusto.

In addition to that, I will be taking 14 units at Biola--the smallest amount of classes I have taken in two years. I will also be continuing my old job in hopes of making some bank aha.

So I'm thinking all of that will keep me pretty busy for at least the next three months. I'm definitely stoked to see what is around the corner. Only God knows. And since only He knows, I am once more putting complete trust in Him!

Oh and 2011 is a very important year because I'll officially be the big 2-1!!! Ohhh dang. Should be some good times for sure. Like the last three years of college, but better.

Who knows what is going to happen, whether it be good or bad, exciting or mellow, everything is supposed to happen for a reason. A few goals for the new year:

+Continuing dropping the pounds. I'm pretty in shape, thanks to all the time spent at the gym and the track but I want to keep getting stronger. I want to reach my goal weight and I am 7 pounds away from it! I need to keep going. Plus I want my flexibility back. Remember when I could do the splits? Yeah, its been awhile.

+Continue to live life in the moment. I've been soaking in every moment, enjoying life for what it is and honestly, its made the world seem so much brighter. It sounds stupid I know, but life has this new spark ever since I've stopped worrying about the future or wishing for the past.

+Stop being self-centered. It's hard to be a PR major (the career that is all about image) and not be caught up in self, but I want to continue placing God first and subsequently my family and friends. I want to focus on them and serving them, listening to God and trying to live a life He wants me to be.

Those are just a few of my goals for 2011. I know I should try to keep the list minimal and practical in order to succeed but the dreamer part of me insists on throwing a few more in there as well. I will most definitely be posting a 2011 New Years Resolution List soon...

Last few weeks of the year and things are going so fast! Ah!!!
