I don’t think I do too well with resolutions & goals, but I enjoy setting them anyways!
So here are my (mostly) bookish New Year’s resolutions:
Read 35 books
My goal for last year was 40 and I was on track for most of the year. Until the end where life got busy. I don’t want to set my goals too high this year. 35 should be reasonable! And I’m including audio books here as well.
Listen to 8 audio books
Out of those 35, some should be audio books. I want to take part in an audio book challenge as well, so hopefully this will motivate me.
Read at least 50 pages a day
More than on track for this. Reading relaxes me and I always have time to sneak it in, even on a busy work day!
Start a Robin Hobb ReRead
Something I’ve been meaning to do for a while now. I just have to hunt down MY copy of Assassin’s Apprentice. I will probably start rereading in the second half of the year.
Post at least 3 times a week
I didn’t like being inactive for so long in the end of the year. I need my blog, it’s part of my social life and my hobby. Not keeping it updated made me feel weird. I will make sure that I manage my time better this year. I’m already feeling much better now that I’m spending more time blogging again.
Watch more non-NJPW wrestling
NJPW is my favourite promotion, but I also really love ‘DDT Pro Wrestling’ and am super excited to see what ‘All Elite Wrestling’ is going to look like. I also want to follow some specific wrestlers who are doing multiple promotions and who grew on me last year, like Pentagon Jr, WALTER, Jimmy Havoc, Bandido or Robbie Eagles. I saw them all live last year, apart from Penta. Hopefully I will see him as well one day!
Grow all the things
Like everything I can. I want to have multiple fruit trees, all the berries, all the veg, hazelnuts, truffles, soybeans, grapes… I want to become the best gardener!
Raise all the animals
We will probably start with that in late 2019. My 2 chickens need some siblings. Like about 8 or so. Maybe ducks as well. Probably ducks. Alpaca babies are very high on the list, I’m already in touch with a breeder. The doggo companion will move in as well. I’ll just start a petting zoo.
Document it all in the form of a vlog
This is going to be an interesting experience.. I’d like to share more of my life with my friends & family back in Germany and this is such an easy way to do it. My parents would absolutely love it and I feel like I should give it a try. Even though I will probably start out pretty awkward…^^
No more Take Away food / eat healthy / get fitter
We’ve been pretty bad for a while, but we live in Pizza-town. I kid you not, there’s probably 10 pizza places in walking distance and don’t get me started on Fish n Chips, Thai, Indian, Maccas, KFC, the 2(!) Hungry Jack’s etc…. But our new place is in the middle of the bush and no place will deliver there, I’ve already checked 😉 I don’t want to lose any weight, only the 2-3 kilos I put on over Christmas 😀 But getting in better shape & fitter wouldn’t be too bad. You can always improve! My new lifestyle will make it pretty easy though I hope.
