Happy New Year guys! It is finally 2017! Last year sure did go by extremely fast, but it is a new year and it is time to evaluate what goals that I have set for myself and want to accomplish this year. A lot of people tend to set New Year's resolutions, but I set goals of what things I would like to try because I think that it is a better way to either stick to things or build up momentum to accomplish certain things. So let me jump into the things that I want to do this year and the goals I have set for 2017.

Take 9+ classes this year.

I currently have 14 classes left to take until I get my bachelor's degree in Psychology. I start 3 classes Thursday so I am really excited about it all that I am almost done.

Take an archery or fencing class.

I have always wanted to take one of these classes. I think it would be great for acquiring a new skill or for just becoming a bit more athletic. It'd also make for some more interesting cosplays.

Sign up for a dancing class.

I have been wanting to sign up for a dance class for the past 4 years, but I never have. I am thinking that I could probably could take a salsa class or maybe even an interpretive dance class because I don't know how well I am with doing choreographed movements.

Begin teaching myself a language.

I would like to learn Mandarin, Spanish, or Arabic. I will probably teach myself Spanish though since I know a bit of it already. I will probably watch some Spanish tutorial videos and get myself some workbooks or just print out some worksheets I find on the internet for it.

2017: My Goals for the Year + Things To Do List reading books

Read at least 20 books this year.

I definitely need to read more and finish the books that I start reading. I have about 50+ books in my possession that I have not read or finished reading. I always buy a ton of books, but I never get around to completing them. So I plan on doing that along with blogging about what I have read and writing reviews on whether I'd recommend them or not.

Update my Youtube page at least 3x a month.

I always struggle with updating my Youtube page. I know I can update it and do it, but I never get around to completing the editing or posting the videos I have created for whatever reason. Honestly I would probably say that self-doubt is the reasoning behind why I don't completely post or update my Youtube. I will definitely be working on it and trying to update it on a regular basis though.

Update my blog at least 6x a month.

I am starting to get better on updating my blog. Sometimes I update it way more. I do enjoy blogging, but I know a lot of times I simply am sidetracked by life. So I will try to update it more than 6x a month.

Learn how to effectively play chess.

I know how to play chess to an extent based on the matches that I have had versus the computer, but I would definitely like to become better at it.

See Lion King musical in February.

I have always wanted to see the Lion King musical on Broadway and they have finally made their way back to Michigan so I am extremely happy. I definitely want to go since they will be here all of February!!

Cosplay at least 15x this year.

I have so many cosplay costumes that I have not exactly made the attempts of taking pictures of, but I plan on doing a lot of cosplays for this year. I am excited!!

Attend 5 cons.

I know that I for sure plan on attending Colossalcon, Motor City Comic Con, and Youmacon, I went to Youmacon last year and I had a lot of fun. I haven't figured out about what other two cons I want to attend. They will probably be smaller cons, but it would be good to just put myself out there and network with people.

2017: My Goals for the Year + Things To Do List fashion blog zendaya blogger

Start fashion blogging.

I fashion blog to a certain extent, but I would like to actually incorporate my own in my own fashion pictures into my blog. I would do ootd and stuff of that nature because I think I am ready to dive into that even though I am kind of nervous about it.

So those are my main life goals of things that I ether want to accomplish or work on for 2017. I am hoping that I can accomplish all of these things and help myself grow within working towards accomplishing these goals.

Do you guys have any goals that you would like to accomplish for 2017?
