Summer 2019 Goals // Reading & Writing & Swimming + More!

Hey loves! What’s so crazy to me is that it’s been a whole year since my Summer 2018 goals! Since I have a really long summer stretching out in front of me with all its glorious possibilities I decided to make a post of my goals for it!

Bookish Goals

1. Create And Stick To A Blogging Schedule // I used to have a really rigid blogging schedule, back when I posted almost every day. Since then, I’ve cut back, and my blogging is more…spontaneous? Having a schedule and scheduling posts was definitely helpful though so I really need to work out a schedule–hopefully consistently posting 3-4 times a week.

2. Write Full Novel!! // I just write a lot less than I used to for some reason and it’s kind of sad 😦 I just got so busy during the year that I stopped writing as much. I really want to pound out a whole new manuscript/story this summer and I’m sure I can do it!

3. Request More ARCs! Hopefully Get Some… // So I just like…don’t really get ARCs. I’ve gotten three in the 1.5 years I’ve been blogging and to be honest I’m kind of insecure and I wonder why I don’t get more? Maybe it’s all in illusion that people get so many, but I do have over 1000 followers, and I do request and typically never get a response sooo… Anyways, I will resolve to try harder fingers crossed!

4. Figure Out Header Images // I don’t really have header images…I have divider flowers, but not headers because I don’t like bookish photography or anything and I’m too lazy and my broken down computer doesn’t edit well so idk but I want pretty header images lmao.

5. Read Outside!! // This is not the most relevant but the weather during the summer is so amazing and I’m always holed up in my room I should really go outside and enjoy the weather while I’m reading!

Personal Goals

And now because what the hell this is my personal blog and why not, I figured I’d put some of my personal not blogging/bookish goals here!

6. Stretch More! // I used to dance/do color guard, and I quit due to disagreements with the coach/team, but I do still want to be flexible, and since I don’t stretch as much, it’s started to go. I would love to be able to do a back walkover since I can do a backbend and I’m really comfortable in a bridge, and I want to get my oversplit back–at my most flexible a couple years ago I could do about 6 or so inches over on both sides!

7. Exercise more! Swim! // I’m so out of shape lmao it’s kind of pathetic. Summer is the great time to exercise more though since the weather is so nice, and even going for walks on the beach is better than nothing, yet it’s so fun! And I can swim, but not well, and since I’m anticipating going to the beach a lot, and love getting in the water, it would be good to be able to not drown lol.

8. Hang Out With High School Friends // This one is kind of bittersweet. I just graduated high school, and as amazing as that was and as excited for college as I am, I’m kind of sad to be going to a different school from all of my friends. Some of my closest friends will be hundreds of miles away from me! This is kind of our last summer together, our last summer as a group of friends before everything changes, and I want to make the most of it ❀

Let’s Chat

What are some of your summer goals? Do you get more reading done during the summer, or does it not really matter? I’d love to chat in the comments below ❀

  1. Just graduated what is kind of high school, but everyone is 19 (norway haha) and going away for uni after the summer. Absolutely relate to the writing and swimming (I so want to have a regular training schedule again), as well as just seeing friends before we all leave 🌸

  2. I can absolutely relate to you . I am starting my uni next month. πŸ’• Plus as much I had plans to hang out with the friends of high school and yet it wasn’t same .
    I have been blogging for sometime with 2000 + followers and yet I don’t receive many ARC’s.
    Cheers to new beginnings!!

  3. I love how you made all these summer goals–what a smart idea!

    And omg, good luck on the novel! Do you have an idea in mind or are you starting from scratch? Oooh, are you gonna do Camp NaNo in July?

    Also, yay swimming! Lol, I use to swim in high school and now I haven’t been in a pool at least a year. (Gotta go get this pool pass that my summer job gives me…) Eww to exercise tho 😜

    And I love to see that you’re making your friends a priority! Hopefully you guys will return during the following summers and still be able to hang out! (My old high school friend group still tries to do this–last month half of us went to see Aladdin in theaters together! Tho yeah, it’s hard when people stay at college or whatnot for the summer.)

    I hope you have an amazing summer and happy reading! πŸ™‚

          1. Bahahaha,I love it. Assassins tend to be morally gray and morally gray characters are the best. I can’t wait to hear more about it (hopefully?) in the future!
            Happy writing! πŸ™‚

  4. “Figure Out Header Images” THIS^ lol. I’ve been trying to work on my headers since a few months now and I definitely want to dedicate even more time to it + to grow and be more creative and try new things out that have to do with style and composition etc. PS: i also absolutely want to exercise more in the summer but i don’t want to scream it into the void so i’ll just quietly try to whisper it into existence lol. keeping the pressure low. Good luck with your summer goals! ❀

  5. I’ve always had such a hard time sticking to blogging schedules. Probably tried a million times but it always ends up being to much and kind of puts extra pressure on things, making it less fun to write. I’m so indecisive on the style for my blog and header images. So much time goes into making them and then I change my mind and want something different ha-ha. I’m pretty allright with how I have them now though I think. Good luck on all the summer goals and I hope you get to spend lots of time with your friends ❀

  6. These goals are so cool! Blogging schedules are super hard, that’s why at the moment we are only posting once a week because of exams and such. Header images are really annoying, but fun to make! I hope you achieve your goals and have fun!

  7. Reading outdoors is something I want to get into too, but the summer bugs turn it into a task πŸ˜…. Also, that’s so strange that you don’t get many ARCs considering your statsβ€”hopefully you have better luck this summer.

    Congrats on graduating high school and I hope you enjoy your summer before college 😁!

  8. Ahh this is a lovely list, best of luck for reaching all of your goals! I also used to write a lot and somehow, life and other things took that place, but I also want to make more of an effort to write more this summer… and well, all year long πŸ˜‚ let’s hope we can do this! Best of luck!! πŸ™‚

  9. I hope you have an amazing summer and accomplish your goals! ❀ For header images, if you're looking for free photos that are available for bloggers to use, I really recommend unsplash.com. You can download photos from there for the images instead of taking them, which is what I do most of the time!
