happy 2014: just do it

in my overly pedantic ways, i am often the kind of person who will put off doing something because a little detail isn’t right. i won’t start making my toast until i’ve started making my bacon so they both finish on time, i won’t put on a bikini until i’ve finally toned up, i won’t apply for a job until i know i have a means to get there, and more specifically, i won’t update my blog until it looks exactly how i want it too. hence why it is the 14th of january and only now¬†am i wishing you a happy new year – begrudgingly at that, because i still didn’t buy my .com but i decided that i won’t put off blogging until i have.

like i mentioned a few posts ago, 2014 will have dearsolo seeing a few changes, and if you’re on a laptop, you’ll notice i’ve changed the layout/colour scheme for the new year and knowing myself, i’ll probably change it again. to quote sean kingston, “she’s indecisive – she cant decide.” but in the year 2014, my final year of high school before i embark on one of the most life altering journeys yet (being an adult), i want to challenge myself to a few things.

in my new years 2013 post, i spoke about not making new years resolutions and just changing my outlook on life and whatnot, but because 2013 was relatively kak, i decided that maybe i should go back to the drawing board. new years resolutions are not a list to be made on the 1st of january – they’re something i keep adding to and holding myself accountable for. and this blog has inspired me to add another one: “procrastinate less“. not only in terms of my school work (which is very important), but in life, in blogging, in everything.

what am i waiting for? if i want to keep waiting until the stars align before i do anything, i will be waiting forever and essentially do nothing. life is not perfect, and attempting to make it so before i start to live instead of living while i make it so is completely counter intuitive.

this year i aim to embody nike’s slogan “just do it.” self love now, apply now, eat my toast now, blog now – life is too short to spend it waiting. thank you for bearing with me and i hope to keep myself accountable (especially to my ‘blog now’ resolution).

p.s., as i came on to blogger to write this little post, i saw this and nearly screamed. 10 000 views in a big deal (to me) and i thank every single person who has read my blog and stayed with me in my existential crises and incessant changing of things :)))))
