Making resolutions or goals for the start of a new year; has never been something I have done. Perhaps that’s where I’ve been going wrong. Too many times I have just sat back and expected the good things to happen when I should have been out there searching for them and making them happen.
2010 needs to be the year I figure some things out but also a year full of happy and exciting times. I’ve thought of a few things I’d like to achieve, or at least make a good start on. Time will tell if I’m headstrong enough to make them happen. New year, new start.
Keep taking photographs.
Although I have decided to stop studying photography at university doesn’t mean I have lost my love for it.
Start to read more books.
I used to be an avid reader and for reasons unknown to me, one day I just stopped. I need to fix this!
Find a job, pay off my student debts and save save save!
My finances are one thing on my very long list of reasons as to why I dropped out of University. There are so many things I want to do and I want to make the most of life. Life is short after all and there are many places I want to see at some point.
I remember as I child I used to spend hours and hours writing stories and reading them to anyone who would listen. It used to make me so happy; I think it’s time to take that up again.
Get a guinea pig or two.
I miss having guinea pigs so much. Whenever I go into pet shops I spend ages looking at the little piggies. They’re too cute ♥
See the sunrise as much as possible.
Finally learn to drive! I’m overcoming the nerves that I feel when thinking about learning driving and craving that freedom.
I’d love to just be able to jump in the car with the dog in the back and take her down to the beach for a walk along the sea front.
Figure out what I want to do with my life.
I’ve never been super ambitious, I’d just like to find something that I really love to do so I can put everything into it. I have a few ideas in mind and a possible opportunity opening up to me soon. I hope I’m good enough. I’d like to think would be good at it. I may begin some courses with the Open University later on in the year, maybe literature. I’m an uber geek and just love to learn.
Visit my boyfriend as much as possible.
It’s my fault we’re going back into a long distance relationship again so I feel like I have to make up for that. We’ve done it before and I’m confident that we’ll be able to make it work again. That thought doesn’t make the prospect any easier to deal with. I have a good feeling about the future with regards to our relationship.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and new year. Here’s to 2010; make it better than ’09.
