So Christmas is done. All of you basic bitches got your Michael Kors watches and engaged and I got a headache from binge watching Jessica Jones. I also put some of my headache down to agonising over what 2016 could have in store. I’ll share…

In 2016 I will turn 30. For most women it’s that apocalyptic time bomb of, ‘SHIT KIDS. FUCK MARRIAGE. BOLLOCKS CAREER.’ And it probably would have been for me, if I was where I was in my life a few months ago. But as a single, independent woman who gets her life advice from BeyoncΓ© songs and whatsapp groups, I’ve got a slightly different outlook.

I want my 2016 to feature SUCCESS. I want a year of teaching where I’m left alone to get on with my job and not made to feel like the devil incarnate because I forgot to mark a Science book. More importantly to me, I want my blog to become a success. There’s a yearning here. One that screams, ‘write more, grow, go viral.’ And I want it. Bad. So hopefully 2016 will see more regular posts and better writing and photography. I want to keep making you guys laugh because it honestly makes my day.

I want my 2016 to feature TRAVEL. I want to go somewhere I haven’t been before. I’ve got a few trips in mind in the UK and it’s inevitable my twin and I will wake up in Vegas on our 30th but I want to grace my Insta grid with a different place.

I want my 2016 to feature EVENTS. This year I have been lucky enough to have been invited to a ton of great stuff, but I’ve had to turn down a lot due to work. Next year, I want to figure out a way to go to more things. Preferably whilst avoiding getting sacked.

I want my 2016 to feature FRIENDS. I’ve had a lot of transient people enter and leave my life. I’ve also had a fair few that have stuck around and a new few who have entered that I hope won’t leave for a while. 2016 will be all about being more social, making time for people and leaning on them when I need them.

I also want my 2016 to feature a lot of the following; curry, Netflix, musical theatre, boys, gin, cheese and Instagram likes.

Anyone want to help a sister out there?Β  What does your 2016 have in store?

    Loved this Vix! I want next year to be more focused on myself too. I feel like I’ve had such a crazy year this year and not really looked after myself properly! All the best for 2016 !

    I want my 2016 to involve insane amounts of money, Channing Tatum to call me and ask me out, a new house maybe and more than 18 subscribers on my tragic YouTube channel πŸ™‚

    You have to go to Vegas, it’s amazing! I was there in October. I recommend the Gran Canyon Helicopter tour, you land at the bottom for a Champagne picnic, it could be a memorable and classy way to spend your 30th πŸ™‚
    (There’s a post on my blog if interested)

    I’m gonna be 30 this year too and have to say i’m feeling you on all points! Vegas is definitely one on my list as is blogging more. This year I want to be a bit more chilled out as usually everything is on such a tight schedule!

    Great post πŸ™‚

    Great post and a great outlook on this year. πŸ™‚
    I’m 28 years old (for the 3rd time!). 30 isn’t a big deal. Haha! In all honesty, it really is just a number, but there is a slight stigma attached to the number..
    I’d love to go to Vegas! I should really put that on my bucket list for before in 4-0….
    Here’s to a fab year for you. πŸ™‚
