My 2018 Resolutions

Yes this is late again…I’ve been busy okay?? *has secretly been watching Friends all day*

Hey Guys,

So today I am going to be telling you guys my resolutions for the new year!

I figured telling you guys would keep me more motivated to complete them because I know I have you all to please so I thought it would be a good way to keep me on track.

Today in English class (they moved me up to set one!!) one of the girls I sit next to (let’s call her Taylor) actually wrote some resolutions in my planner that she thought I should stick to – I’m actually gonna add a few in.

Okay so my resolutions are as follows –


 Smile more –

This is actually one of Taylor’s one – I don’t know if I’ve told you this but I’m pretty sure I have resting Bitch/Sad face. I mean, she’s not the first one to tell me that I need to smile more, but I didn’t know that it was THAT much of an issue I mean, really? Is it that bad? Anyway, it’s one thing that I intend to work on a lot this year.

Socialise more –

This is also another one of Taylor’s – I am pretty content with my current friend group so – why make new friends now? Honestly, I feel like since I’ve been to school with the same people for almost 5 years now, I would have made my friends now right? I’m waiting till college to find my tribe (in case you don’t know what that is, I say it a lot because my personal therapist – aka my tutor always tells me that) Anyway, I feel like I’ll make my friends for life (along with the ones I have now) later down the line…I’m just that type of person, but I guest doesn’t hurt to talk to a few more people – not necessarily be friends but…acquaintances.

Be more enthusiastic in class –

I actually think I’m getting better at this one! I think that this is the factor that made me move up in maths and now English ! Dude isn’t that crazy? I haven’t been in top set in a while after all of that stuff went down with Maya (check here) and now I’m back where I belong. I’m hoping to stay there for a long time. Anyway, I’m gonna try and pay more attention and answer more questions and MAYBE if I’m lucky, I could move back up in science too!

Read more –

Since I’ve kinda been busy writing my OWN books, I’ve kinda neglected other books that I’ve had on my account for the LONGEST TIME. Anyway, I’ve been meaning to read The Great Gatsby for AGES so I’m gonna get that done by hopefully the end of the month (I’m currently reading “We All Looked Up” by Tommy Wallach and it’s fucking awesome so as soon as I’m done with that, I’m gonna get right onto another.

Explore more –

Me and Roxy decided on this one together. We both wanna get out and see more places. I live in a city with tonnes of sights which I’ve barely seen so I really wanna get out there more and experience new things. The first thing is gonna be my HARRY STYLES CONCERT WITH LYNN! Dude, I’m so fucking excited and of course I’m gonna tell you guys ALL about it.

Study more and get AMAZING grades in my exams –

I think I’ve said this before but the exams that I have this year in May are probably the most important ones that I will ever have in my entire life and I intend to do VERY well. I got my mock exam results back yesterday and I’ll share them with you in another post but I actually did surprisingly well! I want to carry on with that streak and do even better for the real thing. I didn’t really study hard last year and was still able to achieve good grades..imagine if I buckle down and get to it? It’s like everyone says – you gotta live up to your full potential.

Okay so this last one is probably going to be one of the hardest but I’m determined to give it a good try. –

Start my new pescatarian lifestyle –

Yes you heard it here first guys – I am turning pescatarian. Yes I’ve been eating meat my whole life, yes, I know it is going to be hard but I really wanna give it a go. Not only for the health benefits, but I feel like it will free up a lot of my time picking what to eat – time that I could use in better ways, such as studying. I’ve already started and it’s going pretty well. I feel a lot lighter and I don’t know how to describe it..I feel more…pure? Okay that is DEFINITELY the wrong word but I can’t describe it (maybe they should move me back down in English huh?) anyway, this is something I’ve been wanting to try for a long time and what better time to start than the new year?

Okay so that’s it for my big resolutions. Other small ones include

  • Reducing the amount I swear
  • Learn to stop rolling my eyes (it’s seriously a problem)
  • Spend less money on silly things (fidget spinners – I’m looking at you)
  • Be Happier!
  • Reach 200 followers on my blog!

So that’s it for this blog post. what are your resolutions – planning on achieving something big? Lemme know down below!

I hope you enjoyed this blog post and I’ll see you again soon with another one

    Yessss girlll good luck on all of these! Ahahahah I started to realize that I do the resting b face a lot too whereas I used to be more “smiley” so I need to work on it too. Pescatarian as in vegan or vegetarian? Sorry I’m so uneducated about that topic but good luck!!

    Gurll this is good! And yass girl start with that healthy lifestyle, I can’t. I love meat too much. And I don’t really do new year resolutions, everyone forgets them by April anyway, and mine are pretty depressing 😂

    Nice resolutions. I’m pretty opposed to swearing less though. You should get a couple of “Fuck yous” out every other day.
    It makes you feel good.
