It feels like only yesterday it was Christmas, and only yesterday that I was putting on my big girl pants and brave face, and heading back to Paris for a long 5 month stint. Well, that’s all done now. I guess it’s time to start a new chapter?
I kinda feel sad.
Obviously I’m writing this goals post in advance because I’m not one of those mavericks that write posts and then publish them immediately. How do you do that? Wow. But yeah, I’m actually writing this from my sofa in Paris. Or I guess what was my sofa in Paris. Bloody hell.
Okay well I’m going to pretend that this isn’t horrendously sad and instead focus on making the next six months happy as a clam… yeah.
Ugh I can’t even think about goals for the next six months. Okay. I can do this.
So I’ve actually done pretty well re: my post on doing 16 Things in 2016 so that’s really cool for me. I won’t dwell on them. I’ve also been doing okay on my Blog Goals too – though I was a bit optimistic with them.
So I’m going to set three pretty generic goals, on top of what I have left on those two lists:
- LOSE SOME BLOODY WEIGHT UGH. You’ll have read my post on Weight Worries. I was so over the moon with the amazing response that it got and I’m so glad that you all enjoyed reading it, and relating to it. We’re the best! Anyway, now that I’m home, and have to go back to real world university stuff in October, it’s time to sort my life out.
- THROW MYSELF INTO UNI, PROPERLY. Yet another generic goal, hoorah! As it’s my final year, and I’d like to do well, I’m going to actually work hard and stuff. I’m going to write essays properly and read real books and actually do more than just the minimum. Since I was super little, teachers have always been annoyed at me for only ever doing the bare minimum needed to do well – this year I’m going to actually see what I can do if I try. Go me.
- SORT OUT MY PHOTOGRAPHY. I mean, my photography is okay. But it changes per blog post and isn’t consistent and sometimes I’m just plain lazy with it, to be really honest. Over the next few months especially (hey, summer hols!) I’m going to read a few books, play with a few settings, and try to sort out a bit of an aesthetic for myself. I’ve also been saving a little for a new lens so that’s really damn exciting!
So there we go! Nothing to big. Nothing too difficult. Nothing that I can’t achieve and be excited about all six months! Hoorah for me!
Once I’ve got over the fact that I no longer live in the French capital (give me a week or two, plz) I’m going to be ready to get my arse in gear and sort it all out.
Do you have any mid-year goals?
What’re your plans for the next six months?
