It’s that time of year again where it feels like a fresh start and we can make resolutions or goals. Now don’t get me wrong I will probably fail at these. Not being pessimistic but it’s true. I want to set some anyway and hope to try and actually achieve them.
Bookish & Blogging Resolutions/Goals
Only request ARCs I really want to read // Well this seems like common sense right?? I have a bad habit of over requesting than getting so loaded up it drains me. I may already be there for the first couple months but need to refocus on this.
Not get crazy about NG % // I have been obsessing about keeping above 80% but there is not reason to freak out about it. I will review the books it just might take me some time and time while I am below 80%.
Read more books I own // There are so many books on my shelves and on my kindle I really want to read them. I do. And I will this year.
Not stress if I don’t post super regularly // I get kind of nutty about posting on my little schedule I created. I have to be ok with maybe not having two reviews in a week if I am reading slower. Or if I am low on discussion topics. Or if I am just too busy.
Buy less books // Yeah see above.
Read the whole Harry Potter series // I have had this as one of my goals for a while now but I need to do it. I actually finished the first book already!
Use the library more // I love using my library and I want to make sure I get full use out of it, especially for audiobooks.
Care less about stats and such // Yeah again this is something I have been trying to do for a while. I am not a big blog at all. I am ok with that too. But I so focus on views and such when I shouldn’t be.
Be healthier // Yeah yeah yeah. This has to be the most general one right??I have specific goals though. I want to drink more water. I want to cook healthier meals (my new cookbooks will help with that). I also want to ease back into exercising regularly.
Decorate my house // We have lived in this house for 5 years. I have like 2 things on the walls. It is so sad. I am so not good at this stuff but I am determined to finish get the house in order.
Spend more quality time with my kids // I am with my kids all the time but I really want to spend some good quality time with them. I want to do more crafts, play more games and read more books with them.
Spend less // In general, I am not awful with this but I want to be really conscious of my spending and not be frivolous with my spending.
