17 Goals for 2017

As we all know, 2016 is quickly fading into the rear view mirror and the next year is fast approaching.  Like I said in my Christmas Tag, I don’t like setting New Year’s Resolutions, but instead New Year’s goals.  To me goals feel more attainable than resolutions.  For 2017, I decided to make 17 goals about improving myself, the things I do, and how I live my life! So here you go:


  1. Eat healthier    This goal is very general because I do not want to force myself into anything I don’t want to do, so this is just to remind me to pick the apple over the chocolate, if you know what I mean πŸ˜‰
  2. Read 36 books     I have begun to read less over the past few months and in the new year would like to get back into my old habit of being an avid reader.
  3. 300 WordPress followers     I love my blog and would love to grow the amount of people who read it! (Just hit 100 today, so I am one-third of the way there already!)
  4. Make one of my own designs     I love fashion design and have recently become good at sewing and would love to stitch something I drew myself!
  5. Post at least 4 times  a month on Absolutely Olivia     (Self-explanatory)
  6.  Excercise for 20-30 minutes a day at least     Staying fit is important to me, plus I love how you feel after a great workout!20160625_151530.pngMe playing tennis
  7. Sew/DIY more things     As you can/will see, becoming more creative is important to me in 2017, and thsi is just one way to boost that.
  8. Go to 3 new places, little or big     It’s good to spread those horizons!!!chicagoChicago, where I am going in Summer 2017
  9. Earn all A’s in school     (Self-explanatory)
  10. Learn to juggle     This would be an exciting little party trick to know how to do, and I have always been jealous of people who can do this 😦
  11. Become more fluent in Spanish     I started teaching myself Spanish last summer, but stopped doing it once school started.  I would love to be trilingual (I learn French in school), and this is one of the languages I want to be fluent in.
  12. Learn 5 new hairstyles     The hair section of my Beauty page on my blog is getting dull, and I need some ways to spice it up!
  13. Journal every other week     I have heard this is a helpful thing to do and would like to try it. And in the future, a journal would be cool to look back at.
  14. Avoid procrastination     We have all been known to do this one…
  15. Take some art classes     I have begun to love art and would like to better myself at it!  You can see some for yourself here!20161002_152656One of my drawings
  16. Run 3x a week     Just another way to stay fit how I like it!
  17. Draw 1-2 designs a week     I draw plenty as of now, but not as much as I would like.

That is all my goals for the New Year and maybe next December I will reflect back on this and see what I have accomplished (hopefully all).  Thanks for reading!!!

πŸ’œLove, Olivia

  1. These are awesome goals πŸ™‚ you got this! Hey, and random thought but for learning Spanish there is this awesome app that is kind of fun to use to learn language “Duolingo”. I’ve been learning German with it and it is pretty good. Also, love the fitness and drawing goals! Keep it up!

  6. I like your goal for 2017. At least one thing I can’t do – juggle. I can try some of your things on the list. Getting all As for your classes is an admirable goal. When you’re a student, that is your main “job.” All the others can wait, except family and friends – can’t make them wait!! Have fun with your friends while having good grades!
