My 2019 Game Goals (and My First-Ever Bullet Journal)

My 2019 Game Goals (and My First-Ever Bullet Journal)

I don’t fully know what inspired it, but I recently decided it would be a super fun idea to try my hand at bullet journaling. I’ve been really obsessed with how they look on Instagram for a while now, and although I’m not very artistic, I thought it’d be a good weekend project.

But what could I draw? I hummed and hawed over a calendar or a weekly schedule or something basic, until I found the perfect idea. I’d draw a game goals list, of course!

It was actually a pretty fun process. I definitely stressed myself out with too many reference lines, and I may or may not have made a few trial-and-error mistakes along the way (did you know you can’t erase pencil below alcohol-based markers? I didn’t), but I’m super happy with how it turned out.

Now, without further ado, here’s my first-ever bullet journal: My 2019 game goals list!

A Letter from Erin: My 2019 Resolution

A Letter from Erin: My 2019 Resolution

I have the hardest time with New Year’s resolutions.

I legit have done the thing where you resolve to go to the gym, and give up by February. Heck, last year, I think I did one YouTube tutorial about my resolution (which was to learn how to dance), decided I was jumping around the living room too much for my squeaky old hardwood floor, and gave up.

So this year, I had a really hard time thinking of what I even wanted to do for my resolution, because I’ve been feeling sick and tired of wanting to do something and then just…not doing it. I almost just didn’t make a resolution.

But then I realized that my issue is probably that I keep trying to resolve to do things I don’t already like—so of course my motivation is a little lacking. That’s why this year, I’m going to dedicate my resolution to something I’m already incredibly passionate about: this blog.

 

What does this mean?

Well, to be honest, I’m still working through a concrete plan, but I have a lot of ideas. Basically, I want to restructure what I’m doing here so it isn’t just a place for me to rant and rave about games and what happens when I get too distracted to write a post.

And I hope when it’s all said and done, this will be the kind of place that you can come to for inspiration.

I hope it will be a place where I can share what I’ve learned through years of blogging and social media and being kind of terrible at video games but loving them anyway. I hope it will be a place where I can help others who want to start out, just like I did almost two years ago. And I hope it will be a place where I can learn from all of you, too!

So stay tuned for all kinds of new posts, content types, adventures, photos, and more! I can’t wait to share it with you.
