HAPPY 2018 EVERYONE! There were a few moments back in 2017 I wondered will we ever survive to the 2018 but here we are. Chris Cornell & Chester Bennington dying, that ridiculous world will end soon boom in September, North-Korea losing its shit and well, Trump. Though, I'm not here to chat about any that I've mentioned before. I'm here to chat about MY resolutions for 2018.

It's insane how picky I am. And when I'm not able to eat meat at all (not a vegan by own choice), so my options for food are limited. Also, I think I've got some kind of post-traumatic eating disorder after being forced to eat different things in 1st and 2nd grade. That's a storytime for another time. So my goal this year is to start to eat more healthily and at least taste three new things. I mean, the recipes I post here are 99% ones that I personally, have never tasted.
Last year, I found one type of chicken I was able to eat very little without getting nauseous or throw it up immediately and I think that's an amazing news.

I want to start a hobby. I know this sounds like a huge cliché because it's the 1st of January but I do, want to start some kind of exercising hobby or so. Thanks to the rheumatoid I'm not able to start anything super heavy, but I thought spinning or yoga would be so much fun to do once a week. I don't want to go to the gym, even though there is a 24/7 one right across the street but I don't have a clue how the stuff works there and I'm generally not a gym person at all. So no gym for me.
After the breast reduction surgery, I feel like all the doors are open for me.

Beginning of 2017 we didn't recycle at all. But when I wasn't able to breastfeed D we had a lot of milk cartons around that needed to be recycled. So we started putting them in a different bag instead of the bag we used to put everything else. Also, we started recycling bio, paper, glass and metal. I'm super proud of us, but the end of the last year we became lazy. When bio bag leaks, it's the most disgusting thing on Earth but it still isn't an excuse to stop recycling. So I want to keep this recycling thing going.

You read right. I'm struggling with money at the moment. Of course, like most of the people, I've got savings but I'm not going to use them unless I've tried everything possible on Earth. I don't feel like asking my husband to buy me things or buy things for D because he's my husband. Not talking carry around wallet without his own opinions. Even though he covers the food and living, stuff for D at the moment there's no one who covers things for me but myself. And at the moment all my money is going to our rent and I'm left with 7€/month own money to use. We're living tough times, at least in my head.
I'm not going to take any stress about this. I'm going to go with the flow and follow my intuition. I've been studying a lot about monetizing since September 2017 so I'm pretty comfortable, I've got a plan and I'll see if that will work. If it won't, I'll come up with another plan. At least I've got something to do before August when returning to work.

THIS, I've been on a gap year x4 since I graduated upper secondary school. I've been working, started a family and applying to the school. I want to study digital marketing and culture production and I've applied three times already. I'm at the point where even my grandparents ask me have I thought about studying something else and I'm asking that why would I study something I'm not interested in doing for a living.
In a couple of months, it will start and I've already created studying schedule for myself. I'm going to need J more than ever in this, as I really need to get into the school. I'm more determined than ever.

This is a funny goal, as I'm broke. All my clothes are three sizes way too big for me, everything is tents from the time I wanted to hide myself and my breasts. I won't get over the past if I don't get rid of it permanently. That's why I started my little project in September 2017 and so far it has gone okay.

What are your goals for 2018?



  1. Excellent goals, Jasmin! I blogged my goals today, they're basically improving the blog and it's social, and doing well in other areas of life as well. Good luck with monetizing the blog - it's not the easiest job but it would sure be something you enjoy. :) Also, I wish you luck and consistency with your eating and exercise goals. Those will probably take some time but they can offer you some awesome results.

    1. Thanks! The eating thing is on top of my list :D

  6. You have set such wonderful goals. You come across as a very perseverant person and I am sure you will achieve each one of these this year!

  7. I love that you want to recycle more, I think we should all try to do that. Maybe you can combine that (more or less) with renovating your wardrobe. It's amazing what you can find at thrift shops!
    Good luck with all of your goals and all the best for 2018!

  13. These are great goals Jasmin! If you are looking to get into Yoga at home, I would recommend Yoga With Adrienne on YouTube. She is such a great yoga teacher and she has just started the 30 Days of Yoga for January so perfect time to start. All the best with your resolutions and have a fantastic 2018! xx

  14. These are such great goals and I’m with you on the trying out new meals one, I’m a picky eater and won’t try new food unless I desperately need to so I want to do that more often and hopefully everything works out positivity for you and your studies and finances! Ayse x

  15. These are amazing goals Jasmin! You got this! I really hope the monetizing your blog helps you! Please do an update on that please! I would love to read about it! Wish you the best with your goals for 2018! It's a promising year!

  16. Good luck with monetising your blog; I started doing that towards the end of 2017, so it's too early to see how its going - hopefully it pays off! My goal is to make more of an effort with blog photography and Instagram.

  19. I'm working on the monetization thing too. I've operated blogs before, but this is my first attempt at earning any money from one. I'm not going to stress too much over it, but it'd be nice to have a little extra income from it if I can get there.

  20. In terms of meals I always find myself looking at and recently looking through Run Fast Eat Slow book if you needed any suggestions on places to look for new meals to try :)

    In terms of exercising, I’ve been following Lucy Wyndham-Read! Her videos are formatted in that on the left side there’s a beginner version of a move and then on the right there’s an intermediate version - she does a challenge every other month where she posts an exercise video everyday for a month - definitely recommend checking her out!


  21. I made fitness one of my biggest goals in 2017 and I did it all from home, so I have no doubt that you can crush it this year! My blog is going to turn 4 this year and one of my biggest goals is to learn the HTML/CSS that goes behind it so that I can learn how to code my own WordPress themes. We'll see how it goes!

  22. Really hope you achieve the school one! Good Luck in 2018 girl your goals sound really productive x

  23. Wow, great goals but I need a post in more detail on point 1, honestly that was all I could think about as I was reading the others. Good luck with school! I hope you get to go somewhere incredible x


  24. My personal goals are to sleep more, get up earlier and to spend more time with my puppy and cook at home during the week. I really think I can do it.

  25. Yes to New meals....i reall want to explore new cuisine this year

  26. Good luck with your goals, I want to try a lot more new foods this year! :)

    Sophie -

  27. I hope you reach all your goals! There's so many amazing vegan recipes on Pinterest and Youtube so I hope you find at least 3 you like. Also, The Little Blog Of Vegan has some incredible vegan recipes!
    I want to exercise more as well, I started going to the gym in December but I had so much going on that I didn't really have a proper schedule. Now I'm starting pilates as well and hopefully I'll have the time to hit the gym at least once a week :)x
