Goals of 2019

New Year’s resolutions often have lots of pressure behind them, but I like New Year’s as a fresh start and time to make new goals. If any weren’t completed last year, then they can be a goal for the new year.

 

Goals of 2019

Blog

  • Post more consistently

    • The goal is 12 posts per month, around 3 per week. But, school is a priority so during the winter term it may be less. Once school is out for the summer posts will be more consistent.
  • Hit 2,000 followers

    • Just about at 1,500 followers at the moment!
  • Post more fashion?

    • It’s fun making outfits and it will bring some more blog content!
  • Hit 1,000 followers on Instagram

    • Maybe, possibly?
  • Figure out additional ways to monetize the blog

    • I will be starting to post more on how I blog. Currently have just set up Google Ads but there are more ways possible.

 

Health/Fitness

  • Continue working on running endurance

    • I have just started working on being able to run fairly slowly for a longer distance so working on increasing that is my goal.
  • And then running speed

    • Once my cardio endurance has been built up a bit I can start increasing my speed of running.
  • Daily stretching

    • Got to stretch more.
  • More yoga!

    • I always say this, then I’m always unmotivated to actually do yoga.
  • Daily meditation

    • Towards the beginning of last year I was consistently working on meditation but now I need to pick it up a bit.
  • Plan food to take to school

    • Will be making a meal plan for each term so I don’t get bored of lunches.

 

School/Career

  • Better studying/time management

    • Studying more consistently throughout the term, scheduling everything and less procrastinating.
  • Possibly orientation volunteer

    • Mayyyybe.
  • Volunteering/job shadowing

    • During the summer job shadow some more.
  • Get CPR & First Aid certified

    • It’s pretty much required for all healthcare related jobs so it will be good to have.
  • Maybe, possibly, yoga instruction training

    • Again, mayyyybe.

 

Random

  • Learn skincare

    • To lessen makeup wearing which saves time & money and it’s also a good hobby. As well, as part of health. I’ll be posting trying out products and making homemade ones!
  • Actually legit drive

    • Have to get the next part of the driving license. And practice a lot.
  • Use social media less

    • For better mental health and to save more time.
  • Get more plants for my room and pick flowers in spring

    • I had 4 cacti but now I’m down to 2.

18 Notes To Myself For My 18th Birthday

Tomorrow is my 18th birthday (the Internet keeps pointing out how it’s Aries season, also my fourth Friday The 13th birthday) since that is often considered the start of adulthood this post will be on a note to my future self going through adult life, mixed with “things I’ve learnt so far”.

To Peri

  1. Be friendly! People are always way less friendly than you’re expecting and it’s nice to see people who are genuinely friendly.
  2. Consistently doing things to work towards goals is key and makes them easier to achieve. Make working towards goals part of your everyday habits.
  3. Tea solves all problems, also smoothies.
  4. And good music. Even if it’s what might be considered weird.
  5. Hard workouts are satisfying and it also correlates with doing small steps towards goals everyday.
  6. Always push yourself because you’re always better than you think.
  7. Draw lots!
  8. And take picture to savour every beautiful things in the moment.
  9. Pet cuddles are great but cats might try to kill you haha.
  10. Fairy lights need to be everywhere possible.
  11. Reading isn’t too bad if you’re reading something you enjoy.
  12. Drink lots of water then drink even more because you’re probably not hydrated enough.
  13. To pre-teen Peri, you didn’t make it through without acting like a teenager at all.
  14. But also, 18 doesn’t magically make you an adult.
  15. Doing schoolwork is better than being bored. And nothing good comes from procrastinating.
  16. The outdoors is your friend but mosquitoes aren’t. Otherwise it’s fine.
  17. Good clothes make you very happy.
  18. And always do your best.

This post felt very cheesy. 😂 I’m curious, do you all like having big birthday celebrations or do you keep it lowkey? What kinda of things do you do for your birthday?

New Blog Home!

Welcome to the new and improved P.S. It’s Peri! The blog has moved to psitsperi.com where I’ll be able to grow it more than before.

What’s new and what is the same?

Subscriptions are the same, all of the previous posts are the same, tags and comments are all the exact same as before. There is a bit of a new colour pallet, a new look for the blog! It will no longer be able to be reached at psitsperi.wordpress.com and only at psitsperi.com. And that’s it for the changes! Bear with me as I figure this out, but everything should run smoothly.

 

Thank you, everyone, for following along on my blog journey and helping it grow to new heights! And if you find anything that isn’t working right, please let me know in the comments or by contacting me and I will do my best to fix it.

 

P.S It’s Peri

Fall Bucket List 2017

Fall!

It’s almost fall! Or it already is, but right now it is pretty warm here and I’m in a fall-ish mood so it’s time for an autumn post.

 

A Million reasons to love fall

Fall is probably my favourite season, I may have gotten my love for fall from reading Anne Of Green Gables and it making me truly appreciate how pretty fall is. The world quiets down for a nap through winter, trees turn beautiful colours, the weather cools down, food gets warmer and heavily spiced, drinks hotter, houses cozier. I can’t let fall go by without taking full advantage of it!

 

Bucket list

Pinterest is the best place in the fall, with spicy recipes and pictures of cozy cats by the fire, so it inspired me to make a fall bucket list of all the things I would like to do to really have a good autumn!

FullSizeRender (26)

I will keep the blog and my Instagram updated with posts of doing things off of the list, so keep watch for them all season!

 

What are your favourite things about fall?
