Sam’s 2019 Wrap Up and 2020 Goals

Hey all!

Where the hell did 2019 go? I feel like I just wrote my 2019 goals and here I am writing my wrap-up. This year was really REALLY hard. Work became so incredibly busy that my social life suffered. BUT I still did some fun stuff. Went to BookCon again and my first ALA. Parker and I turned 30 and went to the beach to celebrate. I met PENGUINS! My cousin had an internship at my work for the whole summer and we got to hang out all the time! I went to BookNetFest and was invited to be a speaker. The Nats won the World Series! And so much more. Now that I look back on it, I did a lot this year. But the day-to-day felt impossible.

Anyway, as far as books are concerned, you’ll see my top 3 in our group TTT post, but here are some honorable mentions:

I also wrote some goals, and I did a poor job of achieving them.

2019 Bookish Goals:

  1. I want to read 70 books. Check. I read 93
  2. I’d like to review 50 of those books. So close, 47.
  3. I’d like to start doing more here on the blog. Check!
  4. Increase my followers/subscriber counts. Done. Didn’t hit all the goals, but got pretty damn close
  5. Read more backlist books. Lol.

2019 Personal Goals:

  1. I want to get my pain under control. I’m pretty good on this, I still have bad days, but far fewer of them.
  2. …exercising more. Bahaha.
  3. QUIT SMOKING!! Fail. I’m close though. I smoke probably half what I used to.
  4. I want to buy a condo. Nope.
  5. …spending less. I did actually accomplish this which is awesome. I saved a ton for my condo.

So let’s get on to 2020 eh?

2020 Bookish Goals:

  1. Read 70 books. I feel like this is a non-stressful number. Imma keep it.
  2. Review 50 books. Still a good goal.
  3. Participate in more readathons. Melinda has this goal too and I love it. I saw this one called Finish the Series 2020 and I’m in to that. Plus also Magical Readathon, Tome Topple, and preferably at least one other.
  4. DNF more. I realize I struggle with this, but with my job, I no longer have time to read stuff I’m not enjoying.

2020 Personal Goals:

  1. Buy the damn condo. That’s it. That’s the tweet.
  2. Get promoted. So that I can stop having so much work to do.
  3. Get my anxiety under control. Last year was pain, this year is mental health. It’s starting to bleed to my team and I can’t have that.

So there you have it! 2020 here we come!

Until next time, we remain forever drunkenly yours,
