Happy New Year, you guys! You know what is harder than writing a blog post regularly? Writing it after a short break, which included a celebration, a hangover and holiday movie marathon. I am having a hard time to sit down, open the dashboard and start typing on a blank space, which is why this wish is almost two days late. Sorry for that, once again, Merry 2015!
Now, laid it out to me, what are your new year resolutions? Before 2014, I used to have a lot of it each year, so much so that if I had followed it, I would be Beyonce, minus the elevator incident, because I wouldn’t have a sister to kick my man. Unfortunately, even with no Solange in the Geek’s household, I never followed through on my resolutions, not even until the end of January. And, that would be my reply to the age-old statement of having the same number of hours with Beyonce.
Last year, I changed my approach; I chose only one fun resolution, to wear more lipstick. And I did it, with many instagram pictures of my lips in 2014 as a proof. There was only a problem with this resolution, it didn’t give a lasting positive result. At the end of the year, I was left with six half used lipsticks, two of them were in the same colors, without lingering happiness as a byproduct.
This year, after reading one of the blog that gave an advice to stick with only one to three resolutions each year, I came with three goals instead. To WRITE. To write more, everyday, in many forms. To LEARN. To educate myself with something interesting and fun, maybe pick [dt_divider style=”thin” /]up a language or coding. To MOVE. I moved back to my parents’ for a reason, to migrate to a new country, which need to happen this year before they kick me out disgracefully.
The thing is, other than these three goals, I also have to come up with a new hobby. As I need it for a show and tell about it in April for the Glitter Geek Project with the BFF. I have been thinking what can my new productive hobby be? Something that I will be proud to show off in three months from now. I collect stamps, but it will portray me as a 70 year old man trapped in a hot body and is a rather passive hobby. I do watch a lot of SCANDAL, I can recite the sexy phone calls between the president and Liv, word by word. Is it something I am proud of? Maybe. Is it something my BFF can stomach? I don’t think so.
I need ideas for a hobby, you guys. Something simple, easy enough to multitask between watching TV and doing it; not time consuming and doesn’t require me to go out, because I already have an outdoor hobby, it’s called girls’ night out.
Have you ever considered taking a new hobby, instead of a habit, on a new year? If yes, what’s it? If not, would you? Because it might be fun!
