Hello, 2018! It is another year to turn your “can’t” into “can,” and your “won’t” into “will.” It is another year to turn your life into the life that YOU want to lead.

Every year, on January 1st

As a wise man once said, “do not let the fear of striking out, keep you from playing the game.” New Year's resolutions are great. It means that you are taking the initiative to make a positive change in your life. A resolution you make one year can take you multiple years to fulfill, but it is the actions and steps that you are taking each year that are rewarding and self-fulfilling. My wish for you is that you will not fear failure in 2018.

Remember: we do not lose. We either win or we learn.

My New Year’s resolution this year is to focus on my blessings rather than my burdens. There is so much to be thankful for and it is time that I start to recognize these things and make sure that these people know how grateful I am to be blessed by their presence.

I am thankful for the opportunities that I have been given.

I am thankful for the friends that I have made and the friends that I have kept.

I am thankful for the family that I have and the additions that we have made.

I am thankful to be healthy and strong.

I am thankful for my chance at a great education.

My resolution this New Year is to make this known. It is to take action towards my blessings and worry less about my burdens.

7 Spooktacular Ways To Give Your Halloween Pumpkin A Grown-Up Twist By Incorporating Alcohol

Shoutout to my best friend, Pinterest.

As you get older, some people may think they're too old to carve a pumpkin for Halloween. Those people are wrong. First reason: it doesn't matter how old or ~mature~ you get, no one is "too old" for Halloween. Second reason: pumpkin kegs are a thing, so there you go. Here are some creative ways to give your jack o' lanterns a little bit of a "grown-up" twist:

1. The pumpkin keg

This one's for all the beer-lovers out there. What's a more festive way to drink beer than drinking straight out of a pumpkin? Also, Halloween is the only time when it's acceptable to drink beer out of a pumpkin, so if you're into that, why not take advantage of it?

2. Painted pumpkins

Life imitates art? For all the less crafty souls out there, painting a pumpkin is 100x easier than carving, and a lot easier to clean up. Also, this makes for adorable, yet ~spooky~ decorations for your Halloween party.

3. Pumpkin wine dispenser

Slap the pumpkin anyone? If someone walked up to me at a party with a whole ass pumpkin and told me to "slap the bag" my basic girl persona would immediately take over and grab that pumpkin with no questions asked. This is obviously much like the pumpkin keg, but for wine lovers.

4. Pumpkin cooler

Nothing says "Halloween" like chilling your alcohol inside a pumpkin.

5. Pumpkin beer holder

Essentially, the same idea as the pumpkin cooler, but with a different technique.

6. Pumpkin punch bowl

Only the realest Halloween fans would drink straight from a pumpkin.

7. Drunk pumpkins

Creative, yet relatable. This pumpkin is also a good reminder to be responsible with your drinking and not get Halloween wasted.
