12 in 2012 - new year's resolutions

  1. Find a new home. A new apartment, a new house, maybe a new city… No one is keeping me here but myself.
  2. Pay off my credit cards. I just paid off my car, but my credit card debt is seriously cramping my style.
  3. Find a new job. It’s been over four years since I took this internship as a “stepping stone” towards my dream job. Two promotions and seven interns later, I know I’ve reached my full potential here and exhausted my stay.
  4. Learn how to cook. According to Skokie, it looks like I’m getting better at not burning things, so I must be halfway there! I’ve pinned a ton of recipes to try here.
  5. Conquer the elusive French macaron. I’m going to bake a perfect salted caramel macaron, and it will be glorious.
  6. Try new things. The same old is getting old. I can’t remember the last time I did something for the first time.
  7. Travel more. Go somewhere I’ve never been before for more than just a weekend.
  8. Appreciate what I have. I’ll try not to lose any sleep over the nine couples I know getting married this year. Yes, I said nine.
  9. Procrastinate less. If being stuck with no gas at Anthony’s during The Great Blackout of 2011 taught me anything, it’s that Anthony uses Aveeno Skin Brightening Daily Scrub. And that I shouldn’t wait until my gas light is on for two days before filling up.
  10. Take better care of myself. Eat better, exercise more, get regular checkups. Losing my aunt to lung cancer last year coupled with my mom’s painful battle with pancreatitis def put my health in perspective.
  11. Be more organized. My dad once told me that guys like girls who are more organized. I used to think it was just something that he said to get me to take the half empty bottled waters out of my car, but now I’m not so sure.
  12. Go to more music festivals. Outside Lands in SF last year was amazeballs. There are so many other festivals… Coachella in Indio, Lollapalooza in Chicago, Bonnaroo in Tennessee, SXSW in Austin… Where should I go next? Who’s coming with me? And most importantly, which festivals will Young the Giant be at???

    great list, my love! my mom told me that guys won’t marry girls who don’t know how to cook. at this juncture of my life…im going to have to accept that comment as fact. maybe when we move out, it will be cooking central up in that beezy!
