I feel so old thinking about my January 2018 self even though it was literally… six months ago. Six months ago doesn’t seem that long? It’s just half a year? Kind of?
Since we’re halfway through the year, I’ve decided to check in on my goals for 2018 and see how well I’m doing! I totally forgot some of the goals here so it’s good that I revisited them so I can do my best to accomplish them by the end of the year (I’m very competitive).
And because I’m taking a vacation in July* and won’t have time to post them, I’m also making a few goals for my 2018-2019 school year! I go back in 5.5 weeks and I’m crying inside.
*SURPRISE! I’ve literally never talked about this trip before oops. More details in my June wrap-up!
I really don’t know why??? I think it’s because I’m pretty competitive, especially with myself. So I love to make goals and check them off and pretend I’m successful in life, when really, I am not.
Plus I have something to aim for! Instead of wandering around aimlessly and randomly, trying to figure out what to do in my life!
And if I fail at everything, it at least provides me with something amusing to laugh at, at the end of next year, wondering how the heck I thought I could succeed at any of this. (I have weird coping mechanisms???)
So to 1) pretend I’m successful, 2) give me SOME kind of purpose in life, and 3) have something to laugh at next year if I fail, here are my goals for the new year of 2018 (which is coming up way too soon who allowed this)!!!
This is my fourth (WHAT) post in my mini-series “Goodbye 2017”, which is the most unoriginal name you’ll ever find!! You can read the previous posts HERE (1), HERE (2), anddddd HERE (3). Go read them if you haven’t.
Even though I am the Mango Queen and am supposed to be utterly perfect, the world refuses to acknowledge that. #rude
I am a Queen and Queens are perfect, but apparently NOT ME because I just have to be this great person who made lots of mistakes as a newbie blogger. Why all this rudeness??? Can’t we live in peace and harmony and agree that I am simply an amazing person with no flaws???
*Note: This graphic is heavily inspired by Sarah and her amazing For All Who Wander graphics. Her graphic designing skills are #goals??? (P.S. You’ll probably be seeing a lot of notes like this because I’m trying to find my “graphic designing style”, so I’ll be going off of different bloggers who inspire me with their GREAT DESIGNING SKILLS and then there’s me.)
The mango kingdom is very hard to rule, and that’s why the mango queen (ME) has lots to do. And unfortunately, because these mangoes are so unruly, the mango queen has developed bad habits. WHICH SHE NEEDS TO GET RID OF RIGHT. NOW.
It’s a very true story and you need to STOP LAUGHING. I have horrible habits (which may or may not have been caused by blogging) and I really need to stop being such a HORRIBLE BEAN.
Because I’m the mango queen and I’m so brilliant, I’ve done a few things already to get rid of those ugly habits, which I’ll be forcing you to read sharing with you today. And why are you looking at me like I killed something??? I’ve never killed anything. I mean, anyone.
