1. Keep My Plants Alive
This was going quite well, and to be honest is still technically going well. Except for the fact that I introduced the wonderful Coco the Ragdoll Cat into my life. Firstly I needed to remove all plants that were toxic to cats. Which to my surprise was 95% of them. Oh. I moved the majority into my courtyard. Luckily I did, because the non toxic ones that remain get played with and munched on daily.
2. Read 12 Books
I bought Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and I still haven't read it! What is wrong with me?? I started reading my new Nancy Drew collection, and enjoyed it but didn't finish a single book. I have actually read one book this year though *applause* 'The Girl on the Train' which was great and now I'm excited for the movie! I could definitely read 11 books before the end of the year, I am a speedy reader, I just need to actually pick up a book.
3. Get Outdoors More!
I started jogging with my Couch to 5k, which I guiltily need to get back into okay. I stopped with the petty excuse of it being too cold and too icky outside as it was Winter. Winter is over, and my excuses have left, now all I need to do is start up again.
4. Live a Bit More than I Work
This is actually the only goal that I've probably succeeded in! That's right! I quit one of my jobs! Yep! Only about 2 weeks ago now but it's been great so far! I have more time off, and I also have more time to take extra shifts at my only job now too. At the moment I haven't technically been "living" too much as I've been staying home and saving my money. It's only been two weeks! But when it starts to get a bit warmer, I'll be able to walk to the beach for a free and fun outdoor activity! But I might not be able to walk there for much longer...
5. Finish All the Playstation Games I Own, Before Buying More
I also amazingly have been very good with this goal as well! I completed all of The Witcher and both of it's DLCs! What a freakin' great game. No wonder it won so many awards, I wish I could keep playing it. I still have some racing and Gwent goals to finish but I really sucked at them anyway so basically finished! There's some great games coming up towards the end of the year, Final Fantasy, another Kingdom Hearts (not 3..) and the remastered version of Skyrim. Which was my all time favourite game on PS3 so I probably need to get it again.
1. Write More About Cool Spots in my City
I started off so strong this year with my blog before spiralling into darkness and not blogging. I managed to do a few posts about cool spots in the city before trailing off into the distance. It's up there with one of my favourite things to blog about, so I need to get back on that!
2. Get Blog Business Cards
Laughable. One day perhaps.
3. Reach 1000 Bloglovin' Followers or 500 Likes on Facebook
Maybe this goal would be a bit closer if I had actually continued blogging instead of working all the time and playing the playstation in my spare time.
4. Become More Well Known as a Local Blogger
I actually have made some headway on this goal amazingly. I was a guest on a local podcast called Splitting Cases where I talked about my love for the Marvel Universe. I also guest wrote a piece in a local Art & Culture Zine called Newcastle Mirage. My post was about four of my favourite bloggers from the area. Unfortunately I couldn't include how great my blog was. Darn.
