Ten Goals for Lockdown

It's a weird time in the world at the moment, and New Zealand has just gone into a four-week lockdown to try and stop the spread of covid-19. My university has also shut down for that period of time and I'm not very good at having nothing to do sooo I decided to set some goals for the next four weeks.

1. Only have ONE book that I'm 'currently reading'

A lot of reading is already on the cards, but more specifically I want to reduce the number of books I have marked as 'currently reading' on Goodreads. At the moment it's at 6. Some of them I haven't picked up in over a year, but they're all books I actually want to get through so this is the time to do it.

2. Be able to do a singular push-up by the end of these four weeks

I'm weak. I have no upper body strength. So this has been a goal for a looong time.

3. Get outside every. single. day.

We're lucky enough to be able to go for walks in our local area and we have a garden at our flat so getting outside every day is totally doable and will most likely make me feel a million times better.

4. Write an essay for my marketing class

It's gotta be done so I might as well get it done while I have some time off to really focus on it.

5. Start a bookstagram!

Okay, so I have a bookstagram account, but I've never actually posted anything on it. It's scaaary and everybody takes such nice photos (does anybody have any tips and tricks to get started).

6. Finally get up to date with Brooklyn 99

I'm halfway there. Noice.

7. Actually catch up on laundry

Why is this so hard? I've been behind since the start of the year. And no, I don't know how this happens.

8. Do all that uni stuff from last term that I got behind on

Oh gosh. I'm a tad behind. Not toooo bad. But there's still a decent chunk of stuff that I need to catch up on. I probably won't think about that until next week though.

9. Read something outside my comfort zone

I generally read a lot of YA fiction and the occaisional adult mystery or romance... I like the idea of mixing it up, so I might use this time to read a non-fiction book that I normally wouldn't or maybe a collection of poems or a book written in prose. Does anybody have any recs?

10. Take some time to chill out

Very important! This is probably one of the few times in my life where I'm going to be forced to stay at home for four weeks so I might as well use the time to catch up on some sleep and relax.

How's everything where you are? Are you working/studying from home at the moment? Do you have any goals for this period of time?
