News Year Resolutions


Part I

Hello strangers, HAPPY NEW YEAR, WELCOME TO 2014! You haven't heard my voice in a while and I guess it's because I'm really consumed AND confused recently with school so all I've been doing is posting videos I've found interesting and that, in some ways, is also a voice but perhaps less direct. 2013 wasn't the best year for me let's say, I can't complain about my health being bad or being bullied but I felt extremely lost. My surroundings were changing so quickly and I still felt like a child. However, all this said, I went to Berlin, Paris, Sao Paulo, various regions in Holland, Oxfordshire and had amazing times with friends. I am looking forwards now unto a gleaming 2014 and with all the mistakes I've made I have compiled a list of resolutions I want to abide by, a mix-tape if you will of the soundtrack to this new year. So... without further adieu... here's my mix-tape:

1) Read. 
I feel too dependant on things like Sims3 and iPlayer nowadays which completely take up my time and meanwhile I become more out of practise therefore I am finding it harder and harder to read. Books are amazing and when they are good there is nothing comparable and therefore I must teach myself how to read properly once again. I'm fine starting books, it's finishing them I find difficult. 


2) Look After Myself Aesthetically and Health-wise
Even though i try I don't think I take enough pride in my self appearance nor do I pay attention to my body's need for water and vitamins. This is going to be quite a big lifestyle alteration process. 


what I want people to say about me: 



3) Memory Jar
I know this sounds extremely nooby but when I came across this on tumblr I thought that it was a really good way of remembering all the good things that have happened and I can keep it for when I'm super famous and they want me to write an autobiography. It's basically a lazy version of a diary.  Also linking on from this I want to do more things so I can fill this jar with interesting anecdotes because I don't just want to wait until I'm 20 to have fun, now is as good a time as ever.

instructions:"Start on January 1st with an empty jar. Throughout the year write the good things that happened to you on little pieces of paper. On December 31st, open the jar and read all the amazing things that happened to you that year."


4) Stand Up More For What I Believe In
There are so many things I am sick of in this country and elsewhere in the world and I feel like I (along with the rest of my generation) are becoming way too submissive about stuff. I don't want to be so wishy-washy anymore and actually speak out. It's hypocritical of me to moan about things if I'm not making a conscience decision to try and change them in any way I can. It's like people complaining about politics when they don't vote.




Part II

I SAW THIS BEAUTY IN REAL LIFE AT THE LONDON WOLF OF WALL STREET PREMIERE! (I also saw my man Jonah). Maybe I'll do a bit more about this topic in another post.





Part III

If you like Bjork you have to listen to this song she sung when she was 11...


Part IV

I am just way beyond excited for the premiere of Season 3 Girls which you can catch on youtube apparently 12 hours after release!!! As well as this Lena Dunham is going to be on Graham Norton next week. You can never have too much of a good thing.
