April Goals

Back when I used to write on my old blog, I would write this style of post all the time. I think it’s fun to set goals and sharing them with other’s is an extra boost to actually accomplish them.

April is a great month because it’s Simon’s birthday so we will be celebrating by spending the day in Liverpool, doing some shopping and eating ALL THE FOOD!

Get Back Into Using My BuJo

I love journalling. I haven’t actually touched my bullet journal for a while though as my depression has sort of taken over and I don’t have the motivation to do much. This is something that I want to change though. I want to push myself to get more creative again.

Sort Out All My Plushies

If you didn’t already know, Simon and I collect plushies. We have around 500 in total (possibly more) and it’s getting to the point that they are taking over. We have some on the sofa, some on the bed and some in storage. I want to get them under control and find then all a nice home.

Prewrite Some Blog Posts

At the moment, all my posts are being written and posted on the same day. I need to get back into the blogging game and actually have some post for when I’m not around or if I’m in a slump.

Spend Some Quality Time With Simon

As I mentioned, it’s Simon’s birthday in April. I want to make it special for him so we are getting a cake, heading shopping and he will probably buy another build-a-bear while we are in Liverpool. We are also going out for a meal together so that should be lovely!

What are your goals for the month of April?

Buying A New Guitar And Setting Goals

Sometimes, I get something in my mind and I just can’t stop thinking about it. That was the case with wanting to learn the play the electric guitar.

So… what did I do? I bought one!

I’m a compulsive spender, I know. But, in my defense, I even had a dream about owning an electric guitar. But isn’t my guitar just beautiful?!

I chose a sunshine yellow, Les Paul guitar. I bought it from Dawson’s which is great because the staff were super helpful and even answered all my dumb questions.

But anyway, buying the guitar seemed to release a new person who was trapped inside of me. I now have way more motivation and energy. I wake up easier in the morning and I am actually excited to play my guitar.

I haven’t been excited for something in a while because of my depression but it’s like I have changed now!

So, I was setting myself some goals while I’m feeling better…

  1. Learn to play the guitar. It doesn’t have to be perfect but I would at least like to sound decent.
  2. Hit my goal weight of 10 stone by the end of the year. I haven’t given myself much time to lose 5 stone but I think I can do it if I really try.
  3. Stop buying pointless stuff hahahahaha like that will happen….

What goals have you set for yourself recently?
