Get a cuppa cause this is gonna be a long post. Now, it may be late for me to write my resolutions and to reflect on my 2013, but whateves I am doing it now. In general, 2013 was an interesting year. It was the year, where I can truly say that I am on the road to "finding myself". I'm not saying that I know all the answers and can give you a detailed 5 year plan of my life, but I have learnt to trust my instincts and follow my heart.
So where do I start? So much has happened! I think the best would be to review my 2013 goals, I made back in January 2013.
1.I am happy to say that I achieved my goal of having a sick final year at University, but I didn't graduate with a 1st but a strong 2.1. University was hard, but I grew up so much and met my best friends during my 4 years, and for that I am happy to have had such a great experience. You can read more about this goal here and here.
2.Unfortunately, 2013 wasn't the year I would pass my driving test. I was pissed off tbh, as I explained here. But after some reflection, I am determined to save some money to do an intensive course to pass for the 4th time.... pray for me.
3.I didn't really get the time to do D.I.Y's. I managed the occasional nail art designs but tbh I was so busy and stifled creatively, that I couldn't bring myself to do d.i.y's.
Now there were plans to go on holiday and plan my epic travelling adventures, but money and other issues meant I had to put them in hold. Hopefully, I can go on holiday this year! Here is hoping Ghana in December will happen.
4.I did save this year, but not every week. However, it was a decent amount, but I want to make it more consistent so I have started the 52 week money saving challenge,which I shared on instagram. Currently, I have successfully completed 2 weeks, I'll keep you updated on that.
5.I made an effort to take care of myself physically and emotionally. I was eating healthier, took up dance class at uni, briefly. But most importantly, I made a promise to myself to open up more and not keep things in. I am the type of person who doesn't like to fuss, I get on with things, I persevere and put others before myself,sometimes to the detriment of myself. I often felt that opening up and showing my vulnerabilities was a weakness, but in reality I was hurting myself. So 2013, saw me, as I eloquently like to put it..not to really give a fuck, about what people thought about me. I would say when I was unhappy and do the best for me.
6. I'll just say that the room is still pending. Next mission is to build my new bed.
7.I went to Central alot, mainly due to events (the perks of blogging). Saw I went to alot of beautiful venues in London.
8.Back in mid 2013, I saw a deal on groupon for a day jewellery course to make a shamballa bracelet and earrings. I was happy to do this course because I wanted to see if making jewellery was really for me. Even though it was fun, I decided that it was cool, but i do not want to make jewellery or sell it any time soon.
9.This goal may need it's own post to itself. In a nutshell, I decided I wanted to focus on social media marketing and either work for a B2C brand or agency. I'll explain the job hunt after uni in another post.
So that is my 2013. Above are my 2014 goals, which are much more achievable and simple than 2013. Let's hope I smash them. How was your 2014 and do you have any goals for this year?
