1. Be Happy
Both physically and mentally. I want to learn to be more optimistic about situations and feel confident in the decisions that I make. I want to push myself this year to be in that place.
2. Be Healthy
Again, both physically and mentally. I’ve entered 2016 single and I know it’s the best place to be now; I’m out of a bad situation but life can only get better. I want to change how I see food too ~ i.e. not as comfort ~ .
3. Join The Gym
…which ties in nicely with the first 2 points! 2 years ago I was going to the gym daily and taking classes, and I want to get back to that place!
4. Book A Driving Lesson
I need to stop being a wimp basically and book a lesson. All of the jobs I’ve looked at, a license and car is a necessity, so I need to stop relying on public transport ~ and the rents ~ and learn to drive.
5. Go Travelling
I said this last year, but I’d really love to go travelling. I’ve seen people come back from it with a more positive attitude and with experiences, and I feel like that’s something that could help me. But when I say travelling… I’ll stick to Europe for now. Won’t see me roughing it back packing! ~ I like my home comforts ~ .
6. Go On A Girly Holiday
I really want to go on some girly weekends away this year, like mini breaks abroad or even local breaks, to spas etc.
7. Do Work Experience Placements / An Internship
As much as I love the people I work with, I don’t want to be in retail forever. I have an NCTJ journalism qualification which I’d like to put to good use, so I’d love to find PR/Comms/Digital Media work exp. placements to get a taster of working in that field.
8. Find A Hobby
When people ask me what I do in my spare time or hobbies that I like doing – I freeze. When I’m not at work I’m at Spoons or Costa, (classy gal right here) so I want to find hobbies. Whether that’s reading more, watching more films, taking photography more seriously or volunteering.
9. Go To More Blogging Events
I backed out of a few blogging events last year because of work and being worried to go alone. But that needs to stop this year! I need to stop using work as an excuse, – because lets face it, I would happily go to all these London events if I didn’t have work at 6am the next morning – and I need to be more independent.
10. Save Money
I said this last year but I’d like to save a set amount of money each month and then treat myself to something big at the end of the year. But will that actually happen this year? Fingers crossed.
11. Do More In The Summer
This year, I want to go to a music festival, and just generally enjoy the summer with friends.
12. See A Musical
I saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory the Musical this year and flipping loved it. I’d love to see another this year! Any recommendations?
13. Go To A Spa
I’d love to go for a weekend spa trip with my Mumma C. I’ve never had either, but I really fancy a massage or a head massage.
14. Walk Over The 02
Because why not? The views look incred, especially at sunset.
15. Make Plans For My 21st
I feel like 19 & 20 are limbo ages. Nothing really special happens and not much seems to be expected of you. I feel like 21 is where it all begins! I’d love to go to NYC or Santorini for a girly mid week break with my Mumma C.
