Sometimes it's a big shocker when you realize that it's not the beginning of the year anymore and the year is almost 3/4's of the way over. That's where I am at right now as I finish one class and get ready to start 4 more. Yes, you read that right, 4 classes. I am following in the footsteps of one of my friends by tragically overfilling my schedule so that I have no social life whatsoever. I really don't know how some of you younger people have been able to do this all. And by younger I mean everyone under the age of 27. All in all though, August has been pretty good for me. So I wanted to take a moment to check in and write up some goals that I have for the next few weeks. Because everything makes more sense when you spill your guts out right?!
August Check In
I've been playing catch up with my class all summer. But with 2 more assignments and a final project left, I am attempting to finish all 3 this weekend. Especially since I start a full course load on the 22nd.
My final project is going to be based off of my blog. I'm hoping and praying to all of the gods out there that I do really well with it.
Who is TERRIFIED to start this next semester? This girl! For the past couple years I have just been doing classes that interest me. Now I am actually doing classes that will count for a transfer program into ASU. I have to do well in all of these courses, there are no other options for me other than get an A in each of them.
I've got no idea where I am with the business aspect of my blog. I really need to catch up on everything and follow up with some pending to do lists before I settle down for the semester.
So I went a little spend crazy over the past couple of months, and I am definitely feeling it now. Looking back on it only 3 of the things that I purchased other than necessities like food and gas, were relevant or needed.
There are 15 posts that are 3/4's of the way done sitting in my drafts folder. This is like a huge HUGE partial win for me. I also have 4 old posts that just need the photos and graphics to go with them and then I can re post them.
August Goals for Blog, Biz, and Life
My first stop would be to finish those 15 posts that are almost done. It may just be me but I think that is a great first step and all I really need is to proof and do the graphics for them. So hopefully I can really make that happen by the end of the August if not the end of the week.
Schedule more social media posts for August and clean up my SM accounts. The Blog Boss Babe challenge for the month made me realize that none of my accounts were linked, and man are they rough. So I really need to focus on getting that cleared up.
Clean out my email. OY VEY with the poodles already! My email is god awful, and I am way behind on filing everything away and replying to emails that it is so stressful. That is the first little project I need to get done ASAP.
My major goal for the next 3 months is to get back on budget. Sadly this means that I have to cancel a bunch of subscriptions and cook almost every meal. But I really hate not having a savings for any emergencies, which is where I am at now.
Change up my About page, because it is not horrible but definitely not the best. It's just really hard to talk about yourself when you are so introverted like I am. (More to come about the introvert part.)
Get all of my books for School, which I think is literally the most expensive part of college.
