2019 Reading Goals!

My goal isn’t really ambitious. It’s 3 books a week. I can do that. Easily. I read 206 books last year!

But my goal this year is to read more than just romance novels.

Some self-help. Some basic fantasy. I’m going to try all the genres.

Okay, not really, but I am going to try and read something besides romance novels.

I’m currently reading (along with an actual romance novel) “” by Ryder Carroll.

I love my bullet journal. I don’t do a traditional one in a book (I do have books. LOTS of books. Several ones, including the actual that came out this year). But I have a , instead. I got mine from Michaels, and I love it. I can have more than one, and switch them out as I get bored with the color or the design. I have a for my A5. That’s the size I prefer to work with.

Okay, my ADHD is kicking in and now I’m focusing on something different. I was explaining a book I was reading. We’re talking about books here. The planner talk will come later, I promise.

So, my goal is small, but I plan on making CHANGES to what I read. Hey look! That word of the year! You saw it in yesterday’s post too!

As you can see, the goal isn’t too out there. 2014, I read over 300 books. 2015, I don’t think I even DID a challenge. 2015 was a weird year for me. I honestly don’t even remember MOST of 2015 :O

2016 was the full year of me working. I was still only technically part-time, but I remember working 10-15 days in a row. I remember having an “OT battle” with coworkers.

2017 was the year I went full-time. 2017 was the year both kids were starting school during the time Josh would be home.

  1. Oh. 2018. I barely made my goal of 200. I chose several short small books to reach that goal. I read like 4 or 5 books in one day during that time. I didn’t feel like I cheated but I did feel like I could have chosen different books and just dealt with not hitting 200 books for the year!

So, 2019 will be year of making changes to my reading habits. I will read what I enjoy, but I will attempt to branch out. I shared a link on my Facebook (personal, but I will share it right now on my FB blog page).

What are YOUR reading goals?

Project 365: Out of Order

Project 365 and Project Life are definitely things I’m enjoying!

I’m a little out of order, because I’m playing catch-up. I need to do like 9 weeks BEFORE Week 18, BUT if I stay caught up on the CURRENT weeks, I’ll be able to catch up easier. I did post the layouts for Week 18 and 19 already! Eventually I’ll also get caught up with Project Life but forcing myself to do two-page layouts during weeks where NOTHING happened, it’s hard! So, I might, for a few of them, just do a single layout. A max of even numbers, so if I do ever print, it doesn’t look all weird and funky!

In June, I’m also planning on doing some other projects that involve pictures! Something to help make sure that I have pictures to USE for both projects:

Speaking of June, I might have mentioned it, but on the 3rd, I’ll be heading to INDIANA!! I’m excited to see my family, but I’m worried about things breaking. I’m always worried about that stuff. I’m planning on vlogging every single day of June. So, June 01-30, there will be a video up at some time. It’ll be through ANY of my cameras. My cellphone, my webcam, or my Canon A3400. I’d say it’d be with the JVC, but it won’t work because we don’t have a Firewire port anymore. Oh well!
