What 2017 Looks Like For Me

My last post looked at me creating a ‘Fuck Budget’ for 2017. A plan of giving less fucks to things that aren’t worth it and more fucks towards things that are. Whilst writing this I reflected on all of the great things I’ve achieved this year and began to get excited about how 2017 is going to go. And let me tell you, 2017 is going one of two ways. Either I’ll achieve everything I set out in the remainder of this post, OR you arseholes will decide you’re over me, no-one will read my blog or care about me any more and I’ll fade back into the ethers from whence I came. PRAYING that that doesn’t happen, I’ve set myself some goals that I’d love to see materialise over the coming months. Part of my Fuck Budget was about not caring about followers so I’m not going to set numerical goals because let’s face it, there’s never enough people gobbling your blog cock. But here they are anyway…

Put On Successful Dating Events

I already have THIS ONE YOU CAN AND SHOULD ATTEND in the works and I’m in talks with a few other venues to bring a new, exciting way of meeting and dating to the people around me. I’m just hoping that they don’t BOMB. Because that would be embarrassing. If I can sell them all out and people can have a great night in my company AND I can meet new people, my heart will be so frigging happy.

Continue Writing Drivel

Let’s face it, there’s no point other than entertaining myself in the majority of my posts but because attention is like crack, I want to continue writing posts that get people talking and sharing.

Get YouTube Off The Ground

I kinda dabbled with a  channel. In that I mean I’ve boshed out 3 terribly edited and lit videos. But next year I want to get some lighting and a proper editing set up so that I can bring you ‘Date Night GRWMs’ where I do a chatty getting ready video about a date I’m going on, general chatty videos and vlogs and of course STREET DATE. Hit me up on Twitter if you want to know more about that. And if you want to swing a Macbook my way that would be faboosh too.

Finish My Book

This summer I wrote 30-40 pages of a book that I’m really proud of. I think the concept is great and I really have loved what I’ve done so far. I just need to finish the bitch and pray someone fancies getting it out there for me.

Complete My Course

I’m currently at uni (whilst working full time I KNOW PASS ME THE GIN RIGHT?) studying a course on being a Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator. It’s a job I’ve fancied for a while and if I can’t fulfill my dream of OMFG UK’S EXPERT ON TINDER FUCK BOYS then it’s a solid back up.

Be Happier Within Myself

Turning 30 gave me a completely new lease of life when it came to how I perceive myself. It helps that I’ve surrounded myself with people who love me and build me up. But there’s a heck of a long way to go before I’m 100% SISSY THAT WALK FIERCE YO.

And some crazy goals that are unlikely to transpire but let’s put it out into the universe anyway…

WIN THE LOTTERY, Put out a new dating app, work with a huge dating brand OR CREATE MY OWN.

For any of us, the sky is really the limit. If you can think of it and visualise it YOU CAN FUCKING DO IT. So start serving some of that, ‘I’m a bad ass bitch and I’m going to KILL LIFE’ realness and get your goals in sight.

    Ok so I almost spit out my tea laughing at “there’s never enough people gobbling your blog cock”! You can do it gal, these goals are totally achievable! Would love to see some YouTube videos from you too, one of my goals for this year is to really work hard on my channel as well!

    Those are great goals! I haven’t thought of exact goals to achieve in 2017, but I want to do some craft courses, get out & about more and meet new people.

    I hope you have a wonderful new year. All the best for 2017!

    Love these! Especially your own self happiness. It’s so easy to struggle with your own self happiness sometimes in a world of ‘perfect’ social media, here’s to putting our own self happiness first in 2017!

    SO exciting that you’re writing a book – I can’t wait to read it! Remember me when you’re a best-selling author, yeah? 😉 xx

    I love how ambitious but also achievable these goals are! I’m trying to finish more books myself! I find that I always start them and never finish… oops.
