As all of you may already know by experience, summer is a perfect oportunity to reflect on ourselves and think about all those things we'd like to change to improve as human beings and more specifically, as students. Everything seems to be perfect when planned out, but it's no mistery the fact that the promises made before the new school year are rarely fulfilled.

That's exactly why i stopped making a list a few years ago. But i expect this year to be different, not because i'm feeling more optimistic or anything, but because as you may have seen on my previous article (i'm leaving the link below) i will be studying abroad in Seoul starting this september!

Also i have to say that i haven't been feeling very well this past academic year so, besides the fact that i'll be studying abroad i'll also use that as an "excuse" to make this list, hoping not to feel like sh*t by june once again. With all of this, these are my 10 resolutions for the upcoming academic year:

โถ ๐’˜๐’‚๐’Œ๐’Š๐’๐’ˆ ๐’–๐’‘ ๐’†๐’‚๐’“๐’๐’š ๐’†๐’—๐’†๐’“๐’š๐’…๐’‚๐’š

ยป I already consider myself to be an early bird. However, last year i discovered that waking up earlier than usual and taking my time doing things such as taking a shower, preparing breakfast and eating while watching a tv show made me feel more energized and happy during the day. That's why i decided to start waking up earlier than usual this year, so i can feel better in my daily-life.

it may be hard sometimes but it's totally worth it

ยป The thing is my skin is really fair so i always avoided wearing white-colored clothes. But not long ago i started asking myself "does it really matter what others think or say?", and from that moment on i started wearing colors i never even thought of wearing. I really want to keep expanding my horizons not only trying new colors but also new styles, as i can feel how it's making me feel more confident and closer to my true self.

ยป My hair used to be super long until like 2 years ago. That's when i felt like trying something new and decided to cut it short, and i don't really regret that decision! Actually, i still really like my hair short. Nevertheless, now i got really curious about how i'd look now that i changed not only my bangs but also the way i percieve myself.

ยป With this i don't mean a bullet journal, as i already tried and found out it's not really my thing lol. For some reason i have the need to write from time to time, but i don't really have a journal at the moment, so i'd really like to buy one, carry it everywhere with me and use it whenever i need it.

ยป Throughout my life i never really had someone to trust and tell everything about myself. However, last year i found myself being part of a group of friends and i realised i didn't even know how to treat them nor how to respond to their affection. That really made me reconsider many things, and i came to the conclusion that i needed to get out of my comfort zone so other people could trust me. This year that i'll be far from these friends, i don't want to loose them.

ยป For the same reason that i mentioned before, i got used to staying at home alone. Nevertheless, during the past few years i started meeting my friends often and i realised it made me feel fullfilled and happy.Even on those days that i felt like not going out, if i met my friends i ended up feeling great. That's why this year i want to keep myself occupied and not be lazy, because sometimes doing more things give you more energy.

even if it's studying with someone at the library, going for a walk or meeting up and drinking a coffee, it really makes a difference

ยป We all know how it feels not to be able to enjoy a good book during the academic year. However, i intend to read more often, even if it's on weekends. It's also an activity that will make me occupied and fullfilled.

ยป There aren't many oportunities to find a part-time job here, also i usually have classes in the morning and the evening, and that makes it imposible. But this time i'll have more free time and i really need to make some money so i'd really like to find a part-time job, not only because of the money but also because of the oportunity of practicing the language the best (and also hard) way possible.

ยป It may sound weird, i know. however, going out of home and doing normal things such as shopping or going to the library can turn into a really difficult task for someone with anxiety. Still, now i realised how much it affects my life and i really want to try and change that even if it's just a little bit so i can enjoy my experience as an exchange student to the fullest.

ยป Sometimes it seems to me like everyone around me knows what they like, who they are and what they want to do with their lives, and i really admire that because most of the time i have no idea of what i'm doing or who i am. That's why i want to work more on that, even write it down and make a list if it's necessary.
