My goals for 2020 are simple.
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.

Nature and museums. Awesome goals. I feel like it’s been way to long since I set foot in a museum.
Thanks a lot. Yeah, visiting museums is so relaxing.
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.
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!
My library has a similar program! I hope you do take advantage of those free passes. It’s such a neat idea.
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. 🙂
I’m adding “blog about museum visits” to my editorial calendar. You’ve convinced me. 🙂
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.
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.
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!
Thanks a lot. I appreciate your encouragement. Good luck to your kid as they take Spanish II.
I like your idea about getting out in nature more. Glad you want to work on your Spanish. Here’s mine: https://pmprescott.blogspot.com/2020/01/wednesday-challenge.html
Thanks, Patrick! I just left a comment on your post. Your writing projects sound super cool.
Now those are cool goals! I hope you achieve them all, Lydia. Especially visiting more museums. Luuurve museums. So much to learn!
Thanks a lot. 🙂 I hope you’ll get to visit some museums this year, too, if you’d like.
Fantastic set of goals. Thanks for sharing
You’re welcome. Thank you for stopping by!
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!
Thanks a lot!
Those are some brilliant goals to have. I definitely need to visit a couple more museums and I am terrible at replying to emails. I always intend to, but then forget about it haha.
Thank you very much. I will happily share those goals with you. 🙂
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.
Aww, thanks! And, yes, it’s quite easy to fall into a rut. I hope you try some delightful new things this year.
Great goals. I love nothing better than an art museum or gallery!
Thank you. Yes, they’re the best.
Trying new things is always a good goal. I like the idea of visiting museums too.
Thanks. I’m glad you agree there.
