New Year's Resolutions: 3.0

Another year has come around already: I say 'already' but I feel like 2017 has dragged a little bit. All of the timings are weird in my mind. Christmas 2016 feels like last month but my birthday (in April) feels like it was ages ago. Even though my distorted view of the year may say otherwise, it's almost over, so I thought it was only right to do my annual resolution's post. First off, I'll recap last year's...

-Get better at intros: To be honest, I think that this was achieved. The types of posts that I was writing really changed in summer, so it meant that intoductions were a lot easier. Before, it felt like the start of all of my posts were irrelevant (I accidentally typed that in caps, which was very appropriate!) filler before the actual main points. Now I think that everything flows quite coherently, and I hope that you'd agree.  

-Do pilates: This is something else that I can partially tick off of my list! Although I started strong, I kept getting ill…

All I want for Christmas Is (2017 Edition)...

I'm not too sure, but I think that this post has become annual. I'll link the other two if I can find them (last year's) so you can have a look at those complete cringefests. To be honest, I don't even know if I kept them live (editing El says nope): that's the level of atrocity they were at! Even though this post doesn't really fit my current writing style, I thought this could be a chance to redeem myself. So, welcome to my 2017 Christmas eve eve wishlist...



Happiness- Doesn't everyone spend their life in the pursuit of happiness? I think that if you don't, something in your life is going wrong, or has gone immensely right. Wrong, in the sense that I believe happiness should always be had and, if not, constantly looked for. Immensely right in a way that if you're not looking, I presume it's been reached: which would be fantastic! This year has been one with big ups and downs and although I don't really think life can ever be a constant up, …

What Christmas Really Means...

For this post, I've teamed up with Abby from 'Teenagehomedder'. I saw on our group chat that she was looking for someone to collaborate with so immediately volunteered. Her blogmas sounded so great, especially once she had given me some of the ideas that she'd had for what we could both partner up on. One, however, stood out: 'What Christmas Really Means'. It really made me think about what points could be made.

I know that Abby is a Christian, which will mean that her views- from a fundamental stand point- will be immensely different because, for a lot of people, including her, Christmas is a religious celebration. It's a day in which we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and all of the things that he brought into the world (can you tell that I don't take philosophy and ethics anymore?) I think that the way Christianity looks at Christmas is so beautiful. Holding any sort of view which allows you to add more positivity and depth to life always seems so…

Things I love About the Season...

The first time I listened to Christmas music was the 25th of November. I was trying so, so hard to wait until the 1st but the temptation was too much. Mariah and her Christmas wishes were just calling (singing?) my name and, ever the people pleaser, I had to answer. I flung the Christmas door wide open and let all of the metaphorical tinsel, mince pies and elves spill into my room. I needed Christmas and all of the magic it brings with it. I've officially given in to all of it (there is 22 days until Christmas, after all) and indulged in all of the things I love about the season...

- From- pretty much- birth I was convinced that I hated coca-cola: I remember having it at someone's sixth birthday party and being completely repulsed. However, on the 12th of April 2017 (a date that I am determined to commemorate annually) I had my first sip in years and loved it! Ever since the, I've been addicted to any, and every, type of cola... it's a slippery slope! That discovery led…
