It's August from loving life (link to my blog: nailartiste.blogspot.co.uk) I saw on Twitter that Gemma was looking for guest bloggers as she goes to explore Thailand (so jealous) and I love her blog so I thought where better than to do my second guest blog. It feels slightly weird writing on somebody else's blog but it's also great fun.
First I'd like to reflect on 2013. Makes it easier to plan ahead.
I remember distinctly saying to myself and others that 2013 sounds like it's not going to be a good year. I'm not superstitious or anything but maybe it had something to do with the '13.
I'm a big believer of the tongue having great power so I'm not quite sure why I was saying it.
However, 2013 turned out to be a pretty good year for me and I'm so grateful.
So as I plan ahead for the new year ahead I'd first like to say none of this new year new me stuff.
Half of the time it ends up being new year same me if not worse lol.
Instead new year, updated me.
Some things I did in the year 2013 that I'm really happy about:
1.starting a blog
- I've had so much fun writing on my blog
2. Starting exercise regularly
- earlier in the year I joined the gym for a couple of months to get in shape for my holiday and I've been able to keep it going. Even in these freezing winter months
Things I want to start/continue in 2014:
1. My blog
I would love to post more regularly, get some fashion related posts as I do love fashion (it's where most of money goes to if I'm totally honest) and have like a themed I post regularly for, get more followers (or more active ones). I would love more blog exposure and even possibly start to have some guest posts on it.
2. Get on top of my Uni work
I used to be that person that wouldn't step into a library until exams were a couple of weeks away and if I want that first class that obviously isn't the way to go! The end of 2013 saw a different me and I'd like to be on top of my work. I don't like it when things pile up as I have no idea where to start so I tend to leave it which obviously isn't a good idea but yet I continue to...
3. Get on top of my finances
I'm doing a lot better but there's always room for improvement
4. Pass my driving test
I'm so close to being ready (it's a confidence thing) and it's talking all my money. Passing it will also help me with number 4
5. Get my training post Uni sorted
Although I'll be graduating in 2015, in 2014 is when I need to start applying for my training post graduation. Hopefully I'll get the place of my choice!
Thanks for reading! And I hope 2013 has been a great year and even if it hasn't don't worry as I hope 2014 is an even better year for you!!!
