Musing: Year End Resolutions

Today is the second last day of 2015 and guess what...I still have 10 things that I need to do before I run of time. And as ridiculous as every single one the items are on the list I had my own reasons for penning them down: 

(Don't judge me.)

Thank you Diptee di, Subhro da and Ri for this very cute POST-IT note

I'm pretty sure the last one is going to make you all go, "Whaaaaaa------???" But before all your brains begin to device and concoct theories which in reality make zero sense, let me explain it. 

The love letter is for myself. I intend to write a love letter for my future self. You're probably going to roll your eyes at this statement and say, "Ha ha! Don't lie to us, Aniesha." The only response I have to that is, "I'm not going to waste my time explaining this to you. Moving on." 

But in case you guys want to do this, it's called writing a love letter to yourself. I know it sounds weird and borderline insane, but it's a really good idea to write about all the good things about yourself, all the things you've achieved and all the people in your life you are grateful for in the form of a letter. Because in 2016 on a day when things go wrong (because I promise you that on certain days things will seem bleak), when you stumble across this letter, it'll fill you with a lot of hope. 

Christmas Loot from Diptee Di, Subhro Da and Ri 
Now let's go back to my list again. BUZZ Magazine. Yes, I'm going to stay up all night if needed, but we're going to bring out that magazine before 2015 ends for sure. 

The letters that I need to write and I need to post. I located a Post Office closer to my home. Guess who's going to NOT work and write letters today? ;) And guess who is leaving her house at 9:45 am tomorrow :P

Father Christmas visited the wrong house!!!
5 to 7 are things which I believe I need to work on. Although to be honest, I have not been very angry in a long, long time. So maybe I'm so over all that rage that used to keep me a prisoner. I've learned how to let go... Or maybe I have just accepted life as it is and not as I think it should be...I don't know. (Okay, this is confusing. New thing on the list: 11. STOP BEING SO CONFUSED.)

Write a short story. That one's actually the easiest one on my list. Writing is second nature to me. So I'll post a story soon. Maybe it'll be my New Year's gift to you all. 

And the review of 2015. Umm...can this blog post count as it? Okay, no. No more being lazy. I'll do that as a special for 31st December. Focusing on only the good things of 2015. 

I got a lot of things this Christmas. But the best one was this: 

Bibliobibuli's Secret Santa Gift
My friend Esha was really surprised that I got a lot of diaries for Christmas, because to quote her, "When was the last time you wrote in a notebook?" 

(Writing down work lists, and planning out updates do not count by the way.) She meant writing journals, stories in diaries and maybe even poems. Well, maybe this time I'll do it. 

I did get a lot of diaries and it's time I put them into good use. I have begun to art journal. Which is actually such a brilliant way to relax...since you do whatever you want, without the whole, "Oh my God...this HAS to make sense. This HAS to go this certain way." 

And a friend of my requested that instead of a letter, I write a whole journal and send it to them at the end of the year. (Ha ha. So NOT going to happen.)

I've lost track of my train of thoughts now. But yes, I'll be back tomorrow with all the good things that happened in 2015. And what I think about New Year's. 

Until next time, 
Love from 
Aniesha. 

P.S. Do you guys have some leftover work for 2015? Are you going to race against time to get it done like me? Let me know in the comments section below.

  3. My end-of-year resolution is to publish the 6th in the series of the Harry Potter Reread Project by tomorrow. I just randomly decided that. Oh, and to wash my hair. Wish me luck
