Waaaaaayyyyy back on the 1st of January I set myself some goals for 2016. So, since it’s the 30th of December so I thought that this would be a great time to recap on those goals and see how I did.
I try to set myself realistic goals but life doesn’t always work out how you want it too. I tried my best though.
Exercise at least 3 times a week Get to my goal weight of 10 stone 10 pounds by October
- Make some changes to this blog – include a variety of different posts
Achieve at least a Merit in my MA
- Be more sociable
Learn how to cook – especially parmigiana di melanzane Save money for Florida
- Wear lipstick and eyeshadow more often
Go to Magic Kingdom in Disney World, Florida Be able to do the splits again
Okay, so I’m the ones that aren’t crossed out didn’t go according to plan. I’m going to go through these very quickly. I did make some changes to my blog in January but I realised that I wanted to be a book/literature blog rather than just a general lifestyle blog.
It was difficult to be sociable for me this year. I did interact more with other people in my classes but I wouldn’t call any of these people friends. I have been fairly isolated this year and I think that’s just who I am. I prefer my own company and I don’t know if that’s going to change.
I actually wore less make up this year than I did in 2015. I don’t know why.
Re-read Challenge – I want to re-read three series’ this year.
Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling (7 books) The Millennium series by Stieg Larsson (3 books) Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan (5 books)
I loved re-reading these books.
Monthly book challenge:
Read a book that has been on my TBR for over 2 years
- Read a book by an author I’ve never read before
Read a book that was given to me by my parents Read an epic poem
- Read a book that was published in the year I was born (1994)
Read a book that was published this year (2016) Read a book that was published before 1900 Read a book that was originally written in another language and has been translated into English Read a book with a one-word title Read a book with 500+ pages
- Read a book that was once banned in the UK
Read a book that is set during Christmas
I completed most of these but some just didn’t happen. Maybe next year. Or maybe not since
To read 60 books this year
I read 70 books in 2016 so far. Yay!
That’s it for my 2016 goals recap. I will be posting some goals for 2017 in a few days or so.
