Happy 2015

It’s a new year, which means resolutions. Most vow to quit smoking, get back into shape or focus on their jobs. I however, have never been one for new years resolutions. I don’t need an excuse like the change in the calendar year as motivation. In fact, I started getting back into my fitness regimen in December… That being said, this year is a little different. After many long years ( and I really mean LONG), I will finally be finishing my degree at Ryerson in April. This means that I will no longer be tethered to the city of Toronto, or to Canada for that matter and the world will finally be my oyster.

So here are my goals for 2015:

1. Travel. As often and as far as possible. Turn down no opportunity to see the world and experience new cultures.

2. Put Myself First. Now this might seem redundant, however, in my life I often find myself worrying too much about pleasing others and not enough about what I want. This may come as a surprise to those familiar with my no bull shit personality, but any close friend of mine would tell you that I would give up everything and anything I have to help them.

3. Give Fewer Fucks. This is something I have been working on over the last few years, caring less and living more. Being less concerned about how I am being perceived by others, worrying less about the “what ifs?” and focusing more (way more), on the “why nots?”.
