  • start a new routine of getting to bed earlier + getting up earlier
  • organize + do artsy stuff in my planner

it's kind of hard to believe that this year is actually over. honestly, I couldn't say it went fast. it happened. a lot of stuff happened and was done. i have some plans for things around here (and brainstorms xD), books to read, things to write, and so many new things to do (you can read all about my end of the year post I did a bit ago here in case you missed it during this busy holiday season xD)  -- basically I'm excited to see what new year holds!
