As I’m sure you’re all aware, 2015 is drawing to a close (what a year it’s been!) and everybody’s beginning to look towards 2016. It’s around this time of year that people begin saying “new year, new me” and things like that that we all know are not true, I’m not going to say that, but I would like 2016 to be a year of change, which I think it will be, here are a few of my goals:
Do well in my GCSEs:
A lot of you probably know that I’m currently in Year 11, and that means that I will be sitting my exams in May, *scream* I’d really love to do well, I’m not asking for all A*s because that isn’t going to happen, but just good grades that I’m proud of on results day, obviously this is my main target for 2016, and quite an important one too.
I want 2016 to be the year the my Youtube Channel really grows, not just in numbers but in everything, on my side of the camera and on you guys at home too. I want to be really happy with the content I’m putting out and maybe try a few new things as well. Ultimately throughout 2016 I would LOVE to be partnered with a company, as I feel like that would help me so so much, but that is very unlikely, but I think that’s definitely a goal. In terms of numbers I’m not going to say anything specific because often it can be way out. My goal for this year was 1000 subscribers and I think its fair to say we excelled that. Maybe 30,000? I’m not setting any targets but somewhere around there this time next would be amazing.
My own Health + Fitness:
I am 100% guilty of that fact that I am not a healthy and physically fit person, I hold my hands up, I know that, I’m not saying I want to lose weight or anything along those lines just in myself I’d like to eat better and *maybe* exercise more, although that doesn’t usually end with good results, so maybe just the eating healthier part, although again, with exam stress and the general exam season, I’m not sure how realistic that is.
Grow my circle of friends:
I mean this online and offline, towards the end of 2016 I’m going to start at college, meaning that my current friendship group will (likely) split up, as much as I love them all, hopefully I’ll make a lot of new friends too
Recently online I’ve made a lot of friends too, fellow youtubers and also viewers, I was lucky enough to discover some amazing channels in the last few months, Eve, Hannah, Beckii,Jasmine, Sophie, Anastasia, etc and I would consider some of these people to now be my friends which has been amazing, so for that to continue in 2016 would be amazing.
Generally make memories and be happy:
I think this is a nice one to end on as I love making memories and looking back and thinking “that was such a good day”, hopefully 2016 will be full of these memories, amongst the stress of school I’m hoping I have a lot of laughs as well. Travelling is one of my favourite things so I’m hoping during 2016 I get to go to a lot of exciting places! I already can’t wait for summer because my family and I are going to America for 3 weeks when my exams are over and honestly I already know it’ll be amazing!
I’m sorry this blogpost is so long, I’ll be back with regular posts in the New Year (I’m going to London for New Years Eve, be sure to stay tuned over on my YouTube channel for some very exciting vlogs + videos!) I hope you guys are having the best festive season and I wish you all a very happy new year.
Thank you for being part of this incredible journey throughout 2015, it’s been one crazy hell of a year, online and off, and a massive part of my happiness throughout it is down to you guys at home reading this, watching me, tweeting me, you mean more to me then you know, so thank you
Here’s to 2016, I hope, 1 year from now I’m reading this back and thinking “you know what, it only got better” and hopefully I’ll see you all, and a load of new faces there too, 2016 – I’m ready.
Much Love, M x
