12 Things In 2012

The new year is almost upon us and randomly on my last post got the idea to get 12 things I want to do in the upcoming year. I will be honest. I haven't thought about these before and will be on a whim as I write!


I want to learn how to knit. Actually, I lie a little... This one I wanted to do BEFORE the year surpassed but I never got round to it. I would love to know how to knit so that I may eventually learn how to knit myself a cute little scarf or jumper! I think I'll start with a scarf.
Never learnt how to! Still don't know how either.

I want to take a day trip to France or somewhere in East Europe like Holland or Belgium. I want to do this with my boyfriend because we spoke about this and it's on our list. The choice is where to and when!
We ended up going in 2019 to Belgium. Only took 7 years...

I want to paint more. I've been painting a little something special for my boyfriend for our anniversary on Sunday. It's not yet finished but will be by Sunday! He made me realise how much I miss painting. I thank him for that.

I want to get back into University for the final year! It's the last thing I want to do... It's the only thing I need to do and then I can actually be qualified for my career choice! I really need and want this... So this is a chance thing, whether I get in or not... I don't know. I've just paid for my application too! YAY!
I didn't go that year but I finally went and now I get to do what I always wanted to for a living.

I want to go to a ceramics/pottery cafe and paint my own plate or mug. I love this idea, I went once ever for a birthday party and painted a cute little mug with a pink bunny on it but it broke a few years back. It's a place where you go, and you pay for whatever you want to paint... you paint it and then you pick it up later when they've fired and sealed it. Such a great idea.
Never did it. Meh.

I want to finish my Pokemon game. Okay, weird one I know. But I bought Pokemon Black last year and started playing it... and I stopped... and then I never got round to going back to it. So I want to finish it... Because it's a great game really and I miss it!
Did that! Check.

I want to let off a Sky Lantern. This is a cheating thing to want to do it 2012... Because me and my boyfriend are going to do this New Year's Day. I still want to put it on the list because once I do one thing on the list... It'll make me want to do the rest!
Another thing I managed to do! Very happy about that and it was really lovely too.

I want a better diet. I do eat a lot of crap, and I don't really care much. I realised how much of a bad thing this really is and decided that next year I will TRY better. I know I won't go completely healthy because that's not me. I just want to eat better... more fruit because I love fruit, more water because I don't drink enough. That sort of thing.

I want a tidy room. I don't have one... Never really did. I did the clear out I said I would do, but I think I still need condensing. So next year I really want to keep on trying to get more organised and tidy. It is not good to be messy if you have someone special you want to move out with eventually...

I want to handle money better. I will be paying off more things this year in a way to gain more independence and learn to deal with money issues on my own. It's for the best of my growing up part.

I DON'T want to change. I realised yesterday that I stress myself out too much with stuff that doesn't matter like my job that I don't have to take home with me and family and home things that aren't really my problem. I realised that I haven't been being myself and that I need to be. I don't want to be one of the girls who change to suit their situation. I want to be who I always was and who I should be because I shouldn't change for anyone. No one likes drastic change.

I want to have another great year. I have has a great year apart from the very few ups and downs. One thing comes to mind especially, and I'd like to think that the year has been good to me for it. So, I would like to say, 2011 has been very good to me.


Is there anything you want to do that's special or sort of a new year's resolution in the new year?
