It’s common to make goals for new years, right? And while there are some goals of mine that are *ahem* more private than others, there are some fun ones I really want to share.
I’ve been having a LOT of fun making cocktails. Thanks to our friend Colin and his pretty good knowledge of all things liquor combined with Graham’s generous christmas gift of ALL THE COCKTAIL THINGS EVER I’ve been able to make a few cocktails already in 2018.
2. Explorin’ stockholm
Stockholm is BEAUTIFUL. Whenever I go visit a new city as a tourist a lot of the things on my list could be found on a “10 things you MUST see in X city” combined with a couple of off-the-beaten-track restaurants or little spots to see. Inevitably you end up missing all those little things about a city that locals know and love, but just isn’t worth taking a stop if you’re only in a city for a short time. I honestly have no idea how much longer we have in Stockholm, there’s a big question mark above that part of my life. I would regret it big time if I didn’t explore Stockholm more and see all those little places most tourists miss.
3. Bolder fashion choices
I want to give less fucks about what I wear, wear things boldly, and wear what I love. Things I love happen to be thigh high socks, crazy patterns, cute dresses, and bright colors. I want more of a signature style, and I really want to start making my wardrobe make more sense. It’s a long process, but one involving more fox-patterned things. I’m also going to be dying my hair pink. I already have the appointment. BE READY
4. I want to WIN GOD DAMN TRIVIA HQ
fuck that app… it’s caused a problem. ’nuff said.
5. More creative journaling/painting
I’ve already started on this goal and I hope to start sharing this on my Instagram… So be prepared for my shitty art. It’s coming.
6 Giving less fucks
I’m turning 32 in 2018. It’s actually a weirdly scary age for me for some reason, and while I’m not one for freaking out about age in general, I’m realizing that I’m too god damn old to really care as much as I do about what other people think. I spend too much time letting others dictate my time, what I talk about, and what my boundaries are.
7. So. MUCH. KNITTING
I really want to do more knitting in 2018. I re-started my love affair with knitting after an almost 10 year hiatus and while I still have a thing for the hookin’ life of crochet I feel like knitting is where I belong. I definitely want to knit more gifts, more cool stuff, more wearable items, and lots of socks.
