I must say that it is SO true… every year flies by faster as you get older and I never wanted to believe it. But 2011 came and went in the blink of an eye. 2011 was a life changing year for me: new city, new apartment, new friends, new job and a new after-work activity: my blog!
Part of me is still thinking “Rachel, why didn’t you just wait until 2012 to officially start your blog?” A new start to a new year would have been a really motivating way to get going. But it is something I’ve wanted to do for over a year and I am so lucky to be blessed with an amazing boyfriend who devotes his time to helping me with everything on it from web design and customization to photos (and much much more)!
And I’m really glad I started when I did because I am already having so much fun with it! December was a great month to share my holiday cheer and work out some kinks from my very first post, and I am excited to continue learning and generating new ideas for my blog in 2012. With all of that said… if there is anything you would like to see that I don’t talk about or see more of, let me know! I am trying to blend the aspects of my life together in what I hope to be useful information on fashion, career and life in general (and in an affordable way of course). I am always up for suggestions and constructive criticism!
So what is your New Year resolution? I will probably stick with the usual ones (uhh hello gym I have missed you! and dear closet, I can’t wait until I can WALK through you again). But also have another few goals in mind:
1. I want to stick with this blog, no matter what, because at the end of the day it makes me happy. But I’m not going to lie, I’ve already realized that at the end of an 8-hour work day, sometimes I just want to sit back and relax. I was so involved in college with internships, the newspaper, research, friends, family and events, and had so much energy… so it is still hard for me to understand WHY I feel so tired sometimes after sitting at work all day but I guess that’s how it goes when you get older
2. I am starting a new project and I want to go for it… push outside of my comfort zone to do something I never thought I would be doing. If nothing else, I hope to learn new skills from working on it!
3. Snooze my alarm clock only three times… I am a SNOOZER, a horrible, horrible snoozer… not so much a morning person! I want to feel less rushed in the morning and have time to make a pot of coffee! Especially these days, I have even more I want to do in the mornings before leaving for work (Catch up on new blog posts, check Facebook and Twitter…etc.)
And with all of this said… I really just wanted to wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!! No matter how you are celebrating, I hope you have a wonderful night. Let’s see what 2012 has in store
