New Year, New Me?

As we approach the third week of 2018 and I go back to school, I wanted to share what I plan to change and what I plan to keep in the new year. I know I have been gone for a few days, but to be honest I didn’t feel like blogging. I had nothing to write about and it’s been too cold to go outside and take pictures. 


  • this past semester was HARD and my grades were decent but I’ll tell you Econ (wtf was that??) really dragged me down and Accounting kicked my booty, even though I enjoyed it. I want to reboot and raise my gpa!!
  • look into joining and being a part of more organizations on campus
  • no b.s. in friendships, relationships and my own bs!! I’m not tolerating it


  • grow my blog more
  • continue to grow my instagram following to about 2,500 followers by the end of the year
  • I want to look into monetizing my blog
  • earning more money through affiliate links. It’s not all about the money but it’s definitely nice!
  • Blog at least once per week from here on out
  • Post an Instagram daily or at least every other day.
  • More Instagram stories
  • Bring my Facebook to 55 likes
  • And lastly get accepted into Like To Know It/ Reward Style
  • start my shop page on my blog


  • I got a Fitbit Zip for Christmas and have been wearing it everyday! I want to continue to use it to track my steps and water consumption!
  • I want to go above and beyond in my water intake and truly keep track of  how much I drink
  • Get back in the habit of working out and consistently work out. I plan on doing the BBG workout program, which I can write a post about
  • I want to continue to focus on having a healthy mind. This was a really big change for me last year with my anxiety and I want to continue working on it
  • growing with God
  • check on my friends more


  • I want to continue to save for a car of my own
  • Save 1,200 this year
  • Better manage money
  • Stop spending it all on food and adult beverages :'( OU is killing my bank account
  • Be MORE frugal, I have definitely improved, but there’s more work to be done

I would love to know your goals for the new year. Are you changing a lot or a little? Happy New Year!!

    I also got a Fitbit this year! I’ve been motivated to hit 10,000 steps every day. I love how it has routes all around the world for you to virtually go on.
