The Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge is hosted by Long and Short Reviews. This week’s topic is: my goals for 2021.
I’m not one for resolutions, but goals I can handle. Why? Because goals are something to aim for rather than something you’re held to accomplishing. Does that make sense?
My reading goals for 2021 are simple. First, I want to hit my Goodreads Challenge Goal of 100 books. I managed 108 last year, so that shouldn’t be an issue. Second, I want to read at least one print book a month since I have so many piling up around the house. I think that’s obtainable, too.
I’m aiming to be more active. I did pretty good for most of 2020 with my Peloton and all the classes that come with it outside of the bike. But I fell off big time in November, due to some personal issues.
I’m hoping to garden more as well, since I’ve already got some small things going at the moment. My eggplant is doing well, as are my herbs. In October, I planted garlic, but who the heck knows what’s going on with that. Did you know it takes nine months for garlic to grow? NINE. MONTHS. So, I won’t even know until springtime whether it was a wasted effort or not. But it’s okay, because I had the joy of planting Transylvanian garlic while listening to the audiobook of Dracula. Yes, yes, I did that on purpose because I’m an epic dork.
Lastly, I hope to participate in more memes and regular blogging. This past year was a rough one for me, even before COVID-19 became an issue, so doing the simple things, the things that I’d always done and had had fun with fell by the wayside. I’m hoping that 2021 leads to better things for me. To quote Gary Allan, “I can’t say that I’m doing great but I think I’m getting well.” What more can I ask for?
