19 Things I Want to Accomplish in the New Year

I’ve made it a tradition to sit down at the beginning of every year and think about what I want to accomplish for the next 365 days of my life. By sitting down and setting my intentions with what I want to accomplish and how I want to accomplish it, I usually am successful in what people call a “New Year’s Resolution”.

This year, since I wrote a blog on “18 Things I Accomplished“, I thought it would only be fair for me to also share what I want to do in the next year.

  1. Traveling more will always make my list of things I want to do.
  2. Books are one of my favorite ways to go on an adventure, so I would love to read more.
  3. For me, I love writing, so getting into the habit of doing it on a regular basis would feel great.
  4. I’ve never been a great public speaker, so a goal of mine for this year would be to work up the courage to read some of my writing at an open mic.
  5. Finances and money are such an important topic, but one that isn’t really talked about, that I would love to become better financially educated and save more.
  6. Speaking of becoming more educated, I would love to become more aware. I want to be able to understand and have an opinion on the current events of today, not just influenced into believing in one or the other.
  7. Since this kind of ties in, moving into a new place would be nice.
  8. This year, one of my best friends is turning 21, so I would love to drink around the world with her at Epcot.
  9. Another one of my best friends will be getting married this year. She’s asked me to be a bridesmaid, so before that I would love to tone up and get a little bit more lean before then.
  10. Skin care has never been something I’ve kept up with, so I think it’s ambitious of me to want to get in the habit of the Korean 7 step skincare routine.
  11. I would love an internship of some sort.
  12. As a HerCampus writer who missed out last year, I want to attend HerConference in the coming year.
  13. Last year, I fell in love with stand-up comedy. This year, I would love to go see a stand-up set live.
  14. Live music is so cool. At some point, I would love to go to a concert where I have meet and greet tickets with the artist.
  15. Theater is something I have always been interested in, but I’ve never tried or experienced it. This would be a great year to dabble into it.
  16. One of these semesters, I would love a 4.0 in college.
  17. My inner child would love to attend Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom.
  18. Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is also on the list for the same reason.
  19. The biggest thing I want in life is that I no longer want to let my fear faze me anymore. I don’t want to be afraid of chasing my dreams or desires anymore.

This is the short list of what I want to accomplish, which I guess isn’t so short. But it’s going to be fine. It’s all about perspective, and from my perspective, I’m going to do everything I can to make it a great year.

What about you? Do you have anything exciting going on in 2019? Or anything you hope to change for the year? I would love to hear all about it. It might even inspire me, so don’t be afraid to share.

Love Always,

Kristi My
