2020 Vision Board Accomplishments

As we end one of the most seemingly horrific years (horrible starts to a decade), I wanted to reflect on some things I accomplished that were on my vision board for the year. Since the world was pretty much shut down, I was unable to do most of the things on my vision board. Still, I am proud of what I accomplished.

Twenty twenty is that crappy Christmas gift that fills you with disappointment and makes it seem like the worse Christmas ever, but turns out, you actually needed it. Believe it or not, we needed twenty twenty; it provided different things for different people.

The Romantic Individualist

Remember when I took a bunch of online quizzes?

Well, one of the tests I took was the enneagram personality test, where I was a 98% match for type 4, sometimes called The Individualist and sometimes called The Romantic.

Since finding out my enneagram type, I have been doing small deep dives into figuring out everything I can about my personality type. I wanted to share all my research, as well as resources so you can read about your enneagram type if you’re also interested in things like this.

Gosh, I hope not.

On June 17, 2020, in the midst of a pandemic and civil rights movement, I turned twenty-one and decided to document the day (to the best of my ability).

I am not an expert on confrontations, but after experiencing being the confronter and the confrontee, I learned a few things that will make having those difficult conversations a little easier.

Confrontations are never fun; there is a way to come out of them without anyone getting hurt or angry, and there could even be some self growth as a result.

I Took a Bunch of Online Quizzes

I spent a Saturday night taking a bunch of online quizzes to see who they (I guess “they” being the Internet) say I am. Some of them are pretty spot on, and some of them were interesting.

If you’re bored and need something to do, I highly recommend doing this. It’s fun to see the results, especially if they weren’t what you were expecting, and it’s a great way to pass time.

How to Create More Space on Your Smartphone

Every month, I set aside about two to three hours of my day to go through my phone (mainly my photos) and delete everything that is unneeded/unwanted and saves space.

This month was a special month for my phone cleansing because I did more than clean out my camera roll and delete my Internet history/data (which saves a lot of space). Before cleansing my phone, I used about 50 gigabytes of data. After cleansing my phone, I went down to 21.5 gigabytes of data being used.

Here are the four things I do to save/create space on my smartphone.

Retail vs. Fast Food

Since my senior year of high school, I’ve worked different odd jobs to keep a little money in my constantly fluctuating bank account. From a crew member for a concessions stand at a baseball park to packaging online orders at a clothing retailer, I have a bit of experience.

Whether you’re a teen trying to get a little bit of spending money, a retired elderly person who doesn’t want to sit at home, or a middle-aged adult who has no other option, I have accumulated a few questions to ask yourself when deciding if you want to work retail or fast food.

Sunday afternoon is my time for self-care. I do an in-depth skincare routine, watch a movie with myself (normally a rom-com), and spend an hour planning the week ahead.

I wanted to share my four-step system for effectively planning out each day of the week.
