The Vampire Diaries’ resident vampire barbie Caroline Forbes (Candice Accola) is an obsessive planner. In fact, she probably already has her New Year’s resolutions outlined, prioritized, and has drafted a timeline for their implementation. We’re here to add to the effort! Here are five New Year’s resolutions we think Caroline should make.

Find closure with Tyler

Even though Caroline and Tyler have officially called it quits, things between them still feel weirdly unfinished. We don’t think they should get back together, but they should definitely have a chat. We know getting over an ex is easier said than done especially when you considered him the love of your life but we hope Caroline finds a way to do just that in the New Year.

Find some new friends

It’s not that we don’t already love Caroline’s current friends check out our list of the best Steroline moments, for example but that doesn’t mean we don’t think Caroline shouldn’t make some new ones. College is about growing and redefining yourself, and that’s hard to do when you hang out with all of the same people you grew up with. We’d love to see Caroline find some Whitmore friends outside of her Mystic Falls circle.

Pick a major

Out of all the TVDers, Caroline would probably get our vote for “Most Likely to Succeed.” She’s smart, driven, and doesn’t take no for an answer. We’d love to see those qualities funneled into a future outside of her social circle, i.e. an interest in the college academic community. Just because she’s a vampire, doesn’t mean she can’t also be a rocket scientist.

Travel the world

On that note, Caroline has expressed an interest in getting outside of the Mystic Falls bubble to see the world, and we think she should! Matt got to tour Europe over the summer, why not Caroline? She could go with besties Elena and Bonnie or even take a backpacking trip solo. With the power of compulsion, the world is her oyster.

Visit Klaus

OK, this one may be more for our benefit than for Caroline’s, but we’re dying for Caroline to visit Klaus in the Big Easy even if it is on strictly platonic terms (we’ll take what we can get). She’s got a free place to stay and an Original hybrid tour guide with excellent bone structure at her command. We would have been there months ago.

What do you think Caroline’s resolutions for the new year should be? Sound off in the comments below!
