New Term, New Me

This week has been really busy. After returning to school with a first week of rehearsals, I’m now back rehearsing and studying. Honestly, I don’t know how I can keep up with myself. It can be hard when you are a student, a YouTuber and Blogger under one belt but once you get used to it, it’ll all be fine.

Since I have started again for the Spring term, I have decided to renew myself by scheduling a life plan. It was recommended to me by my Support Worker, after we discussed what targets I would like to achieve within the Next Year. Sounds like a good idea, but it’s not as easy as you think it might be. All it takes (normally) is courage and inspiration. To do that, all you have to do is open your inner self.

Life isn’t easy, nor is a personality change. And is taking the easy road the only option in everyone’s lifetime? In reality, it’s not because when you think about it, changing yourself can be a new self discovery. The world has available choices for us; to decide who we want to be and what we want during our lifetime. And they don’t call it a challenge for nothing. Most famous people we know had to face many challenges to get where they are today. So, why should we let our same, old selves get in the way of our dreams?

Although I am in the middle stage, I feel that I want to carry on and explore myself a bit more. Studying, fashion; you name it. And I want to share this journey with you.

So, here are my top new changes I want to do this year.

Read a Good, Commutative Self-Help Book

Already got it in the bag. 😉 At the moment, I’m reading Be Your Own Fairytale by Alison Davies, who helps readers gain their confidence, through fairytales. Very good, and highly recommend it especially if you are into fairytales.

Keep a Journal

Again, got it in the bag. I always keep a few journals, plus my blog.

Try to Reach Out of Your Comfort Zone

Going through this process, at the moment. But mostly in Drama school. I want to try and be the best I can be, by going out of my comfort zone.

Be Inspired

This aim is a tricky one. However, I’m trying to be inspired by reading. I’m keen to study characters who have silmar lives to me like Harriet from the Geek Girl Series and Penny from the Girl Online Series. Then with the situations they go through and how they deal with them, I can reflect mine and see how I can resolve them as well.

Write a Life Plan

Nearly finished on this one. Before I started, I found a very useful How To page by wikihow that gave advice on how to draw one up:

And I’ve never looked back.

Try to Be Honest About Myself

A work in progress.

A new me and a new start. An excellent progress if I do say so myself.

Now, it’s over to you. Are you looking to start any new targets? If so, what would you like to achieve and why? I would love to hear your aims for this year.

That’s all for now and don’t forget to look out for my YouTube channel and blog this February for new posts. 😃


What Are My Aspirations For the Summer Holidays?

As well as writing a Bucket List for the summer, I also have aspirations to keep my life on track – and to keep healthy.

In the past, I have never kept my health up to date; mainly because I’ve been busy and pretty lazy. So to change my ways, I’ve decided to keep fit and take on health classes. I decided to try:

  • Zumba
  • Aqua Aerobics
  • Swimming
  • Badminton
  • Walking
  • Gym

I’ve already tired Zumba, Aqua Aerobics, walking and swimming; I really enjoyed these classes, and activities and will return to them within the next week.

I’m going to look at fitness activities when I’m away on holiday and see how much difference it’ll make when I reach September.

Also, I’m going to try to cut back on food by eating healthier. All my loved ones have told me that stomachs are about the same size as a human fist and it’s very important to listen to your body; it’s like another human being only it lives inside of you. So, I’m going to try and cut the limit of starch, unhealthy main meals, desserts and snacks. For breakfast, I’m to have three slices of bread instead of four, have occasional unhealthy food (either once every two – three weeks or once a month), and try my best to eat more vegan and vegetarian food.

So, that’s it – that’s my aspiration for the summer. Do you have any aspirations for this summer, this year or next year?

I hope you are all enjoying the rest of the summer (or the first week if you live in the UK).
