My Rock 'Em Sock 'Em List of 2018 Goals That Will End Up Being 74% Completed

  I know that technically I should have done this at the true beginning of 2018, and I apologize for jumping on the bandwagon so late. I figure that it's still January, still the beginning of a new year, and I can post whatever I want whenever I want. So there. *pouty face*

  Also, as a disclaimer, lists are my jam and I have a LOTTTT of goals for this year, because I'm me and I want to accomplish things but I really also like writing about accomplishing things, so we'll see when I come back here next January how much of this I actually managed to drag my sorry bottom into doing.

  Those are my goals for 2018, it's quite a long list and it's going to be a busy busy year, but I'm looking forward to seeing what sorts of things will get accomplished.

  What goals do you have for the new year? Any that correlate with mine? Are you a goal-setter or someone who likes to just let the year carry them through experiences and situations? Let me know in the comments below!


  1. Those are some great goals! :D And lists! I LOVE LISTS... but I tend to make them too long. Haha! So many checkboxes. Checklists. :D

    And horses. You have horses?! That's awesome.
