Reading Goals: 2021

So, my goal for 2020 was 250 books. I technically read more, as some of them were compilations, but I didn’t want to break them down. I just let Amazon and Goodreads do that work. As of the writing of this blog post, I’m one book away. Today, though I’ll either finish my ebook or my audiobook, so we’ll see if I reach my goal.

This year, I’m also planning on doing some reading challenges. So, since I want to track everything, I also bought a reading challenge journal.

Six of the challenges I’ll be doing :

  1. Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge
  2. Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge: Author Edition
  3. Romance Reading Challenge (each month has a theme)
  4. Literary Escape Challenge
  5. Finishing the Series Challenge
  6. The Backlist Reader Challenge

To make it more of a challenge for me, I’m not going to allow myself to double count books. The good news is that I’m putting a crapton of series starters on my TBR list, so the first one can work for the Backlist challenge, and the rest can be used for the Finishing the Series!

Top 9 of Instagram

I have three Instagram accounts that I use regularly:
1. https://www.instagram.com/tm2ts/
2. https://www.instagram.com/sarahneedsaplan/
3. https://www.instagram.com/binxandkira/

These are my Best 9 of my TM2TS account. Health/fitness, masks, bad lighting and makeup. My favorite shot of the 9 is definitely the top row, middle picture. 😀 I ended 2020 with rose gold hair, and in 2021, I’ll be starting it with purple hair 😀

Yes, most of the BinxandKira account are Binx pictures, but we did adopt him in August and Kira in November, so it is expected. The bottom middle makes me a little sad. Kittens grow up so fast. He was an itty baby, and now he’s a long boi with the heart of gold!

My newest account: SarahNeedsAPlan. It is going to be planner-based. Goals-based. I’ll only be following planner-related content, and my Patreon-related stuff on there 😀 But real life will end up on there, still.

There will be some overlap from TM2TS/BinxandKira/SarahNeedsAPlan, so feel free to follow all of the accounts. 😀 Another goal of 2021 is to grow my online presence. 😀

2020 Can Take a Dive

I spent a nice chunk of 2020 like this. Sitting/laying on the couch, cuddled with something. Stress caused me to do a lot of clenching of my jaw, which led to lots of migraines.

In 2021, I’ll be making my consultation for my jaw surgery. 2021 will be filled with a lot of changes, but the TIME has come for me to make that change.

So far, I have made quite a few goals for myself for 2021. A lot of it is centered around the word TIME. That is actually going to be my word for 2021!

This week, I’ll be posting more about my goals, but the mail goals are right here:

Scrapbooking!

OH MY GOD! I’ve scrapbooked :O I really love digital scrapbooking, and I’m hoping, in December, that I can get more active, back into it! I’ve missed it.

In case you didn’t notice, even the header has changed! :O I figured the theme fit with it, and I went with it!


Kit: Winter Magic: December Monthly Mix
This was, as you can tell, created for my header. There was no template used.
Pics (from left to right): Snapchat Selfie, Bitmoji selfie (it’s changed but I didn’t have one saved), a planner shot, Ethan (with his quarantine mullet haircut), Josh (giving me his usual face), Madison (the day we brought our puppy, Kira home), Binx (our kitten, all proud of himself for getting on the router), and Kira (our Huskytriever, whom we adopted on Veteran’s Day)
