Beauty Sleep

The next lifestyle change I want to work on (and this is something every human should do!) is getting the right amount of sleep every night.

As you probably already know, adults need about 7-8 hours of sleep every night on a regular schedule. I'm thinking a pretty decent schedule I can keep is 11pm-7am. However, I'm a hypocrite because as I write this right now it is 1:06am. :P

My goal is to make this a lifestyle change. That means no going back, and neither should you!

As an update from my earlier post, I finished the book. It was fantastic. I was supposed to only read one chapter a night, but I spent the entire day Friday reading until I finished the whole thing. Oops. But it was so good I couldn't put it down! Next I'm going to read the Hunger Games series!

I Pledge to Read the Printed Word

There's something about a physical, printed book with paper pages and ink. It has a welcoming scent and comforting feel. Ever since I can remember, I've loved stories and reading.

Sadly, I've fallen away from my normal reading routine where I end every night with a chapter from a new or favorite book. My desire is to go back to that. My first book in attempt to become an avid reader again will be "The City of Ember."

Personal Posts

I want to be successful in the sense that I can become exactly who I want to be. This post is about who I want to become -- what I strive for today. And I think the following posts will each be about a different part of who I want to be.

So today's post is about myself in general. I need to make a big change, because I don't like myself right now. I'm too introverted. Being introverted is not bad, but being TOO introverted is. I need to find a nice balance in life where I can enjoy the presence of others as well. Also, I need to take more initiative, have more energy and passion, and seek motivation and inspiration. These are the terms of my overall goal. And I want to be all these things in time for summer.

So here goes all I have!!!
