Hey cutie! How are you? I spent a lot of time over the past couple of weeks thinking about my goals for 2023; I thought about the usual suspects (learn Chinese again, do more design projects etc) but the past year has taught me just how important my mental health is. I didn’t want to overwhelm myself again because I’m tired of feeling disappointed in myself haha
These were last year’s goals – I’ll strike through the ones I’ve done:
Stop taking things personally
Exercise 5 mins a day on the bike
Keep track of my wins
Read before bed – does reading webtoons count…? Keep on doing hime gyaru
Yeaaaah… I didn’t do very well haha … But here are my goals for the year ahead!
Spend more time offline
Honestly… I need to create a healthier relationship with my phone and social media. I didn’t realise just how much I relied on it as a source of happiness so I need to break away from that.
More books, less webtoons
The amount of money I’ve spent on webtoons this year is *shudders* scary af. But I absolutely love reading so I’m going to read more books instead! I’ve actually already started working on this goal and I’m currently reading through the Court of Thorns and Roses series and I LOVE it!
Go on more adventures
I mentioned this in my previous point but I want to go on more adventures e.g. seeing live shows, go to the theatre, and hopefully go on holiday abroad. I want to do more experiences (if that makes sense?).
Do more stuff around the house
What I mean by that is to do some more DIY. There are little bits I want to do like painting doors, but I would also like to renovate one of the rooms as it’s very, very outdated.
Live the hime(kaji) life
Hime gyaru makes me feel so happy and pretty, so I definitely want to do it more often. Himekaji throughout the week, and hime gal (hopefully) on weekends! I’d say that himekaji is quite easy for me to do as I definitely have the wardrobe for it, but I wanna push myself further and actually do cute outfits every (other) day.
Learn Chinese via Duolingo
This time – for real. I need to do it. My goal is to stick with (at least) a 100 day streak! I did it once so I can do it again.
And that’s it!
What are your goals for 2023?
Until next time

Fingers crossed you’ll make all of them come true ☆ This case with learning a language while it’s so free online but we cannot bring ourselves to be consistent enough ;-; aaaah!!!

Happy New Year, Lizzie!
Love your 2023 goals, and I’m sure you’ll do great! Spending more time offline and reading more books will go hand in hand – those were some of my goals last year and worked amazingly for me and for my mental health! x
