Hello! I believe 2017 is going to be a great year. 2016 was
a good year for me and I believe the good things will continue to happen in
2017. I have nothing in mind except the fact that I’ll finish my Master’s
degree in the summer.
Last time I set my goals for the year was 2015 I believe. It
wasn’t a fail nor a success, let’s say it was 50/50. This year I decided to set
more realistic goals.
Visit Istanbul or Edinburgh
– me and Kris, we have friends living there and if we can’t do this, well… we
really suck at travelling...
Buy our first car
– it’s been a long time since I had my driving license (and haven’t driven
since then). I think everyone should know how to drive. Last year we searched
far and wide and we couldn’t find it, so I hope this year we will and Kris will
let me drive it… probably.
Start a YouTube
– I’ve been considering it for a few months and I think now is the
perfect time to do it. I watch YouTube videos every day and I see that there
are videos for everyone. I hope people will watch mine as well. And if not now, when?
I always delay
everything so that I am fully prepared because I’m a perfectionist and this
didn’t lead to anything, literally. That’s why I want to try to make videos. It’s
not going to be so hard.
Start a side
– not that I don’t like my job but I want to be financially
free from some point in my life. And anything can happen, I want to make sure
that I have a backup plan for my life.
Read at least 20
last year I’ve read around 10 books and I want to fix this mistake.
Plus I downloaded a reading app on my phone so I can read when I’m out of the
house – at a coffee, at lunch break or anywhere when I need to wait.
– I want
to get back in shape. Since graduating in 2013 I haven’t been doing a lot of
exercises which is a shame. Not that I’m fat but I’m not skinny neither. I’m
dedicated that I will succeed this year and I already bought my 1 month GYM
want to achieve a healthier body. I want to start eating more fruits and
veggies, less meat and I want to reduce the junk food as far as I can. I already
started this process back in 2015 and I see a lot of progress but I know that I
can do better. I also want to learn how to make healthy desserts and meals so
that I won’t feel guilty when I’m eating an ice cream or pizza.
Make some time in the
morning and in the evening for me –
makeup, face masks, etc. I’ve been
neglecting these things for the last year or so. I plan to stick on a routine.
Especially a morning one because I’m a night owl (coincidence? I think not) and
I don’t like to get up early. I go to bed late and I sleep as long as I can in
In general: invest in
my own happiness
this year, I want this to be a selfish year. I want to
take care of myself and my relationship with Kris.
What are your 2017 New Year’s resolutions?
