One more day, oh just one more day! Long week? Well- you could say so! I’m struggling to get work done, tests taken, and getting better. Will this cough ever leave? I doubt so. So let’s talk about goals for 2016!
I’m trying to get major things done in 2016! There’s no doubt in my mind that this will happen. My career has changed drastically and by the end of 2016 I will no doubt be licensed in two states. I’m not being over confident, but hell or high water I have to make this happen.
1- Finish my classes, take state tests, and get certified in two states. Two for now but with the way things are going more could be underway.
2- Pay down student loans. Student loans are such a head ache. Interest loans seem to choke the life right out of me. For the past year I’ve been paying more than due to quicken my repayment. I will in no way be able to repay everything this year, the next or the next- but lord willing this will happen soon!
3- Give a guy a chance. I was dating this really great guy, well so I thought he was at the time, but things change and it didn’t work out. I struggle with letting people in due to issues in the past. However in my new profession I meet tons of new people all the times so plan to keep my options open and see what God has planned for me.
4- Diet time. I admit since moving back home I put on the “freshmen fifteen” and some. After conquering studying, I plan to reignite my love of working out. In college I was a big obsessed with working out and hope once my schedule gets a little less hectic I can figure out a workout schedule. I would love to loose 50 pounds but realistically 30 would be awesome.
5- Liven up my blog. Between the Holidays and my site being down my blog has slipped. I’ve just had the wind let out of my sails and need to get back to writing. I hope in 2016 to rekindle my spark and love for blogging. I think 4 years is a tough year and I feel with my blog friends I will be able to power through it.
6- Be more interactive with readers Hello are you out there? You see if you don’t comment I don’t know you are there. I know some readers that comment don’t hear back from me for a few days, but that is something I hope to fix this year.
7- Utilize Pinterest. I admit I’ve been addicted to Pinterest for years, but really am not great at promoting my blog via Pinterest. A few of my blog friends have encouraged me to work on this due to their beliefs I can really amp up your blog. I hope in 2016 I can test this theory out.
8- Pre-write and schedule posts out. I find myself always in a pickle with posts. I have all intentions of posting then inevitably something happens and I run out of time. Most days I look down at 8:45 and then up and the next thing I know time has flown by. I think scheduling post out is a smart way to for all do this.
9- Be social. Comment on other blogs to show support. I know I am so behind on reading all of my favorite blogs.
10- This may be a long shot, but I would like to not spend as much money on makeup. Being Rouge status is simply crazy and I’ve been a Sephora Rouge member for a few years. I love buying new products and testing them. However I do need to sale some of my makeup, because one can only have so much. Anyone interested in a blog sale?
Well that wraps up my goals. These are all very obtainable goals. I see these as guidelines to whip my life into shape. What are your goals for 2016? Doesn’t saying 2016 sound so weird?
