for the times they are a changing

Blwyddyn Newydd Dda Pawb!/ Happy New year everyone!

There is always such a huge build up to that one moment where the date changes from an 11 to a 12; a moment where you feel that your slate has been wiped clean so to speak; a moment where you can be somebody else. Everyone wants to spend this moment with those who they love in hope that they will be somewhat cosmically bound to stay as close throughout this new changed year. 
This year, I spent my new years eve behind the bar, pouring jagerbombs in fact, and at that moment I was alone, aside from the bottle of jagermeister I was clutching ready to pour and hand over to very drunk, very patronising and very happy customers. Now, if this romantic/poetic idea that who you spend this moment with will determine the rest of the year then surely that means this year i'm destined to be a lonely alcoholic? Feeling slightly skeptical about this as I don't feel very alone (despite how little I ahve seen of, well, anyone as of recent) and i'm sure that I can't afford to be an alcoholic! In conclusion, I have chosen to disregard this fictional rule of your fate determined by a single moment.

As for new years resolutions, of course I have millions! Aware that trying to keep millions of resolutions will only end in complete exhaustion, I will of course only focus on one or two, but the others can stay there to keep me inspired and motivated to better myself in any way that I can! 
1. I will try my very best and work harder so that I can pass if not excell at my degree
2. I will be healthier and stop eating quite so much excessive amounts of chocolate
3. I will be happy, no matter how bad things get, I will be optimistic and just pull myself out of the bad mood (wine is allowed if required)

What are your new years resolutions?!

I find New Years to be like any other night of the year except people have such high expectations of it. My idea of a great night was what I did this year, stay in eating curry in my pajamas with my boyfriend :)
