Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, all you amazing, lovely folks! ❀ I can’t believe 2018 already came and went. My last post served to kind of wrap up the old year before we headed into the new one. I went over how I did working on last year’s resolutions and what some of my favorite things and big milestones were. 2018 was great and all, but I am so excited to venture into 2019! πŸ˜€ With that in mind, let’s talk New Year’s Resolutions, shall we?? Here’s some of the major goals I want to conquer this year:

1.) Skydiving! My biggest fear would probably have to be heights, but my dad has talked about wanting us to go skydiving together since I was a little kid. This has yet to happen because I am a total wuss. My dad has been skydiving before and he loved it, so when I asked him what we should do to celebrate his 60th birthday, of course he would go and pick to jump out of a damn plane! *INTERNAL SCREAMING* Well, my dad is a really great dad and this is a big milestone birthday for him, turning 60 and all, so it’s happening! Full Disclaimer: I make no guarantees that I will not cry like a baby when we go to do this!

I promise you I will be nowhere near this cool or composed.

Yup, I think this is a pretty accurate representation of what I can expect from myself.

2.) Go on some sort of vacation with Mr. Moth! Oddly enough, we have yet to go on a real vacation together despite all the relationship milestones we’ve shared. We’re not quite sure where yet, but we know we want to make it happen this year. πŸ™‚

3.) Complete my GR Reading Challenge set for . . . dun dun dunnnn . . . 25! That’s right, I’ve drastically lowered my reading goal for the year. My reason? I want more time to further work on other goals like writing and drawing. It’s the age old problem: too many hobbies but never enough time. Sacrifices must be made, yada yada yada.

4.) Re-vamp my Blog. Your blog is like your online home and sometimes isn’t it nice to reorganize and redecorate a bit? πŸ™‚ I’m looking to spruce things up a little around here. I’d also like to get a little more structure to my blogging schedule and whatnot, but we’ll see about that. πŸ˜› Changes are coming, what they are exactly remains to be seen. Ooooh, mysterious, no?

5.) Focus on my Creativity! Writing and drawing are two things I really want to make a priority this year. I want to get better at avoiding distractions and really push myself to have my first submission-ready novel by the end of 2019. This is going to be one hell of a challenge (and, honestly, it’s one I’ve failed at before . . .Β  a few times) but I’m so excited about the current project I’m working on, so I’m going to do my absolute best this year! I think I’m going to open up a bit more about my writing and the journey as well this year in my blog so I can kind of hold myself accountable more. I also really want to work on getting more into my drawing again. This started in 2018 so I’m hoping to continue to push myself artistically in 2019.

6.) Share more recipes! I’ve done it a few times here and there on my blog, but I’d like to share more. Despite all the cussing you might here from my kitchen while I’m cooking, it’s actually something I really enjoy doing. You can expect desserts and vegetarian dishes mostly. πŸ˜‰

7.) Health/Fitness. The usual goals everyone has: drink more water, go to the gym more, etc. I really like going to the gym so as long as I can manage my time/schedule this shouldn’t be a problem.

Well, those are MY big goals for 2019, what about you guys?? πŸ˜€ I’d love to read about them. Trying anything new this year? Tell me all about it! I hope the New Year ends up being amazing for all of us. ❀

  1. I was thinking of revamping my blog too. hOt pINk everything HOt PinK!! I have a mate who is scared of heights but only when he can see the ground, so maybe go so high up off the planet that you can’t see the ground when you jump. Also, AUSTRALIA should be your vacation destination. You’d get to meet me and my crazy family and drink beer, see spiders, snakes and angry BOGANS everywhere hehe. Do it! Dooooo iiiiiiiiit

    1. Yesssss to the hot pink on hot pink! lol I think the pink would pair rather nicely with all the gruesome monsters and bloody warriors. πŸ˜‰
      Haha and you may have had me sold on Australia til you mentioned all the creepy crawlies! πŸ˜›

      1. I used to go to school with a girl who was obsessed with hot pink but she was actually more goth not like a barbie haha. She was cool. She’d wear hot pink clothes but have crazy face piercings. Mr Moth will protect you from the creepies. Honestly they’re not that bad. Everyone thinks Australia is riddled but that’s be like saying that in the US everyone is armed to the teeth hehe.

  2. Skydiving?? Good luck with that!! My friend did it and I went to watch her — she had so much fun but I was a mess of nerves! Also I feel you with lowering your Goodreads challenge! Last year I had it set to 100 books, this year 52 — I want to stop reading a large amount of books and instead focus on quality books
    Hope you have a great 2019!

    1. Thank you! I’m terrified, but I know it will mean the world to my dad to go skydiving together, so I’m gonna do it. πŸ™‚
      I agree, quality over quantity sounds like the way to go with your reading goal for the year! I hope you read lots of awesome stories this year. ❀

  3. Happy New Year and I hope that 2019 will be amazing for you! πŸ˜€
    My biggest fear is heights as well and I seriously couldn’t imagine ever going skydiving. I wish you all the luck and strength for that, I can only imagine how nervous you are about it. Good luck with all of your other goals as well! ❀

  4. We have an indoor skydiving place in my town because where I live is ridiculous. It’s sort of a central hub, which is weird because we’re right next to the county seat, which is sadly more impoverished. We also have the biggest mall on the east coast AND the country if you count store space, soooo I’m not *too* shocked that there’s an indoor skydiving place, but I still giggle uncontrollably whenever I see it. My hubs wants to do it, too lol.

    Ahh everyone is lowering their book counts. Mine is twenty, but my brain hasn’t seem to have gotten them memo and I’m still currently reading four o.O I need to figure out how to cut down. I read my Kindle every day and then schedule out three others. Maybe when I finish Phantom of the Opera I won’t replace it with anything else, although…I JUST got a new comic today in the mail *internal screaming*

    1. Omg that indoor skydiving place sounds NUTS! :O
      Haha I know, it’s been so hard to slow down on reading because that seems to be all I want to do at the moment as well. πŸ˜› I feel ya! And oooh, what comic did you get in the mail?? πŸ™‚
