I was Expecting "2012" to Happen and Now I am Left to Make Resolutions

This post is all about showing you quotes on pictures, the pictures have no relation to the quotes, which represent my New Year's resolutions.  

Source of this quote: Looking for Alaska By John Green
I should have sucked the marrow out of 2012.
 I should have lived everyday as if "2012" was going to actually happen. 
Well obviously the Apocalypse did not occur and i am now left to reflect on 2012 and what a "joyful" experience it was for me.
Let's put it lightly 2012 was dreadful. It was a complete utter replica of 2011 (besides the fact that i made this lovely blog which is definitely put a silver lining to 2012) , I went through the same "teen" problems that i went through in 2011 the only difference being that 2012 put them on a much more severe scale. 
I spent the year trying to rebound and also trying not to loose my temper at myself. 
My first resolution for the "New Year" is too make sure that its not as shitty as 2012 (= !

I think way to much. 
I think way too much about the littlest things, I over analyze them as if they're the most important decisions i will ever make in my entire life. 
My second resolution is to think less and not make a pro and con chart in my head for why or why not i should eat pizza over dumplings for lunch.

When i think about the best day of my life my mind draws a blank picture. I always think that the best day of my life is some day on the beach with my family but i have had that day on the beach on numerous occasions it is not one secluded day. 
I don't have a single day that i can think of that is extra-ordinary from all the other days i have lived. 
I wish in the upcoming year to find that "best day of my life (so far)" and to stop thinking it hasn't happened yet.

I want to scorch the ground with my intensity. 
2012 seemed to be a year where i was just riding a wave that constantly pushed me down i had no time to form "streaks" that i would have wished to maintain, no time to be extraordinary because 2012 seemed to be the year i was drowning just trying to get some relief. 
I hope in 2013 to be a person "who (will) scorch the ground with their intensity"  

source of the quote: The perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephan Chbosky

Have you ever wondered if these are the best days of your life? 
Well that is certainly a question Charlie from the book Perks of Being a Wallflower has pondered over. 
Well i just see it as an excuse to live your life to the fullest because what if these are your glory days
So that leads to our 5th resolution, my desperate need to make sure that i live each day to the fullest because i want to look back on my teen years and think that they did not suck that badly (but hopefully these years are not my glory days because that would be quite depressing).

In 2012 i started this blog and in 2013 i hope to achieve greater things.

Now i leave you with a quote that i made up about that pesky hope of being Great one day. 

Happy New Year, 
"And may the odds be ever in your Favor"
-Effie Trinket (The Hunger Games) 


  1. oh sara, you make me laugh, because i'm an old lady, and i know the things you think are ordinary will one day be thought of in different way. i could be wrong though. don't put so much pressure on yourself, ok? isn't your blog quite an accomplishment? i say yes.

  2. you're hilariously honest. good luck with 2013! xx
