5 Fandom Friday: Goals for 2017

Are you NEW to 5 Fandom Friday? Welcome and come join along! 5 Fandom Friday was created by myself and Super Space Chick in October of 2014, as a way to get all of our blogger friends keeping on task each week, building a community with our fellow bloggers and connecting with new and old friends once a week! We choose the topics, you do the writing! Let's get inspired together!
Last year I set out to take chances. I had five of them. Move to Denver {check}, finish my book 100 Cups Of Coffee {2nd draft done, check}, develop my photography business {I'm finally working full time as a photographer, just not for myself, yet}, live alone {kinda} and wait for love {check and found}.

Now this year is all about growing myself even further. I want to expand my skills, grow my passions and do a few things I've left behind in this past year.
1. Get 100 Cups of Coffee out into the world. With the completion of NaNoWriMo in November of last year, I completed my 2nd draft. I added over 20,000 words and I put more of myself and more truth into the book. I cannot wait to have my editor give me her notes and continue on this journey.

2. Grow my career skills. I've had my first full time job for a year now. It was rough and I'm always tired, but I have more motivation to be better everyday. I want to continue to grow my skills and myself. I've never been more motivated in my life! Bring on 2017!
3. Travel more. Ocean Eyes and I are moving in together! By the end of this month I will officially live with him, in his house, with his pets! It's been a transition for both of us, but we are excited! That being said, we will both be able to save money and in turn want to travel more this year! Cancun with my girls, Vegas for his 30th, Wyoming for his Sister's wedding and Japan in 2018! I cannot wait!

4. Save more money. I've not been able to save any money since I moved out on my own. I've held my head above water and only had to dip into my savings in the last weeks of December. I'm excited to save again. To build up a savings and create some stability in my life. I'm thankful for my job for that and living with Ocean Eyes. I cannot wait to see where this journey takes us!
5. Read more. I love reading! I just haven't had time or have been too tired! I'll pick up a book at bed time, read three pages and fall a sleep. I won't get through anything that way! But I plan to try! I have a HUGE to be read stack and I cannot wait to conquer it and then discover the libraries here in Denver!

I cannot wait to here what you have planned for 2017. It feels like a year of accomplishment and motivation.  Let's do it nerds! Don't forget to share with my in the comments below!
