New Year, New Resolutions…

It’s finally time to say goodbye to the awful year that was 2017! It started out with so much promise, but by the end of the year, I have to say it was one that I’d rather forget. There were some highlights and was a year of change, moving 900 miles from the only place I’ve really ever known. There were moments of heartbreak, and moments of pure joy, but what I’ll cherish the most from 2017 are all the wonderful friends I have in my life. They are the ones to pick me up from heartbreak, the ones I count on to be my sounding boards, and the ones that I know I can count on whenever I need them, wherever they are.

Enough of 2017 though, time to look ahead to 2018, and as usually I always set some type of “goals” for myself besides the obvious ones of working out more, eating healthier, etc..  So without further adieu here are my 2018 goals:

  1. Stop feeding into FOMO, I need to remember to be in the moment and know that I’m with the people I want to be with, and NO that fairytale romance that we all picture isn’t going to happen at the bar at 11:30pm, it’s only going to result in going home alone, or if you do go home with someone he probably won’t live here. #MyUsualLuck
  2. Stop wasting time on boys that aren’t into me… I seem to have this habit of letting them get to me, and allowing them to pop up in my life when they are needy or want something from me, and I need to just ignore it and move on knowing that someone is out there. Which means cleaning out my phone contacts so they no longer are in there #Delete
  3. Spend more time with the people that matter, this was evident in my holiday trip home to Denver, all the people who wanted to see me made time, even if it was for a couple of hours to catch up.
  4. Get off Grindr & Scruff… I do this every year, and last year was off of it until May (5 months) so my goal is to at least make it to Pride this year, unless I’m lucky enough to have met someone, then I have zero need for the apps.
  5. Travel to at least three new cities, and continue to explore Chicago and all the hidden gems that are here
  6. Drink more water when consuming alcohol, and also drink less hard liquor
  7. Lastly, stop using lol or haha to end sentences.

I can’t wait to see where this all leads but I know that I’m surrounded by some amazing friends that I can always vent to and will always have my back.

There really is no theme to this playlist but thought I’d have some fun with the intro, and then keep the party, dancing mood going throughout the mix. 2018 will be full of some reflective, vulnerable blogs paired to the music, but I won’t forget to have some fun along the way.

Oh, last but not least… I see you Justin Timberlake… my body can’t wait much longer for what’s next… (Rumor has it next Friday, Jan 5th)
