Be less shy (read all 12 entries…)
Improved so much since a year and a half ago.

I forgot all about this and it’s so odd reading my previous entries from last year (inconsequently all of which have horrendous spelling errors); I’ve improved so much I’d never had believed I could have done it.

I’m not going to tick this off as done quite yet, it’s something I can still work on in certain situations but what’s changed is I used to be “shy” as my character, now I’m just shy in certain situations and with certain people.

A friend was joking to my boyfriend how I used to ask her to buy things for me in shops and cancel at the last minute if I thought that there would be a group of people, etc. and he refused to believe I was ever a shy person. Hopefully I’ll manage to carry this on to university next year.

Best (and hardest) thing I did was to get a job in a shop where I had to talk and sell to customers one-on-one – making small talk and all of that, which improvised my ability to talk to people to such an extent.

I never thought I’d be able to improve so much, when I remember the completely socially crippling shyness I used to have, to now. People don’t understand that being shy is so horrendous. This sounds like I’m exaggerating, but it’s only just hit me what a massive thing this is for me :).



get better grades (read all 8 entries…)
Untitled

i got an E. argh. as i’m used to being at the top of the class this was, i think, what i need to make me work. i didnt revise. the rest of my subjects i also didnt revise for but did okay (AAB) hmm. i am to see this in a positive light – use it as motivation not demoralisation. yes. thats the plan. seeing as i now have my heart set on where i want to go for uni and i need AAA to go, i need to work. hmmm. off to revise now me thinks!



be more spontanious
little moments

i dont know how spontanious i would like to be, but i think for now that the little moments of almost off-the-cuff things are good for me. on a gorgeous sunny day a few days ago me and a friend happened to bump into each other, both of us were free, we called around a few people and ended up going off to the beach a few hours later. i dont want that sort of thing everyday of course, but the occasional shake up of day-to-day monotomny is sometimes essential. it made me feel positive.
