Before we all know it, 2016 will be over. How was your October? Did you get to do all the fall things you wanted to? I’m pretty sure I knocked everything off my list.. calling that a win! November is always kind of a meh month to me. Sure – I love Thanksgiving. But that’s about the only thing in November that I look forward to. So for November, I’m currently…
Planning: My 10 year high school reunion is on Black Friday. Another classmate & I are putting the finishing touches on the evening. I’m hoping it comes together nicely for the people who are going. I’m excited to pick an outfit & have a night out & catch up with people I haven’t seen or spoken to in almost 10 years.
Listening to: Cole Swindell released a smaller album last week. My friend Kristin & I are seeing him this month & of course I need to make sure I can sing along to his songs!
Drinking: I just found out what to tell Starbucks when I don’t want their scalding hot lattes to burn my mouth… “Kids temperature”. Although when they made it “kids temperature” it still burned my tongue. Thx barista. 🙂
Watching: The Blacklist is really heating up. I’m towards the end of the first season & seem to end each episode now with a “WTF” jaw drop. I also started Containment which was shown as a limited series & is now on Netflix. It’s about a wide spread outbreak of a virus that basically starts killing everyone *cue nightmares* – but Chris Wood is in it, & you probably don’t know who that is but he’s amazing & stunning to look at. The show isn’t half bad either. There’s only 1 season so I’ll get through it pretty quickly.
Eating: Junk. And it makes me feel really guilty. In the last week, I have had zero time to grocery shop.. therefore I’ve been spending a boatload of money eating out for breakfast, lunch & dinner. Straight up awful. This month WILL be different.
Looking forward to: My class reunion, Thanksgiving with my friend Rachel’s family, & running the Sewickley 5k Turkey Trot.
Loving: Blogging & using Instagram to promote my blog posts. I’ve bee researching ways to do better for my readers & followers & it’s been really fun learning about blogging!
And something new I want to start including with these posts – monthly goals. I think it’s really important to constantly have a goal in your mind – whether you can achieve it in a day, a week, a month, a year, etc. Goals keep you motivated & they allow you to think about what you would like to accomplish in your day to day life. I’m hoping that creating goals for myself will keep me motivated & keep my “eye on the prize” so to speak. 🙂
Goals for November:
- Exercise 3 days a week, at least one of them being a running day.
- Complete all of my Math homework within 3-4 days after Monday night’s class so that it stays fresh in my mind.
- No fast food (unless lunch with a friend is Chipotle or something, then that’s ok)
- Read 1 book – TV off at 8:30pm on nights that I don’t have class
To start out, that amount of goals seems reasonable. Going forward, I may add more or I may have less depending on the month.
What are your goals for November? Are they realistic? Would you be interested in reading a post on how to set goals for yourself?
Happy November, all. I hope you all have a blessed month! ❤
