I made up with old man after about 2 years only there a half an hour ago or so. I'll continue on as such, I guess.

And I'm gonna take a few classes and go to college.

I've been avoiding reading the Qur'an... I'm both curious and scared that I could lose my faith by doing so- based on what others have told me... But I spoke to Pots recently, and I started back- this time, I'll finish it.

I know a lot of people who've read the Qur'an back to front many times- and like my family are bigots. I showed them the video where the world was flipped and everyone was homosexual, with few being heteros, and one of my cousins said 'ew' and walked away immediately. My dad said that the attempt at reverse psychology was pathetic. Basically they ignored the bullying of a CHILD and focused on 'gay is wrong' blah de blah.
Ajab was once like that, and my family is as well. They say in the Qur'an it specifically states that homosexuality is forbidden. I cannot isolate homosexuals- it's not my nature. But if the Qur'an says otherwise, and I forbid it, that could mean me 'forsaking my faith,' which I cannot do as well...
Since I was little, I've been going to mosque and muqtab... I can't lose my faith again...

I think those are generally most people's resolutions. At least for me. Honestly I work hard for something I want, I'm pretty determined. It's the small things that bother me, such as:
- Swearing, I stopped swearing for over a year and then idk what happened to me.(only when I'm angry though). So I need to stop that.
- I need to be more patient as well, because sometimes I get way too heated way too easily. My problem is that I have patience when it comes to bigger things but when it comes to smaller things I don't much, which I can't comprehend.
- I need to be more charitable in different ways. Last week I decided to donate blood every two months (bc that is how often you can do so) for the rest of my life, and so I went. However I was not eligible because one must at least weigh 110, but for me, a female at 4'9", I must weigh 150........... so it's impossible for me to ever donate blood which really upset me.
-Working out..I really need to be more active because my body's not going to change itself.
-Health. I will start eatin healthier. I've been trying to eat healthy the past year and I have been doing okay so far. I've quit soda, fast food, I limit my junk food and coffee, etc. One can never be too healthy.
-I need to give more time to others and to myself. Like esocial said, be a better Muslim. Pray more and read the Qur'an more, more so memorize.
-I need to be a better role model to those who look up to me, siblings, friends, other kids. If people are going to look up to me than I need to better myself in order to have such a greater impact on them.

So I guess those are my main resolutions.... I believe even the smallest thing can go a long way.

I respect anyone who sticks with what they've decided to change for New Year's, even when it gets tough and they need to build up will power in order to continue. However, many people make a goal for New Year's (e.g. quitting smoking, going to the gym), only to break it during that month and wait until next year to attempt again. That is a *bad* strategy. The best time to better yourself is always NOW.

My resolution is to continue what I've been doing:
1. Go to the gym to do heavy, compound lifts; eating healthy and sleeping in a dark room a lot to recover.
2. Approach the hottest girls I can find and take the interaction as far as possible.
3. Make people feel good throughout the day by making small talk, compliments, smiling.
4. Build a multi-million dollar business within two years.
5. Read every night.

I don't have any plans to change anything for New Year's.

Finish reading Christopher Dawson's body of work, increase my knowledge of Chinese history and geopolitics, and finish paying off my loans.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

1. Exercise more. Being fit one day is a dream of mine lol.

2. Get outside more and explore (hike, travel etc.).

3. Join an after school club and STICK with it.

4. Volunteer for many reasons: for the experiences, for the work ethic, possibky to help those who need it, and it diesn't hurt that itlooks good on apps (I'm assuming, lol).

5. Be a bit more extroverted. Maybe I'll start to like having friends, lol. Get closer with my friends, I guess. Appreciate the few that I have. Try to get more through clubs and stuff, and only get into friendships I genuinely want to be in, etc.

VI. Learn as I live life. Become wiser. Gain knowledge/become more intelligent.

7. Stress a bit less, enjoy my teenage years more.

8. Build my self-esteem.

9. Try to make the right choices regarding my high school plan. (I have the option to go to community college two years early, but don't know if I'm ready. How many AP classes is too much. Is AVID worth it despite me hating it etc., etc.).

10. Figure out my life ambitions and sort them out. I want to know my truest passion. I have no idea what I want to do with my life yet, and want to know. This ties into my worrying too much, lol.

The list is endless. I doubt anyone cares, but I gotta write it somewhere and check it come New Years 2016 and see if I did well. With this many goals, I'm sure I'll achieve at least one :).

My New Year's resolution is to break my New Year's resolution. O.o
To all the people fighting a hard battle out there - life's giving you a pretty hard beating. There's no sugarcoating that, but there's no shadow that's free of light. When life sneers at you and asks, "Ready to go again?" - Raise your hand. Reach out to victory. Don't give in.

If you enjoy the process of exercise, the goal of 'being fit' will be an afterthought. If you're overweight, realize that exercise is only 20% of fat loss; the rest is diet; check out http://www.reddit.com... and http://www.reddit.com... for advice on diet that's scientifically backed. Basically you're going to cut out all added sugar, white flour, junk food, sodas, juice; fructose actually affects the way your hunger hormone functions, making you feel like you're always hungry, Go for organic, locally grown/raised, and grass fed whole foods (not the store, but the food). Focus on getting a lot of vegetables, high quality meats, and saturated fats like grass fed butter, coconut oil, and olive oil (they don't make you fat, excess fructose and excess calories do).

The best nutrition sites are www.authoritynutrition.com and http://www.marksdailyapple.com...

Good luck!

2. Get outside more and explore (hike, travel etc.).

This is really important. Being in nature helps you discover and accept yourself in a primal, grounded way.

8. Build my self-esteem.
