Procrastinating Again

Okay so I started out pretty badly this morning. I completely overslept after being awake talking to Jordanne until well after 3am and so had 30 minutes to get ready for uni today only to end up getting to my tutorial and doing very little as I had no questions to ask about the work that had been set.

 

So of course, me being me, I went onto Twitter and started just scrolling the way we so-called millennials are stereotyped to do. I came across a post (once again I do apologise because I can’t remember who wrote it or what it was even called) all about how 2016 wasn’t going the way they wanted it to so they decided to make a change. This hit home a little and got me thinking. Why do we always set a time to change from? Surely if we want to change, we should just jump in there – 2 feet at the same time.

 

Every year, around this time, we suddenly realise that in just over a month we’ll all be talking New Year’s Resolutions and the likes, and I always set them. I even manage to last maybe a month before I give up! But why should I wait until January 1st to make the changes I feel are necessary? And why do I assume I need to make changes?

 

Over the past 48 hours, I’ve done a lot of thinking about different things, and I got so wound up about some of it when talking to Jordanne last night, and this morning I found myself asking why I let these things build up for so long. I spent the first 8 months of 2016 being a bit of a mess. I decided I wanted to come back to uni and put the effort in and I’m doing that. The majority of the time anyway, yes I’m blogging now instead of studying but I can manage my time the way I want to.

 

I want to make the effort to be consciously happier. But why should I sit and wait for happiness to find me? It’s my responsibility to go out there, grab life in both hands, and make myself enjoy life. I don’t want to sit at the age of 50 and question where my life has gone and why I didn’t do this thing or another thing. This year, I want to travel more and see more places. Even just places in Northern Ireland and Scotland! It’s why going to Edinburgh for the day, or Aberdeen, or even the fact I’m going to Dundee this weekend makes me so excited! This weekend I have Dundee. Next weekend is a friend’s birthday dinner and I get to travel to a different part of Glasgow. Weekend after that, I’ve decided to take a spontaneous trip home – I miss the animals and haven’t seen my parents in ages. Normally that wouldn’t bother me but I just want to go home to a house that’s bigger than the flat for a few days. Anyway, I got distracted there. So I’m home for a while. The weekend after that is our flat Christmas dinner and I can’t wait to cook that and have fun with Mary, Nuala and Jason. The weekend after that? LONDON!!! I cannot wait to see Jordanne and the others and get to spend time with them, all while exploring a new place! The weekend after that, I will be home for my mum’s birthday (so more travelling), the weekend after that is Christmas. After that comes New Year, which I’m hoping to spend in Glasgow or Edinburgh. Weekend after that? Well, that’s the weekend before classes start again and knowing us we’ll have a welcome back party for our friends from halls. So that’s 9 weekends in a row I have at least one thing planned!

 

This has been a very rambley post, and for that I apologise. But I just wanted to update you all on what’s been going through my head recently. It can get a bit messy in there, and I never know how I get from one topic to another. So in conclusion, I’m so excited to be going home for a weekend soon, even if it’s purely to see my furbabies!

 

Hope you’re all well!

Wishful Wednesday

Hey! Please be patient with me as I try a few new things here on my blog, I felt like it needed a bit of a change up. Before I start, how are you today? I can hardly believe it’s only Wednesday, feels like this week has been going on forever!

Today I was up at 6:30am to get ready to go to my granny’s house to help her clean for my cousins coming over for this wedding. We worked from before 9am until at least 3:30pm so suffice to say I’m exhausted tonight. Legs are shaved, everywhere’s exfoliated, and I’m ready for my first ever fake tan tomorrow! Kind of excited, kind of nervous. Not sure what to expect. Have you had a spray tan before? Any advice you can give me?
Anyway, sorry, once again I have managed to ramble on! Don’t know why you let me do this, I must bore you to death with my ramblings (feel free to disagree). I decided to trial a theme for a few days of the week, ie Wishful Wednesday. I have decided to write a “wish list” of things I want to see or do over the next lot of months and hopefully you’ll be with me when I can tick these off!
Today’s Wishful Wednesday:

  • See Les Misérables live on stage, either on the West End or Broadway.

I’m sure over the last few months I have mentioned at least once my love for Les Misérables. The music, the story, everything about it makes me feel that warm tingly feeling course through my spine. I can’t watch it without crying at least once. Now, if I get those feelings just listening to the music or watching the film, imagine what it would be like on stage.
What would you put at the start of your wish list? Start big or small? Let me know in the comments below! Or feel free to tell me if you don’t like the idea of themed days, any feedback is welcome!
