2016 Goals | Resolutions Tag

Hello everybody! 🙂

I’ve made a huge list of things that I want to achieve by the end of this year and continue doing so. But knowing my lazy self, I’ve kept it simple and easy to follow through. This post was almost good to go when the lovely Ashley of Dreaming Through Literature tagged me for the Resolutions Tag. She writes some gorgeous reviews  so do head over to check out her amazing book blog.

Bookish Goals

Reading 150 Books: Last year the goal was 100 and I definitely read more than that. So this time I’m going to push myself and notch it up to 150 books.

Classics Rush: I want to read as many classics as I can manage this year. I’ve always loved classics but they usually slow my reading pace drastically.

PopSugar Reading Challenge: Yep I’m planning to take this on as well because my schedule wasn’t hectic enough!<dripping sarcasm> I don’t know if I’ll be able to complete it – political memoir, an autobiography- these are so not my cups of tea but yell yeah! Bring it on!

Blogging Goals

Schedule: The most important thing and which I almost fail to follow most of the time is a proper schedule. But this time around I really want to stick to it. As long the Internet connection does not give me troubles.

A Feature: I’m toying with the idea of a Friday feature or a meme as it’s more popularly called. Obviously with my disregard for tight schedules I don’t want it to be weekly but whenever it suits me or you if you like it. But there will be more on it tomorrow.

Career/ Academic Goals

Career wise, my only goal is to study my arse off till I get that government job. It’s not like I’m not happy with my current position..I’m not really..but I’m not one of those ambitious people who want to climb and get at the top of the ladder of success. I just want to be happy and satisfied with what I do at the end of the day.

Personal Goals

Getting up Early: Reading all the way into late night has thoroughly disrupted my sleeping schedule which I need to get back on track. And also some exercise/ yoga to keep me fit and improve my week stamina.

Eating Healthy: After taking up this resolution for past a few years and failing spectacularly I’ve decided to take a baby step this time and planned on ditching soft drinks. And also to eat breakfast everyday religiously. I’m in a bad habit of skipping my meals.

Some Adventure: Going on a sole trip is one of my major goals and not necessarily for this year. But it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. Also I’ve never gone for any kind of adventure sport so since I’d have the easiest access to go for rafting that’s on my list too!

Swish n Flick: I would love to learn to magic at Hogwarts but no that’s not what this is about. What I really need to learn is how to put on eyeliner. I mean I can’t get my sis to do it for me forever.

A Happy Diary: At the end of the day I want to jot down one instance that made me smile or happy. Imagine going through it a few years later and remembering so many good moments.


Whew! So that’s all I’ve come up with this year and let’s hope none of us falls off the wagon! Thanks a lot for the tag Ashley!

Now I’m going to tag:

Claire @ Art And Soul

Cassidy @The Little Book Cottage

Alextheshadowgirl’s Blog

Simon @ Sfarnell

Morgan @ The Secret Diary of a Computer Science Student

Until the next post. 🙂 Love,

    And here I thought I was doing well to hit my goal of 52 books read for last year! I can’t even fathom reaching 150. Way to go, hope you hit your goal!!

    Classics always slow me down as well, I think it’s easy to get overwhelmed, intimidated and therefore bogged down. Here’s to reaching our reading goals for 2016! 🙂
