A Resolution Revolution

Let's talk about resolutions. I make them and some I follow thru, yet other times I fall woefully short. This year I have this blog to keep me accountable. I have three things I would like to accomplish and I think I can do it. Two of them are a bit easy. The third has been a goal for a while, but I finally feel like I can make it this year.

1. Model for my own Etsy pics-So I am a decent looking gal with a decent body. I think it is darn near time I get over my 'I look terrible in every photo ever' phobia and model my own clothes. Stores with models seem so much more polished than those without and even though I could ask friends/my cousin to, it just always seems so hard to sync up schedules. I'm hoping that at some point this year I can conquer said fear and model some dresses. Shooting for reaching this goal by summer, but maybe even sooner. Time will tell.

2. (Re)Start my artsy Etsy store-Yeah, I started out on Etsy with my photography and hair doodads. They are now completely gone and it's all about vintage. I think it is about time for me to restart the artsy. I make jewelry and have for some time, so I might sell that as well. Hopefully soon. Like January. This is the easiest of the three.

3. THE MEGA RESOLUTION-I plan on buying my first house this year. I am currently a single, 25 yr old gal living in my childhood home. It sucks. I love my Mom and I am grateful that she has let me live here for a while so that I could save some cash, but gosh I need a place of my own. And no more roommates. I have had more than enough of them. They provide hilarious stories later on, but I just want my own place. I'll be 26 in May and I think buying my own place this year would be a pretty proud moment for me. Fingers crossed!

So there are my three resolutions. What are yours?

And a rousing rendition of Auld Lang Syne:

i think those are great resolutions!

The only one I have at the moment is to be a better ME, all the way around. But there are a few projects I want to work on, so I think those will happen in 2011 :)

Hope you NYE is a blast!

Good luck!!! I have rented for going on five years, and every time I write that check, I die a little inside. I HATE RENTING. Kudos for taking the plunge, and the very best of luck!

My resolution was to have no resolutions. I think I am liking it very much. But I know what you mean about modeling for your own Etsy Pics. What is the matter with us?

For those who don't have a blog, it is a good idea to find a way to let friends and family know of your resolutions in order to hold yourself accountable. Maybe we should all get into the habbit of emailing one another resolutions, or ... posting them on facebook/twitter.. etc. Knowing that others are aware of your resolution is a great nudge towards keeping yourself from failing.
