Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! It’s 2018 already! The older I get, the quicker the years just seem to fly by. I spent New Year’s Eve watching Harry Potter and the Cursed Child with my sister. I was given tickets for Christmas back in 2016 and it’s been a year long wait to experience the world of Harry Potter once again.

New year’s resolutions. Do you make them? I don’t usually. I have a habit of setting far too ambitious goals for myself to achieve before the year is up. This year will be different. My first goal is to make healthier food choices and to spend some more time exercising and staying fit. Probably everyone has something similar that they set themselves annually, but my main goal is to just feel healthier in myself and not necessarily to loose weight.

I also want to spend more time reading. I love the experience of going into a bookshop to buy a book and taking it home to spend the evening reading till the early hours of the morning. However, I don’t give myself enough time to do that anymore. I like to keep my books in pristine condition so I won’t usually carry them around in my bag because they would get scuffed being tossed around, so I will only ever read at home. The problem is that by the time I get into bed and want to pick up a book, I am just too tired from work or I’ll just want to switch on Netflix and fall asleep.

This year I also want to continue journaling. So much happens so quickly, it’s nice to keep a record of what went on so I can look back on events years later. As a teenager I would do this everyday. Now I probably won’t need to do it as often. Haha!

Anyway. I think that’s all I can think of for now. I have a couple of other goals I want to achieve this year, but I’ll share those with you at a later date. Happy 2018!
