It’s time to see how far I’ve made it. Here’s a list of my goals for 2017. The ones crossed out are the ones I’ve already achieved:
Get a new job.
Live a healthy life.
Make it a habit to be social.
Read 6 books.
Make YouTube a serious part of my life.
Redesign my blog.
Finish 2nd year of high school.
Become a better friend.
Create a good daily routine.
Make a documentary.
Do voluntary work.
The interesting part is how far I am with each goal…
Live a healthy life
I can’t honestly say that I live healthy right now. I’m working on it but I am definitely not there yet. I workout 3-5 times a week which is great but I also eat a lot of unhealthy food.
Make it a habit to be social
I’m social when I’m at work but otherwise I still need to set some goals for each week. I’ve been really social lately but it’s not a habit yet.
Read 6 books
Well, I’m on my third book this year so I’m almost halfway through by April. That’s pretty good if you ask me. With this speed I could read 9 or 10 books in 2017.
Make YouTube a serious part of my life
Since I started BasicEllie (to your left) YourTube has definitely become a more serious part of my life. I still want to do more YouTube but all progress is great progress.
Finish 2nd year of high school
I will finish my 2nd year of high school in June. So I’m getting there.
Become a better friend
I took some time to support and listen to a close friend of mine last week. It was the first time in a while where I really felt like a good friend. I seriously need to to better progress here.
Create a good daily routine
I would say that this is the one I’m the closest to cross off the list. My daily routine just gets better and better for each day.
Make a documentary
My Media Studies group and I made a documentary last month.
Do voluntary work
I’ve done some research on what voluntary work I want to do. Now I just need to actually do it.
I’m not there yet. I want to help someone and really feel as if their life has changed because of my help. While I help my family everyday I haven’t had the feeling yet.
Are you achieving your goals for 2017?
Stay happy, stay Beautiful
