Top Ten Goals for 2015

I'm horrible at resolutions, but here we go!

1. Read More

This year I've only read 57 books, and I'm used to reading 100+ a year. What happened? My etsy shop, I suppose. I really need a job, and since the etsy shop is all I have right now, I've spent most of the year trying to think of new things to add to the shop. Hopefully next year I'll have a better system for the shop (and hopefully a more stable job.)

2. Blog More

Okay, more or less, I think this blog is on seriously life support. There was a time when I absolutely loved to blog and write reviews of every book I read, but recently it's felt more like a straining job that I don't get paid for. ARC's can get very stressful, so I think I need to find a way to make blogging fun again.

3. Write More

Totally different from the latter! I want to enjoy writing again, and participate in NaNoWriMo again like I did in 2012 & 2013. This year I feel like I haven't been myself and haven't been doing any of the usual things that I generally found fun, but I guess that the problem with growing older :/ I have a journal and I plan on starting a 365 writing and art journaling project.

4. Lose Weight

I have to come up with 10 things. This might as well be one of them.

5.  Get a job

So this should really be number one, but I thought I'd add something more fun at the top to keep me going on with this list. I haven't heard back from anywhere that I've applied (even for seasonal positions!) so I don't know what's going on.

6.  ....

Okay, so seriously that last one was depressing, and I can't think of any more resolutions. That's my life. One big bore.





no one ever reads my posts anyway, lol.


  1. I had a backup on Netgalley a while ago and it definitely killed my mood to even read because it did (sort-of) feel forced. But I just took that hit to my % and decided to read for myself (with or without writing reviews) and that sort of helped in getting back that enjoyment factor. So yeah, I guess just find what works for you (that's hopefully void of stress and negativity) and run with it!

    joey via. thoughts and afterthoughts

  2. Yeh I think I seriously need to take step back from the arc's (at least the digital ones,) because I've slowed my reading by a mile just thinking about them, lol! Thanks so much!
