As you know we are over half way through 2016 (sorry what? when did that happen?) and boy is it going quickly. My dad always used to tell me when I was little that the years go quicker as you get older and he was not wrong. As you may know I recently graduated from university (Graduation Post Here) and its made me think about what I want to actually get out of the rest of 2016. My main goal at the beginning of the year was to basically complete my final project and graduate which have both been checked off the list. So naturally, I need some goals to work towards over the coming months. Having goals to work towards, for me anyway, increase my motivation towards something and stop me slacking. Here are a selection of goals which I have set myself…
I am someone who is pretty confident in the way I look and believe you should accept yourself for the way you are BUT one thing which has bothered me for years is my teeth. In all honesty I hate them and have wanted to sort them out for years and only now have I made the decision that Im going to do something about it. I don’t have the worst teeth by any means but teeth are something which you first notice about someone and I personally don’t want people to look at my teeth and think ew not going near her. So I have actually booked an Invisalign consultation to get this ball rolling and hopefully I’ll be able to tick this one off the list within a few months.
Now that I have begun a blog and started to really enjoy creating posts for you beaut readers, the next thing to do is to build up a following. Im not expecting my following to build over night but I’m hoping by the end of the year I can get to around 100 blog followers which would be a lovely end to the year. Its just a case of working hard on my blog posts and keeping you lovely readers interested.
As I said before, I recently graduated from university and the next step is to get a job/internship. Now its been a little harder than I first thought and I have probably applied to over 100 internships or jobs hoping that someone will want me. However I am not helping myself as firstly internships are the way to go before getting a job and I wont do one unless I know that I am going to enjoy it. After working so hard during university to do something I enjoy, the last thing Im going to do is work somewhere I will not enjoy. Im still applying for things and Im feeling optimistic that something good will come up soon, Until then you’ll be seeing lots of blog posts from me.
Since being at uni, one of the things I have been terrible at is keeping in contact with friends from school/sixth form and theres not really an excuse other than I got a little carried away with uni life and didn’t really think about home. I have actually reconnected with a couple of my friends after 3 years as it was like we were never apart. Those are 100% the types of friends you should never let go. Now that I have moved back home its going to have to be something I work on as my uni friends don’t live round the corner anymore so I am going to have to keep in contact. This is probably one of those which needs work but I’m working on it, I promise.
I began to learn to drive at the end of June and I so badly wish I had learnt when I was 17 and only had college to worry about. But learning to drive is something I need to do at some point and whilst my mum is still offering to pay for it, Im going to take the opportunity. Its going okay so far, Its quite tedious and I do have to push myself to want to do the lessons but it will all be worth it in the end, hopefully. Im not expecting to Pass by the end of the year but its a goal I’m working towards.
By achieving my goal of getting a job, will come the meeting of new people (I hope anyway). I absolutely love meeting new people and cannot wait to have some new people in my life, especially as I am begging a new chapter. I hope that I will be able to check this one off and be able to focus on my other goals.
Anxiety isn’t really something I really talk about but ever since I began my final project at uni, my anxiety has increased. Its not the worst anxiety out there but it does effect things I do and the way I feel at times. BUT I have been working on ways of dealing with it myself and finding ways of making myself feel comfortable in situations. Luckily it hasn’t got worse but I want to be able to control it and have less panicky situations but I guess that all comes with time. If anyone is interested I will do a post about my anxiety?
