1.) Post once a week (and proof read!)
2.) Get Healthy! - I know most people probably have a lot of "lose weight" on their resolution. I've always had that on my resolutions and it never goes well. This year I'm going to try just being healthier and losing weight should just come with it. That means I will really try to incorporate healthier foods into my diet and also try to exercise more. Once I get into the swing of things with this "Get Healthier" lifestyle, I'll be sure to post on this blog!
3.) Run once a week - this goes with my goal above. I make it a resolution to run once a week, because I don't want this list to be impossible. I definitely will try to run more than once a week, but I always tend to lost the rhythm of things if I set my goals to high. So it's best to set it low and aim high. If I'm having a lazy week, running at least once that week is better than not running at all :)
4.) No Soda. Yep. No soda. Shocking? I find myself more of a food than drink person. I'd rather eat my calories than drink them. I was never a big soda person to begin with, but I would drink if it was in the house or if was out eating. Now, I've decided to cut soda out, because honestly there's nothing in soda that's good for you and it's best to cut it out.
5.) Be confident. I have a very low self esteem and I'd really like to have more confidence. I always picture everything I do is not good, and anybody who does it is probably better than me. So I'd really like to be more confident this year!
6.) Take pictures!! It's my senior year and I really can't fathom leaving my friends that I've known since kindergarten. I can't imagine not seeing them on a daily basis, and only being able to see them a few times a year after that! I'm going to a mess at graduation. So, to keep my memories alive, I want to take as much pictures as I can with my friends, and document the rest of the 6 months I have with them!

4. If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, who would it be?
hmm... maybe Ann Shoket who is editor-in-chief of Seventeen magazine? I'd really like to meet her or maybe Bobbi Brown. They're both so inspirational. But then again I think I'd be in such a shock that I probably wouldn't be able to say anything haha.

Definitely concealer or blotting papers. I get so oily it's not even funny.
