Why November 2017 Was Awesome + Goals

Why NovemberWas Awesome

Another month down and if I’m being completely honest, I’m okay with this one, I like thanksgiving fine but my heart truly lies with the Christmas season and November being over means it is time to kick off December. But, this post is about November, not December so I will focus on November for just a little while longer.

Why October 2017 Was Awesome + Goals

Why OctoberWas Awesome

I can’t believe that October is over, I feel like I blinked and there went October, it has been one of the quicker months this year. Also, Happy Halloween. I really debated doing a Halloween themed post today, but if I’m being honest, I’m not really the biggest Halloween fan and haven’t done anything up until this point, so I figured why do anything Halloween related now. Let’s talk about this month.

Why June 2017 Was Awesome + Goals

Why June 2017Was Awesome

I’m sure everyone is tired of hearing this by now, but I can’t believe another month has gone by, this one disappeared in a blink of the eye, and to make it worse the year is already half way over. How in the hell did that happen? I’m not sure but I don’t really think there is much that I can do about it. I’m honestly not really surprised that this month went by so quickly, I have been busy, which I think may be clear by the fact that I am writing this the evening of June 29th and I still don’t have a July schedule for the blog ready. Usually, I have that done the first week of the previous month, but nope not yet, I’m hoping to catch up on a bunch of stuff this weekend. We’ll see how that goes.

Anyway, let’s get into talking about the busy month of June, at the beginning of the month I flew back home! Which means Orlando Florida, it was really weird being apart from my fiance seeing as we’ve spent pretty much an entire year and a half together, but it was still fun and I’m super happy I went. When I went it rained pretty much the entire week, which seemed about right but once again I still had fun. The rain did ruin some of my plans, as you could expect, I planned on going to the beach and I didn’t get to go, I also didn’t get to go outlet shopping but that wasn’t as big of a deal. I am very sad I didn’t get to go to the beach, sure there are beaches near where I live but they aren’t Florida beaches.

I did get to do some shopping, hang out with my family and some friends, ate a ton of my favorite foods that I can’t get in Virginia and had an all around a great time. Also, I went to Disney World! That was super exciting and really fun, I went with a good friend of mine and it was a great day. It did rain for a little bit but we timed it perfectly and had lunch when it was raining. We rode some rides, saw a few shows and of course I picked up a bag of cotton candy.

Once I got home I’m not sure what happened, but I was super busy at work and just have barely had time to catch up on blog things, I’ve kept up with everything else that I’m doing pretty well and while I’ve kept up with all the posts on here, I’ve been writing the day before for a little while. I’m hoping everything calms down a little bit and I can get some of my stuff together, but we’ll see.

Now, I’m going to talk about something that I don’t usually do in this post but am thinking about doing from now on, that is talking about my goals for the upcoming month. This seemed like a good idea and something that I wanted to try out, some months I may have a bunch of goals and others I may have only one but I plan on doing this at the bottom of each months post. So now let’s talk about some goals I have for the month of July.

No Buy. This is something that I plan on setting for myself and hopefully, I’ll be able to do it. I’ve got too much stuff and have purchased a ton this month, so for July I’m going to try not to purchase anything, with the exception of one sale I am going to. Already breaking my no buy, but does it really count if I say it beforehand as an exception?

Eating Better. This is still something that I am struggling with and I really want to complete this, even though I’m not sure there is really completing this. I’m hopefully going to focus in on this one.

I want to continue beating my previous months views. I think this one is pretty straightforward, every month this year my blog has grown and each month I get more views then the last one. I plan on going back to posting four times a week instead of five, mostly because five was very difficult, sure I have tons of ideas but keeping up with things was hard so I think four days a week will be plenty. I’m hoping to keep up with my views growing, I’m a little nervous with less posts next month but we’ll see.

Was June an awesome month for you?

Why April 2017 Was Awesome!

Why April Was Awesome

I think is is safe to say that my life is boring, somehow last month was more interesting even though nothing really went on, except for the cat of course. That was exciting.  But, this month was not, somehow even when this month felt like it was dragging on forever and was never going to end, nothing even remotely exciting went on. Maybe that was what it felt like it went on forever. Did anyone else feel like April would never end?

Anyway, I’m still going to talk about this past month a little bit because that is what I do and it is something that I want to keep track of, just because I think it is nice to be able to look back at this kind of thing, even if it’s a little on the boring and mundane side of things.

This month was April, I’ve been mini golfing twice and have lost it two times so far, but it was very fun and I really enjoyed it, so that was a thing that happened. It was also my fiance’s birthday this month, which was a pretty fun day, we took off from work for the most part and enjoyed the day. We had breakfast together, went mini golfing, had dinner and pie and it was just a really nice and fairly chill day.

Nothing is really new on the work front, I’m working 40-45 hours on average, nothing really exciting there but I am doing better. I’m also still working out four days a week, haven’t missed a day this month and I plan on trying to challenge myself a bit by working at 5 times a week in May, we’ll see how that goes and if it sticks. I’m excited to give it a go but it also sounds hard.

Blogwise I do have something slightly exciting, I’ve had more views this month than I have any other month and it’s been that way for a few months now, so I’m excited that I’m still growing and getting better at blogging. Woot!

The other thing that hasn’t happened yet but it’s something that I want to put out there because I really need to stick to it, for the month of May I need to be on a no buy, I had a giant haul I posted recently and there is another one coming in May so, I really need to not buy anything new. I would try and extend this into June but I’m going to Florida for a few days and there is no way that I’m not going to buy things while I’m there, at least a couple of things.

And that has been the month of April, unexciting and not much to talk about.

How did April treat you guys?

Reasons Why December Was Awesome!

I know, I know, I just posted a end of year recap and now here I am talking about December. But I feel like I kind of rushed through my last couple of posts, mostly because I was feeling very rushed and this post I’ll have more time to work on and probably put a little bit more effort into it because of that. I also decided to write about December because I do these monthly and just because I wrapped up 2016 doesn’t mean I get to forget about what a fabulous month the last month of the year was.

Why October Was Awesome

Oh my gosh, October is over and that is so hard to believe, it’s already November and that’s just insane to think about. This year has gone by so quick but I’m not going to lie, I am very excited about it being November, I’m ready for this election to be over, I’m ready to go home and visit and I’m ready to start Christmas shopping. But this year has still flown by so fast, even if that is so cliche to say.

Reasons Why August Was Awesome

It’s that time of the month that everyones blog feed and youtube feed are cluttered with monthly favorite posts, which I will be adding to of course but first I have to get this post out of the way first and talk about this past month, so instead of rambling on a lot I’m just going to jump into chatting about August.

Reasons Why July Was Awesome

It’s the end of the month once again, so it’s time to say goodbye to July and hello to August. Once again I’m posting on the last day of the month and I’m a little bit curious how long I’m going to be able to do that. I typed that and went and checked and the next time I’ll be posting this at the end of the month or the beginning of the next is in September, so this is the last time for a little bit. None of this really matters at all so let’s get into talking about this past month.

Reasons Why June Was Awesome

I think at this point this series has changed quite a bit since I started it at the beginning of the year, I think it’s come a fair amount of the past six months, nothing insanely different but it has had a large shift I think. At this point I think I’m throwing everything out there, not just the good things but the mundane and on occasion the bad things that are going on in my life, I think it’s more realistic this way too. I’ve also been writing this post all month a little bit here and there, that way I don’t miss anything and won’t be left with something really very short and boring, plus I won’t forget anything that way.
