10 Mid-Year Resolutions As Told By Supernatural

Making changes in your life isn't reserved to just the beginning of the year.

June is the perfect time to make new resolutions for the year. With half the year gone you can assess which resolutions you made in January and other changes need to be made so you end the year strong. If you're like me and never made a resolution in the first place, then now is the perfect time to set goals for the rest of the year.

Some of my goals for the last six months of the year are...


1. Prepare for the upcoming school year.

My first year of college starts in August, and I know it won't be as easy as my preceding school years. By getting ahead in studying and taking placement exams this summer, I'll make my school year more manageable.

2. Make new friends

Since these next six months will hold new school years for most of us, it's the perfect time to expand your friend group. In my case, I am leaving many peers from high school and am virtually starting over in the friend department. Which is why I'm making it my goal to make at least one new friend.

3. Read six books.

Six books in six months seems easy enough. I haven't been reading as much as I want to, but by setting the goal to read just one book a month taking on my TBR list will be easier.

4. Get that winter body.

Most people work all winter to get their "summer body." I rather use the summer to prepare me for the upcoming cold months. Embrace these warm days by going outside and being active. I don't know about you, but I rather play in the sun, then decide to work out in the winter.

5. Learn to cook/bake something new.

You may call it fall, but I call it pie season. By the end of the year I want to be able to decently bake some form of pastry.

6. Try a new style.

I am content with wearing the same thing everyday, but it doesn't hurt to change things up sometimes. Finding a new style can be fun and leads to more ways of expressing yourself.

7. Get good grades.

The beginning of the school year is the longest and usually the hardest. My goal is to buckle down, don't procrastinate and maintain a good GPA.

8. Keep a journal.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who says that they're actually going to keep a journal this year, then forgets three days into it. Memories are fleeting, so we need to catalog them for future reference.

9. Grow my faith in God.

It is easy to repent and remember to pray when you need something or when things go wrong, but what about on the good days? I'm going to try to pray everyday and become a better Christian.

10. Write more.

With school, work, etc, finding time to do something creative can be hard. It's never too late to pick up a hobby.

Holidays With the Family?

For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
