Twenty Sixteen // Blogging-Reading Resolutions

Happy New Year to all of you lovely people (I know I'm 2 weeks late but shush better late than never)

To be very honest, I only compiled my list of blogging-reading resolutions after 2 weeks of the new year because I always like to plan my goals after having a little taste of what the new year will be like. I'm known to be overly ambitious about EVERYTHING URGH so I realized (like after 10 years) that it's loads more fullproof to do it this way.

Ever met an overly ambitious procrastinator? WE GET LITERALLY NOTHING DONE. IT'S BORDERLINE RIDICULOUS.

So here we go!

1, Read a book every 2 weeks for 6 months

OKAY BEFORE YOU JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS and accuse me for being unspeakably lame for believing that such a thing is actually a goal...
Basically here in Malaysia, the final year of your schooling life marks your SPM (Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia) examination year which is essentially your final major exam before school is over. Your results for said exam will determine your college/university/entire life from here on out. 
So if I can manage this goal on top of 10 subjects, extra classes, and school activites, KUDOS TO ME. (I deserve all the cake in the world. You may give me your share too.)

2. Read more manga!

Surprised? I'm actually a mini otaku!
I have been for several years now and I really really enjoy reading manga and watching animes BUT!
I never make enough time for them!
This year however, that will change! (I hope) I plan to read mangas like Black Butler, Fruits Basket, (I'm currently reading both of them right now!) Dead Man Wonderland and Fullmetal Alchemist.

3. Post once a week

This is probably the scariest resolution of them all because of how busy I will be this year but once a week shouldn't be too daunting (that's what she said) SO I WILL DO MY BEST!
If you're interested, I plan to post every Sunday *grins*

4. Take better bookish pictures. 

I am convinced that a tadpole has better photography skills than I do. My photos are that bad. So this year I WILL take better photos of the books I read for an all round better blogging experience.


I started blogging in November of last year so granted, I haven't had a lot of time to meet a ton of people here on the blogosphere. But this year I have an entire year so I plan to talk to loads more people and fangirl with literally everyone because that's all we do right?

SO those are all my blogging-reading resolutions for 2016. Do you have any? Do you plan your resolutions waaaaay in advance or are you like me? Also, can we be friends? (I'm nice.. I promise.) 

Plus the new chapter of The Chronicles at Hogwarts is out ahhhh you can should read it here.
Also, tell Vineeth how awesome she is because excuse me that chapter was AMAZING.


  1. Hello, Ash.

    I see you're having some amazing resolutions, and being a fellow procrastinator, I'd like to say that you're up for a real tough time ahead, especially with #3. Also, your chapter was great. I guess I should switch to the next tab and paste this there, but proscrastination wins.

    By the way, I'm Vineeth, the only guy in the Story Mash-Up project, and the same guy who wrote the chapter you seem to have loved. Also, you did make me laugh everytime you used the pronoun 'she' in the post and the comments on your chapter to refer to me, so thanks for that, I guess. :)

    P.S: You have a new reader, and yes, we can be friends. Cheers.

    Okay, I just noticed the struck 'can'. Wow.

    1. Hey there Vineeth! I have a horrible confession to make. I did indeed think you were a girl for no actual reason at all and I apologize profusely for that. I realized this 2 days ago when I saw your WordPress icon was a guy and I can't put into words who unbelievably mortifed I was for jumping to conclusions.
      I'm so so sorry and I'm so glad you found it funny. Thank god for your sense of humour. I'm ridiculous I know but really, you rock for taking it in stride. *bows*
      Yes I'm a huge fan of your chapter :D I can't wait to read more from you! Here's to being friends *grins*

    2. Haha, no, that's fine! I would be mortified if I were you, too. Yeah, thank you for being a fan. Part of the credit for you liking my chapter goes to you, for your wonderfully crafted chapter, especially that ending. That was the perfect launchpad, but I didn't realise it until I was thinking about the story on Saturday night. Late realisation *stupid grin*. This was fun, and I hope we get to work on something like this again.


  2. Ooh good luck with the intense schoolish things!! YOU GOT THIS. (And honestly, I think anyone who majorly balances all the school stuff PLUS blogging/reading deserves like a medal. And like NINE WHOLE CAKES. *gives you some in preparation*)
    Good luck with your goals. ;D
    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!


Shower me with your opinions people!
