2018 New Year Resolutions

No comments



Hey everyone, it's me, your girl, back with a few 2018 resolutions. 

TAKE CARE OF MYSELF

Yeah, you've heard this one on every damn blog out there. In 2017, i conquered looking after my head, I learnt to say 'no' to work, friends, and pressure where I needed to be alone. I pushed past some MAJOR mental barriers in my life like being able to talk to new people way more easily and getting over my lifelong phobia of escalators, but this year it's different. 2018 is the year of the body. I might look after my mind but I treat my body like RUBBISH. I eat CRAP 24/7. Not even exaggerating I have chocolate for breakfast at least 3 days a week. This year I'm focussing on keeping my health in check. 
Not only that, but I want to make sure I'm taking good care of my skin, my hair and not just throwing on the same unflattering outfit 7 days a week. I want to love myself!! 

READ MORE

Okay so I do an English degree but man I just never read. I do an English Language degree that doesn't require any proper book reading like a literature degree does so this means I totally neglect reading. I'm super lucky to have been gifted 8 books for Christmas this year so uhh, no excuses I guess!

FINISH SECOND YEAR WITH A FIRST

Last year I was lucky enough to finish first year at UOB studying English Language and Literature and achieve 67% (a 2:1). I've since moved over to a straight English Language degree so there's some aspect of 'catching up' with those who've done this from the start, but I'm trying my best so far and I'd reaaaally like to bump my 67 up to a 70 this year!! Best get my head down. 

PUT MYSELF OUT THERE EVEN WHEN I DON'T WANT TO

Okay, so even right now my anxiety is telling me not to write this blog post, not to publish it, and sure as hell not to share it. I've struggled with this for a really long time, writing posts to nobody and cowering away from things I really want to do out of pure WORRY.
