2015 and Hopes for the Future

We’re onto a new year and with it new expectations and hope. Also this is the year that will see my 24th birthday, which seems really old even though I know it’s not that bad. A lot of people already know what they want to achieve this year and I feel like I’m being left behind as I still don’t have a clue.

To be honest, I’ve not really been sure what I want to do since I graduated from university last year. I’ve always had fanciful plans of what I want my life to be like but now time seems to be going so fast that I have no way of being able to achieve what I really want. So I’m going to try and make this the year that I focus on what is important to me and so far I’ve come up with a couple of things.

1) Maintaining both of my blogs to a high standard. Some of you may not be aware but as well as this lifestyle blog I also have a side blog which is dedicated to reviews of popular culture. Over the past few months it has been a little bit neglected so I’m going to aim to get that one up to the same standard as this one.

2) Keeping my youtube channel more active. I’ve had a youtube channel since 2006 but I only really started to use it two and half years ago. I want to develop this into something that reflects who I am better and find out what works and what doesn’t really work with what I’m doing. In fairness this was one of my resolutions last year but this year I’m going to try and make it better.

3) Dedicate more time to my writing. Since I was 9 years old I’ve always wanted to write. I’ve had poems published in small publications but I’ve always wanted to have a novel published and be on the shelves in a shop. Last year I did really well and wrote the most that I have in any other year but I want to build on that this year. So I’m going to try and write around 500 words a day and make sure that I finish this idea. Because if I can finish one idea I know I will be able to finish all the other ideas that I have written all over my house.

Hopefully if I manage to keep up with all of these then I might have more of a plan of what I want to do at the end of the year than I do right now. And if anything it might help me to stop pulling the face at the side when I think about my future!

Hasta la fuego

  1. This is a great post, love! Figuring out what you want after graduating from school is a trying time. You'll learn a lot about yourself over the next year (and many more to come, of course!). I hope you accomplish everything you want.

  2. Well I'm currently in a temporary teaching position as I didn't know if I wanted to be a teacher or not but definitely leaning more towards the not side of things now! Thanks! I'm hoping I will figure myself out at some point! I hope you are able to achieve what you want as well 😀

  3. I really loved this post 🙂 love your blog! xx
