Goals for The Rest of The Year

September 14, 2017

How is it September!!! How is my second year of university imminent!! 2017 has flown by. It's been hectic, productive, stressful and exciting. I've had a lot of wonderful opportunities and spent a lot of time with myself learning about how I manage to be alone. (Thanks to university and being thrown into the deep end of independence)

As a way of remaining in control of my life and keeping focus I've been setting myself goals. This summer spent at home I've had a lot of time to think about what I like doing, what I'm good at and learning new things. So for the remaining three or so months of 2017, here are some of my goals. 


  1. Keep up with running. I have been running 3 times a week and upping my mileage slowly. Got some serious half marathon goals for next Spring. 
  2. Blogging once a week. All summer I've been trying to update my blog weekly and I plan for it to continue when I start the new academic term.  
  3. I appear to have a lot of writing projects on the go. Writing makes me happy and calm. My main WIP is at 18k, the goal is to write every day even if it's 100 words or 1,000.
  4. Treat myself more. This doesn't mean dropping excessive amounts of money on self care and bath bombs. Relaxation in the form of a long hot bath, although going back to uni means showering... Ugh. Buying myself coffee or making my own face mask at home. 
  5. Buy more yarn so I continue with my knitting projects, learn new stitches and make everyone in my life a chunky scarf for Christmas. 
  6. Learn embroidery. I have the equipment and supplies. I have Youtube tutorials to help me. 
  7. Find a small part time job whilst studying. It has to fit around my timetable, which isn't hard considering I only have one day a week to start with. I've already been applying and have interviews lined up. 
  8. Join a sports based society/team at uni. Deciding between rugby and kickboxing. 
  9. Explore Bath more. Bath is a richly historic city with gorgeous buildings. There's so much to see and do. On my to-see list is the Jane Austen Centre, she spent a period of her life in Bath writing novels, bathing in the spas and socialising. Also making the list is The Holborne Museum, The Royal Crescent and a Bath Ghost Tour.
  10. Finish re-reading Harry Potter. I rarely re-read so I have taken it upon myself to try for this magical series. Currently reading Prisoner of Azkaban. The series is making me laugh, cry and feel like I'm actually a part of the Hogwarts adventure. (A girl can dream)
  11. To-do lists reduce my stress levels and it's almost thrilling to tick tasks off, especially when the academic year starts and I have to juggle assignments and reading.


What are your plans for the rest of 2017?
