5 Things I Want To Achieve In 2016

I thought today we would kick off a brand new year of blog posts with a casual, chatty post about some of my goals for the year ahead. I always find that writing down what I want to achieve motivates me much more than just keeping my goals in my mind, so I've picked 5 things that I want to achieve this year to document on this blog!

GO TO THE HARRY POTTER STUDIOS
I guess you could say I'm slightly cheating with this particular goal because we are actually booked in to visit the studios in a couple of weeks! This was something that I desperately wanted to do last year around christmas time, but unfortunately everything was booked up, so I'm carrying this goal over to 2016. I like to think of this as being very efficient and already ticking off one of my goals, rather than cheating!

LEARN TO PLAY A NEW INSTRUMENT
Late last year, I treated myself to a ukulele after falling back in love with playing music all over again, and I'd really like to learn as much as I can this year! I figure a ukulele will be a little less hassle than my guitar, as I can transport that around much more easily, so fingers crossed this goes well!

FINISH KNITTING MY PATCHWORK QUILT
Recently, my gran taught me how to knit and I have absolutely loved relaxing in the evenings knitting multicoloured squares that will eventually be sewn together to make a patchwork quilt. I want quite a big one so it's taking me quite a while but I would love to have this finished by the end of the year!

HAVE 30,000 WORDS OF MY BOOK COMPLETED
I managed to stick with one idea this year but writing did take a back seat with starting university and the endless deadlines that came with it, so this year I want to make sure I get back into writing. 30,000 is only 2500 a month, that's doable...right?

COMPLETE MY READING GOALS
There will be a post coming soon talking about my reading goals for this year in much more detail so make sure to check back for that!

Having things written down like this makes me so much more productive so here's hoping I finish 2016 with these completed.
What are your goals for the year?
