2018

Hi everyone long time no speaks I know, but I needed some time away from blogging as, to be honest with you I wasn’t enjoying it as much and the pressure I put on myself to do something my heart just wasn’t in was making me anxious and uncomfortable. However recently I have been feeling the urge to blog again and decided to not put pressure on myself to post every week or stick to certain themes. just post what I want when I want!

I say this and yet I still asked my twitter followers on courte20s what you wanted to read and I put down as an option 2018 goals simply because that’s what I saw everyone else in the blogging community doing, I only realised this when it got chosen and I had thought of what I was going to write thinking “you haven’t got any new year goals that was clever)   So to see how my years progressed and what goals I could create for this year I looked back on my 2017 goals post I spent the whole time reading it laughing at myself I hadn’t achieved one of my goals but to my surprise, I didn’t actually care.

It was then I came up with my new year’s goal: Do what I want not what those close to me want me to do, not what people around me are doing and now what society is telling me to do! 

I’m pretty proud of this light bulb moment because at the end of the day it’s my life when my time comes at the end of it ( sorry to be morbid ) I won’t have to answer to anyone else and neither will you.

So instead of goals that when you look back you won’t really care about, set goals that end with you being happy whatever that may mean.

I will try and post more often I do plan to but no promises.

As always thanks for reading and comment below what things are important to you to achieve this year.

2017 Goals

Personal goals

  • Stop letting people walk all over me!- Relationships whatever the nature of them aren’t perfect and in 2016 I found out just how complicated they can be. I discovered through this that people have a knack of playing on my vulnerabilities and anxiety by twisting things and making me over think what happened so I just say I was in the wrong and sorry to get rid of my anxiety. So in 2017 I’m going try and not panic when conflict happens take a step back and analyses what is actually happening hopefully that we ween out negative people in my life.
  • Do my physio program once a week- I have a physio program to strengthen my muscles and help with my cerebral palsy I have not been doing it but I’ve started to notice I get tired a lot quicker when trying to stand so I’m going to start it again. Once a week is going to be a challenge, though.
  •   Watch what I eat- I don’t eat badly I just don’t exactly have a balanced diet due to student life I tend to skip meals and eat the same meals consistently which aren’t the healthiest. so I’m forced to see what I’m eating I’m going to start posting what I eat Wednesday, but please don’t expect fanciness it’s a students diet.

Academic goals

  • Don’t leave everything to the last minute- pretty self-explanatory but its something I regret doing last semester.
  • Do more outside reading on my subject- I like reading about my subject I don’t know why I only read the bare minimum last year!
  • Don’t be too anxious to ask for help when I need it- I was struggling with an essay last year was too anxious to say anything, thought id be thought of as stupid or taking up someone’s time if I voiced now I found out a lot of people struggled and ask for help leaving me to fail and them to pass. I’d like to say I’ve learned my lesson but the thought of asking for help still makes me anxious.

Blog goals

  • Gain more followers- I’m still a relatively new blogger and haven’t really put as much effort into this as I want to in 2017. I hate saying numbers cause I feel too ambitious or cocky but I don’t think ill get to this amount its just my goal. I would like to have 300 blog followers ( including email subscribers+ Bloglovin) and 4500 twitter followers.
  • Post 2 times a week- I’ve been really inconsistent with my posting which is because I was adjusting to being in uni but hopefully ill be able to manage my time better and post more cause I do love it and ideally, i would like to post 3 times but I won’t get too ambitious
  • .Learn how to comment on blogs that use blogger- This one is really annoying me I love interacting with other blogs and reading their post. But whenever I go to comment on blogs that use blogger it says something about my open ID credentials not being correct when I know I’m using the correct web address. there must be a way to sort this out i will find out in 2017.

Wishing you all a productive 2017 where all your goals are met. Please comment below and tell me what yours are so we can motivate each other.
