Ahh, a new year. A new me. A fresh start. Not sure if it’ll be true, but it’s kind of nice to think so.
When I was younger, I would make really long lists of resolutions that I would never follow through on (Yes, I’m 32 years old and still bite my nails. And, yes, I know it’s gross.). But the optimism is contagious during this time of year, so I’m going to roll with it and make a few more resolutions this year.
1. Put my phone down more.
It’s been brought to my attention that I spend too much time on my phone (checking my Instagram and Facebook feeds, playing games, reading People.com, etc.) when I could be a lot more productive and present. I promise my husband, family, and friends that I will do this (unless doing Second City Gal assignments, of course!).
2. Learn more.
Nate and I have gotten into watching Jeopardy lately, and I love the trivia. I want to learn more: listen to more podcasts, read more books (yes, I’m a writer/editor who doesn’t read nearly as much as I should), watch more, and do more.
3. Take more video.
I’m going to challenge myself with taking one second of video every day this year. A friend of mine has been doing this for awhile, and I think it’s a really cool project that will be so meaningful in 365 days. Can’t wait to share the final product with you!
4. Share my Second City Gal experiences more.
I seriously neglected this blog last year, and I sincerely apologize. Sometimes life gets in the way, and life was tough last year. But I went to amazing places like tea at the Langham, a walking tour of Frank Lloyd Wright’s home and studio, and ate at my cool places…and I haven’t told you about them yet. I’m going to start more #tbt and #fbf posts to share those experiences with you. I want you to get as much out of this blog as I do, so please let me know of cool things going on! I’ve updated my to-do list here.
Well, I’m excited to continue this journey with you. I also really need to pack for my next great adventure–I’m leaving for Nice and Barcelona on Saturday for work! I couldn’t be more appreciative for the opportunity and promise to share some photos of my favorite things when I return.
Au revoir and adios!
