272 is the number of the house I grew up in. It’s also 272 days into 2016.
At the start of the year I made a list of things I wanted to achieve in 2016, some of which included the following
Saving 9 grand but the end of the year – I think I was a little optimistic when setting this one, although I did pretty well on the saving front until I brought a new car which cost me all of my savings. 2016 isn’t over just yet so I’m hoping to save a little more the rest of the year.
Tone up and Stay Healthy – I haven’t done a great job at toning up, I think I’ve definitely become healthier and I’m more aware about what I’m putting into my body. At the start of the year I got into a really good routine of working out to help tone my body, but after 10 days away in a canary island where all I did was sit on the beach and eat delicious food. The routine faded and I struggled to get back into it. Motivation is key and it’s safe to say I’m seriously lacking in it at the moment.
Drink More Water – I’m super proud to say I’ve actually done this one, I HATED water before 2016, I wouldn’t even drink it if I was extremely thirsty, it was way to bland for me and I couldn’t stand the taste – purely because there isn’t one! Now all I drink is water and tea! I think this has something to do with working in an office 5 days a week but it feels so good that I’m putting something healthy into my body.
Festivals & Concerts – The festival season is now over and I’m a little gutted, I’m a big fan, although I really haven’t had the chance to go to many this year and I still have some pretty big ones on my list. This year I managed to see The 1975, Sleeping with Sirens, As It Is and went to the festival Slam Dunk.
To sum up 2016 so far it’s been pretty naff, I feel like it hasn’t been a good year for anyone, we’ve lost a lot of stars and as far as I’m aware gained nothing!
My goals for the rest of the year:
Save Money – I’ve decided to not set an amount, I’ve spent most of this year so focused on saving maybe I need to spend a little more and treat myself.
Get into a better routine to get shit done – Stop procrastinating Chloe!
Go out more – majority of my nights are spent in my room watching Detective murder programs or reading fairy tale love stories – not exactly the best way to spend your life at 19.
Be happy – the most important.
It’s now Autumn so I’m quite excited for the rest of the year!
Let me know how 2016 has been for you and the exciting things you’ve got up too or how terrible it’s been!
