My partner tells me that it's bad luck to tell other people your New Year's resolutions. I think that's only the case with the wishes you make on birthday candles, though. If it is bad luck, I'm doomed.
1. Wear more skirts in the winter.
Ridiculous, you say? Petty? Sorry. Skirts make me happy, are way more flattering than pants for my body shape and allow me to stretch during the day without the constraint of something enveloping my legs. I hate clothes touching my body. Usually I just sacrifice comfort in the winter because it's cold, but this year I'm going to keep wearing skirts (with thick tights and boots) into the winter months. Plus, it's been really warm so far (40 degrees in January?!?!) so this sounds completely reasonable. Check back with me when it's -15.
2. Integrate more music into my life.
Perfect example: Right now I'm sitting in my living room, home alone, and it's silent except for the sounds of the keyboard and the dog licking herself. I would love to listen to some music, but I just don't think about it. When I DO listen to music, I feel really happy. So I'm going to find ways to listen to music more often this year. So far I've joined Spotify and a "music club" with friends where we make a mix CD every month and trade.
3. Continue being active for my mental health, rather than physical health.
4. Stick to my budget so that I can pay off my car and meet my "emergency fund" savings goals in 2012. [Look out, students loans. I'm coming for you in 2013]
That's it for now! I'm sure I'll think of some more along the way this year.
