Welcome to day 16 of blogmas.
Every year, I always like to think of new year resolutions or goals I want to achieve related to a variety of things like personal, academic, health, career etc. I always want to make sure I can be the best version of me and setting goals is a good way of aiming to achieve that.
Of course, not all goals have to be related to being the best version of you. I like to include goals related to milestones that just make me happy. What is important though is setting goals you want to achieve as opposed to what you think others want you to achieve. Your goals are for you and no one else.
With all that being said, let’s get into my goals for 2021.
Actually go to university this year
If you’ve been following me for some time, then you know university has been a little bit of a struggle for me. I decided to go on a gap year after I finished my A Levels, then I dropped out of university after a month and then this year I decided not to go. I’m one of those people who believes everything happens for a reason but I really feel like I want to go in 2021. I’ll be 22 this year and whilst you can go to university at any age, I feel like if I don’t go this year then I won’t go full stop. I feel I’m in a much better position mentally now than I was before so I’m feeling quite confident.
Read 20 books
Last year, I set myself a goal of reading 15 books. I was very close to completing it but I didn’t quite make it. I feel I can push myself to read 20 books this year as I’ve found myself enjoying reading a lot more recently.
Reach 500 followers on my blog
I couldn’t be more proud of the progress I have made regarding my blog. My stats went up last year and I’ve met so many incredible people. This year, I think I can get to 500 followers on my blog which would be an amazing achievement for me.
Get a sponsored post on my blog
One of my absolute dreams is to work on a post with a brand and it be sponsored in some way. I haven’t had that opportunity yet but I’m hoping 2021 will be the year it happens!
I’ve lost count the amount of times I’ve made this a goal but I am determined to make it happen this year. I want to feel comfortable in how I look and 2021 is going tobe the year that happens.
Travel to a new place… Covid pending
As I mentioned above, this goal is purely determined on what happens with the Coronavirus. There are so many places I want to go where I haven’t been before. I’m thinking more on the lines of a new place in the UK but if abroad is an option, then yes please!
And that’s my goals for 2021. Have you set any goals? What are they? Let me know!
