    For the new year I would like to explore more hobbies and mark activities off my bucket list. For example trying to learn a song or two on the guitar or going on a small road trip with just me and my dog! 🙂

    For the new year I want to create a new me. By this I mean get my braces off, lose weight, grow out my hair and nails more, explore different styles and cultivate my creativity and hobbies. I basically want to explore different sides of myself that I don´t normally get into as much. And I know this sounds like a ton of cheesiness but it´s true.

    For the new year, I would like to get into the habit of getting my schoolwork done as soon as possible, rather than leaving it for later. I tend to feel that I have so much homework at night, but I know that if I just sit down and do it, I can have it done a lot quicker. I have also being exercising a lot lately, and I would like to continue doing that so I can keep myself healthy and in shape during 2021.

    What I would like to begin doing this new year is really just focusing on myself and my mentality. Especially in these times we should take time for ourselves so by doing this for myself, I will continue to do my schooling to the best of my ability by staying focused and organized. While still giving myself time to relax and make sure I am happy throughout.
