New Years Resolutions 2018

Good afternoon! It is the second day of the New Year and I have spend some time setting some goals and some resolutions for myself. I tried to reflect on what I achieved the past year and set reasonable targets so I will actually be able to accomplish them. I have made a Video on my YouTube Channel as well where I talk about all of these 18 points in detail. So if you want to know more about them go head over to youtube where I explain them further.

So here are the things I will try to accomplish in 2018:

  1. read 40 books2
  2. visit 3 new countries
  3. do a writing holiday without the phone for a week
  4. finish the current book project & send it out to publishers
  5. make 150 videos on both YouTube channels
  6. get a grip at University/get good grades and be the best I can be
  7. (finally) get my drivers licence
  8. get 4 of the tattoos I have planned the past 2 years
  9. get in better shape physically and mentally
  10. run a half marathon
  11. finish my first Olympic Distance
  12. save money for traveling
  13. make more music
  14. be more efficient and reliable
  15. live more sustainable
  16. no social media/phone in bed
  17. be myself
  18. spend more time with my family

So those are my goals. Not too ambitious (except one or two maybe) and focused a lot on my sports and career. But I think I have done a good job this year evaluating where I am right now and where I want to go this year.

Let me know what you think about these resolutions and what your own plans and goals for 2018 are. Don’t forget to be good, do good and receive good.

Cheers, SaMy

Screaming ideas

On days like today – when Ideas keep buzzing into your head like a class of screaming children – you feel as though 24 hours are not enough. I can’t sleep cos every time I try to think of something to dream me to sleep, my thoughts drift off to some idea for a youtube video or a new chapter I want to write, a plot twist or lyrics to a song I need to write RIGHT NOW!

But sleep is overrated is it?

I mean there are so many ways to be creative. First and foremost this blog that -right now- is a perfect way to “practice” writing on a daily basis. But considering I want to put myself out there not for the sake of being a public figure/influencer or whatever you want to call it but rather for sharing my creativity with others and inspiring them to follow their own path of creativity, writing a blog and doing nothing else Social Media wise would be a waste of time – probably.

But balancing Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and a Blog with daily life takes some time getting used to – even more so when you are writing books apart from that. But I am getting used to it. Since I dropped almost all of my English Classes starting this week (cos I don’t get credits for my degree and it is boring as hell) I am trying to arrange a regular Social Media Schedule – which I meant to be doing for quite a while now – to maintain a posting schedule and get used to regular uploads. Maybe it will help me balance the workload I put on myself all the time and transport me to a point where I am a reliable and most of all more organised person in hindsight of Social Media Presence.

I would love to follow every single Idea that comes to my mind but for now I need to learn how to hold back some until I build a bit of a Profile and focus on the things I want to achieve right now. Which is posting on this Blog on a regular basis.

Dividing my Big Goal into small steps helped me on so many levels and for the first time I’m starting to feel that I might someday get on top of it.


But now I need to get off this train and see my lovely Pekka Button and my Auntie <3. Family and Friends ALWAYS take priority – sorry guys.
