New Year Resolutions

Happy New Year by Snowfall-lullaby
Another year has passed, and I cannot believe it's already 2014. Time passes by so fast - 5 years ago I was in the middle of my BA freshman year, and this year I will already finish my MA. I never believed in new year resolutions, and thus, I never had any. I knew I wouldn't stick to them, so my new year resolutions this year would be just things that I already did in 2013, and that I should continue doing in 2014. Not new things - imposing a starting date on starting to do new things doesn't work (for me at least). Also, I didn't want to put any academic or professional related activities - just those that would make me feel happier, healthier, and a better person. So, here they are:
  • write 3 times /week for the blog
  • exercise 4 times/week 
  • read 1 book/month
  • be more grateful & complain less
  • eat healthier, with more veggies& fruits
  • drink at least 1l of water/day
  • take photos. more photos. lots of photos
I noticed that when I did at least any of the two, at the same time, for a considerable amount of time, I simply felt good, and also productive. So find out what habits made your life better last year, and promise yourself, as part of your new year resolutions, to stick to them next year too (even adding new ones along the way).

Plants for the soul

You are in a new place. A new country, a new city, a new room. The room is the place where you spend a considerable amount of time and a relaxing, but motivating atmosphere is needed. Once a room has flowers and plants, your room has a life, a soul. They enchant you with their colors and fragility. Bold green, bright yellow, fiery red, gentle lilla - all contrasting with the pots, the pure white of the walls. Unless you have a pet, you and the plants are the only things that feel alive in your room. The state of the plants show how responsible is they care giver.
