Monday Question Two

I was busy doing some other things this week and did not have time to make a new graphic as the other one did not work.  (boo!)  I promise to have one up for next week.

This week's question is:  What are your 2018 reading goals?

For 2018 my reading goal is 75 books on Goodreads and more importantly to also track them.  Because Goodreads will tell you that I did not hit my 100 book goal last year but the truth is I am just a lousy tracker.  I have lower my goal because with all the studying I have less time for reading for fun.  Hopefully I can crank it back up there next year or when I finally get used to studying again.  (it did not used to be this hard)

Next Monday's question is:  What is something that you have always want to do that you are taking on this year?



Friendly Fillins Week 87

Hi everyone! Time for The Friendly Fill-Ins, be sure to add your link at McGuffy's Reader. 1. My guiding word for 2018 is _____________________.  2. A house is not a home without ________________________. 3. I look forward to  this year.
4.  I really need to , because                     . My answers: 1) My guiding word for 2018 is improvement.  I have found my motivation for self improvement and I am working with it.  I do not have to be perfect but I would like to be better. 2) A house is not a home without a pet.  I do not know what I would do without my furry little angels.  3) I look forward to Argos season this year. 4) I really need to study more, because I would like to finish school faster.

Monday's Question One

Image
A big part of my goals for 2018 includes working on blogging and putting myself out there more on social media.  (I am also learning to make my own graphics)  I always love opportunities to join up with other bloggers and see what is going on in their worlds.  I have never hosted a blog link up before but this year I am planning on doing two, Mondays and Wednesday.

This is the first week so it won't be too exciting but I am hoping to have people link up.  Monday's will be a simple question and you can answer as much or as little as you like.  Drop you link in the link list and visit others who answered as well.  Next week's question will always be at the bottom of my post.

Question One: What is a question that people always ask you?

Since I started dying my hair different colours I get asked about it constantly.  Is that your favourite colour? (some days)  Did you match your shirt to your hair on purpose? (no)  Does it take a lot of work to keep up the colour? (yes and no)

Friendly Fill Ins Week 86

Image
Hi everyone ! Time for The Friendly Fill-Ins week 86. Please be sure to add your link at McGuffy's Reader,
1. On New Year's Eve, I __________________. 2. One goal I have for 2018 is ________________________.
3. In 2017, I accomplished . 4. I  in 2017. My answers:   1) On New Year's Eve, I went to the movies to finally see Justice League.  I was glad that I did not pay for the ticket but I am not unimpressed with Aquaman. 
2) One goal I have for 2018 is to take a picture every day.  I am not promising inspired pictures or anything but there will be a photo every day.  I will update once in a while on the blog but you can follow me on Instagram 3) in 2017, I accomplished less than I would have liked.  I had goals but I got unfocused and I did not get serious about them until the end of the year. This year I am already of to a banging success. 

4) I discovered that I work better if I have a list of stuff that needs to get done in 2017.

The first throwback Thursday of the year lands on my grandmother's birthday.  My grandmother passed away 20 years ago last years ago last December and it's still difficult.

31 Goals For January

At the end of last year I came up with 40 goals for myself for the last 40 days of 2017.  I did not finish all 40 goals but it did motivate me to get a lot of stuff done and I had a lot of fun doing it.  I was going to do a list of things that I wanted to do for the whole year this year but I thought as things are ever evolving that it would be better to do one new thing for every day of the month starting in January and just pull over from one month to the next the few extra things that did not get done. Including the things from last year's list that I did not finish.


New for January:

1) Get diath piercing.

2) Clean up my book shelves.

3) Put pictures into photo albums.

4) Designing daily planner printable since I can't find one I like.

5) Finish the one section of my fitness course.

6) Finish one section of my update course.

7) Finish one section of my event planing course.

8) Earn one CE credit.
