2015 Resolutions and Reading Challenges




It's almost the end of February and finally I've decided to focus on what I want to achieve for 2015. Better late than never right?

I did a little reflection on 2014 (post here), and I feel like I did achieve quite a bit last year in terms of reading and blogging. I took a big leap in expanding my blog and really taking control of it as opposed to having it sit on the net without much content. I don't think I did the best job though, which will be an area I'm going to concentrate on more this year. 

Bouncing off my achievements and disappoints from last year then, I want to be able to take a stab and hopefully succeed in doing some of these things!

Reading


My goal this year is to read 75 books. Last year I set out to read 50 and managed to finish with 103. That's just over double my figure and I was astounded with how much I had read. However, I don't want to aim so high this year and then fall flat. What I'm aiming for this year is fairly high, but an amount I think is achievable with my reading speed. 
I'm also still tacking the BBC 100's Books to Read Before You Die Challenge, which is proving to be as difficult as I thought it was. I want to read at least 1 book from the list each month, but they're all pretty hefty and definitely require some attention. Good luck to me. 

Read 75% of my owned TBR Books. I have this problem where I keep buying books and then never getting around to reading them - who else is guilty? So this year, I want to be able to at least get through half to 3/4 of those that just sit on my self waiting to be opened. This is also going to help my book buying problem.

Blogging


I don't want to be too overly ambitious just cause I didn't do that great last year. Posting at least twice a week is probably something I will be happy with, but at the moment I'm working on a schedule that will hopefully work out for both you and I. I'll update you guys really soon about it! 

Getting organised is always a major part. I really want to start lining posts the week before it's suppose to be up so there is content always and I'm not chasing up on posts the night before, or even an hour before like I am now! 

General Resolutions


These are all going to be pretty much repeats of last year, seeing as though I never seem to get them right. I'm pretty hopeless with resolutions to be quite honest. 

  • Don't complain about what I can change -- this is my major resolution this year because I feel like I spend too much time complaining and not enough time actually working to change what I'm complaining about. 
  • Finishing assignments a week before its due -- future Tracey will thank you. 
  • Avg 70%+ at Uni.
  • Workout 3 times a week. 
  • Start writing again. 
  • Create a vision board. 
  • Get out of my comfort zone -- do different things and explore new places. 
That is it for my goals and resolutions. I feel like I am aiming for a lot, but I'm hoping I can manage to juggle them all at once! 

What Are Your Goals for 2015?
