13 in 2013!

To start the year off in a positive direction, I have compiled a list of 13 goals that I would like to accomplish in 2013! Here is a more detailed explanation of my list:
  1. Start a journal - this is something I've tried several times, but have always failed at doing. I have a journal inspiration post planned that I will share with you soon.
  2. Get back in shape - yes, I am skinny and no, I do not need to lose weight. With this being said, I miss feeling strong and in shape like I did when I was dancing 6 days a week back in high school.
  3. Eat less processed foods - I am already a vegan, but now I want to cut out processed foods laden with unhealthy chemicals and start eating more whole and organic foods.
  4. Read more for pleasure - I read for pleasure often during the summer, but I have a hard time doing it while I am in school; I usually spend too much time on my schoolwork and less time enjoying reading for myself.
  5. Take more outfit pics - This really needs no explanation: I just want more outfit pictures for my blog. The hardest part is always finding somewhere to take the pictures. This is what I need to figure out.
  6. Try out more hairstyles - Currently I have two ways of doing my hair: down and curly or up in a bun. I would love to try out different ways of styling my hair.
  7. Get another piercing - I already have my ears stretched to 1/2" and my cartilage pierced, but I want to get at least one more piercing this year (I have about 5 more piercings that I want, hehe).
  8. Start an online shop - I've always imagined selling vintage online, and I think that's something I would like to start up this year.
  9. Get my degree - this one will definitely happen: I am set to graduate in May, I just have one semester left!
  10. Clean my room at my parents' house - I want to go through and declutter my room at my parents' house, which has pretty much turned into my mom's office (I do not plan on moving back home after graduation, either).
  11. Be a better girlfriend - not only do I want to be more kind to my boyfriend, but also to my friends and family. Sometimes I feel like I am too selfish and do not take others into consideration enough, so I want to change this.
  12. Be more positive - I have a tendency to be negative in certain situations, so I want to be more positive when things go wrong instead of just getting upset.
  13. Be happier - this one is vague and similar to 12, but I want to be happier overall and smile more.

Do any of you have any goals for the new year?


  1. That's an interesting goal : starting an online shop. Even it's not on my goal list, it's secretely on my goal secret project lists. Hope you will have very luck :D And I understand what you meant by " reading for my schoolwork and less for my pleasure". I'm on my master degree and it's really difficult because you already got so much to read in school that when it comes to read something you choose you are already tired. But I found a why to minimize that : a I go by subway to my university I read there. :)

    Hope you had a good new year eve.


  2. I need to get back in shape too.

  3. Just as I believe in expressions of love on Valentine's day, I do believe in resolutions for the New Year. Your list of goals is a good one.

  5. Hi there! Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog, it was great to come across yours! I'm really impressed with how many goals you've set yourself; I hope you can keep them all up!

    Love, Lauren.


  6. Wish you the best for 2013! :*

  7. great goals, good luck with them and happy new year! I love journals but sometimes i'm way to lazy to write on them, still, i try to write when i have important things to share or when my mind is restless, so don't give up, even when you fail a few days :)

  8. oooh new years resolutions... i have yet to make mine haha :p
    yours sounds pretty good though.
    you could technically cross off your #1 and count your blog as your online journal. is that cheating? :) haha

    anyway, i love reading your blog so i'm following you <3


  9. This is a great list, love read more and online shop sounds exciting.

    this year i didn't make any specific plans because, everytime i put some "new years resolutions" i never complete them and if you read my last post, you're gonna see why I think that. However, I will be making something productive this year :)
    Happy New Year, I hope you had an amazing time celebrating it!

  16. Really enjoyed reading this! I love having a nose at peoples resolutions :D I think I need to join you with eating less processed foods, its quite gross what junk food can do to you really!

    Happy new year!


  17. Nice list, I could write down most of the things you put down :)
    Happy New Year!

  18. Everyone is making new year resolutions now! I hope 2013 goes well for you! I really like your blog! I'm glad that I found it! It would be nice if you could stop by my blog sometime too (I'm from England) as I post my outfits, personal style, likes and much more :) :)


  19. Happy New year may the year bring you all that is wonderful

  20. Great goals. I hope you're able to achieve each and every one of them.

    Good luck in 2013.

    I think I'd like to start journaling again this year, as well. I found this really cool online journal called 750words.com that I think I'll try. You should give it a look. It's a great idea.


  21. Happy New Year!! Well you seem to be on the right track with everything! Future congrats for your graduation in May!! I hear ya on the processed foods...I want to try and not eat anything that has a numbered ingredient or a -xide at the end...does that sound silly?!? I'm not sure. Best wishes!

    Your very motivating, I'm going to follow you on Bloglovin! Have a great year and a awesome night!


  22. Really nice goals! I think that some of them (like the 2nd, 3rd and 6th ones) should work for me too! hehe! Happy New Year, hope you have a great 2013! xx www.alittlerockalittleroll.com

  30. Reading this I have to say it again: Happy New Year to you!
    I love your 13 resolutions,wow!Those are a lot and they are all good!I`m looking forward to your starting a journal thing,I tried writing a journal several times,but I always failed,as i rather stick to the computer and like to write down my things there!
    I especially love number 3!I think this is a really good thing to do!With this resolutions your not only going to be healthier,but also you`re going to support little local stores,who are more reliant to customars than big supermarkets!Anyway,what I want to say,I love your idea,but this is going to be difficult,because you have to avoid all supermarkets!!I hope you`re gonna tell us about your experiences!
    And hey we also have two matching resolutions,number 4 and number 8!I have 2 book projects going on.My own,which you can find here: http://abirdsdailylifetale.blogspot.ch/2013/01/2013-resolutions.html
    and this book club with other bloggers:
    So feel free and join one or both of them,or just get inspired!
    And about your number 8,I have some similiar dreams and ideas,so when you`re still looking for a partner in crime or just some exchange of ideas,write me an email at birdlovesfashion@gmail.com.

  37. Great goals for the New Year but don't overwhelm yourself <3
    btw thanx for your comment & visit to my blog.


  38. I love your goals!
    For one thing they are realistic!
    And secondly they remind me a lot of myself.
    Not all of them but a lot to most of them.
    My favorite one is #12. I've been on a "positivity kick" for a few weeks now and I want to keep it up.
    Just remember and keep reminding yourself that,
    There is always a positive in a negative!

    Have fun, good luck and Happy New Year!
