New year Resolutions I'm not going to keep

Every year I write a list of resolutions that I always seem to be unable to keep for more than a couple of days. So this year I thought instead why don't I just write a list of things that if I don't keep to I won't worry about it.

Happy New Year Everyone!

It has been a continuous thing that I write I will make and keep a study schedule and year in and year out I never keep to one. It's not like I don't study. I do. And sometimes too much. But my head is never in the same place at the same time so some days I get back from university and can get multiple pieces of work done and other days all I want to do is take a nap. So this year I think I'll stay away from a scheduled study plan and the stress I feel when I don't keep to it and instead focus on studying for at least a minimum time each day.

Another thing that I told myself last year was that I was going to get a job, well that definitely didn't happen. I know I should look for a job and in time I will but I don't want to force myself because it's what everyone else expects of me. Things like my fear of social situations make it much more of a big thing for me than other people say it should be. So for this year, I'm not going to promise myself to get a job and if I do find one well that would be wonderful.

This year I'm not going to make myself the resolution to reach a certain amount of followers on either my blog, Twitter or Instagram. Though it would be nice to reach certain numbers, I'm going to make them smaller goals throughout the year instead so I can fit it easier around the time I have to focus on my blog since I still don't know how much work university is going to throw at me. This also will let me focus more on putting up what I want rather than what I think others want to read in order to reach numbers on a screen.

Surprising this blog post has been a rather difficult to write. As the years have gone on I've made less and less new year resolutions so in return I have less that I'm not going to promise myself to achieve. These three seem to reflect mostly on the ones I wrote last year if you want to read that post you can find it here, and maybe because I didn't keep them they have ended up on this side of the resolutions scale.

But anyway have you made any resolutions for the new year? I might possibly write mine on Twitter this year if I think of any so if you want to find out you can always give me a follow over there. Or are you going to focus less on new year resolutions and instead make goals throughout the year. I like that idea more I think since then if something unexpected comes your way or you reach a goal early you can change the goals up.

So before I sign this post off Happy New Year!
I hope this year turns out to be a good one for you all. Let's make 2018 a year to remember for all the good reasons ^^.
