Bat Fit 2015 Goals

You guys, I'm really scared. I've joined Bat Fit for 2015, but I have absolutely no confidence in myself.
I've followed Bat Fit since Franny at The Curious Professor Z started it. She wanted to become healthier before her 40th birthday, and asked bloggers to join her on her journey for health. Franny made wonderful progress, and I was insanely jealous of her and the other girls who did Bat Fit.
Now Franny is going to kick off Bat Fit for 2015 and I've decided to join (eep!).

I'm really scared, because I don't think I'll succeed. I don't have a support network in my life to help me along, and I don't like going outside, so this doesn't help with fitness goals. I don't like setting goals for myself or telling people about them. I'm especially scared about doing this publicly on my blog, because it means that you guys can see my (lack) of progress.

I have a lot of things in 2015 to look forward too, such as a trip to Phuket and a trip to Melbourne. I'm also looking towards 2016 where I hope to finish my bachelor degree and travel to America and the UK. I'm really going to try my best to do Bat Fit, and I hope you guys can join me on my journey.

Bat Fit 2015 Goals:
1. To comfortably be able to sit in aeroplane seats and thrill rides at theme parks. I'm able to fit in aeroplane seats at the moment, but not very comfortably for long hauls as I get bruises on my hips from pressing against the armrests. I want to be able to sit comfortably on these seats, and be able to use the lap tray too!
I also want to be able to ride on roller coasters without having to be anxious if I'll fit or not.
This means I'll have to lose weight, which I've never done before in my life. I love food way too much.

2. To be able to lift heavy things, to be a strong swimmer, and to be able to run or cycle. I don't know how I'm going to reach these goals without putting down money.

3. Continue my study of a bachelor degree. I know I won't get high marks, but if I pass that's okay!

4. Try to be more motivated. I've dropped so many things in 2014 due to my depression and lack of motivation. I can't say that it'll get any better, but I will try my best.

5. Be artistic, do more crafty stuff.

6. Stick to a budget! I've got to save for my future holidays, plus I need to pay back some loans, look after my car, and pay my health insurance in July. I need to learn some self discipline, because it's so easy for me to waste money on things I don't need.

Spooky Holiday Gift Guides

A few of my favourite websites have produced some holiday gift guides for the more morbidly inclined.

Cult of Weird, Holiday Gift Guide 2014
This gift guide offers some amazing ideas, but sadly most are very expensive. Sure, I'd love a piece of skull embedded in a ring, oh it's $400, never mind then.

The least expensive things are probably the paper items they suggest, such as books, calendars and posters. Check out the ideas, and then look through the website because it's one of my favourites.

Order of the Good Death, Very Merry Morbid Gifts Under $25
Caitlin at the Order of the Good Death offers more budget friendly gift ideas. I highly suggest her book, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes (which I will be reviewing once I've finished reading it).

Once you've looked at the gift list remember to view her youtube videos and articles. She offers a really great insight on death practices, and gives ideas for what's available for the disposal of bodies.

Gothic Beauty, 2014 Holiday Gift Guide
A good selection of Goth accessories, from cheap to expensive. All of these items seem very generic though, that you can buy any other time of the year.

Buzzfeed, 21 Christmas Gift Ideas for the Goth in your Life
Don't look at me like that! Buzzfeed has some good ideas. Such as the cute teeth ring. Some of these might not be to your liking (such as the pink jacket) but there's some nice ideas to get started on your quest for the perfect gift!

Work Xmas Lunch

Today, at work, we had our Christmas lunch. We had a buffet at the Duxton Hotel, in Perth, which is a really fancy place. The food was okay (not brilliant) and I was very full afterwards. It was hard to work afterwards when all I wanted to do was sleep :)

I also organised secret santa for my coworkers, so I got to hand out the presents!

So fancy!

My first plate, filled with random things. The squid rings were lovely.

Dessert plate.

Me handing out presents!

Back at work with my coworker. We're both full and in need of a nap.

You can see my face here is "what the hell are you doing, James?" to my coworker taking the photo.

Shopping and New Hat

Yesterday I went shopping in Perth with Danie. I haven't seen Danie for over a year now, so it was nice to catch up with her.

I'm terrible with remembering where I bought my clothes.
Bowie shirt: random website
Skirt: Big W
Tights: We Love Colors
Boots: Justin Roper Boots

Lipstick: Vamp from Sleek

I got this wide brimmed felt hat for $10 at Target.

Looking like a dork :)

Here's Danie!

Here's the view of Perth from the top floor of the WA State Library.
I had an hour to spare before I started a shift at Rooftop Movies, so I went to read my kindle at the library.
