New Years Resolutions for 2018


A self-portrait :  29 / 12 / 17

Hello there 2018!
I, like many others, am hoping that this year will be the sensational third act of this three-year-long tragicomedy. 2017 was a good year for me; I saw my short film being made into a real tangible thing, I completed my A-Levels with pretty pleasing results, I went to film school, and I moved to London for University! So I can only hope that 2018 is even better. As they say: ‘new year, new me’!

1. Focus on my blog and YouTube channel

Whenever I’m working on my blog – be it writing a review, editing a video, or promoting posts on my social media – I’m so so happy, it’s what I enjoy the most. One of my resolutions last year was to use my blog more freely, more for me. That’s something I’ve been doing a lot more recently (with the Shakespeare Series, list posts, and longer chattier videos), and it’s something I hope to continue. I have so much more to learn and I’m so excited to learn it. So this one is definitely a priority!

2. Read 25 books

In my New Years Resolutions for 2016, I said I would read 50 books; a goal which I actually beat! But last year, although I didn’t count how many books I actually did read this year, I know it wasn’t very many at all. Those I did read were all very good – with the likes of The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James and The Outcast by Sadie Jones – but I miss reading and reviewing properly. So I thought 25 would be a good aim, and hopefully I can smash it too!

3. Go to the gym!

If you’re playing New Years Resolution bingo then you can strike this generic one off! Since starting university I’ve realised I have a lot more time on my hands, time that I could and should be using more productively. So this is the perfect time to join and go to the gym – although I can’t promise I won’t be watching Netflix whilst on the treadmill.
In fact, I intend to!

4. Have adventures

Is this a super vague resolution? Yes, it is.
But I want 2018 to be a year of adventures for me; whether it’s a great adventure, like going to Hobbiton (which I am doing eeek!), or a small one, like simply going out of my comfort zone once or twice. Better late than never doesn’t apply to every situation, so why wait any longer?


Place du Tertre, Montmartre : 20 / 2 / 2017

I don’t have a huge amount of resolutions this year but I think four is still plenty – these resolutions mean a lot to me and, I hope, will help me become a better me. Ugh, that cheesiness made even me cringe. Nevertheless, it’s true. New Years itself doesn’t mean much: it’s just the start of a new calendar, a new day like any other. But you can make it as meaningful as you want it to be and I think that is impressive.
So I wish you all a wonderful 2018, I know you’re going to slay it!
