10 Goals for 2016

I don’t normally set myself new years resolutions, but this year I decided to set myself 10.

If you’re interested in hearing about the goals in more detail, have a watch of the video below, but here is a list of my 10 Goals for 2016

1.  Read as many books as possible. – I haven’t set an exact number of books to read because I’m unsure of how many I’m capable of reading in a year. I’ll read as many as I can, then next year I can set myself a number to beat.

2. Get fitter. – At the end of 2015, I was attempting 5k runs, doing more youtube HIIT workouts and trying to do squats/press-ups everyday so I want to get better at those to tone up my body.

3. Go a walk once a week. – In 2015, I got so into hill walking and climbed a couple of munros, but this year I want to not only climb more, but attempt 1 walk a week. It doesn’t have to be a big hike every week, but even a 5k or a trail will suffice.

4. Climb more. – I’ve been enjoying bouldering a lot recently, but because climbing every single week isn’t feasible all the time, I want to make sure I climb once every 2 weeks, at least.

5. Travel more. – Last year, I visited Italy which was great fun, but this year I’m even more excited because in April, I’m going to Berlin and South Africa! I also visited Skye, Inverness and climbed a few hills in Glencoe in 2015, but I want to travel around Scotland even more this year, and another country if possible.

6. Vlog more. – As I said in my previous blog post, I’ve started a youtube series called Creep Week, which involves vlogging during an interesting week and putting it altogether in one video. Vlogs are probably my favourite videos to film, so I’m aiming to do more of those this year.

7. Put more effort into youtube. – I want to be proud of every video I upload, so I’m aiming to really step up my game and give youtube my all.

8. Blog more. – I started this blog in 2015, but I hardly posted anything! So over the next 11 months, I’m going to write a post relating to every youtube video I upload, which will be once or twice a week. However, I’m hoping to get into the swing of writing other posts that aren’t related to youtube.

9. Write in my diary more often. – I have a LiveJournal that I write in once a week or every 2 weeks but I’m struggling to remember what I did over the weeks when I’m updating it! The goal is to write in it either every day or every second day.

10. Work on my anxiety. – This is a biggie! I’d encourage you to watch my video to understand what I want to achieve.

Let me know what your goals for 2016 are!

Ending 2015

Happy new year!

This year, I’ve decided to start a new youtube series. Whenever I have an interesting week, I’ll film it and upload a vlog. The title ‘Weekly Vlog didn’t appeal to me, so I decided to name it something relating to my youtube username. Hence: Creep Week!

Creep Week #1 is out today and contains clips from Christmas, nights out over Christmas, Hogmanay and a spontaneous trip to Glencoe.

What did you do for Christmas and New Year’s Eve?

Every year, I follow the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards and wish that one day, I’d be able to win something like that. I’ve never had the guts to enter because I’d be up against people who I’ve followed and admired for years, and it’d be silly to even think I could be in the same league as them…

Until today.

WHY THE HELL NOT?!

Obviously, I won’t be entering any blogging categories because I’ve only had a blog for a short time, but I’ve been uploading videos onto youtube for nearly 6 years now and I feel like I should just go for it, so today I put myself forward for “Best Vlog”.

In no way do I feel like I have the “best vlogs” or a youtube channel that is better than anyone else’s that have been shortlisted/won in the past, but it’d be amazing to be shortlisted anyway!  I’d be so grateful if you could vote for me.

I constantly see youtubers who have a huge following and think to myself that if I ever had a following as big as them, I would do lots of worthy things, raise awareness and money for different charities or campaigns and bring attention to people in the world that need our help…but then I thought, why not start now with the following I already have? So, I’m currently writing a list of ideas of new things that I can bring to my channel.

If you feel like I deserve to win, please vote for me! All you have to do is fill out a short form with your email address, my youtube url (http://youtube.com/beautycreep), why you enjoy my channel and the category (best vlog). CLICK HERE TO VOTE 

I’m constantly overwhelmed by the support you guys give me, so thank you. If I ever won, I’d need to film something OUTRAGEOUS!

2 youtubers I regularly watch have also entered the same category, Hannah Witton and Chyaz Samuel (Punk Chyaz), so give them a wee vote aswell!

Tweet me or send me a message if you vote for me so I can thank you!
