Did You Know?
Queen Victoria was known for putting jackets and dresses on her pups, causing clothing for dogs to become so popular that fashion houses for just dog clothes started popping up all over Paris. — Fox
It would be easy to assume that Evangeline came to the Lady Morgana only to pick fights. That wasn't true at all. They also had very good biscuits.

- Get Clarissa married off.
- Get another character to 200 posts.
- Have at least two or more romantic ships.
- Marry off at least one of my bachelors (not counting already engaged ones).
- Have a scandal happen with one of my characters.
- Rapid-fire more often, at least once a week.
Welp, did NOT marry Clarissa off. Did NOT get another character to 200 posts. DID get a couple of new romantic ships. Married off Lionel (and my engaged ones aka Roman and Timothy). Did NOT have enough scandal for my liking. Did NOT get to rapid fire more often.

2024 RP Goals
-- Post at least 5x a week.
-- Start saving characters at the start of each month.
-- Develop more romantic ships because I love them.
-- Develop more IC connections in general.
-- SCANDAL
-- Marry a character off/get them courting/engaged organically.

  • 2023 was actually an A+ year mentally, so keep doing that, please.
  • Be more active, physically. I own a treadmill, I need to use it
  • Actually chip at my TBR pile.
  • Make progress on my 18328932 WIP story ideas. Preferably without adding more ideas, but that might be a superhuman ask.

  • Charming
  • 75 posts for more characters/200 for Harry
  • Romance?? I don't think I've ever actually done a romance plot on Charming. I swear I enjoy them. You wouldn't know it.
  • Ruin someone's life. This can be related to the romance, I'm not picky.

    Haven't done one of these in a long time but I'm feeling up to the spirit!

    CHARMING GOALS

    • get Winter Lab out on time (instead I'm doing this so we're off to a great start folks)
    • more ships (pls hit me up, I have a slough of characters that I need to hurl out >D tropes I am drawn to: bodyguard, forced proximity, fake dating, enemies to lovers, grumpy + sunshine)
    • consistent posting/presence
    • stop being so harsh on myself about my characters and writing

    REAL LIFE GOALS
    • start planning a wedding (pray for me pls)
    • make and more importantly stick to a budget
    • read more books! an extension of this will be that I need to keep to this order of obtaining them: my own shelf —> the library —> second hand bookstore —> local bookstore —> bookshop.org —> buy from a larger book retailer
    • train the cat to walk on a lead
    • exercise more often
    • take an acting class

    So for next year
    Charming:
    Get 2 more characters to 200
    Plot more!
    Some ships or Romances - ideally a scandalous/toxic relationship
    Create 2 more characters - and get them to 75

    RL Goals:
    Excercise more often - I started before Christmas but I'd like to get back to running daily.
    Read 52 books this year

    I generally avoid resolutions because they never work well for me, but here's to trying xD

    REAL LIFE GOALS:

    Focus on the health/mental health journey more. Especially when it involves remembering to take meds.
    Stick to the weekly cleaning chart.
    Exercise 3-4x a week. Getting back to crossfit would be ideal.


    CHARMING GOALS:
    Charming night once weekly, post everywhere owed - not just favorites.
    Get a new plot off the ground, stop just saying you want one.
    Post a networking on the board to help develop more IC connections that aren't romantic.
