The One Thing You Need To Do Today

*Cue Eminem track*
Guess who's back?
Back again.
Jess is back,
tell a friend!
(This joke only really works if you sing it to Eminem's "Without Me", so just humour me? Thanks.)
 
Hello, hello to my lovely, lovely readers. (Look at the repetition in that line. Damn gurrll.) Welcome
back, I've missed you, hope you've missed me too. I know I don't have a particularly large viewer ship, but to those of you who do read my blog and have asked for more posts, here it is. Hope you enjoy and thanks for the support. I'd like to first start off with an apology and maybe the only one I want to do in 2015. I want to say sorry. Sorry for not blogging as much as I should have last year. I stopped for a bit due to exams and then after due to sheer laziness really, I couldn't get back into the habit (ironic since it's a 'habit', huh?) and then afterwards, it just felt like "oh well another week of not blogging isn't really going to affect anything". But I've had a revelation today, which I will tell you about in this post if you could so kindly continue reading.

Normally each time this year, bloggers and vloggers (the internet folk) might let you in on their New Year's resolutions. Now I'm not going to tell you mine as I don't feel like people would really be THAT interested in them, but if you want to find them out let me know. (You can read about last year's resolutions  here ) However, just to tease you a little bit, one of my resolutions this year is to do more things that I enjoy. It seems a bit fool proof since if you enjoy something, naturally you'll want to do it, right? But you'll be surprised how easy it is to get bogged down or distracted and just work, work, work and next thing you know, it's 2016!

But today, I was sitting on the bus and I started thinking about people I looked up to. People like Tina Fey, Jason Segel, Anjelah Johnson, Donald Glover, those old people on the electric wheelchairs riding down the street like a BADASS #oldpeoplegoals,  and I was thinking about what they all had in common. Besides all of them being incredibly funny people and actors (aside from the OAPs), they all had more than one profession. Some were singers, actors, comedians, writers, directors and I just thought, "how amazing is that to experience so many things in life?" The answer: very. (Does the way I've formatted that 'very' look incredibly sassy to you as well?)

The reason I looked up to them so much is that they did things they wanted to do everyday. And right now, you reading this, I want you to do one thing, ONE THING, today that you enjoy. Sleeping and eating counts too! And then do ANOTHER THING that you want to do tomorrow. Today, I just wanted to blog and write my thoughts out onto the internet. There's no guarantee that people are actually going to read this, but hey, at least I'm here doing something I want to do.

 
So that's all for today folks! Let me know your New Year's resolutions because I'm a nosy little bugger!
