Bring On 2017

Well, 2016 is over. Hallelujah. I had many high moments in 2016: I graduated college, bought a house, got a puppy, married my high school sweetheart, started law school and made some amazing new friends. However, 2016 was also pretty rough at times... I lost some friends, I dealt with some personal challenges, I lost a dog, was academically challenged more than I ever have been in my life and moved to a new city. After first-semester law school finals and a leaking toilet that flooded my house, I am ready for a new year.

I am looking forward to bigger and better things in 2017. I already changed my hair color (hello brunette) and purged my closet but I need more. I am ready for some personal changes. I have many resolutions but here I am just outlining my top 6.

1. Get Healthy
I have never been a good exercise-r nor strict about a healthy diet. I am notorious for going to the gym for a few weeks and falling off the wagon and reaching for donuts whenever I have the craving. This year, I am determined to break this bad habit. After spending a semester without sports, drinking my weight in coffee and sitting in front of casebooks 24/7, I weigh the most I ever have in my life and I am completely not okay with this. It is time to get it under control and get healthy. Smoothies, Yoga, vitamins and gym time is in my future!

2. Kick Law Schools Butt
I was not content with my first semester grades or GPA. I now know that I need to kick it into even higher gear to get on top of it. I knew the information but did not test well so I see lots of practice tests, hypos and multiple choice in my future.

4. Blog Twice a Week
I did not stay as current with blogging as I had hoped once Law School got busy. I am making a personal goal to blog twice a week and try to gain some income from this little blog of mine.

5. Update my Beauty Routine
I am almost 23 and I still have acne and terrible dry skin. It is time to get a grown-up skin routine and get this under control. I asked for Sephora gift cards Christmas so I can go get some "grown-up" products, throw away my drugstore products and make my skin healthier than it has ever been!

6. Put My Marriage First
I have been married for nearly 6 months and though we are doing great, I want to reaffirm and continue to put my marriage and my husband first. That is what is most important in life and I do not want to lose sight of that.

Who knows if I will stick to it but thats my goals and resolutions for 2017!
