It's Been One Week Since You Looked At Me...

Welcome back, readers! *insert an mp3 of Welcome Back by Mase playing in the background*
I suppose I can say "welcome back" to myself as well. I decided for the first time to take an intentional break from my blog. Couturing and I have been one in the same for more than two years now, with a few short breaks here and there. But as my life has taken many confusing turns over the past month...well you know the deal.
I'm not writing this to say that I'm "back in action" (or however else I can put that without sounding like an 80s superhero movie trailer). I am, however, saying that this is a new year. A new year where I've decided to take a semester off from school, a new year where I've decided to make strides toward what I want to do and not what I "have to" do.
I personally believe that New Year's resolutions are self-defeating prophecies, so I don't set them. But if I were to resolve to do something this year, it would be to create a better place for myself in my life. I can't quite verbalize what that will mean yet, but overall I want to feel better.
ANYWAY, enough with the talk. I thought you all might like to know what I've been up to:

I decided to give my room a makeover! It's actually not completely finished -- the long-awaited room tour is on its way -- but I'm very into it. I haven't changed my room up in literal years. I guess you can say I've gotten sick of living in a 15 year old's room.
Christmas 2013 was actually my first "real" Christmas. With a Christmas tree and presents and decoration and the whole shebang.
Once again, I brought in the New Year with some really awesome friends (and a black light). I took an ungodly amount of pictures, but these are a few of my favorites.

What are your New Year's not-resolutions?
