ey guys! I feel like I haven't blogged in such a while. Most of what you've seen has been prescheduled! I am so busy at college, and this site has honestly been so missed. It felt so good this Saturday afternoon to type my feelings/goals down for today's post. I hope all is well, and I'll be back later this week with a super fun post.

My August goals...

1. Soda Detox | I did this, but towards the end of the month I became more lose. Does that count? lol.

2. Make Time to Journal | I have accomplished more journal entries this month. Of course, I'd love to write more, but such is life.

3. Explore New Places | YES! I can cross this off my list. I explored so many new beaches, coffee shops, and even shopping malls since I've been at VU.

4. Eliminate Anxiety | Perhaps my grip is stronger, but it's something that just comes with change.

5. Lose 10 Pounds | I believe it's around 5-6, so not quite 10. But progress is wonderful.

September goals...

1. Go Somewhere New By Myself | There's so many awesome coffee shops to go to in Costa Mesa, I would love to venture off campus and have some alone time studying or blogging one afternoon. Sometimes I just need to clear my head.

2. Study Hard | Wow my homework is a lot. I'm an english major, so the volume of reading is triple the amount of a normal class, for all my classes! I want to keep my focus, and work hard for all my essays.

3. Blog Post on What the Lord Has Shown Me | The Lord has been showing me so many things these past three weeks, I would love to write a devo/heart to heart post on my feelings right now. Let's see if it ever becomes live though...

4. Schedule 5 More Posts | Oh my gosh! I literally haven't blogged at all since being gone. Going to work on this in September.

5. Attend Chapel | I'm not putting a limit on this one, because it's something I want to occur naturally. My faith has been strengthened so much while being at college, and the chapel is always a highlight of my day. So even when things become busy, chapel is priority.


  1. Sounds like you're doing great at moving towards your goals! And 5-6 pounds in a month is a LOT for most people, so big kudos to you on that! The only time I ever lost 10 pounds in a month was when I went suuuper extreme with my diet, and I wouldn't recommend that to anyone---it's not sustainable, and the weight came right back on when I went to back to how I was eating before. Now I just do the slow and steady thing so that when it comes off, it (usually) stays off.

    Ah, being an English major...the reading load is seriously so insane. I remember one semester when I was taking 4 English classes, and most weeks, my assigned page count was 1,500+. Insanity. Good luck to you!

    1. Thanks Torrie!! Yes being an English major has taken up more time than I thought, haha. But my classes are very rewarding, so I think I made the right call. :)

  2. Also, I was thinking that when I was in college, I wish I would have done a post at some point at the end of each semester or year where I summarized all that I'd been assigned to read that semester. So I guess I'm just saying that if that sounds interesting enough for you to post about, I would love to read it!
