Happy New Year!

Can anyone actually believe it's 2014? I for one can't, but I also can't say that I'm sorry to bid 2013 goodbye - it wasn't the best year for me (not that it was a terrible one, just a bit average).

As it is a new year, I decided to start a blog just so I can keep track of 2014. I can hardly remember any of the good (although I can remember the bad) things that happened last year (okay, it already feels weird saying that), and not being able to remember the good things in life is never good! So I've decided that this blog will hopefully help me keep track of this year, and there's a few things I want to change...

I suppose you could call them resolutions, so here goes:

1. Get fit.
I know I'm not the fittest person around, so my number one thing I want to change this year is my food intake (more good food, less bad food) and exercise. I have joined a gym here at home just before Christmas, but I want to continue with the exercise routine once I get back to the city for university.

2. Get better grades.
I know probably most of this list will probably be pretty typical things, but I really need to get better grades this year. My grades aren't too terrible, I range from passes to high distinctions, but I really want to increase my GPA as I'm going into my last year of university and will be graduating!

3. Get a job
I've been lucky enough that during university I haven't needed to get a job so far, but this year I want to make an effort to do some part-time/casual work. I've arranged my uni schedule so I can fit in getting a job, it's just a matter of applying and interviewing now!

4. Socialise more.
This one's pretty obvious, I was a bit of a recluse last year with a horrible housemate and hard subjects at uni, but I'm definitely going to make an effort to socialise more this year.

5. Be a nicer person
I like to think I'm a pretty nice person in general, but I need to make an effort to smile more and people and be a bit less judgemental and gossipy.

huge one on my list for this year. I haven't travelled overseas since I was 14, and I haven't stepped foot inside Europe or the UK. Ireland and France are definitely high on my list and I really really really want to get there sometime this year.

I think I'll leave it at this for now. If I think of any more I might add them in at a later date, but for now I think this is a good start!

    I bet I have these resolutions on my list too. Actually, I started this getting fit thing last year and I'm on the middle of it. I'm working hard to make this resolution my birthday present, wich is in April.

    I want to do all these things, and I guess everybody wants to. It's part of being a better person.



    1. Ohh, that's awesome! I wish I started mine earlier.. I attempted to start this time last year but didn't really succeed, it wasn't my best year for anything really! I hope you reach your goal by your birthday!
