Monthly Goals | December 2016 + November Recap!

It seems like it was just yesterday when I made my November goals post, and now, it's time to do the recap. If you haven't read about my goals for last month, you can read it here.

Now for a recap, Sadly, I wasn't able to keep up much with the 3x a week blog post. I went through the process of writing a post and just deleting it. I wasn't exactly happy about them and it lacked some of my personality in it which, is a requirement for me whenever I write my blog posts. Updating my old blog posts did happen, although not all of them. I just did it slowly and I don't regret it. Reading through my old blog posts is really interesting since you don't really know how much you've changed in a year or so until you look back. I wasn't able to collaborate with someone last month, though I do have some collaboration schedules around early next year which I think counts as a success! For book reading, I finished the latest book from the Mercy Thompson series which is Fire touched by: Patricia Briggs. My 1st semester is close to being done which I'm so happy about. 2nd sem here I come!

Okay, so now that's over with, let me make my goals for December:
  • Finish reading a biography book
This year, I haven't read that much books which I regret. I did read some fiction books that I could probably count using both my hands. This time, I would want to finish reading a biography book. The last that I read was Tina Fey's one which I enjoyed but sadly have not finished yet. The reason for this is I want some inspirational stories especially from really successful people, like knowing about when did they realize their goals or wants in life and what lead them to where they are now. 
  • Visit some place that I've never been to before
Sadly, this year I didn't go anywhere else but the mall or the grocery stores or banks, basically the necessities. I haven't visited a museum in years, or tried out a new restaurant in what feels like forever. I have some places I want to visit in mind, so, I will try my very best to get myself there.
  • Be more sociable
I am that person who can go weeks or even a month without socializing with someone outside of the virtual world. I've scheduled this month to be with my really close friends which I'm very excited about. 
  • Enroll for 2nd sem (Uni)
Now that 1st sem is coming to an end, I'm so excited to enroll on my 2nd sem and to just get started on some new subjects / courses.
  • Attempt to do vlogmas
My youtube channel has been really quiet ever since February. Last year, I did blogmas which I didn't complete since my mom visited us that month to which I just spent the days with her since it'll be awhile since we'll be able to get together again. Now, I will ATTEMPT to do vlogmas. Those are honestly my favorite type of videos to watch so I will be trying my very best. So, wish me luck guys! And if you ever want to watch, subscribe to my channel here.

PS: I'm currently 1 week into vlogmas, watch them here.

Hope you all had an amazing November and wish you all the best for December.


  1. Sticking to goals can be so difficult- setting them and trying is such a positive experience though. I look forward to your vlogs!


  2. My November was alright. I don't just want to finish the year right but start the next one right too so I'm trying to make December great.
    I like you goals for the month, mostly visiting a new place and being more sociable. I too also have a book I should finish :)
    Good luck with your goals. I hope you have a wonderful December.

  3. Good luck with your December goals, girl. Happy holidays.

  4. great December goals! I always like the concept of vglomas but I'm not sure will I be doing it myself.

    Tina Fey is so funny...I would love to read her book!

  5. Don't worry too much about goals hun!
    Have a target is a great thing but not if this became a burden, in that way you can't learn anything isn't it?
    Relax and keep on doing your best, if you didn't eached a goal this year maybe it was because you had to do something else more important, it will be for the next year! :)

  6. I also regret not reading as many books as I wanted to. Don't be too sad that you didn't keep all your goals, you tried your best and that's what counts.


  7. Oh these sound like great and doable goals, and I know what you mean about being social outside of cyberspace easy to fall in to a rut.

  23. The thing about goals is if you never get a chance to complete them you can always start over again with no pressure but it is always good to strive for something. Good luck!

    I've thought about Vlogmas, but maybe when the boys are older and I have a little more time.
