Final 2013 NYR Update {Part 1}

After looking back at last year's New Years Resolution post, I'm kind of LOLing. Because I thought the way I did it was going to work. It was, in fact, an epic fail. 

I thought I'd done a good job of assessing my general life timeline and figuring out what would fit best for each month. Here's my breakdown of the struggle that was 2013 from January to June:

January- Organization
I think this post says it all about how the whole organization thing went. It was ugly. I finally got the desk situation fully in order before I left for Christmas break. Yeah… It's been a year.

February- Fitness
This actually worked out really well. It was perfect motivation for spring break and I can honestly say I'm in the best shape of my life right now. Maybe not "physically" but I've tried so many new things with my workouts and I'm pumped to make this one of my priorities next year as well. 

March- Friendships
I would like to think I did a decent job of this throughout the year. I still have a hard time keeping in contact with my friends that I don't see regularly. But I've definitely spent a lot more time with my friends this past semester than I have in the past 3. So I'm proud of that.

April- Studying
I look back on last spring semester and it's honestly a blur. I dropped a class halfway through. I was consumed by my major. Therefore studying wasn't really a priority. And it wasn't this semester either. I really think that's just been the nature of the beast for me. I'm not a studier. So maybe next year?

May- Style
LOLing at this one. I still don't know what I like to wear. I just buy things. And hope they match. I'm probably never going to figure this out. I just like everything that isn't ugly I guess? I quit.

June- Work
This one almost makes me angry to think about. I spent a good chunk of my spring semester stressing about internships. I ended up not getting one at all after interviewing with ESPN twice and not landing that one-- it kind of took the wind out of my sails. So the entire month of June I literally sat on my couch in Athens doing nothing but blogging. So… Yeah. But! I have made some serious progress when it comes to what I want to do with my life in the future because of my successes and failures this past year. So it's still progress. 

Part 2 of the 2013 struggle is coming tomorrow. Be on the look out!
