New Year's Resolutions 2015

Happy New Year everyone!

Last year my new year's resolutions were pretty successful on the whole, and they were a good motivator for getting things done (especially since I shared them on here!). I thought I'd do the same again, so this is what I hope to do in 2015:

Get Shit Done

1. Focus on the things that are important to me
With apologies for sounding cheesy, 2014 brought with it a lot of life lessons, some of them quite harsh, and I feel like I have a better understanding of what matters most to me: my family, my friends, my degree and potential career plans, staying healthy, and working on this blog. Those are the things I want to make time for.

2. Speak up

I'd be the first to admit that I'm terrible at speaking up for myself. I'm shy and introverted and I get worried about what I might say, even if I know exactly what I'm talking about. This year I want to push myself to step outside that comfort zone and actually say something. My creative writing classes will be the perfect place to do this; we're always discussing each other's work.  

3. Get more work experience

This was one of my resolutions last year, and it proved to be an excellent stepping stone towards knowing what I want to do with my life. This time I want to take things a step further and maybe get some kind of internship, although I'm not sure where yet. I just want to keep learning! 

4. Get stronger

When I first went to uni, I lost a lot of weight due to stress and exercise wasn't a priority; I just didn't have the energy or the motivation. I did a few gym sessions here and a few gym sessions there, but nothing consistent. As I began to feel better I started to become interested in fitness again, and gradually built up to doing more and more. I stopped going to the gym and started doing Blogilates workouts instead, which I much prefer. This year I really want to increase my upper body strength (it's dreadful) and my core strength, and maintain the strength I have in my legs.

So those are my goals for the year! Do you make new year's resolutions? What are they? Let me know in the comments!
