2013 To Do…
2013 sounds so futuristic. Like there should be flying cars and we should be teleporting to work everyday (as opposed to sitting on a train that has been stopped for the past half hour due to “really cold temperatures.” — um, hello! this is Chicago. It’s always cold.). But seriously, doesn’t it seem like we should all be wearing plastic jumpsuits? Well, I’m glad that we’re in the middle of a leather trend instead.
Whether it feels like it or not, it is officially 2013, which means that it’s time for another reflection on accomplishments as well as shortcomings. I’m not one to really make resolutions — they never seem to go anywhere. I do, however, love me a good to do list. So, I decided to put together my 2013 to do list — more manageable than resolutions, but still a few things I hope to improve.
ONE Blog More.
I have been so distracted this past year that I’ve let my side projects, my passions fall by the wayside. And more than that, I haven’t been inspired in forever! 2013 will be a better year for the Design Me Daily Blog. Promise.
TWO Say Yes.
Lately, I’ve found that I say no. A lot. I pass on too much that it seems like I really don’t do much at all. In 2013 I will say yes more often. Even to my husband ;)
THREE Drink Water.
I am weird when it comes to my drinking habits. I’m hardly ever thirsty, which makes it difficult to get enough H2O. So this year, I’m forcing myself to drink more even if it kills me.
FOUR Enjoy Chicago.
It’s strange that I’ve lived in the Chicagoland area for most of my life (and the Midwest for all of it, so far) and I haven’t even begun to explore the city. This year, we will make the most of it, while we’re still here…
I’m always explaining to people how hard I feel staying in touch is, but if you really think about it, it’s not hard at all. More phone calls, emails, texts and dinner dates.
