My friend recently uploaded this photo from months ago (this is the outfit I wore) and it made me realise just how much I do not smile in photos. Having worked part-time as a sales assistant for the past year I have definitely realised just how big a deal something as simple as a smile can be. While a new year should not always be the only time moment you decide to change something within you, I feel like it is an ideal time to look back and ask yourself: "If I die today, would I be proud of the way I have lived my life?" As deep as it sounds, this is a question which I have been thinking about a lot since starting university (Don't worry, I'm not going through a pre-midlife crisis). Instead of setting myself new year's resolutions of what I should not do, I wanted to set myself things which I should and, more importantly, want to do. So far it is a small list but I have a feeling that it will grow and few of them most people know of already:

-Become a registered organ donor: This was the first thing which I was able to cross off on my list! It was one of the things that prompted me to make a list of goals.
-Donate my hair
-Learn British Sign Language
-Climb Kilimanjaro

So far that's it. It's small, but it's a start. If you want to ask me any questions about anything on that list  then just comment below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can!

On another note, a guy I know from back home in Luxembourg is running the ING Marathon and is aiming to raise £1000 for Every Man Male Cancer and Oxfam, so click on those links to go to his JustGiving pages! Thank you.
