2018 GOALS

Makeup in Manila Maj Valencia

I know a lot of people draft up their New Year's Resolution at the last day of the year writing down things they won't do anymore the following year. But as for me, I'm a little bit more results-oriented and I write down things I want to achieve. It's kind of a little post it note on what I should be doing instead of lounging around and eating popcorn on the couch.

2018 GOALS
1. Adjust to the wife life. Learn how to cook.
2. Maintain my new tab called Wife Life.

There will be a lot of changes in my life, one being that I'll probably be moving to the north and doing responsible adult stuff like do groceries, some cooking (I hate cooking), paying utilities, cleaning this and cleaning that. I honestly don't know how I'll go about it or if I can even survive a week of cooking, let alone do laundry for two people. This will be an adventure and that's why I created a new tab on the blog called Wife Life.

Wife Life will kind of be the more digital personal version of my life. This will still include the blogger events that I go to and what stuff I've been doing over the days, and probably a lot of reflections and thoughts. It's going to be a mish-mash at first as there will be an adjustment period, but we'll see how it goes.

3. Eat healthy. Avoid salty foods. Drink a lot of water.
4. Learn yoga.
5. Sleep for six to eight hours.
6. Think more positive.

For these set of goals, obviously, they focus not only on physical health, but mental health as well. I've been hospitalized too many times last 2017 due to my poor eating habits and stressed out mind. I've been sleeping for only four hours a day for the past three years due to my work, and I've really seen how it's taken a toll on my body. 

I think the most difficult goal would be drinking a lot of water and avoiding salty foods. I can eat anything with bagoong and I love soy sauce. I eat any kind of viand, vegetable or fruit with bagoong. It is kind of weird if you imagine me eating apples with bagoong and a ripe mango being dipped into soy sauce. So yeah, I really hope I can lessen my intake. 

Yoga is something I also want to learn and do simply because it helps with breathing. I have seasonal asthma which makes it difficult for me whenever there's a change in weather or temperature and it really sucks. It's like the air that I'm inhaling isn't enough and I have to really struggle for more air. I think I'll download an app first or watch videos and see before enrolling in a class.

7. Visit mom monthly.
We go to the cemetery monthly, and with me moving like four hours away from Manila and six hours away from Laguna, I really hope I can still do this monthly. It's just a few hours of my month that I have to sacrifice to spend time with my mom. Sigh, we never really know what we have until they're gone.

8. Travel with Reg.
With my strict family, it's very, very, very, very difficult (I don't know if I emphasized that enough) to go on a vacation, let alone if you're with your boyfriend. It's like you have to create a PowerPoint and provide a directory of who you're with, where are you going to go et cetera that it's really such hassle to go on a vacation with Reg. So now that we're going to be together, let the passport stamps begin!

9. Get my blog to 1 million views.
We all know that I kind of abandoned my blog last 2017. I just really felt guilty that I'm more excited to blog than to do wedding preparations, so I just stopped. I've learned a lot during my hiatus and it also feels like I'm way behind new trends on social media. But hey, I'm ready to go back this 2018 and make my blog reach a million views.

10. Blog at least twice a week.
Along with my lack of blogposts and social media posts last year, I vow to publish two blog posts a week. I feel like my blog deserves a lot of love and new posts after I've left it out of the cold for months. I don't know if I can do it, but I will really, really, really try. I need to make up for my baby here! Besides, I still have a lot of makeup that I want to review and feature and I'm sure you'll want that!

I really want to add a lot more goals, but I'll just leave it here for now.

What's your goal for 2018? 


  1. First of all, let me wish you (although a bit late for New Year) a healthier and happier year!
    I can relate with the "strict ang parents ko" that's why when my husband and i got married, naku parang nakatakas na preso haha!
    Naloka ako dun sa apple with bagoong hehe! Naku kelangan mo nga uminom ng maraming tubig dahil sa hilig mo sa maalat.
    I don't have a plans for 2018. Hindi na ako maglilista ng plano. Basta pipilitin ko lang maging mas mabuting asawa at nanay.
    I also wish for good health not just for myself, but for my family as well.
