Hi, everyone! Happy New Year! It’s 2019. What. The. Hell. How on earth did that happen, the last few months of 2018 seemed to fly by. 2018 was a very interesting year, I had some good times and some bad times but that’s life right? 2018 saw me do a placement year, go interrailing, return to uni… oh and start a blog (but you guys know that). I felt like I achieved a lot in 2018, both blogging and in my personal life but that has made me all the more determined to make 2019 even better. I already dedicated a post about my year of blogging and my 2019 blogging goals, but I thought I’d make a separate post on my 2019 goals! In did the same thing last year, so let’s do 2019 bigger and better! What are your 2019 goals and resolutions? Let me know in the comments!
I think this is my most important goal for the year, and probably my biggest challenge. I used to think I was really good at being organised, but as time goes on and I become busier I swear to god I’m getting worse. 2019 will see me graduate from uni… I hope. The next 6 months will be mega busy with uni work, part-time jobs and of course blogging. I know it will be an extremely difficult time, and in those situations, I tend to get panicked which ultimately makes me even less productive. I’d love to be able to keep on top of my work, do well at uni, continue to blog without becoming stressed. I will say its probably unlikely. But I have bought a new planner from TK maxx (obsessed btw) and I’m determined to plan my time well. I want to stay off my phone as much as possible (sorry social media) and just focus. Luckily, Adexe watches recently sent me one of their amazing watches (The Meek petite rosegold)* and omg I love it. This way I’ll know the time and date without having to look at my phone and get distracted. Or at least that’s the plan (it’s basically glued to my hand right now). Use the code: ‘BEINGCHLOE15’ for 15% off any Adexe watches (non-affiliated).
Do well at Uni:
Okay, an obvious one. But I really do want to do well at uni and graduate with a good degree. I have spent 3 years working my arse off to do well and I really don’t want to blow it in the last 6 months. I’m so excited for graduation and to end this chapter of my life, but all I want is for my family (and more importantly, me) to be proud. I am often my worst critic, so I don’t want to put so much pressure on myself that I become overwhelmed, but all I’m gonna do is try my best. That’s all a girl can do, right?
This is a big one. I’m not gonna say that I want to visit a certain number of countries or go to particular places. I literally just want to go to some new places, both in the UK and around the world! 2018 was a fab year for travel, I went Interrailing, Copenhagen, as well as lots of places in the UK like London and York! I think I’ll be going to New York and Florida with the family for my Dad’s 50th and hopefully lots of weekend breaks with my friends. We’re hoping to go to Krakow very soon (keep your fingers crossed guys). Once I graduate I hope I can see more of the world, because right now I have absolutely no plans. No grad job, no postgrad research, nada. So your girl will have time. I just need money, but that’s future Chloe’s problem.
Take more photos:
Yup, I want to take more photos. No, not the posed candids on Instagram, or the blog flatlays, just more real, spontaneous photos that really capture the moment. I’m also going to make my Instagram more a representation of my life. Don’t get me wrong, there may be the occasional candid (who doesn’t love a good candid?) but really what I’m saying is, I don’t want a theme. I gonna post what I want when I want. Simple! I also downloaded the one-second everyday app, and I’m so excited to see the end result. I am determined to continue this, I think it’s a great way, to sum up a year!
I reckon this is the one I will struggle with the most. I am an over-thinker, my little brain never bloody shuts up. It’s annoying af. This year I want to focus on me and work on generally just being a more positive person. Focus on the good things rather than letting myself get stressed about the small insignificant things! This is definitely easier said than done, but really I just want to spend this year focusing on lil old me.
So those were my top 5 2019 goals. Now let’s be serious, I have all the little whimsical goals as well like drink more water, actually stick to a skincare routine and go to the bloody gym that I paid membership for. But those are the main ones that I really want to achieve this year. Have a great new year everyone, what are your 2019 goals? Let me know in the comments!
