2017 Goals: Mid-Year Review


Well, it’s about halfway through June, which is about halfway through the year, so I think it’s about time I revisited my 2017 Goals and figured out how I’ve gotten along thus far.

Let’s start with books!

Read at least 75 books in the new year.

Working on it! 35/75 completed so far.

At least 30 of those books must be books I own at the beginning of this year.

Also working on it! 19/30 completed.

♦ Books I want to read in 2017 ♦

» The Martian by Andy Weir

» The Inkworld Trilogy by Cornelia Funke (in-progress)

» The Rest of the Mortal Instruments/Infernal Devices/Dark Artifices books I own (up to Lady Midnight) by Cassandra Clare (in-progress)

» The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

» Something by Michael Grant

So far, not bad! Now, on to cosplay

Finally finish my Sailor Saturn cosplay.

⇒ Nnnope, gotta get on that.

Make a non-character cosplay

⇒ I have plans for this one! Just … have to do them.

Buy a proper dress form 

⇒ Gosh dang diddly done! (Thank God, too, because I was seriously missing out. It’s wonderful.)

Figure out some better storage and get rid of ancient cosplays

⇒ Halfway through this one. I have way more shit than expected…

Well, not as good as hoped, but there’s still time! Now, for LIFE. Hoo boy.

Grow my hair out

⇒ Tried it. Didn’t like it. Chopped it all off again, as seen here.

Take part in NaNoWriMo 2017

⇒ Hasn’t happened yet! Can’t fail if it hasn’t happened.

Write more in general

⇒ Wrote over 100 pages of one fanfiction I’ve been pondering for over a year, then ended it on a cliffhanger for part two. I’m a horrible person, I know.

Do more charity work

⇒ Did I mention I’m a horrible person? Haven’t been doing much of this one. Better get on that…

Walk more

⇒ Definitely yes on this one. I think I’ve hatched somewhere around 150 eggs this year (on PoGo), which is a lot for me.

Mess around with makeup more

⇒ Also a yes on this one! I even got some MAC products to try for the first time, which will probably be a blog post, so stay tuned for that.

I don’t know, I think I’m doing pretty good so far! I’ve got about five and a half months let at my fingertips, so. I’ll get there, I hope!

Wish me luck, and thanks for reading!

  1. You’re doing great! I was just thinking I need to do a similar mid year check up post… Very cool that you’re going to do NaNoWriMo this year! I’ve tried NaNo twice and failed 😦

    Third time’s a charm though right?


    1. Thank you so much!

      I hope so, because something tells me it’s going to take more than two times to win it for me… but I’m going to try anyway!
