Resolutions For 2016 

This past year has been so crazy between getting my first big girl job, going on my first and second work-trip to D.C., having my boyfriend move within an hour distance (this is better than 3 hour we did for the past year), and reconnect with some amazing friends. 2015 was definitely good to me. I don’t actually like resolutions because I never follow through with them.

For the past few years I’ve been giving myself themes of things I want to focus on for the upcoming year. I probably just like doing it this way because you can never really fail a theme. I decided for 2016 I wanted to focus on movement. 2015 was a year of so many firsts but it also felt like I was going backwards in certain areas of my life, I chose the safe route in a lot of regards. I moved back in with my family, in my hometown, when I couldn’t find a job elsewhere. So this year I want to start moving again. So here is my list of 10 resolutions/goals for 2016 (bookish and otherwise) that I feel fit into my desire to move again.


  • Find a book club to join
  • Read one of my backlisted a month
  • Read 12 books on my Classics Book Club Challenge list. (ideally I’ll read more but this one-a-month goal is doable)
  • Purge my bookshelf…at some point, I have all year after all
  • Read more diversity (in authors and genres and characters and all of the above).


  • Take more pictures (for the blog and otherwise)
  • Write 3 posts a week…every week
  • Begin the self-hosting process


  • Become more financially literate and responsible
  • Begin the long-decent towards getting back into shape

      Oh I’m the same way, I’ve looked a little and can’t seem to find any. Have u looked at doing online ones at all? I did one for awhile but I didn’t think it was as fun as physically meeting up with people.

    I definitely recommend joining a book club! I joined one through FYA (Forever Young Adult) – check their website to see if they have a group near you. And I think reading diversely is a really great goal as well, something I’m hoping to work on this year!
