Jade's Envelope

I think I talked about that feeling you get when you want to shout "Eureka! Eureka!" before in one of my oldest posts, titled Dream House. If you want to get the gist of it, you should go to June, and it should be there.
...But anyway...
I got that feeling again, that spark of inspiration, actually, when I was turning on my computer. So here I go.
People always talk about New Year's Resolutions, and how they would like to make a major impact on their lives during this year (like always). But, be real with me, how many things do you actually accomplish in the course of one year? I mean, those goals? *Crickets* Yeah. That's what I thought. So why not record those so-called etched in stone goals of yours?
That's what I'm going to do this year, hence the title. Here's the rules that I'm going to set for myself:Write your goals on scraps of paper, inspiration, and anything else that comes to mind.
No peeking at your old scraps of paper till next year! 2012 (ooooh, Dooms Day, ha, yeah right).
Try to accomplish as many of your goals as possible.
Write a note to yourself every month, the little bits of info, like, favorite song at the moment, obsessions, stuff like that.
And that's it.

I might post pictures of this soon. It's a work in progress, I guess.

*ALSO* A must-read book is "Loser/Queen" by Jodi Lynn Anderson. Just trust me on this. Don't even read the back. Just buy it. Sad, but soooo good. That's all.


  1. Cool idea! That's quite creative, good luck with it!

    <3 <3

  2. that is so clever! I'm definetely going to do that! thanks for the great idea!

  3. Wonderfull idea! I'm not a big fan of New Year's Resolutions I think that if I wanna change something it starts with yourself not witg a new year. With love

  4. some people get so freaked when you ask them what their resolutions are. they think they're already perfect people and don't need to change. does this not mean that they need to change their ego?

  5. That is a genius idea!! And I am definitely going to try!! It sounds absolutely amazing!!
    Good Luck with it!!

  6. Oooh post about it! I'm all for keepsakes and memories! I actually have a memory box...but I haven't put anything in it as of late...this post got me thinking about it! Thanks :)
    And good luck! I might try this!

  7. Hmm..I just might do this! :)
