Can you believe 2017 has arrived?! I swear it was just yesterday that 2016 began…

2017 is my ‘grown up’ year. It’s the year that I start to pay back my student loans. It’s the year I get my first real adult job starting with an entry-level HR job. It’s the year that I prioritize my expenses (such as bills, debts, etc) rather than spending my money on vacations and hobbies.

I also have several mini goals such as: get back into driving more; getting more serious about photography; visit interior BC; get into cooking and baking more; embrace the minimalist lifestyle a bit more; better my financial habits; cross a few more things off my bucket list.

A colleague of mine told me, “I don’t believe in New Year resolutions because if I was serious about changing something, why would I wait?”. That resonated with me but didn’t stop me from keeping a mental list of goals and achievements I’d like to accomplish. I mean, he’s right – why wait an entire year just to change? I get the feeling 2017 will be a great year. It’d be more laid back (I won’t be travelling as much) but it’s more of a development year than an adventurous year, I would say.

I’d also share with you what I’ve been up to for the last month of 2016.

One the first day of snow fall in Vancouver, Laura and I built a snowman outside the gym, haha. As you can imagine, it was very slow at work….

I attended one of my best friend’s birthday party and overslept the next day.
Things started to get festive at work. Plus, it was Madison’s last day!

On Christmas Day.
