goals for 2K18

How is it even 2018 already? I was scrolling through my published posts and saw my blogiversary is in March – that’s only 2ish months away?? It seems like I just celebrated one year of blogging yesterday.

Time is crazy.

I have quite a few goals for this year, despite not being a “resolutions” kinda gal. I realized I never posted goals – or if I did I would never post how they went! So this year, here are a few goals that I’d like to accomplish in 2018:

Finish R+B

I FEEL SO BAD FOR SUBMITTING MY ALPHAS TO THIS AWFUL DRAFT. Okay, there. I needed to get that off my chest. sorry sorry sorry

As I neared the end of R+B last month, I realized just how much needs to be changed and how much I need to improve these characters. But my alphas are amazing and have trudged through my gross, gross draft.

I think I could probably finish R+B this year though. The first draft is pretty much done, give or take a couple of chapters. I have my plans for the next draft organized in bullet points. It’s going to happen.

Commit to groups at college

I got so preoccupied with classes this past semester that I failed to attend meetings to clubs I was interested in. Why go outside my room when I can spend my free time rearranging and watching new TV shows??

But seriously, I have a few clubs I would like to join. So one goal is definitely keep up with those and GET INVOLVED.

Start a new devotional

I’ve been looking at SoulScript’s college devotional so far. Any recommendations?

Take a road trip (or any trip really)

Yes to road trips. Yes to traveling in general. After changing plans last-minute, I have canceled about five completely planned trips. Apparently there was no snow in the city I was planning to visit in Colorado?

Well, 2018 is the year for trips.

Catch up + schedule

By the end of the year, I fell very behind in my reading challenge, writing, favorite blogs, and blogging. During the school semester, I actually get fairly organized with a planner and alarms for everything.

For example, I have missed the last TWO newsletters and haven’t sent out all of R+B to my alphas yet. Whoops.

Here’s to catching up and staying scheduled throughout the spring + fall semesters AND summer.

Start something new

Assuming I stay caught up, I would really like to start something. I have plans for a few surprises, so I hope I can tackle them this year! A couple of ideas would affect the blog, but the rest would probably need their own website. So we’ll see how they go!

Spend my summer doing something productive

Either another summer camp or writing and working at my old job or something completely different, I don’t know about you, but I hate just sitting at home doing nothing.

Take + share better pictures

(Our barn doors outside our house in the pictures above are now one of my new favorite backdrops)

I’ve noticed that most of the blogs I love to follow share a bunch of pictures. Even if the pictures have nothing to do with the post, I just love scrolling through.

So my last goal for the new year is to take more pictures – and better ones. Which hopefully shouldn’t be too hard since I got a camera for christmas! BEST. GIFT. EVER.

What are your goals for 2K18?

    Scheduling is so so helpful! I don’t know where I’d be without it XD

    One of my goals for 2018 is to start making money off one of my hobbies: blogging, art, etc. I’ve been blogging for three years now and I’d like to figure out how to make some money off of it, and maybe do an etsy type shop!

    Happy new year!

    YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE SORRY. R+B is rough, sure, but it’s still AMAZING. So stop telling us how bad it is! It’s amazing! XD

    I love your photos! They’re always so pretty and I feel like we get such a nice slice of your life through them. <3 So keep sharing them!
