New Year’s Resolutions | 2017

Hello again,

Here are the new year’s resolutions that I’m going to be attempting to stick to this year.

No more fizzy drinks

I don’t drink fizzy drinks at home because I never buy them and would always pick iced tea or water over a Coke if I had the choice. However, when we’re in restaurants and Cem orders a Coke I always end up getting one myself. Bad life choices. I drink a lot of water anyway but hopefully buy cutting out fizzy drinks I’ll drink even more.


Start assignments early

This is going to be the hardest one. I really want to start all of my uni assignments as soon as possible, preferably on the day they’re set, while I’m motivated and the information is fresh in my mind.


Read more books

Throughout 2016 I didn’t read as much as I usually do because I have been a lot busier than I usually am. However, in 2017 I want to plough through my ever-growing reading list before it becomes unmanageable. I’ve been reading Dark Places on and off for months now so I really want to finish it. I used to read a new book every few days so I’m not sure how I managed to get so behind…


As always, thank you for reading.

I hope you had a great new year! Let me know what your resolutions are…

  1. I want to read more books too this year. I read dark places, then saw the movie, it was so dark but I’m glad I read the book first.

  2. I don’t drink fizzy drinks. But I don’t drink water either. I am always with the coffee in my hands.. So I really need to join you on that one. I hope you will get really good marks in Uni!

  3. cutting out fizzy drinks made a huge difference for me. Now whenever I have a fuzzy drink, I hate it! Good luck on your goals and I hope you get to read some amazing books this year!

  4. These are great resolutions – I love making them and looking at my life and figure out things that I go do to be a better person.

  5. I wish I would drink as much water as you. I don’t actually like soda but I love things like ice tea, lemonade, coffee, redbull etc. I need to work on drinking more than the usual 32oz of water a day.

  6. All really great goals! I need to be better about drinking more water too but I can’t give up the fizz so I stick to carbonated when I get the craving!

  7. I really want to plan better. I am awful at planning and starting things in advance! It’s like I enjoy the pressure of last minute LOL!

  8. Joining you -and all the comments below- at no more fizzy drinks and starting assignments early xx

  9. Starting assignments early is a great resolution. I get stuck doing work super late because I never want to start until like 10 PM haha!

  10. I stopped drinking fizzy drinks when a medication caused me to not be able to taste carbonation anymore (strange, but apparently it’s a common side effect!). I was initially SO gutted, but it turned out to be the best thing! Now I drink so much water and tea! Good luck!

  11. I have done the complete opposite this year! I usually drink a lot of water but so far I have been indulging in the fizzy drinks, I need to go back to the way I was before!

  12. My biggest resolution is just get started on all the things I put off last year. I can’t do them perfect but I can do them!

  13. I’ve never been one much for fizzy drinks but I do probably eat too many sweets, so I’d love to cut back on that and load up on more greens! Good luck with 2017!

  14. I love seeing other people’s resolutions. I just want to live more positively, that’s it. I think it allows us to do more, especially when it comes to treating people with respect. I love your goals, we always have time to read books if we allow ourselves to.

  15. Oh man I would love to be healthier this year. That’s one of my biggest goals. I’d love to take out all of the sugary drinks and replace them with more water.

  16. These are pretty straightforward and attainable. Maybe a good alternative to fizzy drinks would be fizzy water to keep it interesting

  17. I would also have a hard time cutting out the fizzy drinks if others were ordering them. Good luck to you in all of your goals!

  18. “Read more books” I think that is always a worthwhile goal! I am going to try and do more reading this year. I already read a lot, but at the end of the year last year it definitely fell off quite a bit.
