The Heartbreak Of Giving Up On Hobbies

Growing up, I was that child. You know, the one who was out every night after school at clubs. Ballet lessons, French lessons, recorder lessons, piano lessons, flute lessons, tap lessons, the school netball team, chess club (don’t laugh) and choir. Right up until I went to university, I still took ballet and contemporary dance lessons each week. But there’s something about getting older that makes you slowly dissolve your hobby list, and recently it’s been getting me down. Where are my hobbies now?

My 2018 Goals

It’s the last day of 2017 (bloody hell, that’s flown) so it’s time to set goals and resolutions. I find this a bit of a challenge every year, so I’m keeping with some easy goals that I can definitely achieve. Nothing in terms of numbers since every social media site is awful right now, but things that I want to achieve over the coming year. Some of these do follow the tasks I set myself earlier in the year as well as those I failed at from this time last year, but this time I’m far more focused. I can do this!

December So Far

Today’s post was going to be all about my trip to Lincoln Christmas Market, but I had another idea. Whilst I could’ve taken a ton of photos, as I was spending time with someone else I just stopped thinking about Essential Twenty for a bit. I enjoyed the day (apart from getting elbowed by a really rude woman pushing past me to get on the train) away from my camera and instead I’m talking about everything I’ve done through December so far.

I’m In A Blogging Slump

I know just a couple of weeks ago I was on a real blogging high. I was excited to improve my blog, try new things and just have a great time. But now, I’m in a blogging slump. The biggest slump I’ve ever been in. And this is not good considering blogmas is just a couple of weeks away and I’m not prepared in the slightest. Seriously, I only have two posts written for the entirety of December.

23 Tasks For Self Improvement At 23

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY! Yep, today I turn the ripe old age of 23 and I’ve been thinking about what I’m going to post today for a good few months. I could’ve done 23 things I’ve learnt, 23 memories, something along the lines of a bucket list, you know, the usual birthday post. But last week it came to me. There are a lot of places in my life I’m looking to improve so I’m sharing 23 tasks I’ve set myself to improve my life. It could be blog life, it could be family life or it could be social life. But there are 23 things I’d like to improve on, and since it’s my blog I’m going to share it even if you don’t care. Also, enjoy the unrelated blog pics, my setup is currently covered in Christmas presents whoops!
