I started this blog just over a year ago now, after being inspired by so many other amazing beautiful bloggers and YouTubers. At first i was unsure of what i wanted to blog about, i thought beauty and fashion could be something i would manage as i had learnt a lot from other blogs.
But if I'm honest with myself thats not what i want to read or watch anymore. Its not what interests me and i don't feel inspired to put out that kind of post.
In my first post i spoke about how i was afraid to grow up and that i felt being an adult was forced on us a little to quickly, in another i spoke about my struggle with anxiety that had really knocked me down at the beginning of 2012. But since those posts a whole year as passed and i can see such a change in myself. Im not the girl i was a year ago, I'm now ready to be an adult and make something of myself.
By watching other YouTubers i have been very encouraged to live the life i want, and to make and create things that I'm proud of. I want to be able to look back at the start of 2015, read this post and say 'YES, I managed to create something I'm proud of and I'm glad i did it!'
I wrote a bucket list for 2013 on my blog and i don't think i managed to do half the things on it. So this years one is going to be shorter:
To Write, Direct and Act in my own short film.
As someone studying acting and performance, this is something i am very keen to do. Not long ago me and my friends from college started a YouTube channel called LifeOfADramaStudent (my last post is about it) and it is a personal goal of mine to make a short film and upload it to there. I do all the filming and editing at the moment for LifeOfADramaStudent and i really really enjoy doing it. A short film is a definite for this year!
To be more healthy and fit.
I know this is a common one for a lot of people every new year and I'm not sure how well i will be able to keep up with this one. It is something i would really like to try do though. I feel like i really need to be the person i want to be, on the inside and out. Which means i need to motivate myself for a healthy style of living. I have a very sweet tooth which recently i have been giving in to and it needs to stop.
Just to make it clear, its not my figure i want to change (although i wouldn't mind being a bit toned in places) its my unhealthy insides and risk of getting high blood pressure when I'm older.
To follow my instinct's and do what I want, NOT what other people want.
Lately I've realised just how rubbish people can be. People can stab you in the back, or just be plain mean because they think something that your doing is odd or a little embarrassing. But they can just go. Nope. Im so done with them. If i want to do something with my life and try to make some tiny impression on the face of the earth, then why can't i? If i want to make YouTube videos with my friends, write on my blog and make a short film, why can't i? Its not so abnormal now a days.
Thanks for reading.
I hope this inspired you to a make your own bucket list of things to do for 2014.
