New Year’s resolutions seem to be synonymous with good intentions which turn into failure, so I don’t make them. I’m pretty stubborn and won’t do anything that I don’t want to do and I’m pretty sure that’s part and parcel of being an adult. So there.
So this year I’m making a list of wishes. I reckon 2013 will be a great year for me and I’m pretty hopeful of this, for no real reason apart from there being parts of my life I want to change and my stubborn streak will make sure this happens, come hell or high water, unless something more amazing comes up!
So here they are, my wishes for 2013!
A new home
I currently live with my family, who I love to pieces obviously, but sometimes close relatives can do your head in much more effectively than anyone else.
I know exactly where I want to live and exactly the kind of flat I want, so at least I’m aware of what it’s going to cost. I have about half of the deposit saved, and a budget set up to save the other half, so I’ll hopefully be able to move in the summer.
A new car
This wish has kinda been forced upon me. I LOVE my car. I know that the radio doesn’t work properly and the boot lid won’t stay open so I sometimes get a surprise knock on the head when I put my shopping in there, but it’s also really cool to look at and goes fast.
So when the nice man in the garage told me that I should seriously consider getting a new one next year, I was disappointed. Yeah I’d like a nice new car with low emissions and fuel costs, not only with a radio that pickes up a signal everywhere but maybe with bluetooth or iPhone connectivity, and a heated windscreen to save me scraping the ice off by hand, but the sexy Celica is my baby.
I know I’ll have to exchange my car for a shiny new one, so my real wish is that the new one is as ace as the old one.
After my first BlytheConUK last year, I’m so very tempted to head to New York for BlytheConUS. I’ll be going to the UK one in Glasgow (obviously!) but I need to start booking this trip in the New Year. I only know one person from the UK who might be going, but I might have to go on this adventure alone (except for my dollies)!
A lovely boyfriend
I think it’s time to get back in the game. My previous boyfriend and I split up in early 2012 and I haven’t really given my love life a second thought until recently. Don’t get me wrong, I’m in no hurry, and I won’t be kissing all the frogs to find the prince, but it’d be nice.
That’s not much to hope for eh?! Any other suggestions? What are your wishes for 2013? Tell me, in the comments, just down there ↓
