Small Goals || December 2017


TV Shows/Movies:

Thor: A Dark World: As much as I enjoyed this movie, the entire plot was based off a plethora of coincidences and unlikely events all happening at the exact moment that they needed to, which annoyef me a little. I adored Loki's character just as much as I did in the other movies I have seen him in; I love his cheekiness, and his unpredictability. The ending of this movie completely blew me away, and I was quite interested in how Ragnorok was going to pick up afterwards.

Thor: Ragnorok: Ahhh... this is still a relatively new movie, so I don't want to spoil anything for those who haven't seen it, but this was by far the worst Thor movie yet. It was probably my least favourite Marvel movie yet as well. There were far too many jokes. Every five seconds something incredibly cringe-y happened, it was like a 15-year-old dude wrote 90% of the dialogue. 

I understand that there needs to be some comedic scenes to break all the tension, but this was far too much. It was like they were trying to outdo Deadpool, but they did it badly. That being said, I loved the fighting and action scenes. They definitely made the entire movie worth it. I especially loved Thor's fighting scenes towards the end of the movie; they were awesome - and, as always, Loki is still my favourite. But, yeah, I won't be rushing to buy the DVD when it comes out.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine (season four): This show is one of my favourite things in the world - not just one of my favourite shows, but one of my favourite things, out of everything there is in the world. The last season's cliffhanger tore me to pieces and I am so glad that I finally got to see how it worked out - only for this season's cliffhanger to rip my heart into a million pieces all over again! I enjoyed this season just as much as the rest of them, and I can't wait to see more.


Little updates:

♡ I bought myself Taylor Swift's new album the day it came out and while some songs took a while for me to warm up to, I can honestly say that I love this album. With the exception of New Year's Day which I just cannot get into, it's such a fantastic assortment of songs. I Did Something Bad, Don't Blame Me, Getaway Car, End Game and This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things are constantly on repeat in the car (sorry, Daniel!).

♡ The results for the plebiscite to see whether us Australians wanted marriage equality to be legalised were released and I was actually blown away by the answer: the majority of Australia believes that it should be legal, how great is that?! I had never been more proud to live in this country than that day. I've heard that they're trying to have it legalised before Christmas, and as always, the pessimist realist inside me doesn't want to get my hopes up just yet.


1. Complete the majority of my December content.
Yes! I have been working super hard on my December blog posts. Just last Saturday I completed seven posts in the one day! The only unfinished posts left are ones that I still need to make or do something for, but will be easy to complete once I have everything that I need.

2. Deep clean the kitchen.
YES. Daniel and I got the entire house spotless for our inspection (which took less than 5 minutes) and it's made me so much happier to work and relax in such a clean and tidy house. I've even been doing the dishes as I use them and it honestly makes me feel so good about myself! Is this what being an adult is like?!

3. Start organising our holiday.
I'm going to be cheeky and let myself cross this one off the list even though all I did was buy and suitcases pick out the bathing suit I want. I haven't actually bought it yet, but I know where it is! 😅 😂

4. Clean and put away snow boots.
Nope. I even tried to palm this take off to Daniel, but I forgot to remind him about it so it never got done. Oops!

5. Organise Daniel's side of the office.
And no, yet again. I'm not going to bother continuing this goal next month once again as it has to be done in order to fit all of Daniel's presents in the office, but I am kind of disappointed in myself for not doing it sooner.


3/5 really seems to be the average, huh? I've said before that 3 feels like a good number to me; it's more than half, and that's a win in my eyes. Maybe 2018 will be the year that I start consistently achieving five out of five goals! We can only hope.

1. Donate belongings to charity store.
I've been filling bags with things to donate to charity stores all month, and I am really proud of how much I am getting rid of. I even de-cluttered my make-up collection (don't worry, I'm not donating any used items)! I want to have at least two full bags by the end of the month.

2. Find homes for all newly acquired items.
Since I picked out all my presents from Daniel, I already have a rough idea of where they're going to go, but I really want to make sure I put away everything that I acquire over this month so that the house doesn't feel messy or crowded.

3. Get remaining items for our holiday.
Bathers are the most important thing that we need to buy, but we'll probably also look around for beach towels and maybe some goggles. I also want to pick up some bath bombs so I can take advantage of that hotel bath every single night we're there like I did at the snow! I can't have baths at home because our bathroom has two permanently open windows which means it's always FREEZING in there.

4. Make more time for reading at home.
Due to mine and Daniel's very opposite schedules, I often get to work a few hours early, or have to wait around a few hours afterwards, which I use to get some reading done since I'm not at home being distracted by my computer, but I'd like to read a lot more books next year considering I've only read 29 so far this year (which is just awful compared to last year's 64), meaning I need to increase my reading time.

5. Work on January's blog content.

These last few months coming up with blog content has been a dream. There's been so much going on - my birthday, Halloween, Christmas, end of the year - and I've had so many ideas that I have had to scrap multiple posts just so I wouldn't overwork myself. I even added a new post per week for all of December and could have easily kept going, plus I've got February's blog posts planned as well, but I've only got a few ideas for January and need to work on them now so I'm not stressed out later on.


What are some of your goals for this month?

Until next time,
