Hello 2017: New Years Resolutions

It's 2017! Yay or nay? I don't really feel anything. All I think about was my new room and my senior year in high school. As you know, I just moved in, and I finally got a new room! My theme is purplish pink with dark brown furniture. Once my room is 100% done, I'll do a room tour post. Insya'Allah, hehe.


How did you celebrate this New Year? Am I the only one who didn't do anything? The only thing I do was watching fireworks from my room's window. My family and I were too tired to even celebrate it. Even on this last day of school holiday, I believe that everyone else is busy preparing for school, and here I am, still unpacking my things. Pray for me.

I can't even believe that I'm a Form 5 student now. My heart aches every time I think about it. I still feel like I was just in Form 2 (Form 2 is the best for me), and now I'll be sitting for SPM in 10 months. Time is flying too freaking fast! And honestly, I'm not ready for school at all. I'm too busy to even prepare for it. I need help. Plus, I have tuition class tonight. Ahhh, I swear I'm not in the mood!

Okay, Liyana, stop it. I'm getting too far. Let's continue about 2017. Actually, I wanted to publish this post yesterday on the first day of this year, but I haven't got any time. Now, I finally get to sit in front of my computer and run my fingers on this keyboard. I've been thinking about my new year's resolutions, so I decided to share them with you guys!

Be extra hardworking
Of course, as an SPM candidate this year, I have to be more and more hardworking. Alhamdulillah, my Form 4 year results was more than enough and I'm very grateful. Now, I have to maintain and also improve my study skills to be better each day. My parents are hoping for me to get good results, and I want to make them proud. Study smart, dear self! #roadtospm2k17

Get organised
As I've mentioned before, I regretted not using a planner and wanted to start using one this year. I've bought one at Popular, it's a daily planner. I've already started using it and so far so good! I also have a Bullet Journal. I don't know how to explain this, but it's basically like a DIY planner + journal. I've been watching videos on YouTube about bujo, and I wanted to give it a try. I hope I'll be very organised now! Hehe.

Become tidier
I've finally had a new, own room, so I have to be tidier. I used to have a not-so-tidy room as it was also my dad's home office at first. It's not even an actual room. That's why I'm so damn happy when I got a new one. So, of course, I'm going to keep it clean and clear! I've designed the room, and I don't want to ruin it.

Facing my fears
I'm a scaredy cat. I don't like horror movies, haunted houses, and anything related to ghosts. I'm ashamed of myself, to be honest. When I went to Sunway Lagoon with my friends last year, I was the only one who was terrified to go into the haunted house. All my friends were excited about it except me. I hate myself for being like that. I want to overcome my fears this year!

Stop procrastinating
This is my same new year's resolution each year. I procrastinate a lot, and I know I have to change myself as this is also a part of keeping myself organised and hard working. I'm not going to talk much about this as I've already had a specific post about it, click here to read it!

Save money
I get pocket money for school every school day, so I did save some money last year. But it didn't work out that well as in the end, I'd always use them. I have so many things to buy and food to taste, even my mum always counsel me to stop being wasteful. So, this year, I'm really going to save some money. And I may create a bank account and asked my mum to keep the card for me. Lol, I don't know. Whatever it is, I'm saving extra money this year as I have things to buy for my blog too!

Read more
I have many books that I haven't finish or even start reading, so I have to read more. Not only novels but textbooks and revision books as well. It's sad to leave books unread, right? I feel bad every time I look at those unread books on my shelf, so I'll try to read more this year.

Reduce my time on TV, computer and social media
This is going to be hard as they're my source of entertainment, but I'll try my best to spend less time on the TV, computer and social media. To focus on my studies, I have to do this. I don't know how I'm going to achieve this but wish me luck! Goodbye, Korean dramas. Lol, just kidding. I'm still going to watch them, maybe one or two. Hehe.

Blog more and more
Although I'm avoiding to be too much on my computer, I still want to be active in blogging. Blogging is my passion, and I don't want to leave my blog again like what I did back then. I'm still going to update my blog at least once a week, insya'Allah. I'll try to stay active; I'm only going to be on hiatus for maybe 2 to 3 months before SPM.

Eat healthier and be more active
During this whole month of school holiday, I eat a lot. I don't have many things to do except for being in front of my computer this holiday. By that, I'd eat, be online, and sleep. Pretty much. I haven't weight myself yet, but I can feel my weight increasing. I'm so going to eat healthily and keep my body active by going for a jog or something. Lol.

Learn to bake and cook
I love baking so much. In my family, my mum would do the cooking, and I'd do the baking. This is one of my hobbies. It's not like I'll bake often or something, I know you guys will be like "focus on your SPM pls". Well, this is my activity after SPM! After my school life is over, I've planned with my mum to have fun in the kitchen. I'll learn to cook and bake more delicious food. Yay!

Teach myself to be grateful
This is also my every year new year's resolution. I'm very grateful for everything I went through in 2016. All the ups and downs, twist and turns, and thick and thin. I'm hoping for a better 2017, With more happiness and less stress. I'll teach myself to be more patience, grateful, and positive! Cheers for 2017!

I have so much more resolutions but here are all the ones that I'm very looking forward too. Overall, my primary goal is to study hard and study smart for SPM. This is my last year in highschool, and I'm so going to do my best. Wish me luck for SPM 2017, guys! Hehe, thank you.

I hope all of you had a great new year. Now, let's get ourselves together and accomplish our goals and resolutions this year! Let 2016 sink in and rock our 2017. Whatever you're doing, I wish you guys a year full of happiness and blessings!

What are your new year's resolutions?
Happy New Year, guys!
