Hello and welcome to 2016!
I’ve been getting it wrong all day and I’ve realised that I can now say I’m 21 next year which is a little bit scary but it’s slowly kicking in that it’s actually 2016.
The header photo is a sight I’ve been waiting to see all year – a full year of blogging and don’t the stats look beautiful?! I was so happy to be able to get this screenshot.
But now I’m back down to zero – I’ve got to keep up my blog on my own terms and I’m looking forward to it.
I talked yesterday about my plans for this blog – how I intend to broaden my subject focus and take more photos for myself. I want to write longer and more structured posts – now that I’ve concrete settled my love for blogging I’m going to really concentrate on making my content more engaging and reflect more of what I learn at uni in my blog.
Outside of blogging but still online – I have a big YouTube project planned for next year. Inspired by Hazel Hayes’ (chewingsand) ‘Time of the Month’, I’m planning a monthly blogging series. Essentially I vlog every day or whenever I do something exciting (for example, today I only did a little vlog because Lucas and I went for a walk and had dinner with his grandparents and I’m not very vlogging confident yet – I imagine it’s something that will come with practice.
But that’s a little secret for my dedicated blog readers, I’m not going to say it on YouTube until I’ve successfully completed January because if January is a complete flop, I’ll only end up bailing out at the end of the year which I don’t want to do because I’m too stubborn – hence why I blogged every day for a year!
Outside of the internet, I have very stereotypical ‘I’m going to become healthier’ resolution – I’m going to start running, eating more healthily, looking after my skin better and generally presenting myself better (I’m very aware of my belly right now, I really want to lose some weight next year!).
And then I want to be more creative too – I want to take more photos, make more videos of different genres, write more both of my book and maybe script writing (to combine with the YouTube?) and I want to make more things physically – I have a scrapbook that’s been sat on a shelf in my uni room ever since I got there and I have so much to put in it! That’s something I need to do before I move out really otherwise it’ll be awful to transport back to my mum’s house.
2015 was the year of the most change – it was the biggest year of my life so far and I’m hoping the 2016 will be even bigger. I want to go on adventures and be spontaneous and grow as a person.
But doesn’t every teenager say that in the year they turn 20?
Hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and I wish you the best for 2016!!
Thank you for reading,
