Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge: My Goals for 2020

Hosted by Long and Short Reviews.

Click here to read everyone else’s replies to this week’s question and here to see the full list of topics for the year.

My goals for 2020 are simple.

Woman sitting on a bench in an art museum looking at large paintings. Visit More Museums. It’s been too long since I stepped foot into a museum. That needs to change.

Try New Things. It could be as simple as visiting a new restaurant or as complicated as having a full-blown conversation in Spanish. I want to stretch my comfort zone this year.

Study Spanish Again. Speaking of foreign languages, I stopped studying Spanish last year. I want to pick it up again and hopefully get to a point where I can have conversations in that language. Learning a new language is hard,  and I deeply admire everyone who becomes fluent in a new language.

Spend More Time in Nature. While I love living in a big city, there’s something incredibly relaxing about spending time in nature. I want to do that more often.

Reply to Emails Faster.  I wasn’t always good at that in 2019. Let’s see if I can do better this year.

  1. These are really good goals. My educational background is in ancient history and archaeology so museums are my jam. I keep saying I’m going to go to grad school again to get a degree in museum studies, but so far that hasn’t materialized. In the meantime, though, I’ll start going to more museums just as a visitor. Keep me updated on the ones you visit!

    As for Spanish- hard same. I’m Mexican American, but live in the UK. I’m the only one in my family who learned Spanish as a second language so it was never super strong to begin with, but since moving to the UK I rarely get to speak it so each year I lose more of it.

    How are you planning to study it? I had Duolingo but was thinking of taking the plunge with Rosetta Stone.

    • Aww, thanks! I may just have to blog about the museums I visit this year. Good idea.

      I have used Duolingo to study Spanish in the past. Rosetta Stone might be a good one to try next.

  2. Our local library has free passes to museums and other attractions in the area (up to and including Boston). I need to make use of those more! Ah… languages. I took three years of French in high school a hundred years ago, but that was remarkably impractical. Spanish would have been better. Good luck learning!

  3. Great list! ‘Try new things’ made my list for 2020 too–with an emphasis on making those things fun. If you did find time to blog about your museum visits, I’d personally love it. 🙂

  4. Thanks for coming by earlier. I love your idea about museums.. unfortunately, I live in south Georgia and there aren’t many. I need to find out where ones within driving distance are. I also like your idea of studying Spanish. I used to be pretty good… we are streaming The Great Courses series… they have a couple on Spanish and one on learning to play the piano. I want to try to find the time to do those this year.

    re: charging the FitBit. I have the versa 2 and it has an insane battery life (4+ days!). When it gets low (or I’m taking a shower, if I think about it) I just pop it on the charger. It doesn’t take long to charge at all.

    • You’re welcome.

      I hope there are some fun road trips in your future once you figure out which museums are close enough to home for a day trip.

      The Great Courses series sounds awesome!

      And, wow, that’s a fantastic charging time.

  5. I admire your desire to learn and speak spanish fluently. I took 7 years of spanish over middle school, high school and college. I still can’t speak it that well. Now I’m trying to help the tot pass Spanish II. Oy…
    Good for you on the goals. I know you can do them all!

  6. Try new things is my favourite goal ever! There are so many things we never even consider until a goal like this comes around. Good luck adding lots of awesome new experiences to your year!

  7. I love your idea of trying new things. I definitely need to do the same! I feel like it’s easy to fall into a rut when it comes to activities, food, life in general, and it stifles creativity and personal growth. I need to be brave and step out of my comfort zone, too.
