2020 Goals

Happy almost end of the first month of 2020!

After the kind of, and almost of success of my 2019 Goals list, I have decided to give it a go again. But this time, in widget form! So say goodbye to the tired format of last year, and say hello to my pretty checklist!

Hello pretty checklist.

The above image is one that will live on the side of my blog in a widget. When I am able to tick something off, I will update the image with one with pretty ticks so that I and everyone else who cares can keep track.

Remarkably similar to my Hopeful Reads of 2020 personal challenge – this 2020 Goals checklist is a passive one. I may talk about it or feature it if I mark off something but other than that, its job is to sit there and look pretty.

Hopefully you will see this 2020 Goals image on the side widget if you visit on a browser but if you visit my page while using a mobile or tablet, you will have to scroll right now to the bottom to check out this lovely content. But no worries, I am just happy that it is there for my own personal reference.

…to quietly breath down my neck and remind that I said I would get shit done this year…

Recap of 2019 and Visions for 2020

2019 was a pretty decent year. Everyone I love is healthy, I have a roof over my head, a permanent job, I went on two amazing holidays, I feel closer to my partner, and I’m in enough of a financially stable position to start looking at house loans.

So as fun as it would be to say that 2019 was a garbage fire, it was actually pretty okay. Don’t get me wrong there were some rough and anger inducing times but I made it though the year without any major meltdowns or upheavals.

So below are some of the things I loved in 2019 and some quick hopes and dreams for 2020.


Recap of 2019

Reading

  • Book Love by Debbie Tung – Filled with relatable comics about loving books and reading, this book was just so wholesome, full of gorgeous art, and it just got me. If have a love for all things reading you should 100% read this book!
  • Super Fun Sexy Times by Meredith McClaren – I fell in love with the sex positivity, QUILTBAG inclusion, and effortlessly emotional story telling within this graphic novel. The fact that it is filled with gorgeous art and superheroes made this book one of my favourite reads of the year.
  • Hottie Scotty & Mr. Porter by R. Cooper – 2019 is the year I fell in love with R. Cooper – they are the Queen of bittersweet angst and I absolutely devoured their back catalogue. Hottie Scotty & Mr Porter was one of the stand outs for me as I keep thinking about it and I already really want to give it a re-read in 2020.
