“I made no resolutions for the New Year. The habit of making plans, of criticizing, sanctioning and molding my life, is too much of a daily event for me. ”
I always used to make new years resolutions, and they would always be the same.
- Lose weight
- Exercise more
- Drink more water
- Lose some more weight
- Stop being fat
- Start saving for a boob job
- Honestly love, just stop eating
There’s something truly bleak about using the fresh start a new year brings to focus on the things you don’t like and want to change about yourself. Seriously, look at the definition of a resolution:
1. a firm decision to do or not to do something.
2. the action of solving a problem, dispute, or contentious matter.
So, here’s a few of things I want to do in 2018.
- Travel to a country I’ve never visited
- Go for afternoon tea somewhere fancy (I had a voucher for this in 2017, but completely forgot to use it before it’s expiry date. Oops)
- Go to an outside cinema event
- Try a new cuisine (I’m thinking Sri Lankan or Filipino. Any other good recommendations?)
- Read at least 75 books (and try to make some of them classics)
- Try to get a job in travel
- Start learning Spanish
- Drink more cocktails (2016 had a lot of cocktails. 2017 performed poorly in comparison.)
- See something in theatre
- Cook a new recipe
- Take at least one photo that you absolutely love
- Explore somewhere new in the UK
- Keep writing (but only if you keep enjoying it)
- Tick something off your travel bucket list
- Find a theme for this blog that you actually like
- Learn something new
- Get a great massage
