now that we’re self-isolating, i feel like i have all the time in the world to pursue dreams i couldn’t think about before because of normal life (which, sometimes, i wish we could get back to). if you think about it, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be more productive and/or to just lay down and do absolutely nothing without anyone making you feel bad about it (FOR ONCE).
i personnally took the first option. don’t get me wrong, i do have a strong desire to lay down and do absolutely nothing, but i’m the kind of person who HAS TO BE DOING SOMETHING (i must admit, it’s sometimes not my best quality). that’s why i decided to make a little list of everything i plan on doing during this time, and that i want to share with you today!
wo without further ado, here are FIVE THINGS I PLAN ON DOING DURING SELF-ISOLATION:
♡ go through my tbr ♡
while this is something i also do in a normal context, this time is a chance to go through my TBR without buying more books (since, you know, everything is closed), that way my TBR pile shrinks a little (because the way it has been expanding lately scares me). i also plan on reading more than usual so let’s see how that goes!
here are some of the books i plan on reading (of course, excluding the ones i have already read):
♡ read all (or at least most) of my ARCs/books i have for review ♡
there was a time where i requested quite a bit of books on netgalley/edelweiss, thinking i would be declined for most of them. well, i was. but i still have a lot of books to read and review. i hope to get through them during this time. here are my most anticipated ones!
♡ post more on the blog ♡
i know this is a goal i always have but i reaaaaally want to post more. i even have some ideas that just need to be put into execution . and now it really is the time to do so because, as i said before, i have all the time in the world. nothing is stopping me except my laziness. i have no excuse, i really don’t.
♡ draw more ♡
i don’t know if i ever mentioned before but drawing is a big hobby of mine. unfortunately, during the last few years, i neglected it, a lot. that’s why i am hopping to pick it up where i left it. i know i may have lost some skills, but this is my chance to get them back and develop some more. hopefully drawing can become a habit again.
♡ learn korean ♡
i’ve been learning korean for a while now, but have lost the habit in the last few months. i am hoping to get back to it during this self-isolation. korean is a language i find really beautiful, and i really want to become fluent. plus, the korean culture never fails to amaze me.
some other goals of mine:
- not overwork myself
- not develop bad sleeping habits
- not break my study schedule
aaand here you go! i hope this post serves me as a reminder to follow my goals and not fall into laziness because it increases my anxiety.
do you have goals for this self-isolation? if yes, what are some of them? (it’s okay not to have any goal!!)
