My Awkwardness

Happy Freaking New Year: Resolutions and my 2013 Review

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Just kidding. I’m not that excited.  I’m trying to have low expectations so I won’t be disappointed.  Can we all agree that last year kinda sucked?  Like, it didn’t totally suck, but it wasn’t great. It was a good/bad year. As far my social life went in 2013, I think it was pretty good. I graduated high school, started a blog…oh wait. That’s where my list of accomplishments ends. ;P

I’s just kidding (no I’m not). The summer really sucked, though. Ramadan didn’t feel like Ramadan and it felt like so many bad things were happening all at once.  Nobody was happy or getting along, and it was just a really rough summer. College wasnt so bad, but it wasn’t great either.  But it definitely wasn’t the worst part of me year. I feel like in 2013 I just had so many ups and downs and hit rick bottom with certain aspects of my life (yes, I’m purposely being vague. No, I don’t do drugs) and as cliche as it sounds, I learned a lot about myself. I figured out exactly what I want out of life, and I’ve also realized I’m not going to get everything I want. I learned I need to stop comparing myself to other people and getting jealous over things that I can’t control. I realized there are some things that I’m just going to have to deal with on my own, and I have to stop stressing out over little things. Also, I’m all talk. I keep telling myself I’m gonna change, but I don’t do a damn thing about it.

So, here are my resolutions:

– write in my diary everyday.
Not this blog diary. I bought a little black journal to write in. I want to be able to be able to remember more. I want to remember the funny things my nana tells me, or the cool stuff I did over the weekend, or the conversations I had with my sister.  I wanna remember all of it. Or at the very least, have some record of it. I can hardly remember last year and I can’t remember anything from my childhood before I was seven years old. Its kinda the same reason I started blogging.  I want some record of things.

– Call my nani every sunday.
I promised my nani that I’d call her ecery sunday and something always gets in the way and I keep forgetting. But really I don’t have any excuses. After my dadima passed away I just kept thinking of all the times I could have talked with her or spent tine with her and didn’t. I don’t want to feel like that about anyone else. And I don’t want anyone thinking I didn’t spend enough time with them.

– Chill out.
I have a lot of pet peeves. I get mad easily. I’m pretty sure I have anger issues. I get stressed out easily too. When I’m nervous or worried I cant eat and I feel sick and its just annoying. Especially when I get worried out things that don’t really matter. I just need to relax.

– Eat more chocolate.
Does this even need an explanation?

– Don’t get any crappy haircuts.
…yeahhh. At the beginning of the year I chopped off all my hair. And then I cried about it. I’m never doing that again.

– Make this blog more…islamic.
The name of the blog has the word “Muslim” in it, but I don’t talk about religion as much as I should. And Im trying to learn more about Islam.  So I’m thinking maybe I’ll pick a topic every week and do some research and learn you some things. Yes? No? Maybe?

Mkay. Das it. I’m done. I mean I have more stuff to tell you about,  but like,  yeah. There will be plenty more posts this week.

    1. Nope. I only do morals when I’m telling stories or I’m trying to actually make a point. I don’t like to write a stupid sentence just for the sake of having a moral. Dont worry, there will be plenty more morals soon. I’ve got stories to tell 🙂


  1. Actually 2013 was an amazing year. *knocks on wood*

    Jokes aside, I hope 2014 is a great year for you. It depends on your mindset, honestly. Even if you screw up your resolutions, you gotta keep carrying on. If you mess up, remember that you have the ability to change yourself at this very second. It’s all a matter of willpower.

    I guess you could make your blog more religion-oriented, but don’t you have non-Muslim followers too? A topic once a week sounds good; more than that will be going overboard in my opinion.

    I wish you lots of happiness and a massive chocolate bar. Catch you later, chica.
