Let's be real: every other year I gave up on my resolutions shortly after I made them. This year I tried making my resolutions more sustainable by figuring out why I am resolving to do these things.
Twenty-Sixteen will be the year I focus on health and happiness by making it a priority to incorporate these small little goals into my life.

7. Take more day trips to Philly (and surrounding areas): Saint Joe's is 0.2 seconds away from Philly, so I'm not exactly sure why my friends and I don't take advantage of all the city has to offer. Museums, cafes, concerts, and more: I want to start seeing it all this year. It's amazing how far a train ticket and $10 can take you in Philly.
9. Don't procrastinate: I should win an award for procrastinating because I'm really good at it. Why would I write a paper little by little of the course of a week when I can write it all starting at 9pm the night before it's due and still get the same grade on it? Less procrastination = less stress, less late nights, less tired eyes the next day.
10. Stop trying to be perfect: I'm guilty of trying to be perfect and trying to do it all, which in turn puts a lot of unnecessary stress on myself. I want to plan my life 10 years in advance (I wish I was kidding). Some planning is definitely necessary, but perhaps my idea of planning is overkill. It's stressful to think if I don't get a 100% in every class, if I'm not the president of three clubs, and if I don't land a cool internship then I'll never reach my career goals. Those are not positive thoughts to have.
Have a sweet 2016!
