It’s my birthday today folks! Today I turn a year older and possibly start ticking a new box in the age range section. As much as I panic when I feel that my age is surpassing my life, I’m forever thankful, because so many people haven’t been fortunate enough to make it this far. So happy birthday to me!
My birthday falls at a time when people start thinking about what their plans will be for the coming new year, and making their resolutions. I stopped making new year’s resolutions years ago, because I didn’t really make them wholeheartedly, I was just copying everyone else. However, after reading my fellow blogging buddy Bim Adewunmi‘s post on her round up of 2012 along with a ‘to-do’ list for 2013, I had a lightbulb moment and decided to do one of my own. I work a lot better to lists you see…
So my list of things to do/achieve in 2013 is as follows (but not limited to):
This goes without saying really! I’m going to make sure I can find more inspiration for posts or create my own inspirations.
Add the letters ‘MUA’ to my title
For the longest time I’ve spoken about wanting to learn make up artistry, so that I can then become freelance, and now that one of my close friends has just become an artist for MAC after teaching herself, my motivation is even stronger.
Get the guy
All I’m saying is that it’s about time to end this single status, so I need to see clear signs and proactivity from ‘him’.
Launch my websites
I have two websites in the pipeline. Work has already begun on the first one, and the second is still in the ideas stage, but I’m excited about it, because it will be about a subject I have realised I enjoy.
I have at least three trips abroad booked in my head for 2013 and I want to make sure I am able to book them with the airlines!
Find consistent work
In order for me to book those intended holidays, I will need the funds, therefore one thing I need to do in 2013 is work consistently (preferably doing something I enjoy) and make enough money to keep me comfortable at least.
Tackle new opportunities
There are a couple of new projects I have been approached about and I intend to learn more about the areas they involve that I don’t feel 100% confident about, because those who have asked must think I can do it, right?
Wow – I’m going to be busy!!
What are yours?
