In 2015, I wrote one of my most popular blog posts that I’ve posted here on The Swirl Blog, aside from this post: 100 Things to Know Before College. It was 15 ways to get —and keep— your life together. Now, as a post that originally started as a to-do list to use for myself, I was stunned to see how well this post did.

I don’t know about you, but I always get super pumped about the start of a new year. Of course, there is no switch that says its okay for you to be your best self now, but for me, it gives a kind of a structure to your goal setting. I’m super type A which means that structure and symmetry in goal setting are super important to me. I like to start things at the top of the year, month, week, day, etc.

The new year has started and I have set several goals for the year. I’ve also broken them down into small monthly goals to make them more attainable and to keep me accountable. I’ll be sure to revisit them each month to also keep y’all posted. They’ll be linked here once they go live on Friday. Today, I’m going to add 15 more things to the list. I know I’ll be doing a handful of these things to prep for the new semester as well.

Side note: we would love to have you fill out our yearly feedback survey! This survey will help us create the best content and maintain the best site in 2018. Thanks in advance loves.

Let’s get to it.
