1. WRITE. My Auntie and Uncle bought me this beautiful keepsake journal called My Life Story for my 18th birthday. I filled some in the year I got it but then with going to uni and other commitments I got out of sync. I really want to start jotting bits and pieces in it again this year as it would be the most wonderful thing to look back on when I'm old! It's got an amazing set of features to document, such as a world map to mark where you've been, a sketch of the human body to mark any piercings, tattoos, birth marks and scars, and numerous 'favourite' categories like recipes, festivals, exams, adventures and photographs. I've obviously also got the One Line A Day journal from Matt which I should be able to incorporate into my daily routine!

4. READ. My reading list grows as the year goes on. I have alway been an avid reader and that's predominantly why I loved my university course- I got to test trial so many innovative books that were out of my comfort zone. I'm planning to stock up, read or re-read and make notes on every secondary English text this year in preparation for my teacher training! I do also just read for fun and relaxation though- there are some books I read only in the bath, and some I read when I want to look intellectual in public! My Nan lent me this Morpurgo book before she passed away, and she loved it, so I'm looking forward to picking up this one.
