New Years’ Resolutions You Should Try To Keep In 2019
Start writing a post

Ah, the refreshing presence of a new year. A year full of so many possibilities, opportunities, events, and resolutions that I'm going to make but manage to bend and break every last one that I jotted down in my polka dot planner.

1. “I’m going to seriously stop spending money. I’ll budget everything next year.”

Catch me at every store inside the mall hours after making my resolutions, ignoring my efforts as I purchase this Nike sweatshirt that pulls 80 bucks out if my checking account!

​2. "I'm going to stop procrastinating so I won't be stressed out anymore!"

Starting on my projects the day they are assigned? Easy. Getting ready for work as soon as I wake up? Piece of cake. Just let me hit snooze a couple of times and I’ll be fine.

3. “Instead of Coke, I’ll get water.”

Coca-cola is a guilty pleasure. Yeah, water is cool, but I don’t think anything beats an ice cold bottle of Coke. Change my mind.

4. “I’m deleting my Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat. Social media is lame anyway!”

I mean, I tried to delete my account but then I saw that Stacy had her baby and she is ~so~ cute! How can I delete my Instagram now? Maybe, next month. It’s still in the new year.

​5. "My room is going to stay so clean, I'll be able to eat off the floor."

It’s fine, it’s just one shirt on the floor, a pair of pants, my Taco Bell bag, some chargers, and my laptop. I’ll clean it tomorrow or the next day!

6. “Going to bed past 10 isn’t going to happen anymore.”

It’s 10:37: makeup is still on, the shower is running, I’m starving, and there is an essay due in the morning with my name on it. It’s just this one night, right?

7. “I’m going to the gym every day and setting my lockscreen as Jen Selter for motivational purposes.”

I know I’m breaking my resolution of not spending money by buying these Lululemon pants, but I promise this will motivate me to workout. I promise.

At the end of their last episode, "Grey's Anatomy" teased the return of another character from Meredith's past. After the return of Patrick Dempsey's, Derek Shepherd, Grey's fans know that no one is off-limits.

The return of these characters comes after Meredith was diagnosed with COVID-19 and began experiencing hallucinations of her loved ones.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.

All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.

Lionsgate

At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
