It's 10 pm and I can't sleep (Yes I sleep early and I'm still doing my social media ban so I don't have Instagram or Twitter to distract me.) so I want to do a 2017 goals update. I would say mid-year but we're in August. ALREADY. 😭 This year is flying by and I can't keep up. At the beginning I made a long list of goals and I guess I'll let you guys know where I'm at with them.
♔ 1. Publish no matter what! ♔ Right now I'm editing, I've come really far this year in terms of this book. I don't know if I'll be published by the end of the year but as long as the book is DONE I'll be happy.
♔ 2. Re-start YouTube channel ♔ I did this for a few months then things got heated with one of my videos so right now all my videos are on private. I do plan to get back to my beauty channel but only when I get a job. It's sort of impossible to have a beauty channel with no money because I can't buy new products, etc. I'm most interested in vlogging but we'll see. My writing channel is doing GREAT surprisingly, my first video is about to hit 1k views. 😏
♔ 3. Get Fitter ♔ I'm doing well with this I think. I don't check my weight often anymore but I still watch what I eat and I exercise as often as I can. My stomach is so flat now I can't even believe it, when I get back to YouTube I will definitely be making that "how I lost weight" video. I will say I need to improve my eating habits. For example I eat one big meal a day and have a bunch of snacks and coffee around that and I don't eat enough fruits or veggies. My stomach constantly hurts whether i've eaten or not. 😭
This is still very accurate although I weigh even less now, I'll take updated pictures soon.
♔ 4. Learn Japanese ♔ Nope. Haven't even tried to learn I'll admit and it's really annoying because I've always wanted to learn the language and I do have the time right now. Hopefully I'll get to it.
♔ 5. Choose a Japan Study Abroad Language Course ♔ Another big NOPE. Haven't done much research on any programs simply because I have a lot of unfinished business here in America. Of course I still want to (and will) go to Japan. I'll never give that up.
♔ 6. Improve style ♔ Sort of, but this is kind of hard to do with little money but I think I've been dressing much cuter than I have in years because of my weight loss. I want to change my real hair so badly. Either a trim, color, or both. I'm waiting to start work again so I can get the money to have it done professionally.
♔ 7. Stay consistent with skincare ♔ Funnily enough even though I don't have much to work with the few products I do have really WORK. My skin has never been better and I only use five cheap products.
♔ 8. Get help ♔ Another sort of, I do have a doctor's appointment on Monday but I should have scheduled this ages ago as well as a ton of other appointments but I'm working on it.
Short-ish update, we'll see what the rest of the year brings. 😅😉😏
