With 2017 around the corner, everyone is making New Years resolutions. I’ve decided that I would talk about what I’m looking forward to for the new year, although don’t fret – a resolutions post is coming in early Jan! Here are just a few things I’m looking forward to in 2017. Enjoy!
My 22nd Birthday. Considering my 21st was a disaster for more than a few reasons, I am really excited about my birthday next year. I always feel like my birthday is a bit of a burden on people. The past couple haven’t been too successful so hopefully turning 22 is going to be a good one!
Winter. I LOVE winter. Every year, I actually count down the days until it starts to get cold again! I way prefer winter fashion to summer fashion. I have a lot of beautiful coats and boots that I want to wear but can’t because they don’t mix well with the New Zealand summer. One of my favourite activities is snuggling up in bed with a movie – and it’s way nicer to do this when it’s not 30 degrees outside.
More Blogging Opportunities. Considering I’ve only had my blog since July 2016, I have done some pretty cool stuff. Having just finished up a campaign with DB Breweries, hosting competitions and being sent products for reviews I have been pretty lucky to do all of that in such a short space of time. I can’t wait to see what 2017 holds for my little space on the internet!
Weekends Away. I really want to try and get away more next year. My best friend Briana and I have talked about flying down to Wellington and Queenstown for a couple of days next year, so I’m looking forward to exploring more of New Zealand! Considering I’ve lived here for 11 years, I really should have been to both Wellington and Queenstown haha!
Going Back to Uni. Weirdly, I love uni. I like the structure, and love exercising my brain – something that I don’t get from working full time. I only have 1 paper left, for my least favourite subject but I look forward to putting some work into my education again!
Getting My Anxiety Under Control (again). This year I made the decision to not take my anti-anxiety/depression medication and it’s just not working. I remember how great I felt when I was on them previously, and I wanna get back to that! Obviously being medicated isn’t ideal – however sometimes that’s what it takes! I talked about my depression/anxiety back in July, and it was one of my most viewed posts! Read it here.
New Friendships! I have met so many cool people in the last few months so i’m excited to see where those friendships go and get closer to people. I’m very good at pushing people away because of my issues around social situations so i’m going to try and not push new friends away next year! I’ve spoken about my social anxiety before on my blog here.
What are you looking forward to most in 2017?
Thank you so much for reading! As always, love Lyd x
