My 2017 New Year Resolutions

Happy New Year!

2016 was an eventful year for me. Throughout the year, I would recall things I had done and think did all that really happen this year? There seems to be a general consensus among the people of the interwebs that 2016 wasn’t the best year for the world, but it was personally a good year for me. I feel like I can proudly say I went through a lot of ✧character development✧ this year. 

My 2016 resolutions weren’t very specific (ex. read more, exercise more, be more positive), but I think I still accomplished them regardless of that fact. I’m keeping my resolutions very general again since it worked last year and it puts less pressure on me. In 2017, I want to:


  • Take more pictures. Last January, I started a photo diary. I wanted to chronicle my life someway, and photos seemed to be the easiest way.  Most of the pictures I took ended up being sunsets (see below). This year I want to make a conscious effort to take pictures of what I’m doing (instead of just the sky) because it’s nice being able to look back at the moment.
  • Talk to more people. I’d like to think that I’ve gotten better at conversing with people since I’ve started college, and it’s something I want to continue to improve on.
  • Push myself out of my comfort zone. I’m perfectly fine with staying alone in my room all day, but I miss out on a lot of social events because of this. I want to be more proactive this year in making plans with people and trying new things.


  • Read the books I mentioned in my post, 5 Books I Finally Want to Read in 2017.
  • Read more graphic novels. I read my first graphic novels last year, Nimona and Giant Days, and I really enjoyed them. Let me know of any good graphic novels so I can read them!
  • Read more horror books. I went through a horror phase years ago (I was an //edgy// sixth grader, if you really want to know), and it’s a genre that I’ve been meaning to explore more of. I’m open to book recommendations since all I know of the genre is R.L. Stine and Stephen King (fear street books were my shit).
  • Establish a post schedule for this blog. I’ve been posting sporadically ever since I started this blog at the end of November last year. I’ll feel more satisfied with this blog once I can regularly put out content.
  • Complete my Goodreads Reading Challenge of 50 books as well as the other challenges I’m participating in this year.


Thanks for reading and happy New Year again! Let me know some of your New Year’s resolutions or if any of yours are the same as mine. I hope 2017 is everything you want it to be.
