2017 New Year’s Goals

Happy New Year! It seems like just a few months ago I was scheduling posts and getting Born To Be Bright ready to launch but it’s been exactly a year.  I’m so lucky that I was pretty happy in 2016, but I am just a goal-oriented person and I just have to make a list of goals for the year.

Read more, especially since this year I’m trying to de-stress in all aspects of my life.  I hope to set aside at least an hour or two every weekend of solid reading time.  I love reading before I go to bed and it’s such a Sunday morning type of thing to do.

Declutter my makeup, work on using things up, and stop buying too much makeup.  I have a whole post on my beauty goals for this year, you can see that here.  This is such a waste of money when I buy makeup and don’t even use it.

My desk is just a little bit of a disaster with all the notebooks and papers and pens everywhere.  I intend to move everything that’s not absolutely necessary out of the area so I can have a clear space to work in.  My desk is one of my most productive places and it really needs to get cleaned up for good.

Again, I’m working on spending less time on my phone.  I improved so much over 2016 and I want to keep reducing my screen time every day.  I get so wrapped up in scrolling through Instagram that I spend so much time doing nothing.  This will also up my productivity a lot, which is always a good thing.

Finish That 70s Show, I always like finishing a show each year but 2017 is set up to be a year that I’ll be finishing a few with the finales of Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars airing.  Netflix is definitely one of my favorite things to keep me on task which sounds odd but I can easily sit and write posts for a few hours with a show on in the background.  If I need a minute of a break I don’t have to get up and get on my phone which turns into 20 minutes, I can just look over at the little Netflix window in the bottom of my screen for a minute.

Happy New Year!!! Also, isn’t this mug the cutest?!

  • Decluttering my makeup is always on my list of goals! Good luck to you – it’s not easy!

    We’re trying to finish up the Sopranos right now. And I just got Netflix for Christmas so that means MORE shows to watch. It’ll never end, I tell you.

    • Thank you! I loved your project pan series, it inspired me to go and clear out my makeup collection. Hopefully by the end of 2017 I’ll have less makeup than I do right now! Netflix is one of my favorite things, there’s so many shows on there that I just love. I finished Friends and Gossip Girl in 2016 and it’s the best way to relax. The best part is no commercials!
