Goals for November and the rest of the year

Goals for November and the rest of the year

Merry Christmas guys! Halloween is over so now it's officially Christmas season! Thankfully, I've already finished all my Christmas shopping you jel? and so I can enjoy the Christmas season without the stress of pushing and barging through town trying to shop whilst my nose falls off from the cold. Instead, I can sit in the German market with a mulled wine that I'm not actually a massive fan of I just feel obliged to drink it cause it comes in a boot and makes a great Instagram photo, some hearty wholesome food preferably sausage and mash with a pint o' gravy, and a big coat and scarf to hide my smug smile whilst I watch people rush around trying to buy presents after work. 

Anyway, this post isn't about Christmas, it's about how the bloody hell it's November already and what I hope to achieve by the end of the month which will probably fly by like the rest of the year. 

Goals for November and the rest of the year

Goals for November:

Reach 750 followers on twitter:

I need to step up my twitter game. I'm one of those annoying people who just posts links to my latest posts and the occasional angry tweet to my bus service. I want to start tweeting actual thoughts and shit to let you guys into my life a bit more and to show off my dazzling personality lol so I thought I'd set myself a goal of getting new followers too I'd like to reach 1000 by the end of the year.

Post every day on my blog:

I posted every day near enough in October, but I don't feel satisfied with my efforts: I missed around 5-6 days and I don't feel like I tried my best. Therefore, I'm going to try and blog every day this month too and but my all into every piece of content I produce.

Post every day on Instagram:

 As some of you may know, instead of just posting a photo on Instagram, I like to include a lengthy caption about my life at the moment: a bit like a mini blog post. Because of this, sometimes I literally just can't be arsed to post a photo on Instagram because I don't want to write a lengthy caption but this month, I'm going to try and post every day with my mini blog post captions. Also, I'm scrapping my theme cause lol I have so many nice photos I feel I can't post cause it'll 'ruin' my grid.

Start posting videos regularly:

I'm going to start weekly vlogging and see how we all like it - I may absolutely hate it, you guys may hate it, so let's take this month to experiment yeah? I'm also going to be creating more animated videos because it's super fun and I love how it makes my posts more visual. 

Littler personal goals:

  • Go to bed earlier
  • Read every night
  • Practise self-love/self-care

Goals for November and the rest of the year

Goals for the rest of the year:

Recite a poem at the freeway poets event:

In February, I went to my first ever poetry event, that same night was the night anxiety came knocking on my door and so I made a promise to myself that I would recite a poem at the event before the end of the year just to say a big 'fuck you' to my anxiety.

Start exercising twice a week:

I know it's not a massive amount, but it's more than I do now. I want my body to feel healthy so I'm going to either go swimming or do a workout at home in hopes to get into the habit before the new year then I can carry on lol.

Read every night:

I love reading, I have time for reading, I own lots of books thankfully cause lol hello library debt my old friend, but for some reason, I hardly ever read. So I'm going to try and get into the swing of picking up a book every night before bed 'cause it helps you have a fab night sleep

Reach 1000 on twitter and 1,150 on Instagram

I know this isn't a numbers game, but in reality, numbers show progress. Followers also help you work with brands and gain connections, so I'd like to reach these before the end of the year to give me some rounded figures to start the new year with.

What are your goals for November and the rest of the year?


  1. I feel like I'm really bad at twitter as well but the main problem is that my life is just pretty boring atm because of school so I never know what to tweet about :') Still, my one goal for this month is to focus on school & do well on my final written exams. Oh and also finally finding the perfect graduation outfit :) I hope you'll have a great month x


    1. Lol yeah I get you, I think my problem with twitter is the character count though, I get annoyed when it wont fit so I end up not tweeting it aha and ooh yes I remember you saying your finals are in December? Good luck lovely! x

  2. One of my goals this month is start sleeping earlier as well. I used to go to bed at 2 am but now I sleep at 4 am! It's gotten crazy so I want to fix it. ♥

    1. Ahh that's not good, maybe try staying up all night so you go to sleep around 9/10pm? That's how I used to fix my sleeping pattern lol x
