CHANGE YOUR LIFE: New Year's resolutions and bucket list

Hi everyone! this is the very first time I’m writing something to post on my tumblr so I don’t really know how this is going to turn out and I hope I don’t suck at doing these kind of things (have to say that I’m feeling both nervous and excited while writing this! I don’t know why!!!!).

As the title of the post says, I’m going to tell you my new year’s resolutions and my bucket list, which I have just written while having a lovely cuppa. The thing is I’ve been wanting to do this for a long long time and recently I have gone through some issues and my life has been a bit of a roller coaster –sometimes up, many times down, going really really fast and having loops and twists in my head constantly– so I decided all of these needed to change, spice up my life and stand for me and what a better time than at Christmas when the New Year is about to come and somehow we tell ourselves that this new year is definitely going to be different. Well, mine WILL actually BE DIFFERENT and this is the main thing I’m promising myself. No more bullshit from anyone or anything. I’m just going to do my thing and what I really please. I know it will be different because I’m actually feeling it (I know it sounds weird but I really do!) this year I turn 18 and graduate from high school and apply for college and this will hopefully bring me the opportunity to MOVE ON from all the drama that has been surrounding me in the past 6 years and I’m quite happy about it to be honest :) And you know what? If you believe things will change they will actually change!

Sooooooo let’s begin with my new year’s resolutions! There aren’t many because I don’t want to pressure myself. There are only 365 days to get all this stuff done! Here we go:

  • Turn 18 (achieved on January 18th)

  • Cry from laughter

  • Get a tattoo

  • Read The Spectacular Now

  • Graduate

  • Run during 45 minutes

  • Make my parents proud (achieved on January 26th)

  • Have tea with my fav sister from another mister (achieved on February 5th)

  • Spend part of my summertime abroad

What do you reckon? I think it its something to strive for this new year and who knows? Maybe I will achieve them all because everything depends on me and nobody else but me :)


  • Visit ALL the continents

  • Be in two places at once (achieved on April 16th 2014)

Everybody has a dream and if you want it bad enough then sure as hell it will become a reality :)
