My 20 Goals for 2020

As mentioned in my last post, I love new year’s resolutions – and I’m especially excited about the opportunities this new decade will bring. 

I was initially going to explain each goal below, but I decided I’d just let them speak for themselves. While making these resolutions, I ensured they were SMART goals (specific, measurable, attainable, rewarding, and timed) so that I could accurately assess whether I was on track. There will definitely be more blog posts in the future that involve these goals – spoiler alert: my first resolution is to blog weekly! But elaborating on each goal felt too self-indulgent in some places, self-explanatory in others, and just a little too deep for a personal post about new year’s resolutions. 

So, without further ado, here are my 20 goals for 2020.


1 – Blog Weekly

2 – Join More Clubs and Participate Regularly

3 – Volunteer for at Least 3 Causes

4 – Start Thinking about Fashion Sustainably & Building a Capsule Wardrobe

5 – Go Away Somewhere New on a Holiday

6 – Read at least 20 Books for Fun

7 – Engage Academically In and Outside of Class

8 – Journal Every Day or at Least Weekly

9 – Manage my Time Effectively and Stop Procrastinating

10 – Protest and Be a Better Activist-in-Progress

11 – Lose Weight in a Healthy Way with Positive Intentions

12 – Keep a Wishlist

13 – Make More Friends

14 – Study for Exams

15 – Dance and Practice Yoga Weekly

16 – Reduce Single-Use Plastic and Other Waste

17 – Save Money

18 – Maintain and Develop French

19 – Feel Confident in How I Present Myself

20 – Follow and Maintain Morning and Evening Routines


I’ll be checking in with myself regularly to see how my ambitions are faring ; stay tuned to see how this year unravels!


PS: People who have inspired this post:

Artist Asja Boroš makes the most incredible, ethereal pieces – I’m totally enthralled by their magical, matte aesthetic. They created the work that I’m using as my header image – check out their website and Instagram for more!
