In 2016 I am. . .

by - January 04, 2016



I hope that you guys had a great new years eve and I wish you all the best for this new year ♥ also I wanted to thank you because your comments about my writing on my last post made me so happy, so thank you, that really means a lot to me! Back to today's topic :



I have never liked promises, honestly I'm so bad at them that I - at some point - end up breaking it - yeah, never make them happen for more that I have pinky-promised them, it just won't - so when it comes to new year, I do not make resolutions because, why should I ? plus what if I do not stick to them and so we go back to the promise things and the cycle would just start all over again and it would also be just unrealistic. . . so, since last year I have done what it would be like setting goals to achieve throughout the year, not 'X day or month, just the entire year and it kind of worked so let's see if I can make it this year as well.


2016 bucket list on personal things. . .


1. Do well, stay organized and focus on my career :  I think this is what kept me busy last year that I only blogged once a month but I so really can not stop doing something to do something else, you know what I mean, either way this is something important in my life, and I so really want to get my degree and well, I hope this year will be a great one. I'm ready for ya 5th semester! Woo-hoo:)

2. No more rush / work under pressure : This could also apply to Univ and life just in general, I'm always rushing into things and kind of agonizing and that is just NOT GOOD! I hate that, I so hate it and I need no more rush!

3. Back to a healthy lifestyle and workout routine : I've been eating healthier since last year and also been exercising but because of Uni I had to stop and there's nothing I have missed more than working out, so good to me, so good to my soul and so good to my body - I'm starting today, woohoo!!!

4. Learn how to cook : It's a shame a 21 year old girl has not yet learned how to cook simply because is afraid of getting burn, yeah that's me. But I definitely need to take so time to stop being scared and start doing lovely and yummy recipes. I want to do some baking too and that's weird because I do not like pastries or sugary food. :P

5. Keep on apreciating the tiny things in life / smile and laugh more / and stay positive : This is my way of throwing good vibes throughout the year

6. Keep on writing : My writing is my way to let all of my thoughts out, thoughts that can never be said but just either thought or written, so I've been bad at having and writing journals, except I sometimes try my best to sharing stories here on the blog, but this year, I just want to get better at it so, I kind of just created a place over on Tumblr and well, let's see how that it goes like.

7. Spend less / Save money : Last year when I stumbled upon this picture, it gave me a brilliant idea of doing almost the same thing, although all the money I saved throughout the year, well I have no idea what I'm gonna use it for but one thing I can say it's that I feel proud of myself and so I'll keep on saving my money and will spend less. Best thing is that I act like there wasn't money there and sometimes I forget it's there. lol :)


2016 bucket list on blogging. . . 


Not sure if I will stick to these ones throughout the year and if my busy Uni. schedule will allow me too but I hope I can. . .

*1. Set a blogging schedule : I think it would work and you guys might know when my posts would be published so far I have these options

* Monday - Thursday - Saturday / * Tuesday & Saturday

but I don't know if I'll stick to these but I really hope I can, either way blogging once or twice per week would be fine rather than once a month like I did last year.

2. New content : I asked you and you guys voted so, I'll make sure to bring new content and focus more on lifestyle blog material, as well as in other topics that you and I might find really interesting, so I'll start brainstorming as we speak but if you want to see something else beside these topics I share here, let me know in the comment box below. :)

* 3. Grow my blog and social media following : Since my early blogging days I have not been a huge fan of numbers and never cared about it, it would be kind of like stressing out myself or being way too addicted to it, like obsessed but what I hope - if I stick to no.2 - is that I hope my blog can grow a little, so I'll try my best to make that happen, I think that after 4 years of blogging and everything my blog has done for me, I owe it a lot and I think it not only deserves that but to push it and take it onto a new level but little by little. So, fingers crossed!

4. Stay creative : I never thought I would become a creative soul but I managed to do it thanks to my blog and my career as well and I hope to not only get my creativity mood on only for my designs but also for the blog itself, so I'll be creative as possible as I can as in content aka photography and writing. :)


And those are my very realistic goals for 2016, the ones I have had on mind since late of 2015 or so. Have you set yourself some goals? What are they about? :)

Wish you all have a great day and start of the week! ❣️

  16. Your blog is so beautiful and gorgeously monochrome! :D I loved reading your list, especially the being scared of being burnt when cooking because I can relate too well xD just don't put me anywhere near an oven haha! Writing and learning are lovely things to practice; I am trying to work on my self control and disciplining myself, as it's been a long while since I was in school and my writing skills are soggy! xD xx
