Count Down To Thirty Begins: 2017 Goals

November is upon us. And I am now looking forward to planning what I want to accomplish in 2017, before my 30th birthday. I have a fairly long list of things I’d like to do, places I want to go, and accomplishments to strive towards. And it has taken some thought and time to reflect and determine the main goals I want to accomplish next year.

I have narrowed it down to three main goals to accomplish before October 2017.

Learn to Drive. This is something I dream about being able to do. I mean that I actually sleep and dream that I can drive. I have had variations of these dreams over the years and now I am ready.


Dream car for now. I love blue and this seems like it could manage the roads in St. Mary.

I have astigmatism, my vision is distorted. I wear glasses and the glasses I have had since 2015, have offered me sharper, clearer vision than I have ever had before. So come January 2017, I will do an eye check to determine if I can have this clear vision with contact lenses. And I will start professional driving lessons. This is my 2017 first quarter goal. I think this is doable.

Be A Published Author. I am writing again. Have you read Reunion? We are in NaNoWriMo and I am attempting to complete my story, The Sixth Culling.  Writing all of this month and getting to 50,000 words is just the start. I am free writing, I know the story will be filled with all sorts of errors, maybe have major plot holes and other challenges but I am committed to writing this long form fiction and to keep going, to keep writing. So after November, I will edit, rewrite and share this story. And after this project is wrapped I will keep on writing  and before October 16, 2017, I want to have published a book.

Be A Homeowner. In 2017, my big big goal is to be a homeowner.


Townhouse I used to really, really like from a few years ago.

A few months ago I stopped obsessing over moving from my current rental flat. For me it is far more important to save and work towards home ownership than to move to another rental apartment.

How about you guys? Anyone else considering their 2017 plans as yet?
