Goals for the Future (or just this year)

So first things first.

In order to move on and up in the world you have to set goals. This year I have set myself 5 goals.

  1. Learn French

Seeing as I am now living in France I think it would be a good idea of actually learning the language. To be honest I have been here for 4 months now and think that my french speaking is improving. But I still have a long way to go before being able to make it on my own.

I searched around for the some of the best ways to learn a new language and I found a battle ground of debates.

Already living here for 4 months I found that listening and picking up the words more naturally is the best way for me. However I am going to have to swallow my pride and go to the children sections of a bookshop and buy a few books from that category.

There is also the flashcard way, memorizing words and learning their proper pronunciation. As though you were getting ready for a speaking or writing exam for school. unfortunately this way has not ever worked for me.

And then there are all the applications for phones and websites for learning a new language.

There are so many resources out there, it kinda made me wonder why I never really wanted to learn another language before.

2. Learn the french system

Every country has their own system to living. Important documents and tax returns. If I am to ever stand on my own two feet in this country I am going to have to learn the systems.

For example today I learnt that French banks are very different to English ones. I wanted to transfer money to an account in England but I cannot do it from just any branch of the bank i am with, I have to go to the very one my account is connected with or send an e-mail to someone who looks over my account.

I have a lot to learn and I am ready to get stuck in.

3. Learn Event Managing

As I am currently in the sector of event managing and rather like it, I think it would be a good idea to learn all the ins and outs of it.

4. Pick up art again

I used to love art, still do but I do not seem to even look at my art books. I haven’t picked up a pencil or paint brush in half a year. Before that it was years. I think art would be a good way to relax, a self motivating tool if you will.

We all have that one thing in life that gives us joy and happiness, art was mine. Visiting museums and being able to see masterpieces filled with emotion and skill. To then learning a new way of painting or drawing. Even when I can see that I am improving.

This is what gives me joy, that I can put the way I view the world onto paper.


I guess those are my goals for this year. A lot of learning. Always learning I guess.

Stay true to yourself and do not ever change

see you soon

  1. Excellent goals. I used to draw and paint a lot. It sounds like an excuse, but sometimes life gets in the way. For me, I have to have a certain mindset and then the painting or drawing flows out of me. Lacking that mindset, it would be a chore and no fun at all. Nothing good would come of it. So, life gets in the way because daily routines don’t always allow me that necessary mindset. But, MY goal can be to try to set time aside, or catch things up as needed, so that I CAN set time aside to get into that artsy mindset. Thanks for the reminder!
