Today marks the completion of the second year. I can't believe I have been blogging for two years now. I know I've been spotty with the "weekly" blog posts, and I will not excuse myself for it. I've been looking around for some more topics to write about because honestly it's quite difficult to blog when you don't have time. I've been trying out a new sleeping schedule to see if I would be more productive. To see that I have started this blog post is definitely a start. I have recently watched a Buzzfeed video on having a morning and night routine of a CEO and it got me to thinking. Maybe I'll be less tired in the morning if I just went to bed earlier. So I did. Since Christmas (which has only been a few days ago, I know), I have been trying out the CEO morning and night routines. I have been messing up with taking a bath and other stuff, but I will say it's actually really interesting. But that's besides the point. If you want to hear more about my opinion on the CEO morning and night routine, give this post a thumbs up. Anyway, going back to the main topic.
Thank you so much for reading my posts for the past two years. I really appreciate it. I really enjoy the positive feedback from readers. Thank you and I will be continuing to post. I will try to have a post up every week. Anyway, thank you again, I hope you all spent some time with your family and friends this past holiday season and Happy New Year!! 2018 is coming up and I'm excited.
As the year comes to an end once again, we start reflecting on the year. What have we done, what have we achieved, and how can we improve. Then comes in the idea of New Year's resolutions. The goals we set ourselves up for, but (for many) never accomplish due to the lack of commitment we have for those goals or simply because you forgot or can't possibly change your entire life around to meet those high standards.
Going to the doctor's office recently for a yearly check-up has made me realize how much I give up to do well in school. My doctor was talking to me about getting at least 7 hours of sleep when I normally get 5. Or exercising at least three times a week when I would be sitting behind a desk or computer screen watching movies and shows on Netflix. And meditating for just five minutes to relieve all the stress from the day when I would just go to bed because I'm tired and stressed. Every day, I forget to do those things and it has been slowly affecting my health. With that in mind, here are a few resolutions that will be effective and not that big of a change in your daily lifestyle.
One year ago, I started this blog. I can not believe it. I have tried before to make a website and failed to keep it going. It would not have been possible for me to begin to think about starting a blog until I learn how to make a website during the summer a few years ago. Since then, I have been working toward sharing my adventures and soon my thoughts on whatever I encounter in the future. Thank you to everyone who has read my posts. I gives me a reason to post more.
Throughout this year, I think I have grown a bit as a blogger and next year is going to be better. I plan to blog more throughout the year and grow as a person. Thank you all for a wonderful year. Even though we know that Trump is president, let's try to make 2017 a greater year. Cheers to 2017!!! Let's make it a good year.
And like every person in the world, here are my New Year's resolutions:
Life is the long game.
This is from the episode The Long Game. So, as the clock counts down, I want you to remember 2017 is going to be a better year.
Well, winter break is coming to an end so I am going to recap on everything I have done in the two weeks away from the hell we call school. Last Monday, I went to Universal Studios for Grinch-mas, and it was like a last visit to Hollywood for this year. My family went to watch the same shows and we rode the same rides for one last time this year. Then every day after, my sister and I have gone to my academy for 3 hours to just read, do some writing, and take time away from our electronic devices, except for Christmas and New Years.
After 12, my mom would pick us up and we would have the rest of the day to do whatever we wanted like go shopping, clean up the house a little, relaxing, or go to the park. On Christmas, it was my sister's birthday so we have a party to celebrate. After the party, my older cousin, Jessica, stayed at our house and we had a sleepover. Instead of sleeping in our rooms, we all slept in the living room on the couchs. It was so fun and on New Years Eve, we will have another sleepover with our two younger cousins and grandparents as well. This has been the best winter break I've ever had with my family.
