New Year’s Resolution

It is the third day of the new year, and I think I’ve finally decided my resolution for 2011: to take more chances. I know this sounds like the biggest cliché, but I see why it is so popular. Sometime we get too comfortable in our routines and miss out on otherwise unforgettable experiences.

Now that I’m a veteran college student (haha), I think it’s about time for me to cross a few things off my bucket list. For example, my friend and I bought tickets to go skydiving sometime before April, and I cannot wait! I’ve always wanted to go but never actually tried to put the idea into action. Another upcoming experience I count as a chance would be rushing for a sorority. I’m a little nervous now but I’m excited to join a sisterhood and everything it entails. Also, I’ve lived in Nashville for a semester and only attended one concert! One! That is not acceptable to any music lover like me. The funny part is that the concert was a really random band at Exit/In that I watched with a friend who needed a performance attendance credit and we ended up having a great time! This next semester, I’m determined to discover new bands and experience the benefits of living in Music City.

When I do a quick review of the chances I took in the first semester, I’m so grateful I stepped out of my comfort zone. On the third day of school or so, I remember going to breakfast by myself and seeing another girl who was sitting alone so I asked if I could sit with her. We quickly discovered we were actually hallmates who had never met and now she’s my best friend.  2010 really was a great year for me, but there’s no reason 2011 shouldn’t be just as great, especially if I put my resolution into action.
