As many people who aren't living under a rock probably know, school has just started today in many places. Some may have even started a week ago, nonetheless, it's a fresh new year! I basically go through 3 New Years every year! January 1st, Chinese New Year, and a New School Year. I think the one that counts as my OWN New Year's would be the start of each school year. So I guess you could say these are my "New Year's Resolutions."
These aren't exactly book related, but I needed to put them somewhere, so later on in the year, I can use them against myself. LOL
- Try my best in school this year. I obviously say this every school year, but being in grade 9 this year, to me, it's very important that I do well. Otherwise, the bad marks would probably catch up with me sooner or later. And I'm talking like, 80's, OH YEA, those are bad. I'm half joking, but aside from that, I seriously want to do everything I can, and study as hard as I can to get the best marks.
- My teacher recommended challenging ourselves with different genres and types of books, so that's what I'll try to do. I already asked my fellow Edmonton Book Bloggers, and thanks to them, I've got a few books on my list. Most of them are just classics, but I think it's a pretty good place to start. I haven't been the luckiest person with classics, but i hope I'll enjoy the ones that Ambur recommended.
- Spend less time on the computer and more time either doing physical activities, taking pictures, reading, doing homework, cooking, whatever. I'll spend time on the computer when I have to write a review, to comment more on a few other blogs, watch Doctor Who.. or maybe just go on Twitter. Hehe...
- Use the library more often, for books that I'm not sure I'll even like. I have a school library and I'm like the librarian's helper, so I get dibs on a lot of books. It's an easy way to get my hands on some pretty books.
- Eat healthier. Definitely. Last year, I don't know if it was just puberty or what, EVERY SINGLE TIME I came home from school, I was hungry. I basically shoved everything down my throat. So now, even if I'm hungry, I'll make something HEALTHY to eat, instead of eating cookies and chips.
- Be more organized. I always feel like I'm not organized enough. Is that just the OCD starting to kick in?
