19 Resolutions for 2019

Hey, everyone! HAPPY NEW YEAR! Welcome to the first blog post of 2019. I’m so excited for this upcoming year! Normally, I’m not a resolution maker or keeper, but, in the spirit of the new year, I thought it would be fun to change it up. I’ve been thinking long and hard about all of the things I want to change, learn, and experience this year, so I wrote them all down in public view for y’all. These are my 19 goals for 2019:

      YES!! It’s a huge habitual change but I want to make secondhand stores my FIRST stop for shopping rather than my usual Zara/F21. Resale sites have much cooler stuff anyway, most of the time.

    What do you want to read this year? I’m currently reading a book about the founding of Airbnb.
