Rather than choosing vague things I want to accomplish and then beating myself up when I didn't get around to them, I figured I'd choose things that I know are possible to implement in my life. Plus, writing them down will hold me accountable. Hopefully I'm not jinxing myself, ha! That being said, here are the things I want to get done in 2016:
1. Graduate College!
This one may seem like a given, but it's definitely my #1 goal for this year. The best part is, it's one I'm very likely to accomplish. Let the countdown begin!
2. Launch an Online Business.
It's been a dream of mine for a long time to open my own shop. I've got ideas practically falling out of my ears, and I think it could be a really fantastic adventure. Keep your eyes peeled for updates!
3. Read at least 12 books.
This may sound like a simple task, but reading for leisure is something I've really been missing lately. Twelve books will put me at one book a month, which sounds easy, but will likely be a challenge during the busy months.
4. Quit Soda and Artificial Sweetener.
Yeah, okay. I've tried this many times. Diet Pepsi is my true vice on this earth, but it's really no good for my health or my teeth or anything! Plus, drinking water has so many benefits! If it gets really bad, I'll limit myself to one pop a week, but I'd rather quit cold turkey. It's been 3 days so far, and I feel pretty good!
5. Save at least $1000.
Though I'd like to save more, I'd like to save a bumper fund of at least one grand this year, just for a rainy day. I think it's a good idea, and I doubt anyone would disagree with that!
6. Collaborate with at least 10 bloggers this year.
I definitely want to reach out this year and collaborate with more of my blogging friends! If you'd like to collab, hit me up on twitter (@jssbckly) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org)!
7. Visit NYC again!
There's so much of New York I want to experience, of course I'll take all of you along with me!
8. Find a daily routine that really works for me.
This one is slightly vague, but I imagine it will take some practice. I've already worked out a blog schedule for this year so I think that will help balance my blog life and real life more easily. I also need to start eating breakfast every day, but that's another story.
