New Year's Resolutions - Progress Report #2

We're about two thirds of the way through the year which means it's time for progress report #2! I found it extremely beneficial reflecting on the first four months of having my 2018 goals so I didn't see why a second one shouldn't be just as useful. If you'd like to check out my first progress report, you can click this link here. I'm wondering whether I've continued moving forward with some of these goals or maybe taken a few steps back. This is what makes these update posts so interesting. You're able to monitor your progress so carefully. I'm looking forward to writing my final one at the end of this year. Hopefully everything is where it should be by then!

1. Drink More Water Throughout The Day
I've definitely recognised an improvement in this resolution. My drink bottle, which used to be still 3/4 full at the end of the day, is now completely empty by mid-day/the afternoon! I've really made a habit of bringing out my drink bottle as much as possible and now I can see that my efforts are paying off. 

2. Get my Restricted License
I've been driving quite a bit since I got my restricted. For some reason, I was a little hesitant to get back on the road after completing my test however my parents really encouraged me to keep up with my driving. And that's what I've been doing. Now I feel completely comfortable driving alone. It's a really great feeling to have. 

3. Commit to my Bullet Journal
This resolution has been going pretty well, like it was in progress report #1. As predicted, I've been able to stick with it all this time and on those rare occasions that I do miss a day or two, it doesn't take too long for me to get everything up to date again. 

4. Learn How to Cook
A little while ago, I had the opportunity to flat for a month with my friend. During this time, I learnt a lot about cooking/preparing meals. Each night, one of us would make something for the two of us. While my friend's meals were fairly advanced, I stuck with the basic pasta and rice dishes. For dinner one time, I found a mac and cheese recipe online and whipped it together in just under an hour. I was really proud of how it turned out. I feel like this resolution is definitely getting somewhere, for sure!

5. Time Manage my Blog Posts Better
In my last progress report, this resolution hadn't really been working out for me and I'm sad to say that the results haven't changed one bit. Here I am again, writing this post on the day it's supposed to be up. I feel like it's definitely starting to take a toll on the way I feel about blogging. If anyone has advice on how to time manage blog posts effectively, please leave it in the comment section below! It'd be much appreciated!  

6. Be More Active on Social Media
These past few weeks, I've been so busy with Uni that I haven't been as present on social media as I usually am. I still make a point of sharing my blog posts on Twitter and Instagram however checking these platforms is definitely not much of a priority these days. I think that once the mid semester break comes around, this resolution will be back on track once more.
Thanks for reading!


  1. It's great to see people's progress with their New Year's resolutions! Major congrats on getting your license and drinking more water! All of the steps you're taking to take a better care of yourself is worth the effort. It's okay to write blog posts the day it is supposed to be up. I've been blogging for 10 years and I pretty much do that 95% of the time! Sending you positive vibes you finish the year strong!

  2. I love how much you have been keeping up with your resolutions and I'm sure throughout the last third of the month you are going to be more active on social media and manage your blog posts better- two things I know aren't easy.


  3. Sounds like you've completed the majority of your resolutions! Think this is a great way to keep track of your goals, we don't often check in on our new years resolutions! Great work!

  4. Nice post--I was actually reviewing my New Years Resolutions today! So far I'm on track for most of them.
    Nice to see you have stuck with the majority of your resolutions too! I know how you feel about blog posting; for me, I can only do it in spurts and I've learned to accept that as it seems to work best. Well done on the resolutions and all the best for completing them all this year!

  6. Sounds like you've been doing really well with your goals! Well done lovely! X

  7. I didn't set any real goals this year, although I have also been making an effort to drink more water! I've been awful at being organised with my blog too, it's so difficult when there's so much going on in life! Good luck for the rest of the year! xx Naomi

  11. Awesome way to hold yourself accountable!!
