The In’s And Out’s Of 2023

The In’s And Out’s Of 2023

Alright, we’re well and truly into 2023. From what I’ve spoken to people about 2022, it was a year of ups and downs, but one thing’s for sure – 2023 is bound to be a good year. We all have a good feeling about it, and I don’t want to hear anything about those memes you’ve already seen saying we’re all jaded with 2023 already, because frankly, it’s not true, and secondly, how can you judge a year while being two weeks into it?

We’re already back into our routines, and as much as we hate being back at work and not day-drinking away our Christmas holidays, it’s time to get stuck in. As I spoke about in my article about New Year’s resolutions, it’s time to reflect back where you were a year ago and ruminate on what you liked and didn’t like.

This year, it became a trend to post your In’s and Out’s for the New Year, which I felt was a healthy adaption of New Year’s resolutions. Yes, okay, you may not want to focus on one mantra for the New Year, and maybe instead, why not really embody the phrase of “New Year, new me” with a Notes app expression of who you’re going to be this year? And I fully support that. Writers know: Notes app 4eva <3! Taylor Swift writes all her songs on the Notes app, and I write the bare bones of these articles on the Notes app while I’m commuting on the tube. We are the same (not really). I love Notes so much so that I did the In’s and Out’s Notes app list myself – even though I did make a NY resolution, nonetheless. Make all the NY resolutions! The more the merrier! The more you make, the more you’re likely to achieve! Positive thinking!

So anyway, here are my In’s and Out’s for 2023 – of which some find a little controversial, but that’s the beauty of them, right? That they’re mine? Let me enjoy my sandy duvet naps; I am who I am. Leave me alone. Love you.
