Edit: So I kind of forgot to link up with The Broke and the Bookish for this. That’s how long it’s been since I’ve done a TTT post.
It’s been so long since I’ve done a Top
Ten Twelve Tuesday post. However, in my blog survey, LOTS of readers indicated that they would like to see more feature posts like this. I was definitely surprised by that, but here you go. The theme of this week’s list is perfect since I wanted to do a blog post about resolutions anyway.
Do one fun and relaxing thing every week. This is the most important goal on my list, as well as calling my grandma. Especially towards the end of the year, I grew so stressed out with all of the responsibilities and expectations I set for myself. This year it’s time for me to step back, relax, and make time for myself every week.
Read 100 books, 12 classics, and 12 books on my physical TBR. For two years I have failed to read 100 books. Let’s see if I can do that this year. I would like to read more than 12 classics and books on my physical TBR, but this is just the minimum.
Read the Bible from front to back. I have a confession to make. I have never read the whole entire Bible. This is the year for doing that.
Write and/or revise one draft of a book. One draft seems like a reasonable amount, given everything else I know is coming up this year for me.
Submit one piece of writing somewhere. I didn’t send in very many submissions of my writing this year, so I’d like to get back into that. We’re starting small.
Blog and comment consistently. Blogging and commenting was strong in the beginning of the year and then not so much. I hope to blog at least about once a week and reply back to comments more often. Maybe I’ll even send out an ARC request this year. Who knows?
Tidy my room. And keep it that way.
Finish my coding side project. I’m really excited about how my current project is going to come out and depending on how long it takes me to do this one, I’d like to start and maybe even finish another one. I also want to completely work through one of my coding books.
Call my grandma and grandpa every week. It can be easy to forget to call my grandma often when life gets busy. I don’t want to forget this year.
Practice my violin more often. This is an eternal struggle. But it’s important.
Attend an event focused around something I love, whether it’s a coding, writing or bookish event. I see recaps of these types of events on other blogs and they seem so fun! Hopefully this year I’ll get to attend one myself.
SATs. AP tests. College. Scholarships. ‘Nuff said.
What are some of your resolutions for this year? What have you learned about making better resolutions and actually keeping them? Is one of your goals to spend more “me” time? Are you sick of New Years’ posts yet? (Mine are done for now.)
