Kick-off to 2018: My Goals & What I’m Up To

Hi all! I know this is a bit late and that I’ve already posted a bit since the year has started, but I really haven’t gotten into blogging the way I used to.

I came into 2018 wanting to do a lot more with this blog than I have in the past couple of years. It had become a bit of a chore because I felt like I didn’t have a lot of content to write about and with the number of posts that I wanted to do versus the time that I had to write them was few and far between.

That being said, I don’t think it’s ever too late to try to make something work or reinvent something you used to love. Since coming to college, I have tried so many different and new things that I have truly loved and things that I realized don’t have a place with me anymore. It’s truly a time of great change that a lot of people talk about, and it’s slowly being written about in today’s literature.

This post started out as a resolutions post, so why not continue with that theme? Here are some personal resolutions I have set for myself:

  • Read 100 books — I read 104 last year, exceeding my goal of 80, so I thought I’d set the bar high again. Maybe I’m a little ambitious?
  • Drink more water — seriously, I don’t do this enough and I find that sometimes I think I’m hungry but I drink some water and it turns out I was just really thirsty
  • Achieve at least a 3.5 GPA — I push myself hard academically, so this is nothing that isn’t new to me. I’m really hoping to keep up the good mojo I have from last semester!
  • Blog at least 3 times per week — Needless to say, I’ve already failed at this one, but I’m trying to work out a better schedule for myself to write more and sacrifice a little bit of my reading time
  • Complete another year of bullet journaling — Last year I got into the trend of bullet journaling! I made it through the whole year and it’s been a very useful tool for me. It’s also one of my creative outlets that I’ve found to be really relaxing.

Do you set resolutions? I know a lot of people do and a lot of people don’t. It’s something that I don’t always do, but turning over a new leaf and trying to cultivate some better habits for myself is always something I look to achieve.

With that I’m ready to wrap up this post! Thanks for joining me on this rambling post of mine.

Happy reading,

Sophie 🙂
