How I'm Getting Ready for 2018

2018 is going to be a year of changes for me. I will finish up my last semester of college and graduate, I will {fingers crossed} get an amazing job, move to a new city and start a new chapter of my life. While all of this is cliche, it is true and so I am trying to get ready for the onslaught that will be 2018. Below are a few things I'm trying to get done by 11:59 on Dec. 31st; we'll see if I get them accomplished. Let me know what you're doing to get your mind/body/whatever ready for the exciting 2018 year - xoxo darling, Hayden.

#1: Go through all old photos & delete - I am a photo hoarder. Like it is a problem. And my computer has been telling me that my disk is full so in an effort to fix the problem I am currently going through iPhoto and doing mass deletes. There have been thousands of photos/videos to go through and I'm still not done. But they needed to go, half were screen shots, others were video clips I no longer need & then there are just a ton of duplicates. 

#2: Deleting E-Mail - This was one of my resolutions {check back soon for that update} and I wasn't too good at it. But now that we are here I plan to go through my Gmail and mass delete so that I can start 2018 off on the right foot...before it gets out of hand again when I get back to Austin. 

#3: Deleting old files - Now that we are coming to a close of college I finally feel ready to part with some of my old Word, Excel and Powerpoint docs. I have had the same Macbook since freshman year of college and so many unnecessary documents are on the drive. It's time to say Adios to that biology project I did freshman year, don't you think?

#4: New Backgrounds - Typically around this time of year I change my phone lock screen, phone background and laptop background screens to new themes. It seems like the easiest, best way to have a fresh start. I'll be looking at Evelyn Henson, Lilly, Packed Party and a few others to see what I want to have for the start of 2018. 

#5: Resolutions - I am still working on exactly what I want my resolutions to be. I usually keep them fairly open ended so that I can do a lot of different things with them. But we shall see, right now they are basically to live every moment to its fullest because everything is going to change so soon. But those will post on the first of January-ish so check back soon!
