18 Goals For 2018

Happy New Year, everyone!

To kick off the new year, I'm sharing some of the goals I want to accomplish this year:

1. Hit 150,000 views.

This year, I hit 100,000 page views and that was a huge milestone for me. Shoutout to you guys for being absolutely incredible.

2. Finish my first year of college with all A's and B's.

This past fall, I finished the semester off with all A's and A-'s. I am pleased to announce that I made the Dean's List! I'm so proud of myself. I'm hoping to continue those grades throughout the spring semester.

3. Stick to a consistent workout schedule.

This fall, I've been able to stick to a fairly consistent workout schedule. I worked out on Monday and Wednesday mornings. Fingers crossed I'm able to keep a consistent workout schedule this coming semester.

4. Volunteer somewhere this summer.

Giving back to my community is very important to me. I'm hoping to volunteer my time at a hospital or local charity this summer.

5. Obtain an internship.

Somewhere in the mix, I'd also like to obtain an internship. For those of you that don't know, I am majoring in psychology. Hopefully I can get an internship at a counseling center or something like that.

6. Give my closet a deep clean.

I am a college girl-- it's time I get rid of those "grungey" t-shirts I thought were so trendy in high school.

7. Drink. More. Water.

I've noticed that when I cut soda and other caffeinated beverages out of my diet, my skin is radiant and clear. My goal is to drink more water this year in order to keep my skin happy.

8. Workout at least twice a week.

Going off of formulating a consistent workout schedule, I would like to exercise at least twice a week. This semester, I was able to accomplish that (for the most part). Every now and then, I go to the gym to play basketball. It's actually a lot of fun!

9. Travel some place I've never been before.

It could be a park. It could be Hawaii. Either way, I want to travel.

10. Complete a Pinterest workout challenge.

I've seen a number of ab workouts and squat challenges. I'm determined to try one of them and conquer it.

11. Try something new.

I know-- this is super vague. I'd just like to try something new. College is all about making memories and trying new things. Let's do it!

12. Collaborate with another blogger.

Hey bloggers, if you're interested, comment below!

13. Blog consistently. (Every other week!)

College. Is. Stressful. Finding time to breathe, let alone create a blog post, is almost impossible. Instead of posting once a week, I am going to start posting once every other week. I apologize in advance.

14. Give my blog a makeover.

I'm definitely down for trying a new layout. We'll see what I decide in the months to come.

15. Collaborate with 10 companies.

This year, I worked with so many companies and it has been an incredible experience. I'm hoping to continue that trend this year.

16. Make more videos.

I made a few videos this year. I'm hoping to make some more next year. I really enjoy putting them together.

17. Engage more in the blogging community.

Twitter chats, I'm coming for ya!

18. Start a prayer journal. Or just pray more often.

I saw this idea on Pinterest and would love to try it.

Question of the Week: What's your #1 goal for the new year?


  1. Good luck with all of your goals for this year! I hope you make it to 150.000 pageviews, that's huge. I didn't set any goals for myself this year (I just want to grow my blog but didn't think of any numbers I'd like to reach) and I feel so lost now, hahaha. Maybe I should set some goals now anyway.

    1. Thanks so much for reading & commenting, Envy! Yes, I definitely recommend setting goals! Just little ones. xoxo

  2. These are great goals and realistic too. I cant wait to see all that you accomplish this new year (: I am also studying psychology but since I am leaning towards social work my first internship last year was at a family and children services center. I got my internship from my school. Definitely asked your institution if they have recommendations that fit your interests.
