Stepping into 2018 - Goals, Targets and Things to look forward to

2017 was such a busy year I ticked off a lot of my goals without even trying to, I completed a dissertation, graduated with a first still in complete shock, got my first full-time job, AND moved into my first apartment! Phew, busy year. 2018 feels different, I don't have any plans made for me, like graduating, and no major life decisions to make, like moving into my first flat. If I wanted in 12 months my life could be exactly the same, which is a comforting thought but also scary because this will be the first year of my life without any kind of full-time education. With that in mind, I have a few things I'd really like to make more time for this year, there are a couple that have been on my list for a while, here's hoping 2018 is the year. 

Taylor Swift 

Ok, so I always joked around with my family that one of the major perks of getting a full-time job after graduation would be that if Taylor Swift ever went on tour again I'd have the money to be able to go. Well ladies and gents, one stressful Friday morning and an eye-watering amount of money later, I'm going. Having been a fan for well over 10 years this has been a long time in the making and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't seriously excited, my seats are way up in the gods but I don't care, it's Taylor at Wembley in June and that's exciting enough for me. 

Flying sans parents

Something my parent have instilled in my sister and me is our love of travelling, we've had so many adventures and without a doubt as a family there are so many places left on our list, but this was a goal of mine last year and I didn't quite get round to it, but I'd really love to go travelling on my own this year. I'm not sure where yet, I've got a very long list but I'm thinking of going on a weekend break in February to stretch my legs a little before I attempt anything more adventurous. So watch this space and if you have any recommendations for me please let me know! 

Making the most of my gym 

I'm lucky that I have the most amazing gym right on my doorstep and I absolutely love being a member there, the classes are great and the trainers are super helpful. In the new year (like everyone else I'm sure) I'd really love to make the most of it, I love the classes I go to are great and I always feel it the next day but there are so so many different classes and after reading Carlys fitness post I'd love to see what difference I could make to my fitness if I changed things up and made more of an effort to go. 

Blogging 

A big part of 2018 for me is going to be about nurturing the blog, writing about things that truly interest me and focusing less on the materialistic side of blogging, expect a lot more career and university focused posts with some more fashion thrown in there too. I've written a content plan for the first few months of 2018 and if I can help it I'm going to try and stick to that as much as I can. I've been really lucky to work with some great brands in 2017 to bring you content that I truly love, in 2018 I'm hoping to go back to my roots and why I started this blog in the first place and I'm hoping you'll all enjoy reading it as much as I'll enjoy writing it! Any content requests please let me know by emailing theinterndiariesxo@gmail.com
