goals of 2015

and some others:
  • wear my hair down. this sounds so silly, I know, but I wore way too many buns last year. I just need to, literally, let it go.
  • pick up a new hobby. as mentioned in the list in the picture, I want to try my hand at a new hobby/skill. I'm thinking of getting this calligraphy set. any suggestions? I think it would be neat to become good at beautiful hand-lettering. also, my mom was getting rid of some knitting needles and yarn, so I hoarded them and am thinking, "yeah, I could give that a try." why not? you have to start somewhere.
  • take more pictures on the go. sometimes I feel strange whipping out my fatty canon in random places. I don't have a smartphone/iPhone with an indiscreet camera, so sometimes I feel silly when I'm like, "okay, clich√©, but I want to take a picture of my burrito." but, that's my own fault. no one is yelling out, "hey, blondie, stop taking that picture over there!" even if they're thinking it. but, so what? pretty much it boils down to me needing to stop caring what others think and follow my photo-gut, even if it's a just a slushie or a sweet crack on the sidewalk.
  • try new foods. we love to eat out, but I want to be more adventurous in my choices since I like to play it safe with my tried and true menu items. it'll also be exciting when we move (wherever that'll be...) to start trying the local restaurants.

2015 is going to be a year of transition, new adventures, and personal growth. I hope these goals will help me become a better laurel and bring us greater happiness and more positive life experience.

  1. Okay. So, I learned a lot from this post. First, what is a "Provo Parting" list? I am guessing it may have something to do with graduating, pre-Phd trip, wanting to try new foods and the fact that 2015 will be a year of transitions! What's the plan?
