SETTING GOALS FOR 2017

Happy New Years Eve! We are so close to having completed another year and boy has this year sped by.
I am one of those people who set themselves New Years Resolutions. I love the whole 'New Years, New Me' ideology as it allows me to start from a clean slate and we all love a clean slate, don't we?
This year I have set myself  what I hope are achievable goals. However, one thing I love doing before setting myself new year resolutions is to look back on my goals from last year, which you can read about here.


I have achieved most of my goals such as revising, going to a different country and even loosing some weight! Some I have partially completed such as, reading the Harry Potter Series (I've read two), I've saved up a few pounds, read 17 books as opposed to 35 AND have expanded my blog a bit.

Now it's time for my 2017 goals:

BULLET JOURNAL FLIP THROUGH 2016

2016 is over! With the year coming to completion, my bullet journal is too. To mark the end of the year, I though it was only fair to show you guys a complete flip through of my first ever bullet journal.
I started this journal in April and cannot believe I have stuck to it for so long. I honestly cannot see myself without one any time soon as it has completely helped to organise my life.
You have seen some of my bullet journal already as I have posted one flip through that spanned the first couple months and I have also filmed and written some 'plan with mes.' So without further a do I will show you the video and some pictures, which will be below the video.

FIVE GOOD THINGS FROM 2016

First of, let me start by saying Merry Christmas! I hope you had an awesome day and ate till your hearts content.

2016, the year that most of the world wants to forget. With many things occurring globally that we rather wouldn't, I'm going to try and look on the bright side of what is undoubtedly quite a crap year so I am going to pick out Five Good Things that Happened in 2016. Bearing in mind I don't have an extensive list of 'good things that happened to Georgia in 2016,' so coming up with this list is going to be difficult.

1) I GOT INTO UNI
Yes, I did get into university last year but this year meant a but more to me because I really did try and I accept that the university I am at now is probably where I am meant to be.

THE CARD GALLERY: REVIEW

Ever since I was small and the school helpers used to come round with cards for everyone, I have loved receiving Christmas cards. I remember my mum used to stick them up all over a wall in our kitchen and it looked so beautiful.
Giving Christmas cards now has become less frequent as our generation is growing as they just don't seem to be very sentimental.... until The Card Gallery.
The Card Gallery offers personalised cards* for 90p each, with 10p from each card going to three charities: Macmillan Cancer Support, Dogs Trust and Acorns Children's Hospice.  Not only does this mean that you are giving to charity this Christmas, you are also giving personalised cards.

PASSENGER AT THE BRIGHTON DOME

In a month that saw Brighton battered with Storm Angus and what seems like endless torrential rain and cold, Passenger playing at the Brighton Dome was all that was needed to warm me up.
Having never been to the Dome before, I was pleasantly surprised at how classy and big it was; it even has a mezzanine!
Opening Passenger was Gregory Alan Isakov, from Colarado, USA. The crowd, including myself, absolutely loved him. With a husky voice that melted everyone’s core, Isakov sung himself through a half an hour set with just his guitar and to be honest, that was all he needed. Granted, not many people were there to witness Isakov but those who did, like myself, will forever remember his voice and go see him when he comes back to the UK with his band next year. Telling jokes half way through, his accent was on par with his singing. Singing about love, loss and his travels Isakov was a perfect opening act for Passenger.
As soon as the half hour interval was over between Isakov and Passenger, the Dome was thriving with people eagerly anticipating this amazing headliner. The audience ranged from children to older adults. This was very surprising as you would imagine Passenger to have a bunch of teenage girls in his audience but I was actually sitting next to a big group of beer drinking lads and behind a middle-aged couple who danced to every single number.

DECEMBER BULLET JOURNAL SET UP AND PLAN WITH ME

Hello everyone, for Blogmas Day 2 I am letting you in on my Bullet Journal. Today's sneak peak is going to be my December Set Up. Since it is Christmas this month's theme is very red and well, Christmassy. 

For my December memory page I thought to not go with the classic Christmas tree/ snowman and instead go with a bauble, which I never hardly draw.

THE DIABOLIC BY C J KINCAID REVIEW

WELCOME TO BLOGMAS! I for one cannot believe it's already December; it feels like yesterday that I was participating in blogmas last year!

Whilst travelling between university and home on the train, The Diabolic was a perfect book to read on the those cold lonesome journeys.

Diabolics are man made humanoid killing machines. Set in a dystopia version of space, each elite human has a Diabolic. Nemesis is a Diabolic and she is unconditionally bonded to Sidonia Impyrean and she will guard her with her life and protect her till her last breath.
When Sidonia's father angers the Emperor, Sidonia is summoned to what only can be inferred to as her death. Sidonia's parents send Nemesis in her place. The problem is, Nemesis is a Diabolic and Diabolics were ordered to all be executed by the Emperor himself.
Nemesis is therefore thrown into a world where she is pretending to be someone she isn't. She is torn between being who she is and who she may be. Does she have a soul? Is she more human than she thinks? Well, you'll have to read it and see.

The Diabolic explores the craziness of politics (very similar to the goings on in the world now), gender equality and a little bit of space.

Overall, The Diabolic is a lovely book and I sped through it in just two one and a half hour train journeys. The book is perfect for a teenage audience and I cannot wait to read more C.J. Kincaid.

Have you read The Diabolic? What did you think of it?
