You may have seen my bucket list already.
It is a crazy list but one way or another I hope to complete what I set out to do in the long-term.
Now, that brings me onto what I have set out to do this. I’m probably may or may not achieve these aims but all these aims is what I have in mind for 2017.
Become and Stay Loyal To My Job
I am very thankful to have a secure job at last. I’m going to commit a whole year to this job without thinking about applying for full-time jobs. I’m going to show everyone at the company that I’m not a one trick pony and I can remain loyal and that has a wide range of skills to offer. I am overly ambitious so let’s see what promotion opportunities the company has on offer. Already, I have completed three months that I’ve been in the job and I’ve not been dissatisfied.
2. Learn and Develop my Knowledge on Foreign languages
I have already started Italian. Ciao! I want to be able to learn some more Italian and build my knowledge on that. I just love the language. As well as that, learning French is also a MUST and German is good for its criteria, Swedish would be a bonus.
3. Build on my own Self-Confidence
A friend on Facebook suggested for me a while ago to get therapy help. I was quite fond of the idea at first but I was building on my own confidence so I’m glad now that I am not following up on that idea as I don’t feel that is the right help I need. At the end of last year, although I started a new job and quite pleased on getting paid. I still wasn’t having much confidence in myself. Slowly but surely I am hoping to build up my self-confidence. I can maybe set high expectations upon myself but if you haven’t got any expectations or targets then upon that there is no motivation. Without motivation then what is the fulfilment of life? I am what I am but some of the things I need to do is somehow remove negatively that is surrounding me, be better prepared and just accept there are failures and I need to somehow correct those faults.
4. Opportunity to watch a day’s play at Lord’s
One of my biggest interests is Cricket. Having loved cricket from an early age and an enthusiast of the sport it would be a dream to go to the Home of Cricket and be able to watch a Test Match. I have already signed up to the Lord’s ballot this year and got tickets to watch England against Ireland in a ODI and England against the West Indies on Day One of a test match. I have brought tickets for the first four days. It’s on my bucket list so I’m glad I got one objective complete from the bucket list.
5. Go travelling
This is by far one of the most ambitious aim in mind because I need to do this at some point and I never travelled anywhere really nice so it will make a change I suppose.
I have written down a shortlist of places I want to visit. It’s more of a Bucket list to be honest lol. If anyone wants to accompany me then feel free to contact me.
I doubt that this would be achieved but I know that the England Cricket Team are going to play at Australia at the end of the year and I can’t really resist much temptation of going to Australia and experience it firsthand. It’s not the idea of watching the test match that interests me but “ME IN AUSTRALIA, THAT’S EPIC”. Not only just being in Australia sounds good to me but to spend Christmas and New Year in Australia, that’s something you don’t expect. If you told me that a year ago, I would have said you were crazy.
There is a song I like very much like called “Live While We’re Alive” by Måns Zelmerlöw and that is basically what I want my life to be, making the most of the opportunities that we have in life. Before I can do any of that, I need to find a partner or mates to accompany me to Australia before I can plan any plane or hotel bookings. I’ve already registered my interest on a site called Travel Buddies and LonelyPlanet so I want to make this wild dream to be a reality. As I am writing this, I found some England Oversee Tour websites which will enable me to travel with fellow cricket lovers.
6. Search for Romance or Love
One of the ways that I can feel better about myself is finding someone who is willing or wanting to give me a chance as I would if I was giving someone else the same opportunity. I have found dating/romance as a bigger struggle then finding a job which is quite frustrating. Having said that, there is a rare gem lurking out somewhere. This is my time now to reach out.
This time last year, I took a chance by travelling to Dublin, it wasn’t the outcome that I would have wanted but the experience is only to make me stronger and I’m going to learn to expect the unexpected.
To feel better about myself or one of the main ways of improving my self-confidence is by searching and seeking.
I’ve visually observed people’s futures when they stay single for a long time and I can’t see it being enjoyable, pleasant for them. I truly feel it’s dull and a shell of themselves if they haven’t found the right person.
I want to improve my life for not being single.
I don’t really know who might come along but I want to be inspired by my partner to be independent, ambitious, be adventurous and many other things that can come along with those qualities otherwise it’s going to be a struggle.
7. Try and Take Better Care Of My Teeth
I brought a new toothbrush for Christmas last year, the OralB 9000. I am wanting to make sufficient changes to my lifestyle including to avoid junk food as much as possible and fizzy drinks. I am wanting to prevent gum disease, avoid bad breath and limit the amount of mints I take as possible. I can’t say it’s not been too bad. I am only taking one mint per day at least and clean my teeth both morning and evening on various settings of my toothbrush. But I know that this is a long-term thing which is not something I’m proud of as an Aim.
