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?
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!
Over the past couple of Christmases, one of my favourite things to do has been to read peoples What I Got For Christmas posts. I’ve uploaded these posts in the past (read my 2015 post here and my 2016 post here) and I’m doing the same this year. As always, this isn’t bragging, this is just me sharing what I got for Christmas this year. If you don’t like it then don’t bother reading it!
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!
