Resolutely

9 Jan

Hi lovelies!

Happy 2016!

I’ve always found myself to be the worst at resolutions. But not even out loud ones. In my head, quiet, secret ones still aren’t followed through with.

So ‘beginning of the year’ posts about resolutions always make me anxious, for the people making such huge promises to themselves, and for me, because they just remind me that I’m bad at keeping my little personal promises.

So I’m going to go with some general ‘I would like to’ statements. If that’s ok.

I would like to…listen to music more

As a teenager, especially at school, I spent most of my time listening to or making music. I’m not sure, but I think if you’re a music person, you need it in your life or it starts to affect you on a day to day basis. If I don’t listen to any music in a week, I get all grumpy and horrid and moody. And all it takes to fix it is an hour alone with my headphones and a great playlist. So, more music.

I would like to…stop buying so many beauty products

I am a total beauty junkie, but I think I need to prove to myself that I don’t need to buy products to enjoy makeup. Plus, I don’t have enough money to be a shopaholic. I added up approximately how much I spent on beauty products in 2015 and the result was not pretty. I nearly cried. So, less spending.

I would like to…work hard

This is a weird one, but I am a workaholic. I love working and earning my own money, because no-one can tell you how to spend that money. And I’m a firm believer in the idea that if you work hard, then someone will notice and it will pay off in the end. So, more work, and more good work.

I would like to…write more

I’m not sure what this means, to be honest. I haven’t got an awful lot of belief in myself when it comes to my writing, but I’m gonna give it a go. More blog posts, more TV stuff, and maybe I’ll get around to writing down the idea that’s been floating in my head for years now.

I would like to…graduate

It’s my final year of Uni! I have approximately six months left. And I started this blog just before my first year of Uni started. It’s all very full circle. I’ve had such a weird time at Uni, and I can’t say I’ve loved it. I wish I’d chosen a different subject, a different place maybe. But I am proud of myself for passing everything, living alone in a foreign country for nine months, and I’ve met some wonderful people. So, let’s finish it off.

I’m pretty sure that 2015 was my best year yet. I grew so much as a person on my year abroad, I challenged myself over the summer at a horrible job, learned more, made some rough decisions, worked hard and laughed. A lot. Thanks for sticking around on this little inconsistent mish-mash of a blog. I really appreciate it.
