2016 has been one of the best yet worst years of my life, but every year is going to have its ups and downs thats just life. As 2016 is ending and 2017 is beginning I sit here thinking about what 2017 will have in store for me. I already know 2017 will probably be one of the most stressful years of my life as I finish second year of university and enter my third and finally year. I also think that its going to be a year of opportunities and adventures. As all my friends and boyfriend are out partying, Im sat in bed, face mask on, thinking about what I want to achieve next year.
1. Care more about my university work
University is not my favourite place and I’m not totally in love with my course, however, I can’t bring myself to throw in the towel. I want to show myself that I can do it. So next year I am going to focus and put more effort into my university work. I want to achieve good grades and prove to myself that I can do it, even if I do find it rather stressful.
2. Focus more on myself and to not let myself get so stressed
I want to focus more on myself, health wise and just myself as a person. I need to start looking after my health a bit more as with how busy my life is this always tends to take a back seat (healthy eating will finally begin). I also don’t cope with stress well and balancing university work with a part time job is difficult at times, so I want to focus more on taking time out of my busy day to chill. Whether this is just half an hour with a face mask on and reading a magazine, just something to help stop the stress levels building up.
3. Take more opportunities and travel more
Next year I will take more opportunities, whether I create them myself with this blog or hunt them down in order to gain more work experience to help me with my future career. I want to build my experience and knowledge that will help me in the future. I also want to travel more, I haven’t traveled much but when I have I have loved it. I love being able to experience different places and see what other places offer. This will require saving money but it will be worth it.
With that said I hope 2017 is an amazing year for me and I will look back on this in a year and see whether any of these things actually happened (I hope they do). I look forward to the year ahead of me and I hope you do as well. What are your goals and thoughts on the year ahead?
