New Years Resolutions 2017

I’ve never been one for making a solid New Year’s Resolution and sticking to it, but this year I plan to change that.

When caught up in the whirl of expectations entering a new year it’s easy to forget that you should continue to do things for yourself. Things that maybe won’t result in a massive reward at the end, but will simply bring you some form of happiness. So if you’re looking to read about life changing resolutions that will inspire you to make your own then this probably won’t help. I just wanted to share with you three small new years resolutions that I know will make me happy, and I would love to hear yours too!

Now, there’s the obvious resolutions such as lose weight (which I should do), be healthier (which I also should do) and of course to be a better person in general (probs should do that too), but for me, these are resolutions that roller coaster up and down throughout the year anyway. This year I plan on making just a few small simple changes that will bring me a little spirt of happiness.



Now I’m hoping that by the time this post is live i will have already completed this resolution. This is one that the more I think about, the less likely it is that it will actually happen. Resolution no.1 is to get my nose pierced. Agh!

There’s now been three separate occasions where I have gone out with the intention of getting my nose pierced and either got in the shop and talked myself out of it, or not even made it through the door (yes, I am the biggest wuss). But this time I will do it. I know it’ll be over so quickly and once it’s done I will love it so much. But as always, it’s the build up that is the worst part. So wish me luck guys and gals.


My second new years resolution may seem a little boring, but hey ho. As some of you may know I’m in my first year studying as a singer at the Leeds College of Music, and so far I haven’t put myself out there in terms of getting gigs around the city (this time not being a wuss, just lazy). Leeds is such an amazing and thriving city to live in and to have a gig here would be great. With most gigs, once you’ve had one, you’ll get heard by more people and (hopefully) get more and more gigs out of it. Well that’s my theory anyway. I’ll let you know how that works out.


Aaannd onto my final resolution for 2017…

Stop being a granny.

Ok, so this is a weird one, but i am your ultimate 19-year-old 91-year-old (that’s a thing right?). Like most people, I just love a cozy night in. But, unlike most of my age I have been known to refuse many a night out to sit and slob in my pjs. Yep, shameful. I know that once I’m out I always love it, and I have improved a little since coming to uni, but I’d say there’s still room for improvement. It’s just the getting me to go out that is the problem *rolls eyes*.

Being at music college is intense to say the least so going on a night out is never at the top of my list after a long day at uni, but this year I will make room for work, sleep, and socialising… (she says). Power naps will become my best friend.
