I feel like the world is split this year. We’re either making resolutions or setting goals.
Resolutions = Failure and Abandonment.
Goals = Attainable and Success!
To that end, I’ve got plans. What ties them all together? They’re 100% unnecessary and 100% for my own vanity.
In 2011, here’s what’s happening:
I want to learn how to do a proper Kate Middleton-style Smokey Eye. Have you ever tried following the instructions on the back of the eye shadow compact? The end result is something closer to streetwalker than sassy. I can’t live my life that way anymore.
I’m going to Run a Marathon. I’m in the best shape of my life. Right now I’m running 30+ miles a week, and in the last year, I put over a thousand miles on this body of mine. A THOUSAND. I am simultaneously astonished and insanely proud of how far I’ve come from the point of Avoiding Fitness At All Costs. To that end, it’s time to do the 26.2.
I need to Buy More Shoes. The girl who waits six months to buy a pair of heels that cost less than $100 is dead to me.
I’m (and by that I mean my proxy) going to Paint Our Bathrooms. It’s a project that’s been on the docket for the last two years and what it will do for my peace of mind is immeasurable. Hasta la vista, apricot.
What are your plans for 2011?
