2018, notes

what’s it like dating yourself in 2018? — a piece on self love.

Good evening friends!

Valentine’s day was yesterday, and I wanted to make a little spiel on self-love in the simplest ways. Here are some things that I think we all appreciate but don’t actually give credit to for making us happy.

You want to go see that new movie with someone special? it’s called an over-sized sweatshirt and your four best friends. Lady Bird was so much better with your girls anyways.IMG_1493

Waking up and wanting to go get a bagel with someone so you go get that bagel, come home, get back in bed and turn on New Girl.

Everyday is an anniversary– that leopard print coat you wanted? it’s yours. Most online stores don’t even up-charge for gift wrapping, and that means you buy all those things you’ve saved on your wish list, ship ’em as a gift, and happy anniversary to you. “oh I shouldn’t have!”

Concerts are so much better when you’re not trying to vibe with the music while feeling conflicted as to whether or not nodding your head looks like you don’t know every word of each song. Now, you can get your freak on and whip out all your middle school dance moves because chances are you’re wearing comfortable sneakers and didn’t even do your hair for the night.

Going to sleep at a reasonable hour not wondering where your goodnight text is because your dad already texted you two hours ago.

You feel empowered to never be tethered to someone because it’s 2018 and Oprah’s Golden Globe’s speech is still the background on your phone.

Sorry if this was stupid or cheesy, but I think that self-love is pretty underrated, and being aware that you shouldn’t define yourself by your relationship status needs to be the goal of 2018.

Let’s celebrate ourselves!

this is a commitment I will most likely regret

Hey folks!

I just made an impulse decision for this year that I’m going to aim to post on this blog-thingy everyday! yes you read that correctly.

I’m tired of making excuses for this bad boy, and my schedule is actually very packed for this next semester of school… BUT I’m doing this because why not, and if I don’t end up sticking with it what else is new?

sounds like a good plan, no?

I think the reason I’m never inspired to write anymore is because I’m not actually challenging myself to do so. By forcing myself to write everyday, I’m challenging myself.

I really hope this turns out to be a good thing, and not just a couple posts about the music I’ve been listening too and the episodes of new girl that I like.

I’m also hoping that whether it’s a sentence of a post or a few solid paragraphs, I actually take this year to write and publish each day.

I guess we’ll find out.

2018, here goes nothing.

UPDATE: day seven in and I’m giving up (sigh). I will say however that I want to continue posting on a weekly basis because I did enjoy creating last few posts, and it got me out of my writer’s block for the time being. I think posting everyday is a little excessive for everyone so I’m dialing it back! okay that’s all continue with your days.

Thanks for reading,

RR
