25 facts about me

A couple of weeks ago in my new years resolutions post, I promised myself I would start blogging more. Well it is no surprise that I have already failed so far, with attempting to blog more often.

However, the year is still young and there are still 337 days to make up for my lack of blogging and of course improve on actually doing the things on my resolutions list.

Besides blogging I thought I might try something a little more out of my comfort zone. I've always felt a bit timid about looking younger and sounding younger than my age, however I thought a great way to build on that confidence was to try and start video blogging. I'm not the most talkative person, because I rather enjoy listening to others than speak myself, however i think for my doing this little video project on youtube is a great way to build on my self confidence and communication skills. Not going to lie talking to yourself in front of a camera, can be a little nerve wrecking and a bit awkward.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this video and that it gives you a little bit of an idea who I am :)

Until next time!!

Out with the old and in with the new. A new year a new beginning, is something i'll be looking forward too. For a while now I've kept on telling myself that this is the year i'll finally start blogging properly, starting with my gap year back in 2012. However ever since then, two years on thats something i've definitely failed too do, So here i am 2014 still living and breathing making blogging one of my resolutions. I've been wanting to blog for a while now and this is the year i'll definitely do something about it with some motivation and aspiration! 

With 2014 being a good week in, i've decided on a few simple new years resolutions that I hopefully can full fill.

To begin with, this year I hope to start off by blogging more often, I haven't really decided on what specifically, but i'll just let nature take its course and see where my brain and writing will take me.

Stress less: When it comes to work, everyday things and previously even school work I'm a bit of a perfectionist. I'm one of those people that once shown I want to get it right from the word go. High expectations are never good, and sometimes isn't even healthy. I'm one of those people that unfortunately need to get everything done as perfectly as possible otherwise I feel like I have failed my self in some way. However it'd not healthy to put so much pressure on yourself, and like most humans ( sometimes I question myself if i really am one) it's only human to make mistakes, there is no such thing as perfection. 

Drinking more water and eating healthier is definitely something i need to add to my to do list. It's easy with out busy lifestyles to take time out for our selves and looking after our bodies. On top of that i'm not naturally a thirsty person and tend to sometimes forget to drink. Living in Australia hydrating is definitely a must do!

Last but not least Motivation.
I'm sure i'm not the only one in this boat, sometimes finding the motivation to do certain things without a groan can definitely be a task. So instead of telling myself i'll do this later or i'll do this in twenty minutes. I'll try to shrug off the little procrastination elf on my shoulder and tell myself to toughen up.

So three/four reasonable and in my eyes achievable resolutions.
Let me know what you guys are hoping to achieve this year!
