Ok… Need motivation


Some early new year’s resolutions now – it’s nearly new year’s eve after all.

I will blog more often – even if I have nothing to write about – just write some thoughts down. I have not been very consistent with actually writing about events in my life or just thoughts on things – I don’t seem to have much faith in them so I need to do better.
I’m doing a thing called project365 set up by a friend of mine where basically you take one picture everyday of the year. I’ll see how long I can keep it up before I forget. I want to actually get something out of it even if it’s just a bit more inspiration and ideas as I want to be a wildlife photographer when I leave uni. Many photos I take will be put on my photoblog.

I will make a proper effort in uni and try my best to get a 2:1 next summer.

I will keep the peace in my house, and try to be nice to my friends even if they are not being nice to each other.

I will waste less time on facebook and read more real books.

I will make myself cleverer and more knowledgeable.

That should keep me busy for a while.


Ok I’m getting rather bad at blogging. I cant seem to be bothered to write stuff about what I’ve been doing all day. It’s not that interesting. It’s the equivalent of people asking you ‘how was your day’ just to make conversation (yes I do it all the time but at the same time I know it’s annoying). Anyway I was reading the Q&A in the Guardian where they ask quick questions to a celebrity of some kind. I was reading thru and putting my own answers in as I went as I’m not that interested in the life or opinions of Sophie Dahl. Here’s my answers.
