2015 Goals

Happy 2015 guys, I hope you’ve had a spectacular start to the year. This is my obligatory new years goals post, but first, lets look back at how I did at my 2014 goals:

Books

  1. Read more classics – I want to read 6 this year! – I didn’t read as many classics as I wanted to this year, completing only Mansfield Park.
  2. Read some upcoming 2014 movie adaptations (I’m looking at you Vampire Academy!!) – I hate watching films based on books if I haven’t read the book first!!  – Well I definitely didn’t do well on this goal. I didn’t go to the cinema as much as I wanted to this year, and so I didn’t read as many upcoming adaptions – The Maze Runner is very high on my TBR list.
  3. Have a, very loose, theme for each month. One of my favourite Book-Tubers, The Readables, does this and I think it’s so cool! – I have to say I utterly failed at this goal. My blogging has become much more relaxed in 2014, and I think themes may be slightly too much for me.
  4. Read more debuts! – Now I have done a bit better at this goal – I read 7 debuts in 2014
  5. Continue listening to Audiobooks – my goal for 2014 is 6 – I failed at this one as well. I did a lot of starting audiobooks, and not a lot of finishing them…
  6. Be up to date of A Song of Ice and Fire – hahahahahaha. This didn’t happen.

Blog

  1. Be more consistent with my blogging – I have been very bad these past few months and I need to get more organised with my blogging schedule. – I think I’ve been a bit more consistent this year, but I still need to up my game in 2015
  2. Blog about what I want to – I feel like my little blog had a bit of an identity crisis this year, but in 2014 I want to branch out a little and blog about anything and everything that I want to! – I definitely have done this in 2014. I love the direction my blog is going in – it’s a little more personal.
  3. Get better at Social Networking – I think I am finally getting the hang of and becoming obsessed with twitter! I want to continue that in 2014!! – Still obsessed with twitter. And tumblr. And pinterest. And instagram.
  4. Take more pictures on my blog – I need to do this in 2015 🙂
  5. Do a givaway! – Still need to do this.

Life

  1. Spend time on hobbies other than reading and writing, because sometimes they take over my life! – I have started crocheting and worked on my photography in 2014.
  2. Finish my draft of my current project! – I finished that draft and started a new one!
  3. Finish (and pass) my second year at Uni – done and done.
  4. Be less of a negative nelly!! – Still working on my glass-half-full philosophy, but I’ve definitely made some progress.

2015 goals.

Books

  1. Read what I want to read, and what I feel like reading.
  2. Read widely, read books that are interesting and new.
  3. Stop finishing books I’m not enjoying, it’s okay to DNF.

Blog

  1. Blog honestly.
  2. Write what I want to write.
  3. Take more pictures.

Life

  1. Enjoy the moment.
  2. Write freely.
  3. Finish university.

So those are my goals for 2015, I am so excited for the year ahead, and I will leave you with the genius of Neil Gaiman:

“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”
