Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
This week’s theme is Top Ten Resolutions for 2016
- Read 150 books
- I should be able to do this pretty easily, as I almost made it in 2014 and surpassed it in 2015.
- Complete at least half of the challenges I’ve signed up for
- I joined a lot of challenges this year, basically just as a way to get myself to read more books, so I’d like to finish at least half of them, or make it halfway in all of them
- Try to read more classics/non-fiction/adult
- Boring and Depressing are the words that come to mind when I think about these genres/age groups. But I probably am missing out on some great books by ignoring them.
- Weed my book collection every few months and organize my shelves
- I have way too many books that are basically just thrown on my shelf because I get too overwhelmed when I try to organize them. I’d like to fix this.
- Continue blogging and make more bookish friends
- I’m terrible at making friends, both IRL and online so COME SAY HI! I’ve loved the last few months of blogging and I really hope I sticj with it
- Develop a yoga practice that I can stick to and continue to go to the gym
- I was going to say “lose weight” but really I’d rather just try and stay active and healthy.
- Be more confident in my body/self
- It’s been a struggle since I was 12, and even more so as I’ve gotten older (which you think would be the opposite) but it’s something I really want to work on.
- Cook dinner at home more often
- We eat out way too much mainly because I’m lazy and don’t want to cook and I never buy more than one night’s meal at the grocery store. It’s wasting a lot of money and probably making it harder for me to lose weight, so I’m going to try and be better about this.
- Maybe start a shopping ban in general
- I’m thinking of a book buying ban and just a general shopping ban for the future. I need to really write some rules down and then see if I can really do it. I’ll probably take it month by month.
- Clean/organize my apartment
- I’ve always been messy (My 5th grade teacher told my mom he’s never seen someone so disorganized be so smart, which doesn’t really make that much sense now that I think about it 16 years later) and I’ve always had a lot of stuff. I’d LOVE to go minimalist, but I’m too attached to stupid things and I’d probably freak out like those sad people on Hoarders. I really just need to start small.
So those are my goals/resolutions! What about you guys?? Have any advice for me?
