It’s taken me quite a while to work out what my goals, or my resolutions, are for this year. If I’m honest I wasn’t in a clear enough place to make some decision back in January. However come April (happy Easter to those who celebrate it by the way, hope you all had a lovely day) and I’ve decided this is the month of hustling and getting on the grind. I’ve done my fair share of pondering and thinking and I’ve found my goals for the forthcoming year(s). And all of these goals I want to begin in one way or another this month. So, let’s get right into them.
SET MYSELF SOME DIY PROJECTS
I always like to set myself little projects each year. And it usually involves creating something. I’ve done bralettes, bullet journaling, blogging and I love it as it keeps my brain ticking over and keeps me inspired. This year I’ve been planning to make a macrame wall hanging, as they cost an arm and a leg to buy so why not just do it yourself? However I think is going to be a lot harder than I’m anticipating. I’d also love to have a go at making some swimwear, but we’ll see how the macrame goes. So I shall keep you posted!
PLAN A SOLO TRAVEL TRIP
This has been on my mind for a while now, and for some reason I just couldn’t see it doable. But I’m determined to do some solo travelling. I think I’ve always presumed I’d have to go with someone else, but having seen some friends do it I’m very inspired to give it a go. I’m not sure where or when, but I’d probably start with some smaller weekend trips and go from there. So if anyone has any tips please send them my way!
(FINALLY) BUY MY NEW CAMERA
I think this may be a bit delayed due to rent and travels. But I know what camera I’m planning on buying, it’s just getting the dollar. So I’m going to try to do some hardcore saving to finally get a new camera. I really want to get on my photography grind as I’d love to give blogger shoots and travel photography a go. But I’m currently having to borrow my brothers little cannon as my old camera passed away (rip).
HOST A BLOGGERS EVENT
I’m still very sure on the ins and outs of this. But it’s been in my mind for a few months now and I’ve had a few conversations with people about it. But I’d love to host a blogger even or two. I have some ideas, it’s just working out the realistic bits like where when who what how. But I loved all of the little networking events I went to when I started blogging. And it really helped me get comfortable talking about myself and my blog. And I’ve met some of the loveliest people and made some amazing friends through them, so I really want to pass that on. However I want it to be a little bit unique, in what way I’m not entirely sure.
TEACH MYSELF SOME GRAPHIC DESIGN
As well as giving myself a little project each year, I tend to like to set myself something to learn. It’s usually an instrument, but this time around it’s a little bit of design. I really don’t know what I want to do with my life right now. But I do like the idea of being my own boss and creating bits. So I want to teach myself some new skills like graphic design to help me get a picture of what I want to do. I think part of this is simply because I like to have a few skills in my pocket, as I’ll be real, my A level grades definitely aren’t going to help. And then I also want to be able to design bits for myself as a blogger, such as graphics or a new logo.
So there we are, a snippet into some of my goals for the month, and upcoming year. I’d love to know your goals or if you have any tips on the above! Also I’m not really sure where this up close n’ personal came from, or what it has to do with this post. I just had nothing else to use.
Until next time,
