2017

I have never been a fan of New Year’s Eve, for the common reason: the pressure to have a good time. I used to firmly believe that how you spent NYE was how you spent the rest of the year. So last year I spent it with a great guy, andddddddd a year later, I am still single. The theory is now questionable. Anyway, what I decided this year was that as long as I personally was happy, it wouldn’t matter if the night was magical or not. When it came to planning, the main goal was just to get through the night, even if that meant staying home alone and watching a movie (which I have done before and have lived to tell the tale). Luckily for me, I have fun friends and we all decided to get tickets into one of our favorite out of town bars and a hotel down the street from it.

Going into the night, the girls and I were ready to meet new people and flirt our way through the night.

Going into the night, the girls and I were ready to meet new people and flirt our way through the night. What we walked into was a bar full of DUDS. Not one person outside my friend group seemed fun, interesting, or inviting. Normally when we go out, I see tons of people I want to talk to but this crowd simply sucked. With that, we stuck by our handsome guy friends and had as much fun as we could. At midnight I was with my favorite people, smiling and laughing. If 2017 brings more of that, I will be a happy camper.

Resolutions 

I can’t say I have ever really made a new year’s resolution. I always have goals and things I am working on, so a new year doesn’t really make a difference for me. However, as I head into 2017, I have a few things in mind.

  1. Spend money on experiences, not things.
    • Since getting my nannying job, I have been the most financially stable I have ever been. With that, I tend to buy myself whatever I want and even making a Christmas list was hard. I feel like I have all the stuff I need, and am ready to use it all.
  2. Take more pictures
    • This might seem silly, as it is the age of the endless pictures with instagram and snapchat. But I want to take pictures that aren’t necessarily ‘for the gram’ or ‘for the snap’, but genuine candid shots of my happy people, places, and things.
  3. Save money
    • Basic, I know, but now that I have all the things I need, it’s time I give myself the gift of stability and security in my bank account.
