Happy New Year!!!!
I've never been one for New Years resolutions because if I'm honest, I break them within a week. I don't like rules.......they're there to be broken :P
I do, however, like to make a list of things I'd like to accomplish in the new year. Just small things that matter to me, nothing too major and things I know that I can do.
So, my 14 things for 2014 are as follows:
1 - Start driving lessons. The thought actually terrifies me, but if I can drive then I can have more adventures!
2 - Go to Edinburgh zoo. Believe it or not, I've never been!!
3 - Get a job I actually love and enjoy. Since leaving school, I've basically started a new job to get out of the previous and hated every single one. Life is too short to do things that make you unhappy DONE
4 - Travel somewhere first class. This is something I've wanted to do for so long now, 2014 is the year to make it happen
5 - Learn an instrument. I used to play the guitar and recorder in primary school, but stopped when I went into secondary school. Music is a great thing, time to learn the drums.....or piano.....or triangle?
6 - Start my make up freelancing. I completed a make up course in 2011, with every intention of becomming a freelance MUA. However I have a habit of telling myself I'm pants at things and knocked my own confidence. Time to get back on that horse *Yeeeeehaaaaa*
7 - Take a midnight swim (and try not to get arrested) in a bikini obviously! Such a random thing to add, but I'm a pretty random person
8 - Have at least 2 holidays abroad. My cousin and I are going to Paris at the end of the month for my Birthday and are planning on doing a Europe trip later on in the year
9 - Adopt an animal. If I had the money, I'd have an animal sanctuary but I'm skint so I shall settle for adopting a tiger or donkey or elephant?
10 - Try new food and drinks. Every time I go to bars/resturants/coffee shops I order the same things. Time to tickle those taste buds
11 - Go to a festival. There's talk of the Leeds festival this year, more camping in a field full of strangers.......fun times!!!!
12 - Give YouTube a bash. I'm not sure what kinds of videos I want to do yet, but I might try my hand at vlogging whilst in Paris.....if I can figure out how to edit.....
13 - Say yes to more things. Again, I'm one (not so much now) for talking myself out of things and then always think I should have said yes. So this tear, there shall be no no's ;)
14 - Start swimming at least twice a week. All throughout 2013 I've eaten pretty healthy - cutting out junk food and fizzy drinks, so this year I want to start regular exercise. I HATE the gym because I get so bored, so I've decided to start swimming again. Let's get toned!!
Do you make a list? Or are you one for making resolutions?
