How I’m Organising Myself in 2018

Spending some time organising my life is literally one of my favourite ‘life admin’ things to do. There is just no better sense of accomplishment than when you have organised yourself and can actually feel the benefits working in your everyday life. Because of my obsession with having everything ever written down or stored somewhere or other and knowing how easily distracted I can get leading me to forget everything, I’m actually not too shabby when it comes to organising myself and I do find myself actually enjoying the process setting up and filling out my bullet journal, finding uses for the riduclous amount of stationary I own and having a very neat and efficient iCal (if I do say so myself!).

Switching Off and Online Detoxing

I took a week off. A whole week. A whole seven days of not opening up my laptop, letting it gather dust for just a few days whilst I let myself recharge. I just burnt-out with blogging and social media and Instagram posts and scheduling and editing and I needed to step away. It was simple really – I think with the New Year I just started to feel overwhelmed, I hadn’t taken a break over Christmas and had continued writing, photographing, scheduling and all sorts so by the time the first of January had rolled around, I needed to escape a little bit. So, after a day of feeling frustrated after not being able to string a sentence together or take a half-decent photograph, I switched off my laptop, closed the lid, walked away and told myself I wouldn’t open it till I was completely, one hundred percent ready.

Starting The New Year Positive

2018 is well and truly underway, even if, like me, you have no idea how it is already 2018. I have personally never been a fan of New Year or January as a whole, but this, I want to put a positive spin on it and start as I mean to go on. January is the perfect time for a new start but you don’t have to put as much pressure on it as it sounds. The last few years I have got rid of New Year Resolutions and stuck primarily to goals (see mine here) and that already has helped to take off the pressure of the New Year.

The 2018 Goals

I think that 2018 will be one of the scarier years I’ve had yet simply because I no longer have that comfort blanket of school, college or university. I’m still working part-time, which is my own personal choice, and I’m really enjoying how everything is working out at the moment, but there is definitely still that part of me that is a little bit apprehensive of what 2018 will entail.

Reflecting on 2017

Here we are. Just one day away from 2018. A brand new 365 days. A new start, a whole new bloomin’ year. The whole ‘this year has gone so fast!!!’ chat may be as boring as small-talk about the weather (corrrr, isn’t it cold?!) but that truly is it, this past year has gone incredibly fast and honestly, it doesn’t feel right to be sitting down and reflecting on 2017 already.

The Christmas Day Photo Album

Oh, Christmas Day. How I adore you. From waking up at a ridiculous hour in the morning because mentally, you are still a kid who just wants to open their presents and give the family the presents you brought them eagerly. To sitting down for the ever-so-famous and looked forward to Christmas lunch… turkey, pigs in blankets, telling the ridiculously bad jokes you find in your crackers, wondering which one of you got the red plastic fish that can tell you how you are feeling this year. Dusting off the board games and playing several rounds of Best Of British, realising you can only answer the questions regarding X Factor, I’m A Celeb and Lakeside shopping centre and drinking boatloads of prosecco to numb the embarrassment of losing again at Frustration.
