My Goals for 2017

Hello everyone!

I hope you've all had a lovely Christmas, and have enjoyed some time off! With the New Year just a few moments away, I thought I'd do a little goals post for the oncoming year.

  • Finish my degree with a 2:1
    I know some people strive for a first at university, but I'd be perfectly happy with a 2:1 as it's the next best grade, and I've had some hardships at university so I am more than ok with this grade!

  • Pass my practical driving test
    This was on my goals list for last year, but I did pass my theory test on my second go! Woohoo! I've been a bit busy, or I hadn't had the money for lessons and the test itself. But, this year I plan to defeat any driving anxieties and get myself a little car! I've wanted (needed) to drive for so long now, as I'm always between my mums, my dads and my boyfriends house so I'd love to sack in the public transport ASAP!

  • Go travelling
    My boyfriend and I have wanted to go on holiday for years, and we've had the idea of using the interrail across Europe. As we finish our degrees by May, hopefully the idea is to spend a couple of weeks visiting all the places we've wanted to go to!

  • Regular blogging
    Now that I've picked blogging back up, I'd like to keep doing it on a regular basis. I don't want to put any pressure on myself to do so many posts each week or anything like that, as this is a hobby, and I want to be able to enjoy it!

  • Keep a diary for a year
    This is something I've wanted to do for so long, to document my life in a diary for a whole year! I think it'd be really interesting to see how the year develops, and at the end of the year look back and see how things have changed, or how I felt.

  • Take a photo of myself everyday
    Again, this is something I've wanted to do for a while, especially when I've seen other people do it. I don't particularly like taking photos of myself, only on days where I feel I do look ok, so this will be something interesting to see how I change throughout the year!

  • Try and achieve a savings account £££
    With the end of my degree being just around the corner, now is the time to start saving up, as I don't know what the future holds just yet! I also have some plans lined up so I'll need money for those. But also it's a smart idea to try and save up towards a house, this will take a while, but it's as good a time as any if I want to have my own home!

  • Make time for friends and family
    I'm carrying this on from last year, as I do feel I've improved with seeing my friends and family more often, which is always hard between university and working. But I am trying to be less of a Netflix hermit and go out and do things when I can! Plus, this past year I've learnt that you must make the most of the time you have.

  • Make more time for myself
    I've seen a few other people make this a goal for new year, to make more time for yourself. I've also learnt that it's very important to make time to focus on you, especially in times of stress or if you're busy. Even if it's taking an hour out to have a bath, or read a chapter or two of a book you've been meaning to read!

I've done these little goals for a couple of years now, and I enjoy doing them. I think it's good to set yourself goals, or try and do things you wouldn't normally do, and help make the next year more interesting!

Let me know what your goals are for 2017!

Love Saffron x
