My 2016 Goals

1 January 2016

Hello everyone, happy 2016! To kickstart this year of blogging I thought I'd do a post telling you about my goals for 2016. I did this last year and you all seemed to like it, so I thought I'd do another for this year!

My Goals:

Read 100 books
I naturally read a lot anyway, so this year I want to push myself further and aim to read 100 books. That means reading a new book roughly every 3.5 days, which is no mean feat! However, I'm determined to do it.

Write and draw more
In September 2014 I started writing a rough journal and it really helped me organise my thoughts and feel less stressed. This is something I want to continue in 2016, aiming to write every day. I'd also like to sketch more.

Blog more
Since starting my YouTube channel last January my blog became less of a priority. I've ending up spending many more hours editing, filming and uploading to YouTube than I have writing on this blog! Whilst most of my freetime is now spent on YouTube, my blog is still important to me so I want to invest more time into it.

5k on YouTube
This is a very big (and maybe slightly unrealistic) goal but I've always been told to dream big. I currently am yet to hit 1k (but I'm pretty close!) but my hope for the end of 2016 is that I will have hit 5k.

Save up for a macbook
I've always wanted a Macbook but have never had one because they're far too expensive and I never manage to keep all of my saved up money for too long! However, if I manage to buy a Macbook with my own money I will feel I've achieved it and it will also help me to improve my YouTube and school work.

Get a job
This links to the above point but in order to buy what I'd like I need to get a job in order to get some money! Since I leave school earlier this year and have a three month summer, this will be an ideal time to get one.

Be more positive
During winter I often find it a lot harder to stay positive/happy so that's why one of my goal is to aim to have a more positive outlook on life.

This is a goal I don't really want to do, but it needs to be done! I'll be taking my GCSE's in Summer and I want to achieve the best grades possible, so it looks like I'm going to have to do a lot of revising!

Those are all of my goals so far for 2016. Let me know what some of your goals are too. Happy new year!

  1. All the best with your goals! Mine is to do more creation - blogs and videos, and maybe some more "proper" writing too if I can focus long enough!


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you all xo
