You've probably read this on everyone's first blog post of 2016 and heard it from everyone but happy new year! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year, and that it was everything you had wished for and more. Hm, my primary school teachers were right - I need to learn to use the word 'and' more. I had what I think was the best New Years Eve I've ever head! I headed out for food with friends, before making our way to Trafalgar Square to catch a glimpse of the fireworks, and then to Joe's Bar Covent Garden (if you're ever around, you have to go!). I think we eventually stumbled in around 5am, but it was so nice to ring in 2016 with some of my favourite people. I ended up completely living in the moment and only taking a few photos with people I don't actually know!
I don't know how I feel about new years resolutions. No one sticks to them and then everyone gets angry at themselves which, considering most peoples' goals are to be happier, is quite ironic. I prefer to set myself goals and hopes. I hope to continue to be just as happy as I am now, travel more, continue to work hard and to make sure that I keep in contact with the people that mean the most to me. Oh, and to probably drink more water and exercise more, but I think that's what everyone says! Come August, I will have to decide on whether or not I actually plan on starting university this year. I should technically be starting my third year of university in September, yet I haven't even completed one. This fact used to bother me, but 2015 was the year that not everyone has to go to university. I know that one day I want to go, as I hope to study Medicine or Law, but I don't have to go straight away - I have time. I want to take the time to figure out what my true passion is and what I want to study before throwing myself in to something and, until I do, I'm happy just doing what I'm doing. I'll do what I want and not let other people's opinions change my own.
Blog wise, I plan on posting three times a week; Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. I tend to be very spontaneous and laid back in everyday life so if I don't end up posting that much, or not posting at all for a few weeks, then that's okay. One thing I should probably work on in 2016 though is being a bit more organised...
And that's it! Here's a healthy and happy 2016.
I hope it's a great year for us all.
Do you have any goals or hopes?
