    Will you learn a new language this year?

    We asked our BuzzFeed Community to tell us what their goals are for 2020, and here they are:

    1.

    "Mine is to become better at speaking German. I have been learning for about a year but am still not that good – by the end of the year I want to be able to hold a conversation with a native German."

    "In 2020 my main goal is to try and not sweat the small stuff and be more patient. I'm a pretty time-efficient person but sometimes I need to relax a little and be a bit more flexible with my way of thinking. This way I won't let little things like someone being 5 minutes late play on my mind and ruin experiences for me – there are bigger problems in the world!"

    "I want to achieve a better work/life balance. I changed jobs at the beginning of the year, and I let it completely just wreck my mental health. I want to do better at taking time for myself. On that note, I want to start practicing my ukulele again, too."

    "My main goal is to lose some weight – I’ve gained some since my mum died 18 months ago. Hopefully then, I will be able to get rid of my depression and anxiety too! I’m coming for you 2020!!!"

    "I really want to learn sign language. I think it’s a whole amazing language that many people don’t think to learn. It will be so rewarding to at least be able to string a couple of sentences together by the end of next year."

    "My goal is to become a healthier person. I know this one is said a lot, but I want to focus on all aspects that make me healthy. I am looking to lose weight, and improve my mental health. I’m hoping this new decade can lead to tons of new, positive changes for me!"

    "To not take everything so seriously and have fun with random moments again.

    I used to be the random dancer, spontaneous 'let’s do it' type and I want to be that again rather than just the 'management type.'"

    "Less social media and more self-love and self-care."

    "I want to apply for grad school this year and start prioritizing my health, i.e. being more cognizant about what I’m eating, how often I’m drinking, and getting into an exercise routine I can stick with."

    "Before the start of a new year, I always write a list of things I want to do – read 25 books, say 'yes' more, that sort of thing. For this year, my big goal is to travel to three new countries. Not sure where those three countries will be, but I've got Cuba, Japan, and Bosnia!"
