New Year New Me

 

I've decided I'm going to make some changes in my life. I won't make ridiculous promises to myself, but I want to grow as a person this year, and be a better version of me. One of the things I want to work on is doing the splits, that's something my mom was interested in doing because a gymnast friend of hers told her it would probably only take about two months of daily stretching, and since I stopped going to yoga, I thought this might be a good way to get some of that stretching back into my life. Work on my posture too. 

I want to incorporate some new things too. Like walk around my neighborhood more, and go take a little bit more time to visit some of the stores around my house. Get exercise in creative ways. 

I'm going to take charge of my life and take the LSAT. I want to really go for it this time. 

I want to do something more creative. I want to make sure I draw more, and I want to make a zine and keep working on this website. Write more short stories. Flex that creativity muscle. 

I want to take more photos, and go out and do things that aren't going to music parties, and take more photos there. I want to explore the city in a new way. Try more restaurants and go to more comedy shows, maybe check out a jazz club. I have a feeling I'll want to have a chance to laugh a little bit more. Kinda over being at music events with DJs just cuz its the weekend. Make music an experience again, not a routine. 

I wanna shed everything I don't need physically and emotionally. That means saying bye to friends who don't treat me as well as I treat them, getting rid of the clothes I don't wear, and letting go of anything I don't need in my life anymore. 

Be more honest and be more spontaneous. If there's a karaoke session, I want to be comfortable with my shitty singing. If there's something I want to say, then I want to be okay with saying it. I don't want to be afraid of the center of attention anymore or causing discomfort. Not that I want to be rude, but I want to be okay with asserting myself in those moments when I don't. If I want my way, I want to speak out more. 

Make time for the people I care about. No more month-long gaps between seeing Justine or Isabel or Rasheed is allowed. 

Save more money. Experiences > Materials. Still look fuckin fly thoooo.

Travel more. Going to ATL for the first time, and making it a point to see the East Coast. Got Japan already in the works with Eze. 

Start DJ-ing again. 

Continue to be happy for everyone and their successes, no matter how small or big it might be. Their success is your success. 

Cook more proper meals. 

Fight for my rights and work hard for my goals.
