Happy New Year, one and all! 2013 really was, perhaps my greatest year to date. But it’s over now, yesterday is officially last year and today is the start of not only a new year, but a new month. It’s safe to say that 2013 was very celebratory for me in many ways, I turned 21, I got a 2:1, I graduated; meaning quite a few drinks in my 365 days! And what seems like even more over the festive period!
Every year, December 7th arrives and every night appears to be booked up with soirees, meals and parties, it’s really hard not to get swept away with all the wine and sparkles! December has left me feeling rather foggy, and with a crazy amount of university work to be tackled, I’ve decided to partake in ‘Dry January’, where one stays alcohol free for the month of January. I’ve made the decision not to do it officially for charity, because I would feel terrible if I failed sponsors if I had one glass of wine after a stressful day.
No, ‘Dry January’ is just for me. Whilst I plan to give a personal donation to Cancer Research UK because I believe alcohol and liver damage awareness is an excellent cause, I’ve made the personal decision against the sponsorship side of it.
So anyway, in the light of all my work, blogging might be a bit few and far between for the next few weeks. Whilst I’ve read so many blogs with bloggy new years resolutions, I’ve steered clear of those so far. I hate making any form of promise I can’t keep, so here’s hoping I can keep the Dry January promise to myself! Happy New Year to you all, talk soon.
