Goals, Not Resolutions

I want to be a badass rebel and say I don’t make New Year’s resolutions; I set realistic, actionable goals. These just happen to fall on the eve of 2016:

  • Blog/write frequently. I recently realized that blogging even the stupidest, most random thoughts makes me think in complete sentences more regularly. I’m hoping this will make me sound less like a blithering idiot when I’m forced to talk to adults.
  • Actively learn: read more, be present, and research. I feel like the longer I’m an adult, the more my brain dumps knowledge in favor of minutiae, and the stupider I get. I need to resuscitate my inner Hermione.
  • Get a cute planner and record something I read/learn everyday. I’m pretty sure this is simply a subconscious ploy to get another adorable planner because I already have one and I can’t help but drool over all the New Year’s planners, but whatever.

      I see your point. I’ve got a personal schedule of posts I should make, and I’m going to try to stick to that. I tend to overplan and give up when I don’t meet a specific deadline/requirement, so I have to keep things a little open for myself. I’d like to do a post a day, but I won’t beat myself up over missing a day or two. “Frequently” will mean more than my usual 1-4 posts a month.

    So I’m not the only one with planner obsessions? I’m always trying different ones. I just recently tried the bullet journal but that didn’t go so well. I need something laid out for me so I can make future goals. I found a really cool one, by Nicole Miller thats wider than it is tall so it fits perfectly in my bag. Good luck with your goals and planner hunting!

      I LOVE PLANNING! I hadn’t heard of the Bullet Journal until your comment… just watched the video. I like the system, but I’m such a rebellious turd that I want to make my own system for organizing everything. How long were you able to stick to it?

        Actually fully sticking to it? Like a week. Then it was just a big notebook with me writing down things I needed to remember but in not so good of an order. I like to plan things out in the future and felt I couldn’t do it because with the bullet journal, you mostly go day by day.
