I realise that just the other day I wrote about how long term goals aren’t for me and the futility of dreams, but yes, this is a series of goals in the form of a bucket list. While big long term goals aren’t for me, short term ones defin Life Updates, Personal, itely are. Much like ticking things off a to do list, achieving short term goals you’ve set for yourself is immensely satisfying. There’s less than three months left until 2018 (!!!) and a fair few things I’d like to achieve before the end of the year, so I thought that I’d share them with you all today.
Move into a new flat with my boyfriend
Okay, this is kind of a cheat, as by the time this post goes live I will have already achieved this. Hooray, let’s tick it off the list! I always add stuff I’ve just done to my to do list so that I can tick it off and the list feels less daunting. I am now on a mission to make our rented flat as cosy as humanly possible, and I have hundreds tabs open of cushions, throws and candles at any given moment. House plants are the real MVP though, and the main homeware item that he’s really on board with. Expect lots of leafiness in the coming months!
Finish my TBR pile
It’s October and I am still working my way through my Spring and Summer Reading Lists, which is just plain embarrassing. I really want to get through them all so I can start afresh in the New Year with a whole new pile of books to neglect.
Get rid or donate my old clothes and cushions
I have lots of clothes that either don’t fit or I don’t like anymore, and the same goes for some of my homeware, especially cushions. I have cushions that were bought in Ikea back when I started uni (a LONG time ago) and none of them really go together, nor do I really like anymore. I’ve been due a trip to a charity to shop to give them to a better home for ages now, and I think it’s finally time I got rid of this stuff cluttering up my life.
That’s right, I will be doing Blogmas this year, barring unforeseeable disaster. Last year I did Blogtober, and I invented my own thing this year with All-in August. Writing a blog post every day for a month is big undertaking, especially at Christmas when it’s all systems go while working full time and juggling family, friends and my boyfriend. This ought be, er, fun?
