Somehow we’re already halfway through May?! I’m not really sure what has happened to this year but it’s absolutely flown by. We’re approaching the middle of the year so I thought it would be a good idea to look back at the goals that I set for the year and see how I’m getting on. You can read the full post here of my goals and plans for 2018.
MOVE INTO MY OWN HOUSE
I’m almost there!! We’re still renovating the place but we’re due to be moving in on June 14th. We still have a lot of work to do in the few weeks we have left though. June 14th will also be mine and Shaun’s 3 year anniversary so it’ll be pretty cool to move in on that date.
CONTINUE CRAFTING AND DOING WHAT I LOVE
To be honest this has taken a bit of a back seat the last few months. All of my spare time is spent at the house doing work so I haven’t had any spare time. However, with that being said, I’m having a ‘craft room’ in our house so once I’m all settled in I’ll have all the time in the world to do craft projects.
OPEN AN ETSY SHOP
This kind of follows on from the above comments. It’s taken a back seat because of the house but it’s still something I really want to do. This may have to wait until 2019 though so I have more time to plan and create things.
GET A NEW JOB
I’m so happy to say that I finally have a new job. I absolutely hated the job that I’ve been doing for the last 3 years. I actually only started my new job a couple of weeks ago so it’s all fairly new but I’m getting on really well. I’m still working for the same company as before but I’ve moved to a new department which is a lot less stressful than my old role.
This has come hand in hand with me starting my new job. I honestly feel like the biggest weight has been lifted off of my shoulders and I feel a million times happier. It’s so nice being able to wake up and not dread going into work… And it’s nice to get home from work and not feel completely drained.
I feel like 2018 has been a very good year for me so far and I honestly think it’s going to keep getting better. I’m so excited to move into our house in a few weeks and then I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings.
How are your plans and goals going so far in 2018?
