    2017 Year in Review & 2018 Resolutions

    Hi guys, I’m back! No I’ve not forgotten about this lol! I’ve just been very busy rounding of a pretty mint year (nice segue).

    I’ve begun the second year of my sponsored degree, alongside working full time at my company in THREE different jobs; first I was a marketing executive, then in HR, and now in sales (that stereotype of salespeople is totally true ugh). No, I don’t keep getting fired, but keep moving round to see the whole business. HR rules!

    I can’t remember much of the first half of ’17, but these last few months I’ve learnt to drive in a week, passed my test first time, bought myself a car, and done my first trans-atlantic adventure abroad (stay tuned for more on that)!

    So, big hopes for 2018 – although they have to be reeled in because money 🙁 but without further ado, here are some 2018 resolutions:

    • Adeventure and explore more of the world

    When I say holiday, I don’t mean a tacky resort with blue pool and palm trees that’s the same as every other hotel listing, full of tourists who go for the sole purpose of drinking and going brown. I mean off-the-beaten-track adventure. America was uber fun and exhausting this year, so full steam ahead! A scratch-off map is definitely in order.

    • Do extreme sports

    Skiing, snowboarding, abseiling, I’m gonna try (and film) it all. And if you saw how many times I lapped everybody during go karting yesterday, you’d believe me 😉

    • Bring back the YouTube channel

    HotshotJacko is the comedy channel, but the one that’s returning in a big way is JackyB. Not so much a generic vlog channel, but instead a travel/experience channel for people to see amazing things. Contemplating getting an action camera and drone, and if GoPro could send one through after reading this, would be much appreciated!

    • Stop swearing

    Okay, not so extreme as the others, but I really need to give it up haha – I never even swore before I got this job!

    • Get in shape

    Fitness is always tough when people have busy schedules – day jobs, coursework, lives – so getting fitter is gonna be the least likely here. But if beach holidays and some of the extreme physical things coming this year aren’t motivation enough, I don’t know what is. New shoes should kick things off.


    Finally, since we all fail these quite often, I’m going to restart failed resolutions on the first of each month, like a little New Year’s Day. There’s an idea!

    If you made it this far, let me know if you have any resolutions in the comments, or link me to your blog!
