You had to know this was coming, so here are my 2018 goals! I decided to pick just 10 this year (again) so it is more achievable.
- Go to the gym a minimum of three times a week
- Work on transitioning my blog and online presence to more of what I want it to be and less of just quick fixes.
- Start working freelance
- Get organized
- Open an Etsy shop
- A solo-vacation (or maybe with friends who knows)
- Read 12 books
- Volunteer and be more charitable
- Write a book about blogging and publish it for the Amazon Kindle
- Eat better!
What are your goals for the new year?
2016 has been a rough year globally, and personally, however as December set in I began to take in about a million realizations that the new year will contain for me.
2017 is going to be a year of change, not just for me but for the world. I think there is a general consensus that 2016 was a shit year, but I’m holding out hope (and putting it into the universe) that 2017 is going to be a lot better. My goals (to be released later this week) will hold the fate of this blog, my “real” future and a bunch of other things I’m sure.
2016 brought me some good things, like I finally saw a therapist, cut off some people that were detrimental to my well-being, and God pushed me to some really good people which made for some really great friends. I hope that this year, the friendship cycle that seems to constantly be rotating ends and the people I have found stay.
2017 will bring graduation, moves (maybe), a job (hopefully), and all around some major life changes. I don’t know if I have ever been so
scared excited for a new year. It will also bring an administration I am afraid of, but will continue to pray for and protest. Women, it is time to fight for our rights, there are too many that have suffered, we can’t let it continue. Minorities, fight. Please fight. It is nearly 2017 and everyone I can’t believe there are so many large groups of being fighting for equality.
The next few days will bring reflection of old goals and the birth of new ones. I will not be posting my statistics of the year, if they’re even available this year, mostly because there is not a single piece of me that wants to know how much they have gone down. 2017 will be different. I’m determined to make it my year.
2017, I’m ready for you.
So today I came to the unfortunate conclusion that it is time to grow up. I mean yes, I still am a freshman and college and yes I still have four years to go, however I am nineteen years old and it’s time to start acting like I have my shit together. Now I know most people start this at the beginning of the year and fail by October, well HA because I’m starting in October and I’m determined not to fail. I want to dress nicer, and do my make up more, that way by the time I graduate I will be used to it and I’ll do it for work in shit like that. So today I was going out and I bought make up! :O For those of you who know me- which none of you really do, this is a huge step because I never actually wear make up. I know that this is an odd time in my life to start things like this, but I don’t really know, like I just feel like I should be trying harder. I guess I always kind of complain that people don’t really pay attention to me, and maybe I think they will if I look nicer. But it’s true, the nicer you look the more attention people will pay you. Now this is not to say I will not be putting my yoga pants to rest- no, I will still wear those just not everyday. I’ll wear real bras rather than the simple sport ones I typically wear. I hope that people will start to take me more seriously, I should’ve taken college as a fresh start from the beginning of the year, but I still have my chance now. So here’s to the fresh new (hopefully pretty) start of Mary.
