Things To Do Before 2016

2016 sounds terrifying doesn't it? It feels like I only got used to writing 2015 in this past month. Anywho, I'm determined to make 2016 a positive and motivational year for me. A lot is going to change. So I thought I would share with you the things I plan to do before this rollercoaster of a year is over.

Have a good clear out
After Christmas, my room always seems to be overflowing with junk and unnecessary packaging. In my Monica Geller state of mind, there's nothing better than filling black sacks with rubbish and stuff to sell/donate. Clean bedding, clean surfaces and a good hoover will guarantee I enter 2016 with a fresh outlook.

Do the work I'm supposed to do
And there's a lot of it. I have training for my job, two essays to re-draft, two books to read, a mock essay and thorough research to complete. Realistically, I won't have finished much of it before the new year but it's a nice thought.

Have one last shopping spree
I've spent a lot. My December pay check was a lot more than usual because of Christmas overtime (January's should be even better). I've purchased a lot of things for my bedroom, a new bed and a few makeup bits I've wanted but have been patiently waiting for (hey, I just cleared a lot of it out give me a break parents!). I'm also heading to Westfield London on Wednesday to re-purchase empties and general things I need. The list is extensive to say the least. 2016 is all about saving money so it might be a purely drugstore makeup year. BUT FIRST, I NEED A FOUNDATION THAT MATCHES MY CURRENT SKINTONE UGH.

Plan plan plan
To be deeply honest, 2015 was not a great year for me. I'm so determined to change everything in 2016. If I plan I will be able to reach my goals (more on that soon) and will be a better time keeper. Weekly schedules also help me so much. I need to know what I'm eating and when, who's at work, when my assignments are due... I need to plan the whole of 2016 actually.

Open my memory jar
Whenever something has made me happy this year, I've written it on a sticky-note and put it in my jar. I plan to open it on New Years Eve. Not only will it give me positivity for the new year, I will have a good cringe at things that aren't relevant anymore and enjoy looking back on my memories for the year.

What do you need to do before 2015 is over? What are your goals for 2016?
