2020 plans and wishes


Happy new year everyone!
This time of year is not my favourite by any means. Christmas has just finished and it's back to reality. At this time of year, I usually like to have lots of things planned to look forward to, to get through the January blues. So, I thought I would share my new year goals and plans with you.

What I've got on

My first thing of the year to look forward to is seeing Jack Whitehall this Wednesday. He is definitely my favourite comedian and I've never actually watched stand up comedy before so it will be a new experience entirely.

Still being a typical student, I have a good amount of nights out planned too. I don't go out as much on my internship because the nightlife in my hometown is awful which is why I need to plan them in advance in other cities. I'll also be going to Bournemouth 7s Festival again in May and my uni summer ball which is basically a 1 day festival in June.

For Christmas, I got a ticket to see Mamma Mia the musical in Southampton in February with my mum and grandma. Mamma Mia is my favourite musical ever I just love ABBA and both of the films so much! We're also going to see 9 to 5 The Musical in June. Super exciting stuff!

What I hope to get up to

As Joe is living in London until September there's a lot more trips there that need to be done. I've been looking at lots of cool things for us to do in London for each time I visit so keep an eye on my Instagram channels.

I am also hoping to go away for my 21st birthday in April but struggling to decide where. Let me know of any European cities you would recommend!

One of my goals for 2020 is to travel as much as I did in 2019, if not more. In 2019 I was lucky enough to go to Mallorca, Dublin, Amsterdam and Dortmund. 

I also just want to see friends as much as possible too because adulting is hard and often means you don't get to see good friends as much.

I'd love to know your 2020 goals and what you have planned. I'm sure I will plan stuff as I go along anyway.

  1. Happy New Year! I hope it is a great one for you! You have got some great things planned. I hope you manage to see more of your friends and have fun this year xx

  2. Happy New Year! Ah I love ABBA! I really want to go and see the musical in London someday, I once went backstage/onstage on a tour and it was one of my favourite experiences ever! It was so interesting seeing how they arrange the quick-change department! My main goals for 2020 are to improve my sewing and drawing skills as my dream career is a costume designer/maker 💛

  3. I went to Budapest a couple of years ago for my birthday (also in April!) and loved it - such a cool place, lots to do and pretty cheap when you get there too.

    1. I like the look of Budapest too! There’s just too much choice haha xx

  4. Looks like some of your plans might have not happened! I also had a lot of things and trips planned this year but who knows when they'll actually happen! Hopefully things go back to normal soon.
