New Year's Resolutions 2014

To be honest I'm pretty rubbish at sticking to resolutions, so rather than go for the usual generic ones like 'be more healthy' (not currently possible with all the Christmas leftovers!) I've set myself four goals that I think are realistic and achievable.

1. Write something every day, even if it's not much.

I want to get into good habits, since I'm doing a creative writing degree, and who knows what I might think of?

2. Continue to write my blog and improve it.

I might make a couple of changes and include a few more lifestyle posts. I'm not sure what yet, I just fancy mixing it up a bit.

3. Read Jane Austen's books.

I've been promising myself since the age of fifteen that I will and 2014 is the year I'm going to stick to that promise. I've already started Northanger Abbey and Pride and Prejudice is next on the list.

4. Get work experience.

This is my plan for the summer. I know I enjoy writing but I'm not sure what I actually want to do when I finish uni, so I just want to see what's out there  I might find something totally unexpected. I'm only in my first year, so there's less pressure, but as I'm constantly being reminded by my parents, the media, and pretty much everyone I meet, employers want graduates to have a degree and experience. It certainly won't hurt long-term to have tried different things and it'll help me discover what really interests me, career-wise.

Have you made any resolutions for 2014? Feel free to leave a comment if you've done a post similar to this one, and happy new year!
