A year has passed, which means that it is time for some new years resolutions. Although most people find them silly, I like to have a goal. By this time next year I will take a look back to see how many of these goals I’ve achieved. Do you have any new years resolutions than please let me know in the comments. I think resolutions are a good way of trying to improve your life. My life will be changing a lot this year and some of my new years resolutions are connected to these changes. Anyway, here are my new years resolutions for 2016.
Take more free time
This may sound strange, but I want to have more free tome next year. I work three days a week; I’m still a student at University and I’m trying to develop my blog and YouTube channel. As a result I don’t go out much and when I’m home I continue working. I want more time to start drawing, reading, etc. Mostly I want to spent more time with the people close to me. So I’m going to try to be less of a workaholic and a better planner.
Play more video games
I write a lot about video games and I play the video games that I review. However, I don’t have much time to play the video games that I buy myself. Therefore I want to find more time to play some of my favourite games :).
Graduate from university
I started my MA in Literary Studies in September 2014 and due to some issues I had to postpone working on my thesis in order to finish all my courses first. I’ve finished all my courses and now I only need to pass my thesis. I’m going to hand my entire thesis in at the beginning of januari. Hopefully I won’t have to edit much so that I can graduate at the end of januari. Wish me luck.
Work more on my blog
I started this blog because I love writing about the things that I like. So far blogging has been something that gives me a lot of joy and I really want to continue with this in 2016. I don’t exactly know what kind of blog I want this blog to be. So maybe I can figure that out in 2016.
Re-design my YouTube channel
I love making video’s about video games, but due to time restraints I cannot film complete playthroughs of video games. I’m still trying to figure out what kind of videos I want to make for my channel. All I know right now is that I want it to be related to video games, but maybe I’ll add a few vlogs as well. Who knows. I need to figure this out in 2016 :).
I’ve had little time to read this year, eventhough I love reading. Moreover I find it difficult to sit down and to just focus on reading and nothing else. When I’m at home I tend to multitaks and you cannot multitask while reading.
Work on Certificates
This one is work related. I currently have a job in IT, which is really odd considering that I study English at university. However, at my job I can take small courses and study to get certificates that will be useful for a job in IT. I have the opportunity to gain more knowledge about the branch that I currently work in and I plan to take full advantage of it.
Do more yoga
One of the things that I gave up when I had less and less free time was sports. Although I have a lot of back problems and muscle aches, I don’t really like working out and the gym is quite expensive, So I stopped working out altogether. This is ofcourse very bad and I really want to change this. When I did yoga twice a week I noticed that my pain almost completely dissapeared. So I recently bought a yoga mat and I’m going to try to do some excercises at home.
Restore natural hair
This may sound weird, but I always hated my hair. I had weird, frizzy hair while most people have easy, straight hair and I always found this very unfair. Recently I started to read more and more about hair care for curly hair and I came to the conclusion that I had never been taught to take proper care of my curls. Ever since I started using the right products and going to a hairdresser who specialises in curly hair, my hair has become healtier. It started to curl more and friz less. In the past I would always straighten my hair, because I hated it that much and although I’m still not ready to get rid of my straightener, I don’t feel like using it anymore. Hopefully in 2016 I will continue on this path and maybe by this time next year I will have long and healthy hair.
These are all my new years resolutions for 2016. Hopefully I’ll be able to make some changes and to achieve these goals.
