THOUGHTS | Goals
I know. I know. I'm like suuuuper late in the game.
I don't really know what happened.
It was November, and I blinked, and now its February.
That all being said, I wanted to talk a little about my goals for the next year. None of this new year new me stuff. Just a few things that I hope to achieve over the next 11 months. (Obviously it would have been 12 if I would have written this post when I was supposed to..my bad.)
1. Live With Joe.
Having been together for six years now, the time is finally right for us to start looking for a place. We've both decided that we wanna live within walking distance of town, so we'll be probably be looking for the smallest boxiest flat in an attic next to a main road, but I really could not be more excited to get a place that is just ours ♥
2. Learn To Make Sourdough.
This is a skill I've been saying I'll learn for at least a year now.. I think it's time I stopped talking and actually started practicing..
3. Quit Shopping Online/Buy More Locally.
Late night online shopping is my kryptonite and a habit I that really need to kick. As for shopping local, this is something I have been interested in since my Support Dairy post back in 2015, and I can't wait to explore more of Bath's independent scene in the coming months.
4. Improve My Photography.
I began this process last year, and whilst I am slowly beginning to understand how to control my camera, I still find that when faced with a scene that I actually want to capture, I immediately panic, fear that I won't get the settings right, and switch back to auto.
I long to have confidence in my skills and knowledge; to trust in myself; to capture the beauty in the everyday.
Thankfully, with resources like Skillshare and Xanthe Berkeley's Film Course, I might be able to make that a reality this year.
5. Practice My French.
I love the process of learning something new -its so important to keep our brains active- and I used to practice Duolingo most evenings before bed, but I fell out of the habit at the end of last year, and haven't yet picked it back up again.
Maybe writing this post will be the reminder I need to get back to it...
Did you make any resolutions this year? Or do you prefer to abstain from the whole new year new me thing?
