Anyway, I don't know if I've ever mentioned this but I love writing things down to motivate me to do anything. I have one notebook which I write down all my to-do lists, one for all my goals/dreams for the year, one for creative ideas and thoughts, my diary and finally my blog which is another outlet for me :).
Since it's the end of the year I decided to write in my goals/dreams book to see how far I'd came that year. I wrote an entry really late last night summing up 2010, just writing whatever came to my head. I don't usually show any of this stuff to other people as it's a bit lame aha, but I thought I'd share it here:
2010.Although I did not achieve all of the goals (or barely any of them) that I had set out to do, I still achieved a lot this year, so they're the things I'm going to mention.
I learnt to drive, set up my own campaign, have kept my blog running a year, got through my first year at uni, and my best achievement has to be getting Millie and knowing she is relying solely on me.

I also organised the entire trip to Amsterdam, learnt to be a stronger person, to admit when I'm wrong and apologise, to learn a lot about the beauty community and to adapt to new situations.
Although I haven't lost weight like I aimed for, I went through major periods of fitness DVD's and running, and learnt to be wiser with my money.
Sometimes I learnt things the hard way but I have still learned. I have came to realise you should do what you like and not what you should.
I found a good job and met some cool people there. I was in a newspaper article and got to spend my last summer with Smudge which I adored.

So my room is still a state (another goal fail), but it's still vastly improved in organisation.
I made 'adult' like steps this year too into the big bad world; I set up direct debit for contact lenses & a phone contract, as well as managing my own finances fully.
Some parts were hurtful or cruel, such as assholes trying to put me down and Smudge and Poppy dying. In all these moments, it allowed me to see my true friends and the supportive people in my life.
Life can be harsh and make me feel like quitting what I'm working hard for, but it can allow me to do some amazing stuff too.
The biggest lesson I learnt is: believe in yourself & trust you instincts.
Ta-da :'). Am I the only sad person who writes things like this...?
