2013 New Year Resolutions . . .

 . . .So 2012 has flown by (where did it go?), and for the past 2-3days I have been rethinking about things that have happened over the past 12months. There are things I am happy about (getting a job), and some things I just think why (dating a twat with the name Simondo). But anyway . .there are so many things I want to do/improve/change in 2013 so I thought I would do a 'New Years Resolution' blog post. I don't usually make resolutions but I thought this year I would make a few and see how they pan out during 2013.


1) Be more socialable - Over the years I have gradually noticed friends drifting away; many of my ol 'stomping ground friends are all getting settled, whereas I am still young (I think I still am), free and single. Those who I use to 'roll' with (haha how gangster does that sound?), obviously no longer go out, so I spend many of my evenings indoors, nattering to many of you lovely lot on good ol twitter, or reading your blogposts. Of course, I don't mind doing this once in a while, but I am growing tiresome of it. So I made a promise to myself by being more socialable; going out with work colleagues, joining an activity club where I am mixing with people my own age. This hopefully will help me to find like minded people, and develop a network of friends who i can go out with and etc.


2) Confidence - This is a major major issue for me which I have been fighting for years. Although I do feel I have made small progress uploading a picture onto twitter of myself after a year+ of blogging. I have always had it in my head that I am ''Never good enough'' for anything, and it is that I need to snap out of it and believe in myself a lot more. My job has to some degree given me that belief that I can do it, although I still think ''I am not good enough''. 2013 I am aim to try and break that demon and believe that ''I can do it'' and believe in myself a lot more. Once I can master that, I think within myself I will be a lot happier. I also aim to stamp out negativity and have the PMA mentality - Positive Mental Attitude.

3) Travel - There are so many places in the world I want to visit, but friends always say no because they don't want to leave their gf/bf behind, or have other commitments. So I figured why should I not visit these places because friends don't want to? So I have decided to go it alone. One place I have always wanted to visit is Italy, and as a treat to myself I am going to try and go there at some point in 2013.


4) Job - Many of you will know that finding a job is ridiculously hard in this current climate. I graduated over 2yrs ago, and I still have not been able to find full time employment in a job that will allow me to grow and be happy. I did however manage to get a part time job at the start of the 2012, which I am grateful for, but it is not something that I want to do for the rest of my life, and my manager knows this. 2013 I plan to go 'hard' in securing that job that I am longing for. I am at that point in my life where it is now time to find my feet, and start paving a career path which I so desperately want to do. 


5) Keep Fit - I keep reasonably fit on a weekly basis doing my Tap dancing. I thoroughly enjoy it, but I don't think what I am doing is sufficient in comparison to what I use to do; dance 5days a week, plus teach. So I am going to join a gym in the new year. I know it's something everyone says; new year, christmas has just passed, time to lose weight, and blabla but I think not only will it keep my body healthy but also help to keep my mind healthy too.

6) Take more pictures - I was sifting through my pictures, and I have realised I don't have many of myself with family or friends as of late. Everyone is growing up so fast, things are always changing, and I thought I have nothing to have reminders of these memories. Since blogging I have enjoyed taking snaps, so I have vowed to take more pictures throughout 2013.

7) Be a better blogger - 2011 I was like a  blogging machine, blogging at every spare moment I got. However last year I got rather busy with work, and just didn't seem to have as much time as I had hoped to blog lots and lots for you all. This year I aim to blog at least 2 times a week; whether that be fashion, beauty or lifestyle.

8) Drink more water - I use to drink loads of water all the time, but for some reason last year I seem to have fallen off the wagon, and not drunk as much, which might be why I am struggling with my skin. Anyway, I will aim to drink at least 5/6 glasses of water a day.

I think I have set 8 very realistic resolutions which I feel I will be able to achieve by the end of 2013.

Have you done a resolutions blog post? If so, post your link below - I look forward to reading them all.
