New Year's Resolutions + Gifs

With the end of December brings New Year's Eve and with New Year's Eve brings up the topic of New Year's Resolutions.

I always struggle with New Year's Resolutions. I always start off really good; I'm excited as heck to get started.

Then reality hits after maybe two weeks.

Can I really read a book every three days!?? Can I really exercise three times a week?! Eat healthier everyday?!!!
Then I assure myself I can.

Then life gets in the way.

It's always a constant battle with myself to complete New Year's Resolutions. But guess what? I still love having New Year's Resolutions. They always challenge me to be better. Be a happier person, overall. Even if I don't always meet my goals.

So, I'm still challenging myself to read 105 books in 2015. I'm still challenging myself to eat healthier, exercise regularly, and blogging at least twice a week. And it will be completely ok if I don't.

105 Challenge!

"waves hello" Again, it's been awhile! School always happens though...

(Nori from ReadWriteLove28 takes complete credit for this challenge!) I'm sure alot of you are curious to know what the 105 Challenge is, so I'll get right down to it. The 105 Challenge is basically a challenge where I'm going to try to read 105 books during 2015.

I know! Insane! Well, then I'm sure there's a couple of you like....

Okay, why 105 books? We have 12 months in a year, obviously, and further and further in the year you will gradually get less and less required books to read. So for example, in January you could read 12 books and December you could read 1 book. You can mix it up, as I know how much busier some months are than others. However, there is another catch. You have categories to challenge yourself even farther!

My categories:

"One" adult epic book(if you have any idea how big most of these books are, you understand)
"Two" young adult stand-alones
"Three" books to read(or reread) in a trilogy
"Four" winter-themed books
"Five" young adult historical books
"Six" debut books
"Seven" young adult contemporaries
"Eight" futuristic books(dystopian and such)
"Nine" 2015 releases
"Ten" ARC's or E-ARC's
"Eleven" fantasy books(any age range)
"Twelve" 2014 releases(I still have so many books to read from this year!)

And there you have it! I encourage everyone to challenge themselves as well! If you do join, send me a link to your post! You can read more about the challenge here.
