Happy New Year, and welcome 2014!
So I'm really not a Christmas kind of person. Sure, it's nice to see the family and all of that, but we tend to do that fairly often anyway and it is considerably less stressful seeing the family when it isn't Christmas and everyone is calm and peaceful! Nevertheless, I may not be a Christmas fan but I do love New Year.
Something about fresh starts and exciting new opportunities just appeals to me so much, and of course I am one of those people who every year make wild resolutions that I really have no intention of keeping. However, this year is going to be different and I know everyone always says that but I'm serious, this year is going to be different because I'm going to make 4 resolutions that I'm actually capable of achieving.
I love reading, it's honestly one of my most favourite things in the world. I'm going to be in year 12 this year which means I'll be stressed and busy all the time, so I really want to schedule in some time - even if it is just on the weekends - to simply read a good book. I've already gotten off to a great start, having read 11 books since I first started my holidays in December so hopefully this continues.
2. Drink more water
When it comes to water I swear I'm like a camel. I can honestly go a whole day without drinking a single thing with no real problems. Winter is the worst because I just do not drink. I know this is absolutely terrible so I'm going to make a huge effort to drink up. Everyone at school carries a drink bottle around with them, so I shall begin doing that too, but it's just so annoying having to go to the toilet all the time!
3. Blog, blog, blog
This one is easy - carry on blogging. Blogging is such an enjoyable activity for me, and despite the fact that this is going to be a huge year, I intend to continue doing my best to post as often as possible, and read everyone else's wonderful blogs.
4. Be content with less than perfection
This might actually be the most difficult one to work on, but the most important too. As I've mentioned, I'm going to be a year 12 this year which is absolutely terrifying in every way! School and study is really a number 1 priority in my life and I dedicate so much time to it to do really well in my studies. I've always been a perfectionist and it can be challenging when I get grades that aren't what I consider to be perfect. This is of course, not sustainable, and I want to be able to finish the year knowing that whatever grade (ATAR) I get is okay because I've worked hard and done my best. I need to change my thinking which will be hard, but worth it.
So there are my 3 big resolutions for the year, and I really do hope that I stick to them. I might even include my progress in every Monthly Favourites post so I don't simply forget them and stop working towards them.
I would love love love to hear your resolutions for 2014!
I agree with all of yours pretty much! I'm exactly like you when it comes to drinking water - it's SO annoying having to go to the toilet so much when you drink a lot! haha. Oh gosh I'm so scared for this year especially because I still have NO idea what I want to do afterward! I reckon my new years resolution is to stop procrastinating so much - ugh it will be the death of my grades!ReplyDelete
I am seriously like a camel, I just do not feel the need to drink water! I also hate the inconvenience of having to go to the toilet all the time too, especially at school when you are trying to concentrate on something complicated! That is quite scary, not knowing what you want to do when you finish. It is quite strange when you think about it, that we have to decide on such a huge aspect of our life so early on. Procrastination is a big issue! Hopefully you can not do it so much this year! xxDelete
Great resolutions, good luck! I'm sure you'll do fine in keeping them all!ReplyDelete
I agree with you, I can't wait to continue blogging although it'll sure be a busy year. Good luck in Year 12. It definitely is stressful but it's all worth it in the end if you try hard at it.
Thanks Sheri! I think it is so important that I keep blogging even though I will have a million other things to do too, because I just enjoy it so much.xxDelete
Good luck for year 12 :) Great resolutions, I'm hoping to read more in 2014 too!ReplyDelete
Thanks lovely, I think 2014 should be the year of reading :) xDelete
Awesome, read more books. I think that should be everyone's New Years Resolution regardless of how many books they already read. Woohoo year 12, the pressure's on! (Just kidding, it's not really that scary!)ReplyDelete
Books, books, books, I just love them! You're right, the pressure really is on! Haha xxDelete
I also made a resolution to read more books! I picked up a few at the library the other day actually :)ReplyDelete
Good luck with your studies x
I think it is a resolution that I might actually be able to keep because I just love reading so much! Thank you, I'm so nervous about year 12! xDelete
