Happy New Year! Hope you had a lovely and fun night welcoming in 2015. Did you make any resolutions?
A lot of people don't bother with resolutions - or at least I know a lot of people who don't - because they know that they won't do them. I use to make resolutions and that was indeed the case. This year I have made myself goals, which I know kinda seems the same as a resolution, but if it is a goal I know I will work toward it.
Lose a stone and a half - I know, tons of people say they are going to lose weight when the New Year hits. Well, firstly my focus is on getting rid of this weight I gained over Christmas. I ate a lot. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed everything lol but now I want to get back on a healthy eating kick. My aim is to be a stone and a half lighter by the end of November 2015. I have 11 months. It's possible.
Finish writing, and publish Blood Book Two - I mentioned this in my last post of 2014. So, you already know this is my main aim for this year.
Start writing Blood Book 1.5 - if somehow I am able to complete this novella and have the time to put it through edits etc and release it, I will.
Read more - Self explanatory, but I am waaaay behind with my reading. My TBR pile is huge.
Join an amateur dramatics group - I have already set this plan in to motion by enquiring with the local theatre groups. Why do I want to get involved with a drama group? I originally wanted to be an actress - something that I decided when I was five years old - I had this want until about 5 years ago. I wasn't confident enough in my talent or appearance to actually follow this dream of mine. So, I didn't. At the time I was writing like crazy, so my attention turned to the written word, which I don't regret. I love writing, but any time I watch a good programme, film, or even a live show I will find myself thinking, "I bet it's amazing to be a part of such a programme/film/show." So, I've decided to go back in to drama and see how I feel about it. Wish me luck. It's been a while since I performed.
So, they are my goals for 2015. All achievable.
What about you? Do you have goals/resolutions for the year? Do you feel they are achievable goals?
