2013


I don’t like making resolutions. Never have, probably never will. I just feel like a year is too long a period of time to decide how I’m going to behave for the entirety, yanno? If you’re into resolutions, awesome, good for you, more power to ya.

I do, however, like making lists. To do lists, shopping lists, shit-I-need-to-have-in-my-life lists. That’s why I’m not entirely sure why it never occurred to me to make a List of Shit To Do In {insert year here}, at the beginning of said year. BUT. That’s what Terra did with her Do It list and I like it (and her) so I’m copying her idea.

Here we go!

Awesome (or necessary) things I’m going to mother-effing do in 2013:

  1. ATTEND THE 5TH AND FINAL #BiSC IN MAY
    I’ve already said I’m going multiple times, but registration opens Monday and I’m posting it here so now it’s The Truth, right? Besides, I need more of this in my life:

    This isn’t my photo, and for the life of me I can’t remember who actually took it (sorry!) but I know it wasn’t me.

    And also, fuck, this is the last BiSC ever.

  2. (FINALLY) GET A TATTOO.
    Since before I even turned 18, I’ve wanted a tattoo. My big brother even made me an appointment as my 18th birthday gift, and I CHICKENED OUT. It’s more like I’m too indecisive and couldn’t decide what I wanted or where I wanted it. But this is the year. I’m open to suggestions.

  3. BE HONEST AND TRUE WITH & TO OTHERS AND, ABOVE ALL, WITH & TO MYSELF.
    I’ve spend so much time over the past… years?… worrying about making other people happy that I completely lost my own happiness. Shit has kind of hit the fan recently, and I know it’s at least partially due to the fact that I stopped putting myself first. Um, if I don’t treat myself well, how exactly can I expect others to? Right.

  4. DROP THE GUILT.
    Regarding E specifically. I tend to not do things for myself because I feel like it will make me a bad mom, or I’ll feel guilty for not spending every second with him. This kind of relates to #3, but is different enough to warrant it’s own spot on the list.

  5. GET HEALTHY.
    I’ve been battling headaches and stomach problems for a couple months now. And now I’m having some back/shoulder issues. I know it’s because I’ve been neglecting my body (and soul), and I need to just cut that shit out. Time to grow up, Kaci!

  6. RE-FOCUS
    Specifically, I’m talking about my relationships. I need to focus my time and energy on people who are important to me and to whom I’m important. But this also applies in a more general sense, too.
