My goals for 2018

Goodbye to 2017 and hello to 2018. Now as nearly everyone else on the planet right now we are all reflecting on the year and thinking forward to what we want to achieve in 2018, I have given this some deep thought and decided it would be good to share with you what I am aiming for and want to complete in 2018! Edited note: sorry this is going up so late.

1. My GCSEs 
So obviously this year I am sitting lots of GCSE exams as I'm in year 11. I want to do well and from now until them exams in the summer I aim to work super hard so I can achieve the best grades possible and do well so I get the grades I want and need.

2. Blog more
I know this one is going to be difficult to do around my GCSEs and my main focus should be my exams but I am going to attempt to get at least a post up every month and from July and on you should be seeing a lot more from me as that's my chance to chill out so watch this space!

3. Running
As you may know I am very into running anyway but I want to set myself a clear goal. I aim to be able to run a comfortable seven miles by next December this way I know I have to keep running and not get lazy even during my exams and anything else that might busy me in the coming year. Its so important to exercise its keeps me so healthy in my mind and body.

4. To learn how to drive
So I am turning 17 this year and I want to start learning how to drive in September I don't expect to pass this year as I want to be realistic but I want to start learning how to drive straight away and take my theory at the first opportunity.

Broadditch Christmas Market

In the aim to feel festive and christmassy (is that even a word?) I decided on a lazy Sunday to go to a local christmas market. No you are not going mad, you might recognise the name Broadditch as that is the same place I went for the hauntfest this year, but they have quickly packed up some of the halloween things for the christmas market. They hold so many events throughout the year if you live in Kent or anywhere near then its defiantly worth checking them out

So for one weekend only they had their christmas market and they will close for for a few weeks and open again when they will only have their little shop selling decorations and christmas tress the market side is only there for a weekend and if I am right this is their second christmas market ever now.

I thought the layout was good having a food and drinks section selling festive themed beverages and food as well as one barn being full of people with stalls and the other barn having a few more stalls and their own massive shop full of every christmas decoration you could ever imagine.

Overall I don't think this particular Christmas market was amazing but it made me feel so christmassy and the live music was a lovely attraction enjoyed by many people there. I still think the idea of going to a christmas market with a few friends or family member is such a lovely idea and you can pick up the nicest stuff!

Halloween Hauntfest 2017

WARNING...contains gruesome images...Happy Halloween

I feel like this blog post is becoming an annual thing, but I love going to Broadditch hauntfest and would recommend it as every year it changes slightly and they bring something new to the plate which keeps is fun and interesting. As I've said before they offer something for everyone. For young children they offer a bright colorful experience which focus's more on pumpkins and visually fun aspects of halloween. For the less brave they have the scare attractions including a spooky castle and corn maze which you can visit during the day so it is still light and there aren't any actors so its a little bit spooky but yet not too scary; or for the daring and brave there are the night event where there are live actors in the attractions and walking around the farm scaring you.

This year I went with some friends and enjoyed doing all the events at night. I love the thrill of being scared and expecting to be made jump. I will for sure be returning next year which is no surprise as I have been coming to this hauntfest every year since I was five years old but obviously I started with the children's activities and got braver as I've got older. I hope they keep this event going for years to come.
