1 – Wake up when the first alarm start ringing
I have the really bad habit to set more than one alarms and keep snoozing them. The result: I always end up having less time than I planned to get ready. And that just because I excuse myself by saying that at least I slept a bit more, which is actually not true. In fact, while I keep snoozing the alarm, I can’t seem to sleep for real and I end up being even more tired than before. I really want to learn to get up at the first alarm, and start the day in a better way.
2 – Complain less and be more positive
It happens sometimes than when I don’t know what to say, I end up breaking the silence by complaining about something. The weather, the fact that I’m bored, how annoying some people are,… It’s like I can’t help myself, and I hate that. I really want to try and stop myself. I don’t want to come out as a negative person, which in those moments I guess I am. I have to make the effort and try to say something positive instead of complaining. Or, if I can’t find anything, I could try and just shut up. I already had lots of people back when I was younger telling me how shy I was, so I don’t really mind. Or maybe I do. Ouch.
3 – Save more instead of spending everything
Lately I’ve been spending more than I should have. As a student, that’s not really the greatest thing to do. I keep telling myself that I can buy that if I sell something I don’t use anymore, but than I can’t find the time to actually try to sell my stuff. And even when I tried, nobody seem to want to buy anything. But I guess I shouldn’t give up so easily.
4 – Taking some more time to exercise
I say it all the time: I’m a lazy girl. I love staying in my bed with my beloved laptop reading blogs and watching tv series. But this doesn’t mean that I would love to be more sporty. I also bought an iPod shuffle this summer to try and get motivated to go running. But during the whole summer, I just went maybe 3 or 4 times. Shame on me. Since winter is coming, I’d really like to start doing some sort of exercise that I could do at home. I know there are lots of videos and apps showing daily routines to do. I just need to learn to stop postpone everything and just get into it. For real this time.
5 – Do a decent messy bun
This is kind of a more superficial point. I love wearing my messy bun, which I do most of the time. It’s just so comfy and it keeps your hair out of your face. But I ended up doing a good looking bun only on few occasions and mostly when I’m heading to bed. In fact, most of the times my bun is just not right: too little, way too messy, not messy enough,… Yeah, I know… still complaining. But I’d really like to be able to do a really cute messy bun, at least sometimes. I already watched lots of youtube’s video with those beauty guru showing their secrets to achieve the perfect bun. What I learned from them, it’s that they use something like 3Kg worth of bobby pins. Unfortunately, I hate using bobby pins to secure my hairstyles, so I guess I’m screwed. Oh well.
