10 Goals for 2016

I don’t normally set myself new years resolutions, but this year I decided to set myself 10.

If you’re interested in hearing about the goals in more detail, have a watch of the video below, but here is a list of my 10 Goals for 2016

1.  Read as many books as possible. – I haven’t set an exact number of books to read because I’m unsure of how many I’m capable of reading in a year. I’ll read as many as I can, then next year I can set myself a number to beat.


2. Get fitter. – At the end of 2015, I was attempting 5k runs, doing more youtube HIIT workouts and trying to do squats/press-ups everyday so I want to get better at those to tone up my body.

3. Go a walk once a week. – In 2015, I got so into hill walking and climbed a couple of munros, but this year I want to not only climb more, but attempt 1 walk a week. It doesn’t have to be a big hike every week, but even a 5k or a trail will suffice.

4. Climb more. – I’ve been enjoying bouldering a lot recently, but because climbing every single week isn’t feasible all the time, I want to make sure I climb once every 2 weeks, at least.

5. Travel more. – Last year, I visited Italy which was great fun, but this year I’m even more excited because in April, I’m going to Berlin and South Africa! I also visited Skye, Inverness and climbed a few hills in Glencoe in 2015, but I want to travel around Scotland even more this year, and another country if possible.

6. Vlog more. – As I said in my previous blog post, I’ve started a youtube series called Creep Week, which involves vlogging during an interesting week and putting it altogether in one video. Vlogs are probably my favourite videos to film, so I’m aiming to do more of those this year.

7. Put more effort into youtube. – I want to be proud of every video I upload, so I’m aiming to really step up my game and give youtube my all.

8. Blog more. – I started this blog in 2015, but I hardly posted anything! So over the next 11 months, I’m going to write a post relating to every youtube video I upload, which will be once or twice a week. However, I’m hoping to get into the swing of writing other posts that aren’t related to youtube.

9. Write in my diary more often. – I have a LiveJournal that I write in once a week or every 2 weeks but I’m struggling to remember what I did over the weeks when I’m updating it! The goal is to write in it either every day or every second day.

10. Work on my anxiety. – This is a biggie! I’d encourage you to watch my video to understand what I want to achieve.

Let me know what your goals for 2016 are!

    Hi Erin,

    I found you a while ago on youtube – I am looking forward very much to reading your blog in 2016 and watching your youtube vlogs – I especially enjoy your hillwalks, but also your very funny vlogs with Amy and your other friends! Btw, thank you so much for cheering me up after long boring days in the office! I love the paranormal stories and investigations too, please keep them coming! 🙂
    Your videos have inspired me to go on “hill”-walks more often here in where I live, although the landscape is a bit different.%-)
    Oh, one of my new year’s resolution is to go see Edinburgh finally sometime this year (we’ll make sure to go on that specific ghost tour that you vlogged about)!

    Greetings and have a good start into 2016,

    Hello again, I tried to comment when you posted this one but, my computer was giving me grief. haha

    These are all great goals Erin, you have totally inspired me to try working on vlogging. My only problem is, I’m my own worst critic and I keep throwing out the ones I’ve done. Grrr! So, one of my goals is to actually start publishing them. 🙂

    Good luck!

    Asking questions are in fact pleasant thing if you are not understanding something completely, except this article offers nice understanding yet.
