Last year I did this thing. And I meant to blog about it several times during the year and it never quite happened... In 2012, on New Year's Eve, N and some friends and I were all talking about how we'd like things to change in our lives. And in 2013, we did those things.
I joined a local book club. We started socialising more in different groups involving our hobbies and interests. We started utilising our child-free Friday nights by going out more into London and out to dinner with friends. We went to the cinema every month like we'd always planned to do (once to a drive-in cinema!). We went to sporting events (we saw Usain Bolt), did fun things we'd never have done before (highlight of the year was a ghost-hunting thing overnight in a haunted cave!) and the big thing was that it became 'normal' to be doing different fun things every month. It was wonderful.
And I'm definitely planning to carry on with this doing different things in 2014! I'm starting to get together a list of different things that will make 2014 the most amazing year ever. We already go to all the Legoland events throughout the year. We'll be carrying on with the cinema at least once a month. We've already made plans to go to several conventions this year (UKYA convention!) and we'll be going to visit Scotland for the Commonwealth Games.
But I really want to go to the theater more this year. I want to see The Lion King and maybe Matilda. I want to see more live sporting events, especially if it's diving or athletics. I want to meet up with other book bloggers and booktubers more often this year. I want to experience new things and do stuff that scares me and pushes me out of my comfort zone. I just want different to be my normal and not get back into the rut we were in before... How about you?
What will you be doing in 2014 to make it really amazing?
