Life is all about making memories. To learn from them, to use them in life, and to share them. Life should remain a healthy balance of looking back and moving forwards.
2015 was another great year in my life. It marked my fourteenth birthday, my first year of high school, and chance to discover new things.
With a new year, change is always present. Transitioning from the past year to the new one brings about a sense of nostalgia and, also, a time to set new goals to look forward to.
So I devised a foolproof plan to make sure I do the things I love and also incorporate it with things I find more difficult, in order to have balance.
Meet JANUARY, my helpful acronym for the month:
Yes, I am a Christian, and it’s okay if you aren’t. You’re still welcome on my page anytime. I am making a choice to commit more to God and his decisions for my life. I feel as if the concept matters more to me now than it did when I was younger. Now I am actually able to accept Christianity for myself, and not just the religion my parents follow.
Ah, school. Especially high school. The constant torture of *shudder* learning. I honestly wouldn’t mind so much, if I was actually learning helpful life values instead of trying to comprehend why or how an acute angle is going to help me establish a source of income. However, and rather ironically, I have a lot to thank school for. Because of school, I am actually somewhat social and have the chance to see my friends on a weekly basis. I also have the chance to improve in my writing skills, which I have no problem learning about at all. As you can see, I am quite biased. Math is just an uphill battle for me, folks.
Oh my gosh it’s a tree. I haven’t been outside this year as much as I want to, but I am going to change that! As I re-read this, I thought I said I haven’t been outside at all this year… awkward. *Awkwardly shuffles away* *returns sheepishly.* I remembered I haven’t finished quite yet.
Gotcha! Actually, it is my dream to have a unicorn. But mom and dad, a horse can suffice for now 😉 And this gif is my all time favorite thing ever.
I have an unhealthy obsession with the fine arts (art, dance, drama, music), but I haven’t been doing it as much as I’d like to. I am participating in my school’s musical, so a lot of singing, and I am also going to be dancing more frequently. As for the art, I think my absentminded doodling during class will be enough.
Books books books books books! Books are the best. Don’t even try to convince me otherwise. And if you’re anti-books, please, don’t let me know it. For your sake. If you simply have an issue with reading, who says you have to? You can always just listen. Even I have been getting into audio books (shocker), which happen to be one of the best things after hardback books. But I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to go just audio. Handheld books are just so lovely. ❤
You only live once! The funniest part is that you thought I was above this 🙂
Don’t worry, I am. I actually am planning on some relaxing Yoga sessions — you know, getting in touch with my inner zen. It seems to de-stress me in a fun way and I can also gain some flexibility! Now I call that a win win.
So, that’s my crazy to-do list! Look out for FEBRUARY which will be coming soon. Do you have any to do lists? Or a fun way of keeping up to date with them? Personally I am such a non-committed person when it comes to a schedule, I’m trying to fix that. Anyways, thank you so much for reading, and have a great day!
