Current Goals

I haven't shared my current goals for a while, so I thought it would be fun to talk about them! My goals are usually very broad to make them easier to accomplish. I've always felt that setting goals is important; it motivates a person and gives something to look forward to.

o n e  || have a good freshman year
My first day of classes is September 1st -- eek! I'm extremely nervous but also very excited. Attending college will definitely be way different than attending high school, but I think I'm ready for this next step in my life. I'm hoping to have a good year overall -- in terms of academics, friends, and work. Here's to a new beginning!

t w o  || drink more water
I've definitely cut back on my soda intake this past month, which I'm really happy about. I've noticed that I kind of forget to drink water though -- I don't even realize when I'm thirsty. My goal is to constantly have my water bottle near me so I'm reminded to keep drinking. Lemon water is my weakness so adding a few lemon wedges would be a huge help!

t h r e e  || earn more money
As some of you may know, I've made the decision to continue working during the school year. I'm hoping to not only earn money through the part-time job I've had the past two years but also through other means. How can I monetize my blog more? Are there any freelance opportunities for me to pick up? This goal will involve lots of researching and learning, but it will totally be worth it.

f o u r  || post consistently
I've definitely gotten back into posting consistently on the blog, especially after I rebranded. It has been really easy to keep up with blogging this past month or so because it's summer and I've had the time! I'm really worried that I'll fall out of my blogging grind once school comes around -- especially because I'm going to have to juggle college, a social life, work, and sleep. I'm determined to set up a blogging schedule that works for me to make sure I don't take a blogging break again!

f i v e  || read two books per month
I've mentioned a few times that I always read a crazy amount of books over the summer because of all of the time I've missed during the school year. I've always been a bookworm, and reading has such a great effect on me. It relieves my stress and relaxes me, which are two things I need to have once school starts. I want to try to read two books per month. I think it should be manageable because it averages out to one book every two weeks -- let's hope I can read more than that!

What are your current goals?


  1. You're going to have such an amazing time in college I'm sure! Freshman year is such a big year. It truly was life changing for me- I hope it's the same for you!
    Personally I didn't work my freshman year of college, but have worked part-time every year since. It can be rough sometimes but usually is very manageable and can absolutely help to teach you time management skills!!

    Enjoy your end of summer!
