I've scrolled through many corny summaries of 2012 on Facebook and Twitter, and personally I don't intend on reflecting on my year in a puke-worthy way of people I've loved and lost and the greatest lessons I've learnt from the mistakes I made (To be honest, I'll probably make those mistakes again). I want to focus on the following New Years Resolutions because they're an excuse to keep me on the straight and narrow.
*One of my main priorities for 2013 is to carry on with my crime novel. I'm not sure if I'll get it finished, but keeping it alive is of utmost importance to me. I started writing my novel a couple months ago and a few chapters in other priorities got in the way. I've only had a handful of moments since then to carry on what I started- But it's all about finishing what I started. Having the book published will be a lot of hard work in itself, so I have to focus on baby steps to keep me going! I just don't want to keep saying that I'm an aspiring author for years on end.
*Being the extremely awkward and complex human being that I am, I have the ability to take the synopsis of an everyday 'situation' and transform it into a killer article. 2013 will be the year to try my hand at freelancing for magazines. I believe in my work, but I know the competition out there is out of this world. Hopefully, a chance will be taken on me.
*If you know me well, you know that Giuliana Rancic is my idol and one day her job is going to be mine. No ifs not buts. Showreels and practise are key for this year. I'm not planning on jumping into the deep end, because live interviewing is still fresh territory for me. However, having foundations in my solid writing work I know I can succeed in this media sector.
*Every year my ultimate resolution is to lose weight. I want to change that this year. I just want to be fit, healthy and to look like I work out. I can safely say that I can't resist a slice of pizza or a bite of a burger and will never get the long lean limbs of Miranda Kerr- but a shorter, curvier body will suffice.
