Welcome back to my blog! I had to take time off (unintentionally) and spent the last month or so wondering if blogging is for me as well as having the flu for 2 weeks, 2 major exams to revise for and Christmas. It all seems so long ago now but I’m back, I’m going to blog and I’m sorry for there not being any posts. Here goes my first post of 2018…
I don’t really like making new year’s resolutions as I never stick to them and just feel deflated. For this year I have decided to make attainable goals that I know I will stick too, hope to achieve and that I don’t feel too much pressure on (that’s a lie, there is loads of pressure but you get me).
Goal Number 1 (‘The Main one’) – PASS MY MASTERS DEGREE.
This has been hands down the hardest thing I’ve ever done – even harder than moving away, and I am determined to pass the degree. As I said earlier on in the post, I had 2 exams last week and the exams did not go as well as I wanted so now, in my second term, I’m making changes and giving it 120%. I hand my dissertation in in September so I should know by October my results and I’ve got everything crossed.
Goal Number 2 (The Generic One) – BE HAPPIER WITH MYSELF
I think everyone makes this goal every year but after a pretty poor couple of years, I’m going to try to be happier with myself, my decisions and my life. I have quite low confidence in myself but I’m trying to change that and believe in myself.
Goal Number 3 (The One I Should’ve Done 6 Years Ago) – PASS MY DRIVING TEST
I turn 23 this year and I will not go another year without being able to drive. Each year I leave it, I get more and more anxious about it so I need to throw myself into lessons and pass. Plus it will help when I get a job in my field so its kind of a necessity.
Goal Number 4 (The Possible One) – TRAVEL MORE
I have post coming soon about the places that I would like to visit this year and I’m determined to try to visit more places, whether thats in the UK or abroad, I just want explore the world. Fingers crossed I’ll be able to get a job where I can travel too! My scratch map is looking rather bare!
So thats my four attainable, realistic goals for 2018 and I hope I can write a post in a years time and say yes, I achieved them and more. After a poor couple of weeks to start 2018, I need to make this the year I achieve my goals.
Do you have any goals for the year?
