Your 16 New Year Resolutions

  1. Work hard at the hospitals so you can learn the most of medicine during your last year and a half you have left.
  2. Understand that graduating Magna Cum Laude is a good thing, but not the most important thing in life. Try to study hard and give the best you got, but also take the time to have fun and enjoy the moment.
  3. Stay close to your family since there’s not much time left until you eventually move out.
  4. Take the next step with him. Engaged much?
  5. Stay true to the saying “A year older, a year wiser”. Try to understand all your mistakes and defects so you can grow into a better person with a lot more experience and knowledge on life.
  6. Time to be an adult…for good! Yeah, you’re in Med school and your parents still maintain your ass but it’s time to start covering some bills on your own.
  7. Work out. I know you’re genetically made thin and difficult to gain weight, but you’re starting to get some cellulite on your behind and that isn’t gonna look good on a wedding dress. Ok, Ok! At least wait for that new gym they’re gonna finish 2 blocks from your house.
  8. Regain your old friends. The lookout for new friends have been difficult on you for the past couple years; it’s time to get in contact with those who’ve always had your back since the beginning.
  9. Be a pro-makeup artist…at least for yourself. Makeup is a hidden passion you’ve had for so many years, it’s time to make it concrete.
  10. Start saving. You have so many plans for the future that they eventually need money. Save at least 2 dollars a day, you’ll thank me next year.
  11. Time to reunite the family. It’s time for the Rosario and Ramirez family to get to know each other; and you have to make it possible.
  12. Go out and discover. You’re only young once and it’s time for unexpected adventures and backpacking journeys to break the daily routine from killing you slowly into a monotonous death.
  13. It’s time to change that wardrobe. Those teenage t-shirts are a little bit old for you. I’m not saying you’re old, I’m saying that you’re more “mature” so you need to dress like it.
  14. Start giving. You always like to help others out but you think you don’t have the time to do it at a larger scale. It’s time to contribute, especially in what you’re good at: Teaching.
  15. Do Freelance. I know you don’t have time for a 9 to 5 job because you’re still in Med School, but you’ve always been wanting to do something on the side for that extra money. Don’t be afraid of time, you’ll have plenty.
  16. Continue being yourself. All of your friends describe you as a genuine, original and rather out-of-this-earth person. Remember that good things should be kept within
