Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! For the first post on our website this year, I thought I would keep it simple and just share with whomever reads this some of the things I hope to achieve this year. I always here people bash new year resolutions but, I can't lie, I love them! I always think a new year, month and even a week is always an opportunity to reflect and set goals, which is exactly what I have done this year. So here are the goals I have set myself for 2019:

Write a script

Have my artwork published

Shoot (with a camera, not a gun!) someone I admire

Learn German (Brexit!)

Travel to 3 places (preferably; South Korea, California and Nigeria)

Save money ££££

Pass driving test (third time lucky eh)

Direct a music video

Read a book a month (started with children of blood and bone)

Put more effort into my friendships and family relationships 

Learn how to produce music using logic

I hope me sharing my goals can give you some ideas of things you want to achieve this year. This is a bit off topic but I was asking my little cousin Malaya (9) on New Years eve what her goals are for 2019 and she said she wants to start washing the dishes for her mum and limit her time playing games on her laptop. I thought they were really thoughtful and attainable goals for such a young person. Also on New Years eve, before my fam came over, I wrote myself a letter using www.futureme.org - It is such a great website and you can basically write letters to yourself and receive them a year or more later. I have already forgotten what I wrote but I'm actually really excited to read it on the 31st of December, 2019 and use the letter to reflect on the past year. 

Anyways, I really hope 2019 is mine and your best year yet!
