2014: The year of growth.





New year resolutions aren't usually my thing but I figured that there's a lot in store for me this year and a few goals won't do anything but help, to make sure I keep to these goals I'm thinking of doing update posts every month or two.

SAVE
Christmas has bought me to the realisation that I do not handle money well, I spend it quicker than I get it and I just can't resist. To help me save I want to start up a bank account since the only one I have is a savings account in my mom's name and since I'm turning sixteen this year I should get a job while I'm at it!

GET INVOLVED
Sometimes I isolate myself, I just feel a lot safer that way. This year though I want to step out of my comfort zone and get involved with people I wouldn't usually and in activities I wouldn't usually involve myself in, no excuses. This is mainly because I'm leaving school this year and while I do go to social 'events' a lot come summer there will be a ton more some including people I'm maybe not familiar with.

STUDY
This is a big one for me, because I never really have to study for tests a habit of mine has been not studying. In 2013 my interest and attention in school started slipping dramatically and a week before a big mock, I had to cram cram cram just to scrape a B. Even with all that effort I felt like it was nothing special, but it certainly was. So for 2014 I plan to pay attention and study. Maybe now I'll get straight As!

DO CHORES
Now, just in case my mom stumbles upon this. I'm not gonna turn into Cinderella pre ball, but I do want to help out a little more, not long until I have to do these things for myself, I may as well do some washing once a week.

ATTEND
I used to obsess over going to school, 100% attendance was a must but recently (now I'm praying my mom doesn't find this) I've been pulling sickys and my desire to be at school is just non existent and how's that going to look on my sixth form application? Not just school, recently I've been skipping dance class more than I should. Unless I'm ill, that needs to stop as well.

SLEEP
I feel like the reason why I don't pay attention so much in school is because I'm tired, so tired. I know I don't get bored because studying is never boring (It's not fun either though). I think the easiest way to clock in a few more hours would be the weekends, and maybe set a goal to get to sleep before midnight two times a week, before eleven two times. Also if I stop going to bed at five am then I feel like this would help, a lot.

I realise there's a lot to think about here, but hey, it's only day one of 365.

*cough* or day three.
