New year, new goals + a new year's ask


We are now on page 4 out of 365!!! So as we are still near the beginning I thought I would make some new year's resolutions! However, before we commence with the resolutions and that, I thought I would update you on the state of this blog..

Now you might have noticed that I have given Paint The Roses Res quite the revamp over the past couple of days, keeping the same pretty header of course! Well, I much prefer this design and I hope you do too as I have a feeling that it will be staying for quite the while.
My blogging schedule is also going to be another change; so as of now I will be posting on here every 1st and 3rd week of the month on a Sunday. This is because on every 2nd and 4th week of week of every month I will be posting on my new blog, My Imagination on Paper!
When there is a 5th week in a month I will get the week off!

- minor interlude over--now onto the resolutions!-
  • Drink more water - it's not fun being dehydrated
  • Read - I already do plenty of this, but this year I would like to dedicate more of my time to reading
  • Write more - because it's fun
  • Study smarter not longer - it's a metaphor you see; you put the textbook in front of you, but you don't give it the power to actually teach you anything
  • Go to bed in the evening and wake up in the morning on a fairly regular basis
  • Give up excuses
  • Try to do my best
 I have recently found a "New Year's ask" floating about Tumblr. It consists of 45 questions which seems a little too many for me, so I thought I would answer the first 10 in an attempt to reflect on 2014.

1) Describe your year in 1 word

2) Describe your year in 3 words
Up and Down

3) Describe your year in 1 sentence
It was a bit good and then not so good but then really good and then still good for a while then not so good but then a wee bit good again and so yeah...

4) Describe your year with song lyrics
'She sees them walking in a straight line, that's not really her style.'
'In the fast lane, living life without knowing.'
- Cool Kids by Echosmith
'Opposite of amnesia.' 
- Centuries by Fall Out Boy
5) Describe your year with a quote/quotes
"If you ever find yourself in the wrong story, leave." - Mo Willems
"We are all a little broken. But the last time I checked, broken crayons still colour the same." - Unknown
"The trouble is, you think you have time" - Buddha
"If the voice in your head is you, who's the one listening to it?" - Unknown

6) Best memories from 2014
Books - particularly We Were Liars by E.Lockhart
7) Worst memories from 2014

8) Biggest surprise in 2014
The way things played out in the end

9) If you could change 1 thing about the past year what would it be?
I would have liked to have spent more time with the ones I love, rather than with the ones I couldn't even tolerate..

10) If you could relive 1 day from 2014, which day would you choose and why?
25th/26th July - can't remember exactly. We went to Universal Studios in Florida and I wish we could have spent another day there.

I hope you have had a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year, and I will see you next week on My Imagination On Paper!!!
