Oh hi 2014.Wednesday, January 01, 2014
2013, seemed to be the year I became a grown up. We moved from our cosy albeit very damp flat into an actual house. With two bathrooms, and two shower heads, I know how grown up. We also got Frankie and kind of become parents, I am like an embarrassing mother posting pictures of him on Instagram, all the time. Apologies for that, I'm a step away from changing my profile picture to him on Facebook. I jest, I jest, I would never do that. It's like false advertising, like when people have a car as their picture on Facebook. Oh are you a transformer? Cool, it's amazing what can happen when you leave school. Anyway, thanks to Frankie, who I love very much but always gets me up at 7:30am, and adults always seem to get up early don't they? So I'm going into 2014 a range rover away from being a soccer mom. Okay I joke, I am still a whipper snapper and I still look 12. But 2013 definitely felt a bit more grown up for me.
With this in mind, I've decided my new years resolutions are to be more grown up ones. Last year, I aimed
to get abs. Abs of the tummy variety by the way, I don't have a unhealthy obsession with Abz from 5ive. I also aimed to pass my driving test which I managed to do, and that was the more unrealistic one. This year I won't be wishing for abs, considering I haven't set foot in the gym for six months (it closed down, I just haven't stopped going) and I do have a lot of Christmas chocolates to get through. I've always been a person who's very hard on themselves, my own worst critic so in 2014 I've decided to be kinder to myself. I'm going to resolute to stop comparing myself to others, I am my own person and I am who I am and that's it. I need to stop comparing my blogs and videos, I can only work with what I've got, and my limited editing skills. I should be proud of what I achieve, and if you're like me always comparing yourself too, then you should do this too.
I also worry about everything and anything, stupid stuff that will probably never happen, so that needs to stop. And a new job has to be on the horizon. On paper my job may seem perfect, but it's far from it and working out that I'm really not happy there something needs to change. So I will also be getting on those job sites and sending off many CV's. Other than that, I don't know what 2014 will have in store. Hopefully exciting things, we're going to Orlando in April which will be fun, I'm already making a Sephora shopping list.
I hope that I start to feel more confident with my blog and videos, and I definitely need to up my game. 2014 is a new start. So I have created a little questionnaire.. I feel like I am back at uni, making surveys on Survey Monkey, and I've seen a few other bloggers put out surveys which I think is a really good idea, and hopefully this will help me get everything back on track. If you have two mins, and don't mind answering a few questions about what you'd like to see on my blog and youtube channel I'd be really appreciative :)
So with that I am off to continue watching my Made in Chelsea box set with Frankie. Let's hope I maybe start acting like a 22 year old again in 2014. After all it can't get much worse than when my dad asked what I wanted for Christmas, I said a gravy boat... What are your new years resolutions?
