I am not the best at making and keeping resolutions. Well, technically, I’m good at making them just not so much the other part. I resurrected this blog and my Booktube channel which both help me maintain a healthy brain, but I’m terrible at posting and keeping up with both. I’m gonna try and get better, though.

Basically, this is a hold myself accountable post and I charge all 3 of you reading this to backhand me across the face if I start to fall off the wagon. Seriously, ask me for my number and I will give it to you and you can text me incessantly if I haven’t been living up to my own expectations. Cool? Cool. Anyways, here are the goals I’ve come up with for the year.

reading goals:

  • 52 books this year (one book a week) 📖
  • read some non-fiction
  • read some middle grade
  • continue finding and supporting diverse authors/works
  • try to read at least a little bit every day

booktube goals:

  • post at least 1 (but I’m hoping for 2 videos a week)
  • learn and experiment with editing 🎬
  • come up with unique and original content
  • enhance my current setup for higher quality
  • vlog
  • keep up with comments and interaction
  • host my own or be a host for a readathon (I have ideas for a Fruits Basket themed readathon so talk to me if you’re into it)
  • do a live show
  • start a book club

life goals:

  • drink more water 💧
  • eat healthier
  • be more active
  • go places even if they’re local
  • learn how to make candles
  • pay off some debts 💰
  • keep better maintenance of my friendships
  • spend less money eating out
  • work on organization
  • practice mindfulness and continue working on anxiety issues

You can also check out my latest Booktube video where I talk about some of these things and show some love to my girl, Shyanne, who has been literally a godsend for me this year. 💖

🏆 GOALS. but not #goals 'cause that's different.

And there you have it. I hope all of you have a great year! A FUCKING FLUFFY FUZZY WARM AND HAPPY ONE.

now you!

One Comment to January is for making goals and then forgetting about them

  1. These are great goals, and my soul resonates with all of your life goals 😂 My sleep is so whack right now. I’m getting a little better with drinking more water in a day. I bought a 24oz water bottle (that has the oz markers on the side) and I try to drink it a total of THREE times, so 72oz, and I guess coffee technically counts as water intake 🤷🏻‍♀️ So I get about 82 oz of water in a day! I start around 6:45 in the morning, and drink my first bottle by 10am, then drink my second bottle between 10 and 1 or 2, and the third bottle I try to finish by 5 or 6 (because if you drink water too late, you’ll be up peeing all night 😅). Hope that helps lol 😄
