2018 Goals Completed

2018 was a very busy year and a lot of goals were completed. At the beginning of the year I posted a list of goals I wanted to complete and now it’s time to revisit them!

Last year’s goals and how I progressed

School

  • Finish making transcripts for my courses to send to universities.

Soooo, this went a bit by the wayside. The school ended up not needing transcripts (like I had originally thought) and asked that I take the required courses for my program online.

  • Complete uni application.

It was a long haul but the application was completed!

  • Get into the school of choice!

The most relieving moment was checking the website and seeing the offer of admission. 

  • Finish off all of my high school courses!

Also, a very long haul, but eventually all of the finals were completed and I finished grade 12.

 

Blog

  • Get blog to 1,000 followers!

Yes!! The blog is at 1,400 right now! Thank you, everyone, for following along and reading all the posts and I hope you enjoy future posts.

  • Get the blog to make money to help out with uni costs.

The blog moved to a new home and then I was able to set up Google ads and working on other sources still.

  • Post more frequently.

I had been consistently posting until university began but making some time for blogging will be a 2019 goal!

Health and fitness

  • Run a half marathon, if I’m feeling crazy. Or a 10k is much more reasonable.

A half marathon was ambitious. But now I can run 10 km consistently so improvement there!

  • Do more ab and upper body workouts!

I’ve been working on lifting and lots of ab workouts so definitely better than last year.

  • Try other forms of exercise and sports.

Mostly, this was just to cross train from running, which I have been working on by strength training more.

  • More yoga and stretching.

I’ve actually been stretching way less than before. But this will be a 2019 goal!

Fun and creativity

  • Work on art more.

I did paint a bit more and do some drawing.

  • And photography.

Definitely lots of photography this year.

  • Travel if there are opportunities to.

YES! I went to Niagara Falls, Colorado, England, Ireland, Scotland and France. Probably the most travelling in a year I will do.

  • Make a reading list and read more.

I honestly don’t remember how much reading I did but I did read a few books.

 

“Adulting”

  • Get driver’s license.

I got the first level of license, G1, but I have never driven still. Since it was just a written test.

  • Budget and learn more personal finance.

 

I did just the other day! A post will be coming on how I budget.

 

Random other things completed

  • I got my braces off!
  • I met online friends, twice.
  • The blog Instagram hit over 500 followers. Woo!
  • Went to (about half) of the school orientation week.
  • Got my first job.
  • Went through my first round of university midterms and finals.
  • Went to school for the first time.
  • Tried new foods. A food photo journal from my UK trip will be coming soon.
  • Completed the SATs.

 

Hope everyone completed some 2018 goals and that everyone has a great New Year!

 

P.S It’s Peri
