Well it’s been almost a month since I have blogged (oops!) and I’m finding it extremely difficult to get back into the swing of things in almost every aspect of my life. That being said, I am back to uni now and that gives me all sorts of things to write (complain!) about. Last year I did my first ever Proper New Years Resolution list and I am going to see if I completed any of them at all.
1.) Lose more weight – Beach bod! I recently bought this bikini and it WILL look good!
Ok so I didn’t lose more weight, but I DID maintain my weight and I am getting back on the wagon.
2.) Do a photo shoot a month! Self explanatory really!
Again, this lasted up until June, where I started a part time job and got really busy, but I’m proud of the shoots I did and it all goes towards my portfolio.
3.) Go out once a month. I never know when to have a break from work and just have fun!
Let’s be honest, I have had a rubbish year and I struggled to find friends at uni around Easter this year. However in desperate times I definitely remembered to go out for dinner and try to let my hair down a bit.
4.) Stay Organised /Write everything down
This makes me laugh because when / if my boyfriend reads this then he will say I have completely taken this to the extreme. But I don’t care. I love it and it keeps me on track –
5.) Be good with money – STAY AWAY FROM EBAY
Haha, this never ever happened. BUT – by the end of the academic year I still had money (unlike the previous year). I also got a part time job and have had to get used to living on a monthly wage.
6.)Be happy & positive
You know what? Since I have moved home I have been so much happier and better within myself. I still struggle to find any positive things about uni work – except it’s nearly all over!
7.) Plan my 21st – Disney on firework night anyone? 😛
Well…you can read about my 21st here, best week of my life. I had a lovely meal with my family too, and a rather unplanned evening with my friends, but hey you can’t have it all!
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED BEYOND MY WILDEST DREAMS!
8.) Go to exhibitions – I don’t always enjoy them but I need to !
I have been to a few, and popped in when I have seen them on my travels.
9.) Calm down
hahahahah. I don’t think I’ll ever change.
10.) Enter more competitions
I entered a fair few for my course and I’m really proud that I got No. 13 out of around 250 contestants in a competition to photograph Ellie Goulding.
So I have managed to do 5/10 of my resolutions and to be honest I just don’t think that is too shabby! I am really proud and I can’t wait to write another list. Any of the ones I didn’t complete or almost completed I will carry over to the next list if I feel that they apply to me in the coming year.
Happy New Year everyone!
