I never stick to New Year Resolutions. I make them and what’s worse is that I’ll probably brag about them, probably under the influence, which is probably what I was meant to be giving up in the first place.
So, this year, rather than setting targets to resolve something that will undoubtedly never change, I have given myself three small, fun challenges that will (hopefully) make me a lot happier in the long run.
1. Be Able To Do The Splits
Don’t worry, I hear you chuckling to yourself.
Is this a result of my green eyed self silently (loudly) judging the talent of Ru Pauls Drag Race, as they death-drop for their lives? mostly, yes.
The other reason is because I have been diagnosed with
nearly everything under the bloody sun Hyper Mobility Syndrome, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and various other invisible illnesses. And how does one not let these disabilities make one super sad? By training my super sexy flexible limbs whilst they’re still capable to perform dramatic landing techniques to the tumbles I will no doubt make when I’m older.
2. Enjoy My Career
As a freelance makeup artist, I will always have room to develop my clientele. I’m a super busy lady and will fill any spare time I have with some kind of work. I will be leaving retail full time at the end of January, and hope to fill the gap by extending my portfolio, working with artists, models, theatre groups. So y’know, if the Pixiwoo sisters are listening, I would love to give you a hand…
3. Re-read the Harry Potter Books
Quite frankly, I think everyone should do this in 2017. 2016 was quite possibly the worst year ever (mine, at least) and there’s nothing that cheers me up quite like
1. A good book
2. Harry Potter
I still have that inspiring feeling of stepping into the the magical world of Hogwarts with Harry when I first read the books, many many moons ago. So why not revisit?
