New Year, New Start

We're already one week into 2015, and I'm still in the process of attempting to organise my life! So what do I want to achieve this year? I guess you could call these New Year Resolutions, but I never keep those - so I'd rather just call it my to-do list! (who doesn't love a good list?) 

"I love New Years. I love the fact that I'll be leaving a whole year behind me, no matter if it was good, bad, or average. I like that kind of closure. I love this feeling of starting over again and having a fresh year ahead of me, filled with new chance, new experiences."

Drink More - No, I'm not a closet alcoholic. I'm talking about drinking more water. It seems obvious to keep our bodies hydrated, yet drinking water or any drink for that matter is something I've struggled with for a long time. It sounds silly, how can someone forget to drink water? Honestly I've no idea, but I think it'll do me a lot of good! Here's to being healthier!

Positivity - This year I want to continue to surround myself with positivity and positive people - I get a lot of inspiration and motivation from people who make me happy. I'm going to be 25 this year, that's a quarter of my life (if not more!)... and I guess over the last few years I've grown to accept that it's okay to choose who you spend your adventures and your life with. I personally don't have time for people who have either a negative effect on me, or don't want to be here on my journey with me. However I do have a lot of time for people who make me feel alive, happy and inspired. Positivity is contagious, and unfortunately so is negativity.

Sleeping Routine - This one for me will be the hardest. Ever since I stopped secondary/high school, my sleeping pattern destroyed itself. It didn't help that most of my jobs before YouTube were bars/pubs and had late hours - so I'd always get to bed at 2am, and I guess that just stuck. Working from home sounds glorious, and in many ways it is - but part of me wishes I had to get up at 8am like people who have jobs outside their home. I've always called myself a night owl, I get most of my motivation in the evenings, and I've often found myself up at 3am most nights - this has to change somehow. Wish me luck!

Wanderlust - Ahh wanderlust, something I never thought I'd get - the desire to travel and see more of this world we live each day on. This definitely began in 2014, and I want to roll it over into 2015 too. Luckily for me I'm starting this year off by flying to America for Playlist Live in February - I'm extremely excited. Where else do I want to visit? Who knows. Italy, France, New York, Australia... The world is literally my playground. And as much as I hate the world yolo - you DO only live once, and I want to see more of this planet before I leave.

Work Hard, Play Harder - I've always worked hard, but I this year I mean serious business. I started 2014 making 1 video a week, I then boosted that up to 3 a week for a while! So what's on the schedule for this year? Well, I'm definitely making videos every Monday and Friday. Where has Wednesday gone? I felt like I was slacking on making my videos good to make sure I stuck to my schedule since July - and in turn lost some of the quality. So Wednesday's are now dedicated to this blog! Yes, weekly blog posts here on from now on! In fact maybe even more than one, I do enjoy writing and photographing things. I want to stick to this schedule this year! If I have extra videos I may upload more than 2 a week (party popper!) 

Another thing with uploading less - something I haven't spoken much about, is my noggin (head) - it's still not right after my accident in Egypt - leaving me feeling sluggish and more tired than usual, and I still have dizzy spells. So I'm trying to be kind to my brain until I see a specialist or it miraculously fixes itself (fingers crossed!) 

Appreciate - I consider myself a very grateful and appreciative person anyway, but I feel as though I don't tell you enough. I wouldn't be able to do so many of the cool things I do if it wasn't for you. If you take the time out of your day to read my blog, or watch my YouTube videos - then here is a THANK YOU for you. I know my online family has grown a bit over the last two years, but I do value each one of you, I really do. I may not reply to everyone, but I do try to see as much as I possibly can - but most importantly I know you are there. Yes, even you.

So here's to 2015, I hope it's a good one filled with super amazing things, and you'll continue to come along with me! 

Stay happy, and I'll see you here next week!
