Not Exactly Resolutions // 2015 Goals

Wow. 2015 came quickly. 2014 was a really intense year for me, and I think I’ll write a reflection post about it later, but wow. It’s just been a whirlwind. This year, I decided I didn’t want to write resolutions. I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep them, and I feel like making overall goals and have aspirations for the year is going to be more beneficial, as opposed to making resolutions that I doubt I’ll even remember by February.

  • Improve My Blogging // I hope this one is somewhat obvious. I want to be able to post more, make it slightly more of a diary format (like my last post was), but also built my blog as a brand, in case I need it as a possible portfolio for the future.
  • Get Better at Budgeting // I’m the worst at budgeting and saving money. You’d be surprised to hear that my mom is an accountant and my dad manages money and numbers for sales. I hate having to budget and figure out how much I can spend on what. On the second day of the year, my dad told me that I need to start budgeting better. And I thought I was doing well. Clearly, this is an area I need to improve in my life.
  • Be Healthier // I’m not exactly unhealthy, but I would say that this is an area in which I need to improve. I’ve been running after class with my friend Jordan, but I’ve also been still goingto Cookout and Zaxby’s for dinner. Which isn’t helping.
  • Learn More // I want to take more classes and learn more and just learn more. This goes along well with the next one.
  • Decide on My Major // I came into college being an English major, and then I took a History class that I love, and now I’m deciding that I might want to be a History major. So I want to be able to take the classes that are going to help me decide on my major.
  • Focus on Self-Improvement // I usually put something on my New Years Resolutions list about wanting to improve things with others, but this year, I want to make this year better for me.
  • Be a Little Less Obsessed // I really obsess over things. TV shows, musicals, songs, situations, people, if it’s there, there is a high possibility that I will obsess over it. Some of this is harmless, and some of it is just too much for me. Some of it is me just trying to make something a larger part of my life than it probably should be. Either way, I need to just work on being a little more calm.
  • BE ME // I usually am myself. But, I want to focus on being me. Not worrying about what others think, or what I can do to “improve” myself. But being myself and being the best me I can be.

I might add to these throughout the year, but for now, I’m going to focus on these goals. What are some of your (belated) New Years Resolutions?



October Goals

Well…I moved into college and everything got really crazy really quickly, so I missed September’s goals! I know it’s a little late, but let’s see if we can do October’s goals!!

August Goals:

  • Move into college without too much of a hassle.
  • Have a positive attitude about whatever dorm I’m assigned to, regardless of if it is the building I want or not.
  • Seriously actually plan at least a week’s worth of blog posts because soon it will be college and I won’t get the chance to post much.
  • Finish my beta notes for Laura! (Although she needs them back way before the end of August…)
  • Finish my summer reading book for college.
  • Actually do better about posting.


October Goals:

  • LOVE my big no matter who they are!
  • Start waking up with more time to get ready in the mornings.
  • Get my French homework done the day it’s assigned.
  • Figure out the tension between me and Meg.
  • Have a great time at the Tacky Prom function, even though I don’t know my date.
  • Post about recruitment.
  • Post about Bid Day.
  • Post more.
  • Have at least a week’s worth of posts planned out.
  • Stress less (ha).


Keep a look out! I’m planning some more posts soon!
