I hope that you all had a fun and safe New Year's Eve celebration last night. I know I did! But now, it is finally 2015, so let's get down to business. (points if you finished those lyrics and got that reference!)
2015 is going to be a big year for me. I'm going to hit a lot of milestones, and I'm also going to be celebrating some with the boyfriend, Darell, as well. There is a lot that I want to accomplish this year, and everything that I do this year will set the tone for next year (I also have some huge goals for 2016 as well. I know, I'm thinking waay ahead).
I know that everyone talks about resolutions for the new year, but I don't like using that word because I feel like there is a more likely chance not to accomplish your goal if you use that term. Because let's be real: how many people actually finish their New Year's Resolutions from the beginning of the year to the end?
Because of that, I refer to my "resolutions" as goals. Here are my goals for this year, not only for this blog, but my personal goals as well:
 Rebrand/redo the blog design (only tweaks, not a complete overhaul :)
 Get back into #ootd posts, at least biweekly
 Host at least one giveaway every quarter
 Have Instagram following hit 1K
 Have Twitter following hit 1K
 Attend at least two blogger events
 Develop at least 2 new blogger friendships
 Collaborate with more local brands and shops
 Launch my two projects I'm working on by June of this year :]
 Participate in at least one full-on photoshoot (with a hair stylist, makeup artist, a stylist, everything)
 Get published in a large publication (online or print)
 Host my first blogger event
 Go on a road trip with friends
 Get my own apartment!
 Learn to cook a Filipino dish that isn't lumpia
 Travel out of the country
 Find a job that will give me a stable income (or at least have my current job give me a more stable income)
 Turn 21 haaaay
 Have my first legal drink (after I graduate and am off contract from my school, of course #Vanguardproblems)
 Witness Darell graduate & receive his AA!
 Have a GPA of at least a 3.5 or higher for my last two semesters of college
 Go to Camp Whittle
 Go back to Royal Family Kids Camp
 Read at least 6 novels for pleasure (since 12 didn't work last year)
 Go on a date with Darell where we look like tourists/too rich for our own good haha
 GRADUATE COLLEGE
Okay, so one of the main things I'm excited for is graduating college. As of right now, I'm set to graduate this December, and even though that's not until the end of the year, it's a pretty great thing to look forward to. And I also want to take this blog to the next level too. I'll be going on 2 years with the blog this year, and I want to really propel it into what I envision it to becoming.
I'm declaring 2015 as the year of making things happen, and I hope that you will declare that for your life this year as well. Here's to a new year!
What are your goals for this year? What are you going to do differently?
