About Me

52 goals of 2017

You know how every year I give myself these impossible to reach New Year’s Resolutions? Well, this year, I figured I’d make life really hard on myself. You know, cuz finishing two years of college in one year obviously wasn’t hard enough, right? Anyways, here are 52 of my goals – concrete, I want to finish them – for 2017!


1. Personal

  1. Take at least one night per two weeks off – off work, off school, off blogging, just to enjoy (if you know me, you know that once every two weeks is still a step up!)
  2. Do something sporty at least 3 times a week
  3. Eat pizza once a month (that means both at least and maximum, in case you were wondering)
  4. Eat sushi once a month (see above)
  5. Bake something new at least once a month
  6. Try a new recipe once a month
  7. Go to my favourite spot at least once a week, even if just in passing
  8. Start to learn a new language (I’ve wanted to speak Swedish for ages!)
  9. Learn to be happy with my body
  10. Learn to be happy with myself in general
  11. Try 17 new sorts of tea
  12. Appreciate the good things I’ve got going
  13. Dance a little every day

2. Books

  1. Read at least 100 books
  2. Finish at least 3 of my Reading Challenges
  3. Read at least 10 books in French
  4. Read at least 10 books in Dutch
  5. Read a book I’ve been postponing for way too long
  6. Read a classic I’ve wanted to read for ages
  7. Buy at least one book a month
  8. Read 17 books I own, but haven’t read yet
  9. Start and finish 3 books in one day
  10. Read every day, even if it’s just a page
  11. Plan to read, rather than read to procrastinate
  12. Get over myself and count the fanfictions I read for my reading challenges? Because god knows I read enough of it that it probably should
  13. Finish 3 series I started but didn’t finish

3. School / work

  1. Keep up the blog I had to start for my Masters in journalism
  2. Take at least one night off of schoolwork every week
  3. Finish my masters’ dissertation before June

  5. Show initiative at my journalism internship
  6. Kick butt at my teaching internship
  7. Graduate from my Masters in  journalism
  8. Graduate from my teaching degree
  9. Get an interview for a job that I maybe think I’m not good enough for
  10. Get my first job
  11. Save at least 1/3 of what I earn with that first job
  12. Network – I’ll need it if I ever actually want to get a job
  13. Remind myself daily that I am not how well (or awful– because that’s the one I’m worried about) I do at school / work

4. Blog

  1. Write at least 3 posts every week
  2. Write at least 1 book review every month
  3. Start (and finish) at least 1 new series this year

  7. Actively pin at least one day every week
  8. Get at least one Instagram post out every week
  9. Always make sure to have at least 2 posts out of 3 written a week before they have to go online
  10. Finalise tweeking the way my blog looks
  11. Try and get a sponsored post?
  12. Try and get an ARC?
  13. Keep loving blogging

And there you have it – 4 times 13 goals, that makes a grand total of 52 goals for 2017. You can be expecting regular (probably monthly) updates on how I’m doing on these, but before I get to that: what are your goals for 2017? Did you make any New Year’s resolutions?
