The Remainder of 2016

Has your life ever done a complete 180 in the small space of a week? Because mine just has, and I'm absolutely loving it. I think the next 2 years for me are going to be tough, challenging, enjoyable and rewarding, but it's also made me think about how I want to maintain balance.

As a student social worker (that's the weirdest thing to write..), it's been drilled into me all week that having down time and doing what YOU want is crucial. But actually, I don't think that just applies to emotionally exhaustive jobs, it applies to us all.

So here's a few things I want to do with the rest of 2016..

1. Read more. I've recently fallen out of love with reading but I know it's something I love doing. However, now that I'm getting the train in Birmingham everyday, it's an easy time for me to read more.

2. Scarefest. I've already booked tickets for this but I'm so excited already to be going to Alton Towers for Halloween!

3. Christmas market. I know, I know, I'vementioned the C word but I'm going to be starting my shopping next month haha. I never buy anything really at these markets but it's such a nice way to spend time with good company and start feeling all festive.

4. Explore Birmingham. As I'm now in Birmingham 4 days a week, I feel like I need to explore more than just the shopping centres. I'm positive there has to be some hidden gems lurking in around the touristy mayhem.

5. Audition for a lead role. I've just finished performing in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and I loved it so much that I think I want to try out for a bigger part in the next show that we do. So watch this space!

6. Spend less time on social media. Quite self explanatory really, but I'm going to become far busier and I don't know where that leaves this blog however as long as I'm enjoying the 'real' world, I'm not actually too bothered right now.

7. Stop buying unnecessary clothes. And finally, STOP WATCHING YOUTUBE HAULS BASICALLY. I'm so bad at seeing something on someone and buying it when I know I wouldn't buy it if I just saw it on the hanger. It needs to stop!

Yes to 1, 3 & 7! If I spent less time on social, I'd be out of a job. There must be more to Birmingham than epic shopping centres but I absolutely want to visit the Bullring soon!
