You’re My September Song
Since I’m going to be heading back to university this month I decided I should set myself some goals in which will give me something else to do that will distract from all the stress of going into the second year…after all this year actually counts towards my degree! (Ah!) I must say September is one of my favourite months of the year, it’s where change is so obvious and I feel I have a chance to make the changes I wish to in my life as well as try out new things that I might not have been willing to try before.
01. Knuckle down with uni work
Last year I put in the minimal effort where my work was considered and even though it still got me decent grades this year I am aiming for high 2:1s and firsts since I know I am actually able to achieve these if I actually put the effort in. Knuckling down will also involve actually attending more classes than I miss; I was guilty of missing classes to get more sleep or just because I didn’t have the energy to go.
02. Spend time meeting new people
03. Get more organised
It may seem like I have my life together, but trust me, I really don’t! I’m always forgetting things, losing track of deadlines and forgetting when my doctor’s appointments are…probably not the best thing to being doing. In an attempt to get more organised I’ve purchased a 17-month planner from Ban.do and so far I absolutely adore it; the fact that it has dividers for each month, a calendar, notes pages and weekly views just means I have no reason to not be organised. Personally, I plan on using this for university, blogging and my personal life rather than having separate diaries.
04. Start acting more like an adult
I’m close to being twenty and it’s about time I started to act like it, I’d like to be a lot more serious about the things I do; such as actually working more than the odd shift so that I can start saving up for the things I want rather than just paying out for them and dealing with the consequences later. I’d also like to be able to go out for a drink with friends without ending up completely smashed like the world’s supply of alcohol is going to disappear any day soon.
05. Spend quality time by myself
06. Excel at blogging
I’m into my fifth month of blogging (how has it gone that quickly!?) and it’s safe to say I am still as much in love with it as when I first started out. I like to think that my blog has come along in leaps and bounds, it’s obvious that I’m a lot more active within the blogging community and I recently received my first PR opportunity. My blog stats are a lot higher than I ever could have imagined for so early into my journey; I just hope to continue going in the positive direction that I am and cannot wait for what awaits around every corner.
07. Develop a skin care routine
Also this month
