Life: Kicking 2017’s butt one goal at a time

2017 life goals





VISIT NEW CITIES &
REVISIT SOME OF MY FAVOURITES.

It’s been a few years now since I lived in
France, and I’m starting to get that travel bug again. A few days ago, I booked
to go and see a few of my friends in Paris for the weekend. I also have the
intention of taking full advantage of my passport and visiting as many new
cities as I possibly can. I went on to book more flights out to France
yesterday, spur of the moment – I’m enjoying the more spontaneous side to me
that 2017 seems to have brought out.


READ 52 BOOKS.

In 2016, I managed 53 books, all the while
teaching, working another part-time job and blogging. I’m not sure how I
managed it; the summer holidays definitely helped matters but I’m hoping to get
as many under my belt this year. I’ve got off to a pretty bad start- I haven’t
read a single page so far. I know we’re only 4 days into the year but it feels like I’m slacking already! 


MAKE MEMORIES.

This one’s a pretty vague one, but what I mean
by this is to take pictures, scrapbook, write down amazing things that happen
to me. I’ll be utilising my blog and Instagram for most of this but I’ve also
just bought myself one of those little portable mobile printers. I was tempted
by the polaroid cameras but I’m not sure I trust other people to take decent
pictures so the idea of taking them on my phone/camera first and then printing
them out appeals to me a lot more.


SAVE UP ENOUGH MONEY
TO BUY A HOUSE.

This morning, I set up an ISA for my mortgage
savings. I had a little chat with a mortgage adviser over Christmas and got
some amazing advice as to how to go about buying my first home. I have a lot of
work to do but I’m very, very happy with the advice she gave me and am really
looking forward to getting the money saved and starting to look at finding a
little place to call my own.


BE MORE CREATIVE.

I’ve already got my creative head on this
month, making little cards for my aunties and a birthday card for my friend. I’ve
made a few prints for my flat, to make it a little bit homelier as well. I’m
enjoying taking photographs of my travels and my day to day life – I’m thinking
of collaging these photos and making a print for my bedroom as the walls in
there are looking pretty bare.


REACH 2000 INSTAGRAM
AND 3000 TWITTER FOLLOWERS.

This one’s a bit ambitious, particularly where
Twitter is concerned but hey, God loves a trier. My followers are growing on a
daily basis but not quite to this extent yet. Hopefully I’ll continue putting
out blog posts and you guys will keep on reading my posts: that really is all I
can ask for.
