New Year's Resolutions!
Hi everyone, long time no speak. As you can imagine I have been caught up with all of the holiday festivities and have sadly neglected my blog. I hope you all had wonderful christmases and are bringing in the new year tonight with your friends and families!
Tonight is New Years Eve and I am spending it with my friends at a local pub, there is sure to be lots of drinking, dancing and general merryment! As tradition goes, I thought I would share with you all my new year's resolutions. I make a few every year and inevitably I always fail to keep them. And this year is no different, I make my resolutions with the best of intentions and maybe this year is the year i'll be successful!
So, here goes:
1. See my friends more! - I count myself lucky to have my friends very close to where I live, that being said, I don't think we do enough together. This year I am going to organise more things, instead of waiting for opportunities to fall into my lap, I'm going to be proactive! First up on the agenda is to plan and execute a trip to Edinburgh for my birthday in May.
2. Healthy body! Healthy mind! - This year my resolution is not going to be lose weight, diet and eat properly, give up drinking....blah, blah, blah! Because this has worked so well for me before right! Hahaha! No, this year my goal is to aim for a generally more healthy lifestyle. Not stress myself out over the latest diet craze or the fact that I never went to the gym 20 million times a week like I said I was going to. If I'm more positive about getting fit and healthy gradually over time, everything else will just fall into place. I've come to realise that cutting out everything you like will never work, its all about finding the balance! Although this will have to start tomorrow due to the copious amounts of alcohol I plan to consume tonight!
3. Keep my flat tidy! - This is definitely something I suck at! I can't lie, I make the most mess one person can possibly make. No joke... So, pull yourself together Charlotte, you are 23 years old, you most certainly can keep your flat clean and tidy. When you take off your clothes, put them in the washing basket not on the floor! When you cook, wash up straight away and it won't build up! Vacuum once a week! Clean bathroom and kitchen, once a week! This is not rocket science, YOU CAN DO IT!!! Okay, pep talk over with! This is definitely the one resolution, I'm determined to keep.
and finally, its the big one!
4. Stop SHOPPING! - This year I would really like to pay off my credit cards, save a little money, get a Louis Vuitton handbag and Christian Louboutin shoes and have nice holidays. But my problem is that I shop, buying stupid little things that I don't need which clutter up my flat and which all add up to hundreds of pounds over the year which would easily buy me a LV handbag! This means cutting out online shopping and to stop watching so many youtube hauls.
So, there you have it. Do you think I can do it??? I really hope so! Post your new years resolutions in the comments, I really want to hear what your goals for the new year are.
To everyone celebrating New Year's tonight, I hope you have a really fantastic time and I wish everyone a happy, healthy and successful 2010.
