2015: My New Year’s Resolution

Welcome to 2015! It has been off to a great start for me and I hope it has been for you as well.

For years I haven’t made any resolution but now that I’m getting older I really need to be making realistic goals for myself. I know I have The 2015 List but those are just fun things I want to do throughout the year, here I’m going to make a small list of the things I want to improve in myself.

1. Eat healthy. I don’t mean by going on a full on diet that never works because the word “diet” means a temporary change. What I mean about eating healthy is not worrying about calories, just eating healthy foods and feeling great inside and out. Also a little add on to eating healthy, I want to add in that I want to drink more water. 

2. Cut out pop. I don’t drink that much pop to begin with but it’s something no one should have. It’s full of sugar, bad for your teeth and your body. It will be hard because pop is an addiction because of what’s in it but I’m sure I can at least cut it down some more.

3. Be more positive. I do have to admit I do find myself being more negative than positive and that’s something I want to change. I just want to see the positive side of things and stop worrying as much, now that doesn’t mean not caring but a way to have less stress.

4. See my Dad once a month. If you have read my blog you may know that my Dad lives 45 mins away and I don’t have a car, which makes it hard to go see him especially with work mixed into it. I just want to see my dad more often and making a goal of going up to see him once a month is a great way to do that, I mean in my opinion.

5. Get organised.  I have a great deal of stuff crammed into my small room, most of it is stuff I need and use but it’s just not organised. I actually already started this today because having a clean room, to me, is less stressful. Start with getting rid of clothes, throwing out things I don’t need or use anymore, and organizing the items I do need to keep and use.

6. Stop procrastinating, just do it! This is a bad habit of mine and I’m sure many other people have this problem too, we all wait to the last minute. I did it all throughout high school and my days now. I need to time manage better and get things done on time but in a timely manner with my 100% effort, not last minute crap. The just do it part is a way of saying go do the things you wanted to do, if you’ve wanted to travel to somewhere new, just do it. If you wanted to buy a car, work your ass off and just do it!

Thanks for reading,

Maeg.

Goodbye 2013, Hello 2014

Yesterday (Dec 30/2013)

This is mostly going to a be a rant about what happened yesterday. My sister wanted me to meet her at the mall so she’d have someone to talk to when she got her nails done and I had to get booze for new years. She told me she was done at 2:15 pm so the closest bus to that was at 1:45 pm so I obviously took it. As I get to the mall my sister tells me that she would be late due to paper work, I said okay it can’t be that long so I was thinking 2:20 pm she would get out. I walked around the mall then around Target. I didn’t eat lunch so I thought I would get a drink and something from Starbucks inside the Target and wait for my sister there. This Starbucks was so damn slow, the girl taking the orders seemed crazy and the guy who was making the drinks was really nice but extremely slow – but to be fair they only had one blender which doesn’t really work with Starbucks. To order and get my drink it took about 20 – 30 mins, I sat down and my sister still wasn’t done so I just ate my food. She finally came down and said I want to get a drink (in my head I was like oh fuck this is going to be a very long mall trip) but it went by fast this time. Finally we left to get my sister’s nails done.

We get to the nail place and everyone is sitting down on their phones or tablets, my sister said she wanted to get her nails done so they told her to sit down where she was and I sat beside her. This woman brought her damn kid to work, let her child run around in the busy mall then was yelling at her kid to stay close. While all this was happening she was suppose to be doing my sister’s nails, the whole time I said this lady needs to do her job and this is stupid, the worst service, they’re so slow, I hope this child get taken and so on. Honestly I know that is so bad to say but that’s the only way people learn is when something bad happens. The nail place which is called Millennium Nail Care, started to get busy so busy that all the girl were working on someones hands or feet. Another lady walks in and says how long and the owner said 10 mins, this man just sat on his ass on his phone and didn’t bother to start this ladies feet. Talk about the worst service ever, then another person comes and he all of the sudden starts that persons nails, I was in shock that he actually did some work. They made my sister sit there for about 30 mins just to dry her hands and then the machine didn’t work when she went to pay, so the girl that did her nails got the owner to fix it and when he did that he noticed that my sister didn’t tip. So this place lets kids run around, they sit on their asses all day, and the owner only works when he wants to and not to mention they were expensive.

After the nail place we left and went to the LCBO, we walked around and decided what we wanted and paid. As we walk to the cashier I noticed a damn 8 year old carrying booze, the cashier told her and the mum said, “Oh I didn’t know that.” The cashier said that she wasn’t suppose to sell it to her but today she would let it go because she didn’t know. I had a gift card for it so I only ended up actually paying $2.00 of my actually money and I got beer for my boyfriend too, I was pretty happy about that. My boyfriend picks us up and we went back home. 

I live in Brampton so I wasn’t really surprised that there were so many people who are terrible parents but seeing them all in one day is very stressful for someone who works with kids. 

New Years 2014

Tonight is New Years Eve, last year I just started talking to my boyfriend and he ended up ditching me the night of so I went out with my best friend. This year he was suppose to go to the Winter Classic but a whole bunch of stuff ended up happening and he didn’t end up going, so I get to see him finally for this year and I get a actual kiss. 

Tonight we are not doing anything special we decided that we were going to stay home, drink and hot tub. Some of his best friends might come over but that all depends on what they are doing. I wouldn’t be surprised if we ended up going to Nashville North, even though I hate that place. 

I will have to let you know how it goes and what we end up doing. 

Happy New Years! Be safe and warm everyone!
