For me, 2012 hasn't been the best year. There have been some good things that have happened, but maybe it's just because I'm a pessimist that the bad things are out-weighing the good. I can think of two good things off the top of my head. And that is, that I graduated university and that I started my blog. I wont go into too much detail about the bad stuff, though! I thought I'd share some of my resolutions with you, and because they're written on my blog I'll have to stick to them!
1. Drink less fizzy juice
Normally I drink mostly fizzy juice (Pepsi etc) and even though I don't drink full fat, it's still not great. I wouldn't want to go completely cold turkey, because when you do that it makes you want it more. So I definitely need to have it in moderation. I'm limiting myself to one can a week!
2. Lose my injured foot/Christmas weight
I'm pretty sure that losing Christmas weight it on everyone's list, but I've gained a tiny bit more than usual. I've been out of exercise commison since Halloween when I tore the ligaments in my left foot so being inactive is the main problem. I'm still not going to be able to do any high impact exercise for a while, like running or anything (my exercise of choice, dammit!) so I'm going to try and do some yoga - I've always wanted to try it so now is my opportunity! And I'll probably do some walking, but as soon as I can get running again the better. (Also, I really shouldn't be wearing heels, but I'm wearing smallish ones out tonight, and taking flats in my bag - naughty!)
3. Pass my driving test
I've been doing driving lessons on and off since I was 17 and a half (I'm almost 21 now!), so I really just want to get my test done. In January last year I done my theory test, so from the 17th of Jan, I've only got a year before I need to resit that. Lots of things got in the way, first of all it was my social life when I turned 18, I was going out all of the time and my lessons were getting in the way of my hangovers. Then I didn't have the money for lessons, and when I did (at the start of 2012) my driving instructor messed me around a lot, turning up 20 minutes late for lessons and expecting full pay - so I quit because he was an ass, and I was getting into the final part of uni which really needed my full attention. So this is sort of a two parter - find a good instructor, and make passing my test a priority!
4. Stop wasting my time with people who don't deserve itThis might seem a little ridiculous, but if you know me well, you know that I notoriously waste time with people who don't deserve it. I have good friends, and I'm a bit better at spotting fake friends but basically I'm talking about boys! I always end up liking a complete idiot. I think it's a condition, but alas there is no cure (as far as I know). I waste my time (and so do they - halfwits!) and then I feel all low because they turn out to be a massive disappointment. So, time to be a little more protective and careful with my heart I think!
I hope you all have a wonderful New Year whatever you are doing! And keep a look out over the next week or so, I'll be posting my 2012 favourites, and something to do with my makeup and outfit for tonight
