January Hmmmm.

It’s January 10th. I’m sat on the train and on my way back to Leicester. I’ve had a nice Christmas and don’t really want to leave – not the place, just the people.

Anyway, my point is that it’s January 10th. January the 10th and I’m only just deciding my New Years resolutions right here, right now on the train. Oops.

I don’t usually make concrete resolutions, I’m pretty easy on myself, but I’ve got to make them and stick to them this year!

Begin, shall I?

Climb girl, climb.

On my return to uni, I am purchasing my insurance card which allows me to join the climbing club, then I can climb regularly and hopefully gain more confidence, strength and technique. I’m afraid of falling, but the more confidence I get on the wall, the less I fear the height and the falling part becomes less likely to happen.

#HealthyGoals

This resolution just involves sticking to my healthy eating habits no matter where I am – maybe it will help others around me eat a little better too?

Less sugary temptations, more fruits and nuts!

Balancing the pounds

The pounds I refer to here are of the financial kind. I need to try my best to only buy necessities and just treat myself once in a while.

Easier said than done, but one of those money box challenges may help me save.

ZzzzzZzzzzzZzz

I must go to bed earlier, Netflix less and avoid napping during the day. Or just go to bed earlier.

Stress less

About everything. Maybe organising myself as much as possible will help, the more sleep certainly will too.

I shall focus on less things at once, tackling things one at a time, whatever they are, will certainly make life easier. It may also help me focus more.

That’s all of my New Years resolutions, or at least what I can think of right now!

I’m looking forward to climbing more and becoming stronger because of it.

I look forward to seeing the ones I love again soon, sucks being away from your favourite people.

Until next time,

XOXO

Hannah.

Although in this current moment in time I feel as though I may be fine, I know that in the future I will look back and see these as dark, poisonous days and that time when I lost my way.

The decision is final.

Today I went to the De Montfort University open day and if I wasn’t sure before, I am now.

Walking around felt far from daunting, it felt as if I were already home. The buildings are spectacular, the facilities are top notch and the atmosphere was great, I just wanted to soak up every last bit of it.

In order to see if I had made the right course choices I visited the talks for both of them.

The Journalism talk really sold me and when visiting the Creative Writing course it felt as if it were made for me. I could see myself studying here, I could even imagine the type of work that I could see myself doing there.

There is a perfect balance of academic and recreational activities, societies to suit my personal preferences and others that will better my performance as a student.

The city is everything that I could have imagined and so much more, the entire place suits my personality and not only could I see myself studying here, but I could see myself living here afterwards.

I know where I am meant to be and I know that DMU is for me!

Cross everything for me please and hope that I get in!

I love you all,

XOXO

Knuckles down.

Next week I go back to college for what feels like the millionth time and hopefully the last.

After realising that I do want to go to Uni after all, I know that now is not the time to mess about. This time is different, I am not a child any more and I will prove it to myself and others when I get my shit together this year.

I am going to be more organised and balance work, college and socialising as equally as possible. Getting sleep in between all of this will be hard, but it is possible.

This year I have two diaries, this should help with balancing everything and keeping up with assignments.

Starting the second year shouldn’t be too bad, there may be a minor speed bump with adjustment around the october mark, but that adjustment may help me to focus on everything once it has passed.

This year will be different, this year is the beginning of a new and brighter future. New career opportunities and eventually be where I am destined to be.

XOXO

Hannah.
