It has become a little tradition for me, to revive myself and this blog during Advent and the Twelve Days of Christmas. And because I record my resolutions yearly, it makes me want to become better at keeping them. But also be better at making them. So I’m starting ‘early’ this year (before Christmas!!).

I recently had a conversation with a good friend about the concept of a bucket list. The main reason we had this conversation was because bucket-lists don’t really work out that great in day to day life. It’s a bit of a ‘someday’ thing. And we all know that ‘someday’ is not a day in the week. Someday hardly ever happens. We’ve got to actively pursue the things we want to do, and convert our somedays to everydays.

Ok, so maybe not every day. But day-to-day life can do with a little more ‘someday’. And I figured: what better way to start out then with resolutions. And maybe we can start out changing our habits a little bit – and that’s where we go full circle (it’s not big of a circle) again for the everyday resolutions.

Bottom-line/tl;dr: in my opinion resolutions are still not bullshit and we can still better ourselves in our daily lives to become better persons with more fun lives.

2015

2015 has been a year of some pretty good highs in a general state of low, if I may be so blunt. While staying on the grind I visited my friend in Copenhagen at the beginning of the year, went to Paris for a weekend in spring for the Studio Ghibli exhibit, worked on some pretty nice exhibitions when I was interning, visited the beach numerous times spontaneously, finished my thesis and graduated, saw Sufjan Stevens perform live (and dozed off for a couple of magical seconds there), had a wonderful trip to Vilnius…and pretty much stayed employed throughout the year. I know I can feel proud, but I sort of don’t really?

I’ve been thinking quite a bit about what I’d like to change in the coming year. 2015 just wasn’t really my year I guess. Here are my three resolutions to make 2016 more my kind of year.
