What a weirdly interesting year 2016 turned out to be. 

I’m not going to say that it was terrible, but overall it wasn’t. But there were a lot of terrible celebrity deaths. (CARRIE FISHER?! ugh) There were some terrible dates. There were some terrible situations. There were some terrible people. My dog died. My biological father died. My chickens got killed. My heart was broken. My life, at times, felt like it was over. 

 

BUT

 

My family grew. My fondness of makeup grew. There were some good dates. I met fun new people. I learned to be okay by myself. My faith grew. My happiness grew abundantly. My life went on. We got a new puppy. We have chickens. I pretty much have everything I want and the ability to get whatever else I want at a whim. 

So while my blog definitely took the back burner… My life didn’t collapse. In fact, it continued in a whirlwind of crazy. It only is starting to feel like things are calming down. I’m sure you’ve all noticed even a lack of my instagram posts – and we all know how much I love and adore instagram – It’s been so crazy that I haven’t even WANTED to post things on Instagram. But, I have goals. I have plans. I have things I want to write about. So, here I am. I am going to write my 2017 goals down and hopefully I’ll keep to them better than my last year’s goals. 😉 

 

Goals 

  • Blog More 
    • I’m not going to put a set amount on this because we all know that I won’t be able to keep it. If it were up to me, I’d post daily and not do anything else but unfortunately, life gets in the way of those sorts of goals. So, I’m going to post MORE … I’m just not sure how much more. 
  • Be Braver 
    • I am almost 30 years old. I just barely, a couple of weeks ago, went to a movie alone for the first time in my entire life. I’m afraid to do things by myself. Not because I’m afraid of being alone.. I’m afraid of what people think. I want to be braver. I want to be okay being alone. I want to not care what people think.
  • Grow My Lipsense Business 
    • I’m utterly and completely obsessed with LipSense. It’s crazy. I know that I’ve posted about it the last couple of times and you’re probably thinking, “OMG, SHUT UP! WE GET IT!”… But, I promise you don’t get it. I adore LipSense
  • Date. 
    • Ew. Okay but I am like almost 30 and kind of really just want to be in a serious relationship and/or married. The struggle is so real, guys. SO REAL. Here’s the catch though. I don’t do online dating. Meaning, like match.com and stuff.. that’s out of the question. So, that means we have to rely on my awkwardly adorableness to get a date. It’s not working out well so far… Obviously. I guess this means that I have to 1) be more social and 2) let people set me up on blind dates. (EEK!) Will any of this happen? I’m not really sure. But, if I learned anything this last year it’s that I’m a relationship type of girl and I just want to be with someone that is going to treat me the right way. I don’t think that’s too much to ask for. Right? 
  • Take more pictures. 
    • I already take a lot of pictures but I want to take more. That’s always a goal. 

 

 

What are your goals this year?

  2. How many times will I be able to speak of your eloquence, insight and wisdom… Over and over. Anyone who has known the special love of a dog, that unconditional loyalty seen in those deep eyes, will appreciate this post. Anyone who has not known it should run, run to the nearest animal shelter and find a special creature who needs a home…because that person needs to know this feeling, too. Thank you.

  3. google plusone buttons on my site shows zero, I had friends click on them too, the button turns blue indicating that it registers the click but the count remains zero!!!!

  4. Hi Fouad,Thanks for sharing your thoughts on online learning and for your comments about the website. I look forward to hearing from you; I’m always interested in exchanging ideas with others who are interested in online learning–particularly for translation courses.

  5. It's a shame that we in this country can't see how history does indeed repeat itself. Why can't we learn from the collapse of similar economies in other countries? Why? Because Americans (or many people in America) think we're "different" and "untouchable." Unfortunately, the only way we will find out that's not so is to experience it for ourselves. By the time we find out, we will be in the same position. Very sad for America!

  6. Sometimes I can by my side with me on his nice apartment and found the same book. I would be very happy to make your stay in my holiday home and see you soon for me.

  7. Jean-Jacques sans aucun élément il m’est difficile de vous répondre. Le diagnostiqueur immobilier est assujetti à une obligation de moyens et non de résultat, il vous faudrait donc prouver l’insuffisance des investigations du professionnel ou ses erreurs manifestes pour mettre en cause sa responsabilité. Néanmoins vu votre cas la réalisation d’un nouveau diagnostic de performance énergétique basé sur votre consommation réelle me semble plus appropriée.

  9. Não é religião? Ora… para a doutrina há ideias inquestionáveis, tais como: “deus existe”, “deus é bom, justo (…)”, “a reencarnação é uma lei de deus”… Prezado, se isso não é dogma, o que seria então? Lembre-se que nenhuma dessas afirmações pode ser provada. É apenas especulação. Abs.ÂÂ

  11. I love the imagery in the crashing-hypotheses-into-walls metaphor. With our current nutrition paradigm, we are swaddling it in bubble-wrap and not letting anyone touch it, an unfortunate consequence of policy and science becoming conflated.

  12. Vaping is awesome!! I’ve only been doing it for 6 months, but I felt much better in terms of breathing, energy, and smell. I could instantly feel a difference in my overall health!!

  18. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your weblog. You have some really good articles and I believe I would be a good asset.

  21. Aw, this was a really nice post. In idea I would like to put in writing like this additionally ? taking time and actual effort to make a very good article? but what can I say? I procrastinate alot and by no means seem to get something done.

  26. The piece we listened to in class is called the Fanfare for the Common Man. It sounded like victory.It was a very strong piece. The instruments in this piece were percussion and brass instruments.i wouldnt listen to this peice on any day. but it sounds nice.

  27. I am not sure it “proves” that Islam works better, but it certainly shows the power of having a number of children and then raising them in that faith (whether Mormon, Muslim, Jewish, or Christian). If the video had given information about the spread of Islam through other means of one-on-one or personal contact then that might be better support for your comment. Islam is definitely increasing. I am not trying to deny that. I posted the video link as a challenge to fellow Christians that we should continue to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ.

  30. I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your sites really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your site to come back in the future. Many thanks

  31. I have got 1 idea for your weblog. It looks like right now there are a few cascading stylesheet problems when opening a selection of web pages inside google chrome and internet explorer. It is functioning okay in internet explorer. Probably you can double check that.

  32. you are the best…You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening …

  33. Oh wow. It's beautiful and Kona raisin is a current favorite of mine. It's central to a quilt top I'm planning for the "Naked Bed" challenge so it's quite easy to say that this would be well-loved here in my home. As for cats, I love them and, oddly enough so does my big, goofy dog. — Amy

  34. Cheers, Rob. Yes that’s my hunch too. It would certainly be seen as an unprofessional decision these days. I wonder if people saw it like that at the time, though, a few years after a war which had killed millions, or whether it would have been seen as a glorious thing to die trying.

  35. I am no longer positive the place you’re getting your information, but good topic. I must spend a while studying much more or figuring out more. Thank you for excellent information I used to be on the lookout for this info for my mission.

  41. great points altogether, you just gained a brand new reader. What would you suggest about your post that you made a few days ago? Any positive?

  42. Individuals often ignore the signs dismissing them as a minor infection, which is a big mistake. If you spot any sores, report them to the healthcare professional immediately. If not treated promptly, these sores maximize the risk of passing or acquiring other sexually transmitted infections including the deadly AIDS virus

  43. I’d should verify with you here. Which isn’t something I often do! I enjoy studying a post that can make individuals think. Also, thanks for allowing me to remark!

  50. Hi Matthew, my big question is why is Amazon insisting on sellers using EAN’s when there is no legal requirement for sellers to do so? All this does is add an extra cost onto the product (£20 for 1 EAN, ridiculous) and stops small businesses competing with larger businesses. I understand the requirement if Amazon are fulfilling the distribution for a seller but if a seller is distributing the goods himself there should be no requirement at all.I would be interested in your thoughts on this.

  51. Coucou Miss,Merci pour ton commentaire, toi aussi t’es super sympa ! C’est vrai que la blogosphère c’est assez communautaire ! Bon sinon j’ai relu ton post sur Coltman, c’est vrai qu’elle est hideuse cette pochette ! Faut aussi que je rattrape mon retard, il y a beaucoup de nouveautés !BizRégis

  52. Kann ich nicht nachvollziehen. Bundesgesetz geht immer über Landesgesetz (oder Bundestaatengesetz), auch in den USA. Hast du Quellen die nicht nur Meinungsäußerungen sind, sondern harte Fakten?Den besagten Blog kenne ich – mochte ihn aber nicht, als ich mal eine Zeit mitlas. Vielleicht hat sich’s ja geändert.Ãœbrigens, ginge Bundesgesetz nicht über Landesgesetz, wäre die Todesstrafe in Hessen noch verhängbar.

  59. When my son was younger he would go to bed around 7:00 but it’s gradually gotten later. He just turned 9 and his bedtime is 8:30 on school nights and 9:00 on weekends. We’ve always been very consistent with bedtime. My husband and I need that quiet time at night.

    A new puppy is always fun. I actually met my boyfriend off of Tinder and we have been together for 2 years and 2 months now. Sometimes online dating is actually kinda fun.

  83. Try out a 365 this year! I’m going to start tomorrow! I am not a quitter even though it tends to fade over the course of the year. If I can get over having that grief period and the zombie mode of being a “new mother” again I will make it this year I hope!

    Aww I’m sorry to hear about the losses you suffered this year. It sounds like you also had some ups too! Getting a new puppy, always exciting! I can totally relate to not wanting to do things on your own. I am 26 and have never been to a movie by myself. I hope 2017 turns out to be amazing!
