Only a short one today – I’ve only got a few minutes before I need to leave. I just wanted to get this one out on time, before it’s officially too late. Continue reading
How on earth is it this time of the year already? Continue reading
I’m back from hiatus, everyone! And since I am, it’s time for me to start with a tradition that I’ve kept for two years now. Continue reading
Last year, I started a New Year’s tradition for myself.
Resolutions never really seemed to ring true for me. I tend to set goals rather than resolutions, and, well, I do that all the time. I still wanted to do something to mark the new year, to make it all feel a little more final, so I had to do something other than setting goals. Therefore, I decided that I would henceforth name my years, based on what I intended to accomplish over the course of 12 months.
Last year was the Year of the Harebrained Scheme, where I started up projects and threw myself into plans that I’d been previously too hesitant to start up. It was the year where I wanted to get things moving, mark a few items off the bucket list, and maybe push myself just a little bit.
It seemed to be a bit more true for the world at large than I would have liked in many ways – there are many ways I would like to be very slightly prophetic, but Brexit and killer clowns were not among them.
But we’re now on the brink of 2017, and I need to come up with its name.
I declare 2017 to be the Year of Brace Yourself.
In 2016 I put a lot of things in motion. 2017 is the year I need to buckle down and see them through. I’ll be trying to gain new followers for the blog as well as keep up the buffer. I’ll be finishing off a few writing projects, so I have plenty of writing content to be going forward with. I’ll also be consolidating work plans, finding a place where I’m financially stable and hopefully in a place where I don’t need to be making plans to find money for a little while and can concentrate on other things. And, of course, I’ll be trying to make sure I get above my required marks at uni, so I don’t need to stress out in future semesters.
So that’s my 2017 plans. Hope everyone is having a great holiday season, no matter what you do or don’t celebrate. See you next year.
