Top Ten Tuesday: Resolutions! I guess.

the broke and the bookish

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

Resolutions are not my favorite thing, and I failed fantastically at 2014’s. But, the topic this week is Top Ten Goals/Resolutions For 2015, and I DO have some goals in mind, so why the hell not.

  1. Read 50% non-white authors.
  2. Buy more books / spend more dollars on non-white authors.
  3. Get back to 155 lbs.
  4. Pay off a big chunk of my NY&Co card (not that it’s astronomically high, but I think I’m going to aim to close it this year).
  5. Save for a house.

And I’m leaving it at that. All of my goals are pretty focused this year… with the honeyman going away for five months for basic, I’ll have some surplus time to work out, read, and save a little extra so that hopefully this time next year we’ll be getting ready to house shop. I could work in some small, specific stuff (run another 5k, make a quiche, etc…) but that will probably come up throughout the year anyways.


Any goals or things you’re going to work on in 2015?




  1. Great goals – I love resolutions because they give me something to aim for. Even if I don’t always manage to succeed! I’m ashamed to admit that I never really think about anything other than gender when I pick books so I think I may have to join you with your goal to read more non-white authors. Happy New Year, good luck and let’s do this! 😀


    1. I really do love TTT, but I’ve been really sporadic in taking part this year. Partly because I’ve been busy, but also because there tends to be a lot of repeat categories if you’ve been taking part in it for a couple years, and I don’t feel like mentioning the same books or characters. I’d like to find a fun new weekly meme…


  2. I like your resolutions. I should probably work on making some of those.

    Also yay for saving to (eventually) buy a house. House buying is the wooooooooorst but actually owning a place is pretty sweet.


  3. I’m a very goal oriented person as it is, so setting yearly resolutions is actually hard for me (I’m the type that starts out the day with a to-do list).

    But…I also need to lose ten pounds, get on a blogging schedule (for my own peace of mind more than anything), etc., etc.


    1. I miss being on a blogging schedule! I used to have reviews, memes, events and stuff all kind of mapped out on a wall calendar.

      Good luck on your goals this year, whether they be resolutions for a year or just daily 🙂


    1. I’m usually good with short term goals too, which is why I kept this list kind of short… I have reading goals every year b/c I’ve done that for ages, and the other stuff is just things I need to work on.


  4. Awesome goals! And totally attainable!

    My biggest goals are reviewing more books on my blog (I’m a slacker lately), maintaining my weight, and starting to go to the gym.

    Happy New Year, Sarah!!


    1. Yay, those are awesome goals! I need to go to the gym more often – I’m always happy when I go to the gym, but I have the damnedest time getting myself out of the house to go, lol. I used to scroll through Pinterest and look at all those health-fitness-workout memes and pics to motivate myself, I should start doing that again…

    1. Those are both great goals! I’d like to get better at running this year… but I’m taking more of a “we’ll see what happens” approach. I imagine that during those months that the honeyman is gone that I’ll go to the gym and run a lot more, but who knows.
