Resolutions for 2018


No, really, I think this might be fun. It can work to keep you accountable. You can use it as a reminder of what you want and check at the end of the year what you have achieved

I never do resolutions, but this year I decided to try something different. I have been thinking hard for 11 days about what would be my main resolutions for this year. I mean, there is so much I want to do an accomplish and putting everything down on a list will surely end up in disappointment at the end of the year. So, I thought it would be wiser to keep them limited and achievable. Of course I’m aiming to overpass them (and probably add more things), but I don’t want to add too much and end up up with “stress and overwhelm” as my first emotions of 2018.

  4. I love to draw! But, I haven’t in a couple months now because I can never, never get the eyes right. I’m a little good at zen doodling though πŸ™‚

  7. So what other language do you think you’ll read in? And do you have any specific titles in mind yet? Or even genres?
    I think that is a great goal, btw…

    • Oh! I forgot to mention that, thank you for pointing it out πŸ˜€ Im planning to read in spanish and finnish. I am still hesitant about choosing a translated popular book or one that is originally in one of those languages. My first pick will be a finnish translated version of “A day late and a dollar short” by Terry McMillan (bought the book ages ago, so that’s why i will star from there). About genre, I’m aiming at YA and fantasy, i want enjoyable stories to make up for the struggle that will come from reading in finnish πŸ˜‚

  8. These are some great New Year’s resolutions! I hope you manage to accomplish them all. Some are definitely easier than others but without a good challenge, life would be too boring right? πŸ˜‰
    Best of luck, Alicia!

  11. Good luck!! I set my Goodreads Challenge for 100 books and I’m participating in the Alphabet Soup Challenge.

    • Thank you! I like that number, 100 books sounds satisfying so satisfying πŸ˜‹. I originally thought about 48 books for this year (4 each month) but 50 gave me peace of mind πŸ˜‚. Oh! I have heard about that one! I thought about joining, but Im intimidated by it πŸ˜‹ I think i might join that one and Full House reading challenge, but I dont want to try everything at once (like when mass requesting at NetGalley πŸ˜‚). Good luck to you too!

      • I’ve never read that many books in a year but I thought it would be fun to try. It’s less intimidating then you think. I participated last year and only missed two letters. The hardest part is coming up with books for those hard letter like x and z and q. Yeah you definitely don’t want to try everything at once because you will end up stressing yourself out over it probably. Thank you!!
