Happy New Year! I’ve had a little redesign, as New Year, New Template.. am I right? Probably not, but moving on. I never did a goals post last year, and I feel like I didn’t really achieve anything, so we’re starting the year out with my 2018 goals!
Reach 5,000 Instagram and Twitter Followers
When I first started blogging reaching 5k on those socials felt like the dream. That was the main goal, so it makes sense to include it here, considering I’m quite close now. Instagram is a pain, as we all know, but I’m starting to enjoy posting there again. Twitter is a problem for me, as I never know what to tweet, but engagement is the key, so here’s hoping I’m a lot more active online this year.
Pass My Driving Test
I’ve really struggled with driving; I am a really nervous driver, this is why it’s taken so long for me to learn how to do it. I’m having lessons in an Automatic; which I love. I’ve finally found a fantastic instructor and I’m finally getting to a place where I’m looking forward to driving and not having a breakdown every time I sit behind the wheel. I really hope I can manage to pass this year.
I may have got a little spendy in December, and I’ve wiped out 99% of my savings; which obviously isn’t ideal. I managed to save enough to buy my own MacBook in 2017, and I’m hoping to save for a camera this year, as I’ve decided to take the plunge and not rely on my phone for absolutely everything. Plus I always feel better if I have something tucked away for emergencies.
I’m pretty sure I’ve had this Resolution for around six years now? I’m hoping that 2018 is the year that it finally happens. I’ve already started taking Ralph on longer walks to try to get a bit more exercise, but I want to start making diet changes too. Mainly start drinking more water and less fizzy drinks.
Learn How to Cook
I started baking a lot more in 2017 and I’ve really enjoyed it, so I’ve decided to move onto cooking meals. Making something from scratch always feels really satisfying and more rewarding, than shoving a frozen meal in the oven. I have a private board on Pinterest (wouldn’t fit the theme lol), of recipes that I would love to try to hopefully I’ll be giving them a go this year. I’m unsure of whether to share them here or not, so if that’s something you’d like to see, then be sure to let me know.
Share My Favourite Accounts More Often
This is something that makes my day, so I want to start sharing other people’s accounts too; whether it be on here, Instagram or Twitter. I just think it’s a nice thing to do, and I’ve never really done it before, but I’m going to make a better effort.
Have a Clear Out
Hello, my name is Hannah and I’m a hoarder. I never really thought I was that much of a hoarder, but just recently; I’m starting to run out of space. I mean, I have a draw full of makeup packaging that’s too pretty to throw away. (It also comes in handy for photos) I do want to get a box and store it somewhere else, as it’s starting to take up too much room. I’m also starting to struggle fitting everything else in my room, so something has to go.
Continue to Improve My Mental Health
Towards the end of 2017 my mental health improved dramatically. I’m not exactly sure what happened, but I managed to do things that I never thought I would. I went to Nottingham on the 23rd of December which was a Saturday to see the Christmas markets. Now that probably sounds fine, but I’ve always declined going shopping on a Saturday, as I won’t enjoy myself. I usually spend the whole time feeling anxious, but I was fine. I really hope I can carry that on to 2018.
Well this ended up being a lot longer than I thought it would be. Turns out I’ve got quite a few 2018 goals!
I would love to hear what goals you have for 2018 too!
Thank you for reading, and a Happy New Year!
