It’s hard to believe I’m scheduling this way early in December and it’s going to be published in 2020. The past year has been quite a ride, but I finally feel I’m heading in the right direction again. Hopefully next year will be sort of a new start, where I can start new routines that will keep me where I’m best.
This year will be full of new things, there will be a new series on my blog! I’ve been buying bookish merch for years. I have 5 binders full of bookmarks and artprints, I have over 15 booksleeves, over 100 candles and a lót of pins. Most of them from small businesses. I want to shine a light on those, I want to find out why they started their business, what inspires them and show you all the amazing products they sell. Because if you support a small business, you help someone live their dream.
Of course I will be back with my queer books series, the day after tomorrow I will show all of you the amazing queer books that will be published in January. And then later all the non-queer books. I have so many new ideas and I can’t wait to share it will you all!
When it comes to challenges, I’m going to retry the Popsugar, goodreads and a-z challenge. And today, January 1st, I’m starting a bulletjournal. I’m going to try to use it to keep the routine in my life. To make lists and jot down ideas. It will never be an artsy, creative journal, but I figured I would just make it my own. I’m not sure if I will ever show you guys, but I’m okay with not sharing everything in my life ;).
As for the rest of my life. I’m looking for a house, I work my ass off – but doing something I love so that’s not bad. I have awesome friends and colleagues that I hang out with. 2020 doesn’t look that bad. I’m not writing down any resolutions because I don’t want to force myself to do something and then be sad if it doesn’t work out.
What I do want to do (not a resolution) is go to YALC this year. I’m already restricted when it comes to vacation, as I can’t leave when it’s bat season (half may-half july and half august-half september). YALC is between those seasons and I really want to go! Hopefully I’ll go with Anniek and her sister.
And then just take better care of myself. I’ve been feeling better and it’s showing in the way I take care of myself, I’ve been sleeping longer and eating better. Hopefully I can go back to swimming every week and I want to try new things with cooking (if you know of an awesome recipe that’s not too fatty (ever since my gal bladder was removed I can’t handle fatty food), please let me know! I’ll definitely share how it worked out).
Are you planning on participating in any challenges? Or do you have any other plans for 2020? Let me know 🙂
