I’m not a person to make resolutions because I feel like they can be easily broken. I am more of a person that just changes my lifestyle to fit my needs for that time.
This year, I have decided that I would actually write out resolutions and share with you guys…also so you can hold me accountable. I’ll break it up into sections and than add the resolutions under each.
- I will eat healthier.
- I will get into the best shape of my life.
- I will be happy.
- I will help more people.
- I will be a better person, just in general.
- I will continue working on my blog and create engaging content.
- I will reach 10,000+ blog followers for 2017.
- I will become very successful in my career.
- I will love my work.
- I will help people through my job.
- I will finish writing my book.
That’s all I have folks! I know I should have been doing this all along but I’m sticking to these!!!!
Let me know your resolutions and also if I need to add any to mine!
Hey Ya’ll! I have been traveling a little bit, mainly down south. I am now home and super exhausted!
I normally travel alone because I like to do things on my own schedule. Drive where I want and eat where I want. I don’t like to feel obligated to do anything, especially when I travel. This specific getaway, one of my really good friends went with me…this is also the same friend that I traveled to Hawaii with. You can take a look at my older Hawaii post here. This particular friend is my travel buddy for long trips and it works out very well.
Our trip started off good but I’m the type that likes to move in an airport. I like to get where I am going and fast. She on the other hand likes to stop and buy things and talk to people. She strolls slowly through the airport, like we are driving down a scenic countryside. BLAH! I said nothing and let it slide. (Side note: I think Chicago has changed this about me….when in Chicago, keep your head down and walk fast). Carry on.
When we landed in North Carolina and got our rental car, she decides that she needs to drive. Sure…she then decides to take the scenic route…okay. Somehow we end up eating at this hole in the wall, in a town outside of Raleigh. Everything was great until the first batch of food poison hits like a wave. LOL! Its comical now but then, I was hurting and extremely livid. This is why I like to have control…. She may have poisoned me. I’m don’t have full evidence but I’m still developing some theories. After about 6 hours of being sick, I felt okay enough to get in the car, armed with ginger ale, saltines, and a very stern look.
The rest of the trip, I am very suspicious of anything and everything we did. Although, I was very alert, I still received; a sprained ankle, jellyfish sting on my leg, and brief loss of vision (due to losing my contact lenses).
I could literally write a novel about this trip…and I just might. I’m not sure if it’s me getting older and I need to have absolute control or I’m just lame. Either way, I do not travel well with others.
Ever heard of the infamous Garrett’s Popcorn in Chicago?! If you haven’t, then you are missing out on life. Established in 1949, Garrett’s Popcorn has been a staple of Chicago. They offer multiple popcorn flavors; which include cheesecorn, caramelcrisp, and buttery. The original flavor and my personal favorite is the Garrett Mix. This mix combines CaramelCrisp with CheeseCorn for a awesome explosion of your taste buds!
Think it sounds gross? I thought the same thing until I popped a handful in my mouth. It is by far the perfect popcorn mix you will ever eat. I know I sound like an advertisement for Garrett’s but I can tell you, I am not and the food speaks for itself. There is a list of southern foods that I like way better than the Midwest versions but this popcorn is not one of them! If you are in Chicago, try it! You will not be disappointed! When you’re there, tell them Taylor sent you. They’ll probably look at you like you’re crazy and ask “who the hell is Taylor?” It’ll be funny either way.
