Happy New Years!!! 2016 Version

I kinda remembered my goals this year, so that's a plus! And I stuck pretty well to them, and now for a new year of them! Most of them are the same as previous years, and then the others are revised for this year, since I caught on on blogging stuff this year!

1. Like the past 4 years, just read. For fun, what I want to, and challenges, but if I don't enjoy a book, I put it down before it starts wasting my time. There are so many fantastic books, that if I don't like it, then why shouldn't I move on to the next utterly great book? I read over 800 books for 2 of the last years, and then about 500 in the other two, so my goal for this year is again 400! Though officially for Goodreads, it's 365 again!

2. Blog regularly. Reviews will be a subset. I mean posts, having them up on time, in finished form, not the form of the meme, without the actual content of the day. Doing pretty well with this, but keeping it a goal! Especially since this is the year that I put in the content for those that I missed, so everything is up to date going into this new year, and I want to keep it that way!

2. A. Reviews. I caught up, yeah, so yeah, my goal is here it just stay current, trying to write the review of the book, the day that I finish the book. That way, my thoughts are nice and new, and I don't have to struggle to remember some character, or some important part of the plot, or funny little details! I don't want to have to go back and have a ton of reviews to write long after the post went live!

3. Find one new thing that I enjoy doing, be it finding more time to play cards, bowling, or whatever, something fun, so I can have what the parents refer to as "balance in my life" or something along the lines that I don't read as much as I do. I'm classifying this to a "maybe" because I am really busy and all, and while I still haven't done this, I have hope for this year!

4. Catch up. Still things to do, still want to do that I just haven't gotten around to. Stuff like growing up adult-y stuff like a job and housing and such. Yeah. Those shudder-inducing plans. Things I still have to do!

5. Try and spend time with all family, immediate, and extended, extended is easier, and I was up to weekly visits, and I want to keep that up, it was fun playing with the cousins and cooking. Which is harder to do, since I'm back home, but there's the family dinners that are biweekly in warm weather and around Christmas!

What are your guys' goals for 2016? Hope you make them! Here's to a great new year! Happy reading!

  3. I have no doubt you will reach your goal of one book/day. Especially with the practice of not reading books that aren't good. I do the same. If I don't like the first 50 pages, I put it down.

    What card games do you play?

    Love your last goal!

    1. Yeah, I usually make it :) And I play Oh Darn, Wizard, Phase 10, and a few others that I can't think of their names off the top of my head! And I love it, too :)
