Year 4 of uni goals ♡

studying flatlay
So my final year of uni is gonna start in a week or so, (I study Japanese at Leeds) and I'm super nervous. I think because it's the last year, it feels like my whole future is riding on it. Which is kind of true, but it's also silly to worry too much about it I guess. I both love and hate the feeling of a new academic year: a whole new leaf, but at the same time a tonne of different stresses. I have a lot of goals for next year, and while I really want to do well in uni, I also want to do well outside uni: spend lots of time with my friends, get out and explore Leeds more, and carry on blogging regularly. So here are my goals for final year:

Be more sociable!!//

Honestly, this is my main goal... I think it final year people often get less sociable, and I think it would be really easy to just stay in my room studying and watching youtube videos all year.... but that's what I want to avoid ^^; It's my last year of university, so I want to enjoy it to the full :)

  • Go to Japanese society every week! 
  • Reunite the Brunch Squad
  • Go to the Leeds ball
  • Go to varsity (the rugby match between Leeds Uni and Beckett... it was surprisingly really fun in first year :)) 
  • Go to at least 3 gigs this year (I've already got Broco booked, score!)


Of course, the real purpose of uni is studying... I've done pretty well so far with my Japanese so I don't want to trip at the finish line now! The contact hours are a lot less, so I think I'll need to be really disciplined, eek.

  • Write an interesting dissertation
  • Aim to get JLPT N1 at the end of the year
  • Get a first overall

Although I only blog as a hobby, I really enjoy it so I wanna keep it going next year. I plan to up the quality of posts, and try my hand at some more video content! 

  • Blog once a week (at least)
  • Try film photography
  • Collaborate with friends more
  • Do a room tour <3 
  • Make at least 2 youtube videos

Misc. //

I also want to keep healthy, and keep doing things that make me happy <3

  • Waste less money
  • Get work experience
  • Learn how to make cocktails (especially my fave espresso martini)
  • Wear red lipstick more often
  • Carry on eating healthily and sleep properly!! (Sleep is so important for mental health, so I reeeally want to keep a proper sleep schedule!)
  • Play guitar more often!!
  • Wear more of my clothes more often- I'm a terrible outfit repeater... 

Wish me luck! Are you guys going back to school/ uni? Do you have any goals for the new academic year? I'd love to know! Thanks for reading <3


  1. We could combine three goals at once and collab to make a youtube video of me teaching you film photography haha ^^

    But these goals sound so good, and so achievable too!! You'll make it <3

    1. I would love that!! <3 we need to collaborate more <3
