2017, Here I Come

Oh 2016. The year that took way too many celebrities. Including my goblin king. 😦

We certainly are happy to see you go, 2016.

For me personally, 2016 wasn’t all bad. After months of waiting Grizz and I finally bought our house this year so that was pretty awesome. And NYE was great as always. It was actually super relaxing to be able to ring in the new year with my close friends. I love them all and they make my heart happy. ❤

Last year, (I think) I broke my habit of not making New Year’s resolutions and made five. I only kept one. I promised myself anytime I would buy new clothes I would donate others that I don’t use. And while I didn’t do a whole hell of a lot of clothes shopping this year, I did that. The only exception is when I bought a set of cardigans, mainly for work. Because I really needed those. But I’m putting together a Good Will box, mostly with toys and stuffed animals, but clothes as well. So I’ll be making up for that anyway.

I had also promised myself to designate time to practice Photoshop, be more organized, and be better about cleaning, and blog more.  The Photoshop thing happened at first, but once my winter break was over, it went out the window. And everything else, I was just kidding myself. I mean, I’ll try again with that stuff but my main goals for this year are a little more vain. I mean, they may seem that way.

I’ve learned a lot about makeup over that past few years, and I’ve definitely branched out from where I started. My goal is to save money and treat myself to more high end products. Actually my goal is to be better about saving money in general. For one thing, this time next year I want to feel better about the winter break. So I want to  make an effort to really save enough to help supplement during that time. But also, I want to be able to really work on a wardrobe that suits me. A few years ago, I wanted to start following a pastel goth style and I never really did. But starting now I want to really involve myself in making my style be what I want it to be. Albeit, it’s probably not really pastel goth I want to chase anymore. I just want a style that outwardly reflects my personality. I just want to learn how to really be me, inside and out.
I really wish I took the time to photograph my look for NYE. I did a pretty eye look that turned out amazing. Maybe I’ll recreate it for something.

My photo goals are still the same. I would really like be great at Photoshop and work on shooting projects for myself. All that stuff has been neglected so I really want to take some time to practice my skills again.

As for blogging more, it is what it is.  I don’t think I’ll ever be a frequent blogger. So. That’s fine.

Anyway. How was your year? Are you happy it’s over? What did you do for NYE?

P.S. Are you interested at all in what I got for Christmas? Those kinds of things seem kind of braggy, but if anyone wants to see, I would do it. Lots of Pokemon related things happened.
