Keep it in perspective

Boy am I glad I happened to have my mom's laptop with me today at school, otherwise this would never make it on here.

So I'm walking into class and some girl I have never seen before looks at me and says, "Hey, I like your outfit!" Literally what my mind had been thinking about at that time was how bad I think I look in the jeans I'm wearing. It was nice to have a quick little reality check.

21 for 21

So as you may or not know, I turned 21 just a couple weeks ago. This year, instead of doing New Years resolutions, I'm doing 21 goals for my year of 21. And I'm making them realistic... Mostly.

1. Write in my journal 21 days a month.
2. Keep 21 things to myself I should keep to myself.
3. Work out 21 days each month.
4. Complete 21 projects before my year of 22 (many from my beloved Pinterest).
5. Lose 21 lbs.
6. Have 21 wall decor items adorn my walls. (I'm currently at 1.)
7. Take 21 pictures a month, whether Kevin likes it or not.
8. Eat 21 healthy meals a month.
9. Learn 21 easy, healthy recipes.
10. Try/learn 21 new things.
11. Do 21 things with Kevin I've never done with anyone else.
12. Post everything I successfully complete. (They don't all have to have "21" in them.)
13. Grow my hair out.
14. Get at least 8 hours of sleep each night.
15. Drink 8 glasses of water a day.
16. Stop biting my nails.

...I honestly thought coming up with 21 things would be a whole lot easier...

17. Train Roscoe to know 6 words.
18. Be content with where I am and not always wish for what's in the future.
19. Have my Etsy store be successful.
20. Be more free-spirited.
21. Work on learning either ASL, Spanish, or Mandarin.

I really will try to hold #12 and really post everything. I want to blog much more than I actually do.
