2017 has genuinely been the best year of my life so far. I’ve spent time with the most amazing people, and smiled/laughed until my jaw aches too many times to count. I turned 21, figured out I look like PS1 Ron Weasley (seriously I have the photos to prove it), I’ve seen my favourite bands, I’ve been to Disneyland Paris and Cape Verde. I also passed my driving test, started an access course and got offers for university. I can’t believe so much has happened this year! I am very excited for 2018.
Improve my photography and video skills
If you read my what I got for Christmas post, Rhys very kindly bought me a GoPro, which I am so excited to use. I definitely want to get to know the settings so I can use it to the best of it’s ability, and so I’m ready to make a great video montage of our holiday in June. I also want to learn how to use my Canon 600D properly (yes I’ve had it for years) – so I can improve my blog photography and general photography.
I know this is such a generic new year goal and I’ve put it before, but this time I actually do mean to get fit. I joined the gym in 2017 and was getting really good with going, but I ended up being ill for the majority of the year so couldn’t go a lot of the time. This year I’m hoping that I’m ill a lot less and can go to the gym at least three times a week.
I’m so bad at winding down and relaxing, I need to get better at this and this means some binging on TV series and watching films I’ve never seen. I have a huge list of recommendations from people in my life, so I’ll be working my way through that list in 2018 as well as adding new films to the list that are coming out in the future.
After years of wanting to go to university to study Midwifery, I finally began my access course in April 2017 and have been offered places from universities to start in September 2018, on the condition that I achieve all merits and distinctions in my assignments. I am unbelievably excited for this time in my life and I can’t wait to start getting prepared throughout this year.
I’m not even over exaggerating when I say that 2017 was the best and happiest year of my life. I think being happy is such a simple goal to some, but until late 2016 I couldn’t remember the last time I was truly happy. I am aiming to carry on being happy throughout 2018!
