I haven’t written a blog post in almost three months. So, hello, how are you? How’s your mental health? Have you drank enough water today?
Nothing is really new with me. I’m still isolated at Mark’s place trying to keep sane because, pandemic. COVID-19 numbers are the highest they have ever been in Ontario so I am stirring in my isolation bubble, wearing a mask when I need to go outside, and WILL NEVER TAKE FOR GRANTED TRAVELLING, GOING TO RESTAURANTS, OR HUGGING EVER AGAIN!
This past year has been a shit show, to say the least.
I turned 30 back in October and had a fantastic birthday despite the tumultuous year. If you’ve been around for awhile you know that for every birthday I list out goals for myself, except last year. The last time I made birthday goals was when I turned 28. During my 29th year of life, things were fuzzy. I was let go from an incredible job due to COVID-19 and saw myself back at square one, navigating next steps and applying for jobs during a pandemic. This was one of the main reasons why I did not make goals for myself at 29, I could barely see five minutes of my life in front of me.
Now that I’m 30 and have a new job in social media management (which I love!) I feel more comfortable setting new goals for myself. Before we do that, let’s look back at my goals from 28 years old and see how I did:
1. Purchase property
I am obsessed with this tiny space I call home. I’ve been living here for almost two years, CRAZY!
2. Donate blood
Would do again.
3. Travel to Portugal
You can read about my trip to Portugal here and here.
4. Write a book (or at least, on my way)
I should really stop with this…
5. Secret mission I can’t talk about, but next birthday I will tell you
I honestly do not remember what my goal was here, lol lol lol.
Below are the goals I will strive to achieve during my 30th year of life:
1. Travel literally anywhere, if restrictions allow
2. Install new kitchen counter tops, if restrictions allow
3. Start a creative Instagram account
4. Support more Canadian small businesses
5. Open up TFSA & RSP accounts
Oh, one more thing. I made a video about the 30 things I’m happy I did before 30. 🖤 It would mean the world to me if you would watch! Also, thank you for reading this far and for sticking around because with Instagram and TikTok ruling the content world, who reads blog posts anymore? You do, and that’s why I love you.
