Goals For The Next Six Months.

Goals For The Next Six Months.

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]ell, that’s it. Six months of 2016 are already up and over and we’re in the second half of the year. Can you even believe it?

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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?

    Snap with the goals. Although not the uni one obvs because GRADUATE NOW (well, as of the 18th). I had that goal to do more than the bare minimum because I’ve always got away with just that, but that ain’t gonna get you a first it appears and it also appears that I did the bare minimum extra, on top of the bare minimum… if ya get me. So technically I did improve, but a minimal amount. What I’m trying to say is, try and do more than me and it’ll be worth it. Anyway, that’s my final year tip for you and also chilax about graduate schemes etc unless you think you can balance applications with uni work/think you’ll definitely get one. I only know one friend who actually got onto a scheme and the rest are still unemployed like me. Yay!

    Have a fab Summer and let me know if you’re bored & want a day out somewhere like Guildford (l o l) as it seems we’re both near there!

    You could definitely achieve these goals! I wish you the best of luck, you got this! I also have made some goals of things I want to do/change and I hope I’ll be able to stick to them haha! Xx


  • Aimée Julia Cottle says:

    Good luck with the goals! Losing weight is a big one for me as I am starting to plan my wedding and I know I want to be a few dress sizes smaller before the big day! x http://www.aimeeraindropwrites.co.uk x

    I can’t believe how fast time is flying either, it’s insane! Good luck with your goals for the next part of the year though, I’m sure you’ll manage them amazingly xxx

    We have very similar goals! I’m just mourning and getting over the end of my year abroad but I’m looking forward to starting final year of uni. I think a year away from it was great for my motivation for it, and I definitely want to push myself more. Photography is definitely a goal of mine too!!

    Hope England’s treating you well and you’ve not got post-year-abroad sadness too bad!

    I never really set goals and I don’t know if that’s a good or a bad habit…come to think of it though I do actually really want to improve my photography skills as well. I always feel more and more satisfied when I learn new things about how to use my camera properly.


  • Patti Blue says:

    I’m the same with uni, I only ever do the minimum, what I have to do. I always wanted to change that but I never succeeded! I hope you’ll do better than me! 😉 And I bloody love your photography! Your pictures are always so beautiful!

    “My photography is OK”

    Oh bugger off!

  • Katie Louise says:

    Definitely feel you on the photography thing – with myself. I don’t feel like I really have a style either… If it helps, I do love your blog photography. Always on point in my opinion haha! These are good goals to have though.
