In 2016, I Resolve to…


My resolution for the past couple of years was not to have any. This year I decided to change that.

1. Leave voicemails

I read an article some time ago, about readers being the best people to fall in love with. (Aw.) Here’s a quote:

Readers, like voicemail leavers and card writers, are now a dying breed, their numbers decreasing with every GIF list and online tabloid.

The moment I read it, I realised how true it was. It made me a bit sad. I resolved to leave a voicemail every time I’m taken to one, even though the practise sounds terrifying. I’m bad with phones, and voicemail is even worse, because your mumbling will be recorded. Preserved for eternity.

Anyway, I’ve already started this one, so I hope to continue.

2. Sort Photoalbums

Doubtful I’d be printing out many photos – if any at all – but I want to organise the photos I already have into neat albums. There’s plenty. Some of them are rather recent, others are decades old. Either way, I want them all to be in one place, easy to look through.

3. Remember Simple Enjoyments

I want to go back to roots, so to say, in terms of things that bring me pleasure. I’ve never been a complicated person in that department anyway. In 2015 I barely did things that I enjoy doing, like watching movies, blogging, reading, playing with makeup, and taking photos. I need to find time for that in 2016.
