Happy New Year and my goals for 2013

To all my readers and followers, May 2013 be filled with new hopes and sweet surprises, wishing you a magical New Year!

So what does 2013 have in store for me?

  • Firstly i hope to settle into my PhD more and knuckle down a bit more, i have been a bit lax but i hope this will change, the start of term was just overwhelming. 
  • I want to become a better teacher, i am not sure how to achieve this yet but i want to be able to help my students and really progress them so they can enter the work world with something to offer
  • Me and the BF are looking to buy a house in Bath, sadly we won't be living together yet as his job is still based in Reading but it will be somewhere for me to call my own and help me feel a bit more grown up, i have lived in student accommodation since i was 18. i want somewhere i can decorate and can really feel like a home (i might also get a pet!)
  • I might start driving again, i need to overcome my fear (i had two bad crashes when i started driving and haven't been behind the wheel since)
  • I want to get a bit fitter, this isn't about losing weight, i just want to not get out of breathe so much when i go up the 4 flights of stairs to my office. 
  • I want an actual holiday this year, i didn't get to go away last year as i was so busy so this year i want me and the BF to get away.
  • I want to attend my first PhD conference, there is one in Turkey my supervisor wants to go to so i have to submit a proposal and hope i get picked.
  • Meet the blogging ladies in person, this should be achieved quickly as i am going to Doncaster next weekend for a day of fat shop and i will be attending London Plus Size Fashion Weekend and hopefully Plus North.
  • Spend more time on myself and with my friends and family, i need to find a good work/life balance. 

What are your goals for 2013?
