2011: My biggest year to date?

As mentioned in my previous post, 2011 will possibly be the most life changing year I experience to date.


1. I turn 21 years of age in March (26th to be precise!)

2. I will, all going well, graduate in the summer hopefully gaining a first/2

3. I will be leaving Leeds, and my family home in Cheshire, to live with my boyfriend in the South.  I have been waiting for this a veryyy long time :)

4. As long as number 2 above occurs, I shall be starting my graduate job in September at (no naming names) one of the top graduate employers in the country.  I had an internship with them this summer and enjoyed it immensely.  I do realise how lucky I am to be in this position with a job offer that I had since the start of third year.

I fully realise I am about 2 weeks late with my new years resolutions, but hey you can make resolutions at any time. 
Here are mine:

1. Tell my family, friends and especially my boyfriend how much they mean to me regularly.

2. Get a healthy balance of working out and eating better.  I do not want to lose shed loads of weight but I would like to tone up a bit and be a healthy size 10 (I'm about a 10 now but with flabby bits!) - I also want to get fitter than I am.

3. Work hard to achieve the best.

4. Finally grow long healthy nails without the aid of fakery!

5.Have fun! Enjoy life!

No more (blog) neglect!

Nearly 6 months of blog neglect I am back...

Over the summer period, I grossly neglected my blog due to no access to my laptop (I was living at my boyfriends without my personal laptop and did not want to use my work tablet or his for blogging), then 3rd year at university began.  I spent semester one having a lot of work, but still didn't feel like I had a lot of free time to dedicate to my blog.... Although I managed plenty of blog stalking and tweeting!

Anway... It's now Saturday 15th January 2011, sometime in the afternoon.  Slap bang in the middle of examination period.  After an exam yesterday and another one this morning (yes: a Saturday exam) I thought why not? 

What do I have to lose by starting blogging again? Nothing, but more importantly:

What do I have to gain from blogging? A documentation of 2011 (possibly the most life changing year for me), a way of procrastination (not just exams, but a getaway from other things) and being able to chat to some lovely people.

So here goes. Time to start blogging again.
