A New Year, A New Leaf
But we shouldn’t be starting the new year on a negative comment. Let’s all look to the future with a fresh hope in our eyes. And that includes things for this blog as well! Last year I didn’t make any resolutions. I’m someone who firmly believes that you can make a resolution at any time and then go for it. Who needs to wait for the new year? Not me! But I do have some resolutions and goals for this year, even if a few of them are to continue goals I started in the middle of the year. I’ve got six for you:
I like to throw myself into the things I love. Blogging and anything to do with books is definitely included it that. I don’t know what possessed me to decide that a blog was enough and I want to do all three, but it happened. I love each for different reasons, and I started to slack in all of them excepting bookstagram last year. Towards the end of the year I had months where I only posted here three times, and skipped a months of posting videos…
That’s gonna change. My goal is to be posting on my blog regularly. Ideally once every two days, but I already know it’s gonna be touch and go when it comes to my exam period. I just want to stick to the motto that prescheduling for my blog, is my best friend.
In December I also discovered that you could preschedule youtube videos. I never knew that was an actual THING. So hopefully I’ll be able to keep up posting a new video every week.
And bookstagram? Keep doing what I’m doing. Hopefully there will be at the very least, four posts a week 😀
I love basketball. It’s a way of escaping my anger, keeping me focused and being part of a team. I know I’m supposed to graduate this year and go to university. My aim is to practice in the summer and try and make the team in uni. Whatever happens, I just aim to keep my love of basketball and give it my all like I do already 🙂
You probably already know about my lifestyle haul that happened in the summer of 2016. The best thing about clean eating is that it is not dieting. It’s just making healthier choices, enjoying it, and indulging once in a while in a balanced manner. I’m not doing it to lose weight, but just to be healthier. I hope to keep it up in 2017.
I also have been doing yoga on the days when I don’t have training, or doing my own independent workouts at home. I’ve been getting stronger and it’s something I’m really doing for myself. Again, something I don’t want to have end this year.
I know. I own more than 200 unread physical books. I usually read 100 books a year, plus a couple. So no, this is not a realistic goal. I’m still gonna try though. And the best thing about setting this goal is that I’m going to be feeling more guilty if I buy/attain books, so hopefully NO is going to become a bigger part of my vocabulary. Especially when in a bookstore. So let’s see how it goes?
I’m ending my IB diploma, which some people call the end of high school, some people call A levels. It’s an international program, it is very hard and consumes life – pretty much. There are countless memes about it online and if you’re curious, look into it all includes. My exams start in April/May. I’m just praying I survive, and pass with the required grades to meet the conditional offers I have been given for universities.
This semi-includes my goal of actually going to university. Which means moving back to England D: But one step at a time…
I don’t talk about my faith on here often, but I am a Christian first and foremost in my life. In the beginning and middle of 2016, I was very strong and secure in everything I was doing for the Christian side of my life. Not that I believed any less toward the end of the year. But life and material things started clouding up my view. I’m hoping to get rid of that so I can make more time for God, and seeing what he wants me to do and where he wants me to go.
So, those are all of my goals! Hopefully by sharing them with others, it will encourage me to stick to them all the more.
