#blogmas - my resolutions 2018

Hello sunshine!

"You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town..."

Today I want to share some of my resolutions for 2018 with you and how I stuck to it. The next year is at the ready and as everyone I will have new resolutions . I don't beliefe in unrealistic changes just because a numbre changed, but it is a good chance to get motivated to change things you don't like. But actually you don't need a new year to change something but that's quite another cup of tea :D

I divided my goals 2018 page in 6 diefferent parts to split up my goals in these sections.
The first one is travel, because it was my main goal to see the ocean again. At the beginning of the year I felt so much wanderlust and I saved all my money to travel. Me and my boyfriend made so many plans for our holidays and daytrips - we had to discard some of them because of my Fulbright scholarship to study in the USA for 3 weeks but we could realise at least one.

#see the ocean - did it in Scotland ✔
#go to an museum - National Mall, Washington DC ✔
#discover a new place in Germany - Kologne ✔

The next section is fitness, which is the one I struggled most to fulfil. To be honest: my goals changed during the year... but this was a classic fail!

#do the peach plan - didn't finished it in the expected time but I did it ✔
#12 weeks of low carb - who can resist to good pasta or just bread?
#get to 65kg - nop

Let's combine Selfcare and Productivity, because these ones are my menthal ones. Actually I wanted to add more bullet points to the selfcare section but I forgot about it.

#go to the hair dresser - first time in march and second time in august ✔
#average of 2.0 in uni (we score from 5 to 1 - one it the best) - I'm currently at 1.9 ✔
#find a routine - yes and no! I found my routine at home and since summer my routine is not having a routine because of the changes I had. In America we had a fixed schedule which made the routine for us and in Scotland noone cares about what I am doing, so I don't have the same routine every day... so I think I have to continue with this next year

Next section is called art. Drawing, painting and sketching are my passions and sometimes I forget taking my time for doing things like that. So I tought that it would be a great idea to include this in my resolution to motivate and remind me to do something I love.

#fill in my sketchbook for at least 50% - I have a new sketchbook now but it is more then I expected I would draw ✔
#paint at least 3pictures - one for my dad and more then 4 for the frames in our flat ✔
#draw stickers - drew myself some stickers. I'm not satisfied yet, but I am trying! ✔

For the last part - social media - I have to say that this was just for fun. I don't spend that much time on social media to get that much attention as I would like to have. But I think for my amount of efford, I am really good and I am trying my best.
I decided that I don't want to look at the numbers to say whether I'm satisfied or not. I use these numbers enough for university purpose and that is enough. I think I am currently doing a good job with my blog and I like what I am doing. It feels like a hobby to me and not like work as it sometimes felt before.

I think I did pretty good this year and had good resolutions I could accomplish. I am proud of myself especially of my gym-journey and my travel experiences this year.
I hope you had a great year as well!

If you follow me on Instagram you probably have seen my "challenge". So I basically started a challenge to push through the last days of the year and make it the greatest and fulfil all resolutions. To be realistic I can not do any of my goals but I set new ones for the last days to have a good base for 2019!
So if you want to join you have still 27 days left to change something.

What is your conclusion about your resolutions this year? Have you been successful? Feel free to tell me your storie in the comments below!

Merry Christmas!❄
