Not sure this photo relates but I don’t have another one to use so here you go!
It’s that time of year again… the time we start thinking about the changes we are going to make in the New Year. The foods we are going to stop eating and which gym we’ll join for our everyday workouts we have planned out in our heads, haha! No but seriously, I have to get my arse in to gear if I’m going to make the most of 2018. I mean, for me 2017 was a good year but I’m hoping that this next year is going to be great! And here’s a number of things I plan on doing in 2018… Ready?
Numero uno… Make more YouTube videos! I watch YouTube more than I watch television and I love watching 10 minute vlog’s of someone else’s every day to day life. Most of them lead much more interesting lives than I do and I’m not sure anyone would truly enjoy all my videos but I’m going to do them anyway. My first one for 2018 will be ’30 thing’s before 30′. Samantha Maria is a YouTuber and Blogger I watch often and she did recently did a little video on 30 things she’d like to see/do before she turns 30, you can watch that here. I thought it would be a good video to film and will give me lots to talk about! I’m currently putting my list together for that, although there’s like a million and one things I’d like to do before then so I’ll pick my absolute favourites for that!
Two, take more photos. And I don’t mean crappy ones of my tea and toast on a Saturday morning (as much as I like doing so…) I mean real good photographs, shot with my camera on manual. Basically, I have to swot up on the basic photography skills and then progress further than an amateur photographer. I’ve been looking through some of my Grandad’s old film photograph’s and I kind of wish I had a film camera. Maybe I’ll look in to that in the New Year too!
Drink less alcohol. I think this year I’ve proved to myself that I don’t need alcohol to have a good time. I kind of relied on having a drink so I wouldn’t behave like my socially awkward self around people I didn’t know but I think I’m slowly becoming a little more confident in myself *hooray!* and I’m willing to swap a Gin & Tonic for a orange juice a little easier than previous years.
I managed to summit 5 of some the most popular mountains in England this year and I honestly don’t know why it has taken me this long to get in to walking. It’s an indescribable feeling being so high up with views so breathtaking. For 2018 I plan on summiting a whole load more so please, if you know of any mountains you think I might like, leave me a comment, tweet me, message me, I’d love to hear you recommendations!
And last but certainly not least, I really want to get back to being more creative and focusing more on what I’m really passionate about. It’s very difficult for me to focus on drawing and things like that without like minded people around me but I’m not going to let that stop me anymore. I’d like to get back to college part-time and learn more about graphic design.
What are your New Year resolutions?
