Marilyn Monroe’s New Year’s resolution list has been found from 1955. According to the New York Daily News, the voluptuous Marilyn Monroe was thinking ahead when she wrote down goals that she planned to accomplish for that year.
With careful forethought, Monroe decided that she wanted to become a better actress, and was serious about perfecting her craft. Her 1955 scribblings include goals of attending private acting classes and studio sessions when she could. The sexy vixen also intended to attend lectures and keep her body in shape by exercising, but more importantly, she made a note to observe everyone and everything around her — including herself.
A current transcript detailing Marilyn Monroe’s intentions for the 1955 New Year has been provided by Lists Of Note — misspellings included.

At her prime, Marilyn Monroe was never taken seriously as an actress beyond the “blonde bimbo” type of roles, which was extremely distressing for her already-fragile mental condition. Very few people knew the real Marilyn Monroe, the deep thinker who was always striving to improve herself, and who thought a lot about the world around her.
The lack of the internet and speedy access to celebrities made it difficult for anyone to know such intimate details about their favorite Hollywood stars, including Marilyn Monroe. Today, many appreciate what she contributed to American culture. All of these years later, Marilyn Monroe continues to have a cult following on all social media websites, which show rare photos of the beautiful Monroe, along with many of her inspirational and insightful quotes. Earlier this month, the Inquisitr reported on the auctioning of Joe DiMaggio’s love letter to Marilyn Monroe.
