Hopes For The New Year Expressed In Disney Gifs

A dream is a wish your heart makes....

As the holiday season comes and passes, this is the time of year we all sit around and reflect on the past 365 days and what we want to do to make the next 365 better. Most of it leads to continuously-failed attempts at getting fit, (I bet gyms love it when you pay for a three-month membership and show up once) promises to improve grades that go out the window as soon as you look at the class syllabus, and swearing to yourself you’ll totally give up chocolate for Lent this year (don’t tell anyone that at the last minute you changed your promise to lima beans). New Year’s is horrendously unsuccessful every year, at least for most people, but there’s still hope that we can improve ourselves within 2017. Here are my personal hopes for the future as expressed in Disney gifs.

1) Keep Up Motivation


Sophomore slump is real. I’m hoping this new, fresh start to a new Spring 2017 semester will inspire me to stop putting off assignments until the last minute. Write an essay ahead of time. Do the reading before class. Much easier said than done, but it’s not entirely out of the question.

2) Take More Chances

My freshman year I took a lot of risks—I put myself out there more than I had in the entirety of my life before. Thankfully out of it came some amazing friends and groups of people I’ll cherish forever, but I’ve recently found myself in a rut. In 2017 I’d like to regain that spirit of newness and exploration that started everything for me here at UGA. It was scary, of course, but damn it if I didn’t have fun.

3) Moments of Pure Bliss

You know those moments where you’re looking out at a night sky surrounded by people who love you and you just sort of realize “hey, this is my life, this is me, and in this moment, I’m so incredibly happy?” Those are my favorite moments. No matter how cliché or Perks of Being a Wallflower-esque they may seem, there’s nothing like a moment of genuine happiness to make you realize how great your life is right now. I want 2017 to be full of those moments.

4) Refuse to Allow Toxicity

As I grow older with every year I go through another cleanse of the people around me—in high school I was trapped with the same kids every day for 8-10 hours, so any bad vibes or toxic attitudes were pretty much impossible to avoid. But now I find that I’m significantly happier each time I let someone who has no business in my life out. It’s sad sometimes, sure, but not all friends last forever. And I hope I can continue this spirit to only surround myself with those who genuinely love and support me.

5) Inspiration Runs Rampant


Nothing in this world makes me feel more amazing and accomplished than creation—usually through writing. But as any writer knows, unless you have iron willpower, your ability to write well and clearly is entirely dependent on when inspiration hits you. I’ve cancelled plans, skipped meals, and stayed up late nights to harness the wave of inspiration before it washes away, because it can come and go in the blink of an eye. So I want to find more things in 2017 that inspire me to create and further cultivate myself as a writer. It’s my passion, it’s my love, and it’s my life. (Hopefully—if the economy doesn’t fall apart by the time I graduate.)

(That’s secretly hope 5.5.)

Here's to a happy 2017!

Why Spring Time Is The Best Time Of The Year

With the first day of spring right around the corner, here are some reasons why spring is the best time of year!

If you are like me, you know that seasonal depression is real. I'm happiest when the weather is nice and I can explore what nature has to offer. I look to spring every year, because I know there is more to do and the extra hours of daylight makes for additional time to do my favorite things. I love to run outside, travel to nearby parks and outdoor attractions, and just enjoy the beauty and nostalgia of the outdoors.

Spring is a great time to get back in shape. There are a variety of fresh fruits and veggies that you can get at any local farmers market or grocery store to spice up your diet in the spring. Also, the gym can be monotonous after a long winter, so the start of spring brings a breath of fresh air for many outdoor fitness activities. Go for a walk or run done local trails or paths, do yoga outside, or even go go biking, hiking, or kayaking. The spring offers so many cool opportunities to become healthier.

Spring always reminds me of Easter time and Easter always makes me think of quality time spent with friends and family. Plus, I always think of baby animals and flowers blooming, two things that bring everyone joy. If you get a chance you have to visit the cherry blossom trees in Washington D.C., it is such a beautiful site. Furthermore, one of my favorite things is that first really sunny, warm day in the spring when you can open all the windows in your house and savor the start of spring.

The springtime also means that summer break is closer. After a long 8 or 9 months of school, the thought of a nice 3 month break is refreshing. Start planning your summer job, internship, or whatever you want to get into this summer, to give you some motivation to finish the semester strong.

Spring has so much to offer so prepare for the rainy days of April and the sunny days, full of flowers in May, and everything in between!
