The progression of life - 2018 Resolutions

We are finally in 2018, the year things change alot in some ways but in others, it feels the same as always. But as 2017 was behind us, I felt things had changed but also not much was accomplished. But enjoy anyway.

New Year's food filled eve

So, it was a wet NYE on the Sunday. With the new year coming up, My nan accidentally thought it was 2018 already, so we did visit her and have a nice meal too. But things were on my mind with finishing the Review of the Year 

After a busy wet day at work the Saturday, with having to pack everything up. But then it was a thought to be chilled day, but instead it was a nice time with the Family for the last day of 2017. So before that, it was a nice toasted sandwich and also #dogwalkingwithomracer. 

The brunch and smoothie

The meal was nice, it felt like the  nice end to the year, there was some chatter and memories being told but it was going to be nice to relax.

After this, it was trying to setup hive with google home but i think his Hive Hub had failed on him. So it didn't end up ok, but then we all left just as the sun was setting. The moon was out anyway and it was then time to finish off the last month of the Review of the Year. 

The drive home

Then it was finally time for the last meal of the year, An Indian Takeout. Well this one with a mixed tandori, lamb balti and other bits, it really felt a nice end, though my parents didn't like it. Also with the stomach, the food was feeling straight through me.

The Rice and other fun in the Indian Takeout. 
But then it was time to watch a movie, from Finishing Assasins creed, to a short thing from New Years Eve and then it was Kingsman, which actually the sequel is pretty good. But then it was the last few minutes of 2017.

Ringing in the New Year.

As time was getting on, I got glass out and then charged it for the short while. But it was 5 min until and the BBC had a pretty meh concert, ITV was asking all about how hype this london display was going to be. But then it was the countdown. And then boom, it was 2018.

Then it was listening to the Music, the display, the chatter with a new year and also drinking a Fanta Zero while doing the glasses chining with parents. But eventually it was time to get the video made. 
Well after a cup of coffee, 3 tsp of nescafe gold and one tsp of orange hot chocolate. 

The Editing

I chose Checkpoint and and actually paid £2.20 for it to help out and all that, but that song is HARD AF to Edit since there is a beat that changes every so often and luckily the slowdown helped and my energy weas 

But time progressed, my insides were being troubled so distractions were happening and nop sleep got things mostly done, well by 6am I had done half of it. But it took most of the entire day, I did manage to have a snack for lunch and also Tea as well.

After this, life felt back to normal minus some new filming for a new collab which will be interesting to say the least

A look back at the 2017 Resolutions and Facts:

This has been an expensive year and also a fun one too. 

  • Weight as of NYE  = 194.3 lbs
  • Tinder matches as of Jan 2017 = 31
  • Messages to/from girls on Feabie in 2017 = 23 
  • Total Feabie Profiles Views = 1,219
  • Total Money Sent on Girls = £172.12
  • Total Money Spent on Girls (Food, Giftcards etc)  = £413.61
  • Total Followers gained in 2017 on Twitter = 2,728

So then, Did i pass or did i fail. Lets find out: 

  • Get into my first relationship with a girl = FAILED
  • Try to meet up with a girl from Feabie = FAILED
  • Visit Bristol by myself for a day or overnight - Falcon Bus from Plymouth = FAILED
  • Finish at least 2 Games on PS4 - KH 2.8 and N.Sane Trilogy (*Both TBC) = PARTLY FAILED
  • Stream More  = SUCESS
  • Get videos and blogposts done quicker  = PART FAILED
  • Have at least 2 myself days out for vlogs that are further away from Plymouth  = FAILED

Which pretty much says i hardly got things done. I did miss alot of chances but now I've got more time to myself at certain times, it can help with what goals will happen for me in 2018. Girls have gone and love changes but things are looking on the up, some new local potentials are around and also a job i'm passionate about and can be able to control without the fear or expectation sometimes is good.

The 2018 Resolutions: 

With all this in mind. Lets set those goals for this year:

  • Get Crash N Sane trilogy Finished - This makes things easier for later on
  • Get blogposts and vlogs up quicker - The motivation is low but hopefully with better devices and maybe coffee, I can get this done 
  • Have a Holiday or Weekend away by myself - This will be well needed, since it will be the frist time in 6 years I've had a holiday since now i've had 2 weeks off since leaving the old job, its been good. 
  • Meet up with a girl from Feabie - Well,  this is hopeful this year, even if it means £500 spending over time
  • Be able to make enough money from work to Pay myself - I can't pay myself when theres not enough money to pay me and keep bills paid in the business just yet. Living off what i saved is the plan for now. 
  • Get myself ready for sex - This means i will have to get the E45 reason solved quicker. 
And thats it. We will be getting new things done and this will be a year with good and bad, hopefully more good but sometimes the past will come back in ways which could end up bad.
